Stayed here for one night because it’s near the airport. Got a ground floor room so we didn’t have to haul our luggage up a flight of stairs. Was incredibly noisy. Could hear people walking around above us. The floors were super squeaky. Could also hear all the plumbing. We had two white noise machines and could still hear everything. Beware!
Recently, we stayed at the Pacifica Suites in Santa Barbara. It is an “ok” 2 Star Hotel in Santa Barbara.
Unfortunately, it advertises itself as a 4-Star Resort.
- 1st, The rooms are tired and dated (pls see pictures). Everything seemed old and many things did not work. For instance, the hairdryer bolted on the wall did not work; the thermostat or A/C did not work (fortunately, it was cool outside - so we needed to open all the windows for the evening to keep the temp $ 325 per night (especially when the Ritz Carlton Resort was prices at $399 per night nearby).
