Well, It’s Close to the Beach
Reviewed 3 days ago

The resort is a hotel across the street from the beach. The amenities are fine, if you think they’re perfect. Basically don’t go with any special needs or requests or anything because there’s is absolutely no personal attention paid to your needs after you check in and they have your credit card on file. Don’t request a room change due to noise or the view or smell of the hallway. They’ll say there’s nothing available without increasing your rate another $80-100/night.

Just ok.

Wish I could write a better review. When we walked in we were excited to see a beautiful lobby area. When we arrived at our room we were so disappointed. Our view was of the parking lot and Amtrak train passing by. The Amtrak train horns blow early in the morning. Our stay was definitely not worthy of 4 star rating. Wish I could write a better review, but sadly disappointed.

Excellent service

Great stay on boardwalk.
Excellent service with wine tasting and free bikes. Large complex with only three story buildings. Large reception area with gift shop and two restaurants. Across from ocean with beautiful views. Efficient and friendly staff. Would definitely stay again.

Worth the cost

Stayed 3 nights for an on-site event. Will definitely go back. The pier and restaurants were within walking distance. Onsite Starbucks was a plus as well. I appreciated the fact that they did not charge an early check in fee. Not to mention they gave us a better view by just asking.

very nice place
Reviewed 6 days ago

Nice clean rooms. Clean property. Nice size TV in room. No DVD player. Continental breakfast included for honors members $8 to upgrade for hot meals worth the upgrade. This property is across the street from the beach I would not consider it beachfront like the Embassy Suites in Oxnard. Good location. Friendly staff. If you were looking for actual beachfront property where you open the balcony doors and you're at the beach I would suggest Embassy Suites Oxnard oh, but this is a beautiful place to stay in Santa Barbara
