"Not Good"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I was really disappointed in this hotel. We had two rooms booked for two nights and they were both so small that it was uncomfortable for two people to enjoy. The carpets were filthy and there was construction equipment stacked outside the window. I paid over $1250 for these rooms and would NEVER recommend this hotel to anyone.

"Nice, clean room in a great location."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
HSB is well located on the lower end of State Street, Santa Barbara. Took advantage of this to attend concert at SB Bowl, have late night snack after concert and stay overnight. Enjoyed a nice breakfast at Joe's across the street and a nice stroll along State Street the next morning. HSB is easy to get to; parking with valet was convenient. Staff is friendly and room clean. Would definitely consider another stay at HSB in the future!
