                It is a rather good location in the central street of Santa Barbara. You can easily walk to the main activities and restourants. Easy access to highway. The open pool in the hotel could also be used. Staff id rather friendly,rooms are clean.

                The location was quite nice.

                Outdated rooms and odd setup.

                Our room was huge. We were there to move our daughter to college, so we had a ton of luggage and dorm room supplies; the room had 2 king-size beds and there was plenty of room leftover. Also, the beds were comfy, and the pool area was nice. It's just a few blocks from the busy shopping/restaurant part of State Street.

                The hotel recently changed to a Days Inn, but does not quite yet meet up to the standards of their other hotels. It's a very old property, probably built in the 60s, and needs some updating. Our biggest beef was the joke of a "breakfast" they served--some coffee, lukewarm hot water for hot chocolate & tea, and some plastic-wrapped stale muffins and danishes. There is a huge area for the breakfast room in the lobby, and we were expecting at least some fruit/cereal or how about a microwave and oatmeal or some other hot options, especially considering the price we were paying. It's across the street from a small market, and we ended up eating breakfast there most mornings, or getting some milk & cereal there & eating it in our room.

                We've stayed at this hotel several times while our son was attending college there and it was the El Prado Inn. I guess it was just bad luck this time. The first room, #229, the air conditioner didn't work. The next day they moved us to #241. This room had a very bad mold problem. The smell was horrific. I mentioned this to the desk clerk when we checked out. I told him obviousely there was previous water damage. He didn't seem too concerned, he said maybe someone spilled some water. I'm sure this room has smelled for quite some time, and I'm sure we are not the first to mention it. I think they are just ignoring complaints and just keep using the room. I will be filing a complaint with the health department.

                Near the shopping areas/movies/concert hall. Covered parking garages.

                A little expensive for a budget inn. It just recently was purchased and converted to a Days Inn, hopefully they will put more money into it to give you more value.

                It was very convenient, close to everything. It's a little dated & need to be renovated but you can't complain about the price! :)

                The proximity to State Street and Downtown Santa Barbara.

                The cost was outragous. Especially since we are talking about the hotel we are. slightly nicer then a Motel 6, but not by much. Personally I would have rather stayed in a Motel 6, at least then the AC would have worked. The AC did not work in our room, they knew about it yet still booked us into it. So they failed to discount our room as promised and moved us into another room. Once in the second room, which was nice, one of the two ACs for that unit did not work. Staff was unaware there was even a second AC in this unit. The one AC that did work did so well but was only able to cool the bedroom, not the bath or living room areas.

                Air conditioning unit did not work, the air was stuffy and warm, it was difficult to sleep.

                I liked the price of the room. The bathroom looked recently refurbished and had more surfaces to put pills, toiletries, etc. I liked the breakfast area in the lobby with the TV. I liked the general location. There was a very nice deli-grocery store across the street which was a great convenience. We could walk to the downtown area for shopping and shows. There was good bus service within walking distance.

                There were small scuff marks on the walls; the table-top was a bit worn looking. The stopper on the bathroom sink didn't work smoothly. Everything else was fine

              • Couple

                The location couldn't be better.

                Half of the lights in the bathroom didn't work. Wouldn't give me beach towels. Air conditioning didn't work. Request late check-out and was only given a half hour. Unfriendly, unhelpful front desk staff. Did not complain but brought the negatives to their attention when I checked out. I'm in the same industry.
