Santa Barbara in the Sunshine

A travel blog entry by oski on Feb 23, 2014

We drove down to Santa Barbara for a two day trip. I needed to be at UCSB to conduct on campus interviews for potential recruits, so it was a perfect excuse to drive down and enjoy the central California sun. We have stopped several times in the SB area on our way to LA, but I haven't stayed the night there since I was a teenager and Jeremy never …

Highway One - so much love!

A travel blog entry by vee_vee

... the relatively short distance to get there, as the scenery was so breathtakingly spectacular we kept stopping to soak it all in. No words I write can possibly do any justice to the beauty we saw in that place. The highway wound along the sheer rocky cliffs with the ocean crashing on the rocks and beaches below. And what an ocean - the water was the most exquisite sapphire blue with sporadic splashes of turquoise. Each corner we turned brought another amazing vista. We ...

Santa Barbara - Jewel in the Crown

... really expensive and a day before my flight... Worst possible timing, as usual...

Santa Barbara is definitely worth staying for a few days. And I would have if I did not had decided to take the last seat on the night flight to Sydney on 26th July. Looking forward meeting up with my friends in Sydney.

Taking the Santa Barbara Airbus Shuttle from Santa Barbara to Los Angeles airport (3 hrs.) is a relaxing way to finish the San Francisco to LA cruising ...

Our trip starts.

... got on the aircraft we were informed that we would have food service in 2 hours time, which was a big surprise. Somehow we managed to eat both meals.

We sat almost at the back of the aircraft, so we were the first economy-class people loaded. That meant we were to sit in our seats for over 11 hours. We had the two seats nearest the window and I was afraid that ...

Terminal Longing in Santa Barbara

A travel blog entry by jbjourneyer


... for the two hours I spent waiting for my flight. When was the last time you said you enjoyed spending two hours in an airport?

I look back at the line of passengers making their way to the terminal and see a mother walking with her young child. The child wears a hat and dress and carries a pink bag and her excitement is obvious even from fifty yards away. I hope it is her first flight and her first time walking into the Santa Barbara Airport.

    Great beach front location, large room but a bit of a smell


    We booked this hotel for one night because of the great oceanfront location. It has an ideal location on the beach. The staff is friendly and very prompt to respond. The towels were out in the pool area and they immediately brought more out. We went inside to order drinks to take to the pool area and they sent a waiter out. The nighttime manager was helpful with restaurant recommendations. The day room manager was very friendly as well. The room itself was nice, clean, and large. The only problem that it smelled (the hallways and our room) of a sewer type smell. Not pleasant and my nose never got used to it. I probably wouldn't stay there again for this reason.

    Radisson was Spectacular!


    Service was good. The room service was prompt and delicious. Location is superb. The view from our room was of the ocean and the breeze was pleasant. To be improved was the air-conditioning units within the room (poor controls). Other than that small glitch the rooms were excellent.

    Loved the Radisson!


    My daughter and I stayed at the Santa Barbara Radisson over Memorial day weekend. I had reserved an ocean view room, but when we went to look at it, the view was obscured.

    I asked the bellman to call the front desk and see if another room was available. They immediately assigned us another room. When we saw it, we were thrilled! It was huge with incredible ocean views! The staff were all extremely pleasant and accomodating and the grounds were beautiful.

    The location is top notch - down the street from the zoo and across the street from East Beach - one of the nicest beaches in Santa Barbara. We were so pleased, we're returning this month!

    What a huge dissapointment


    Just spent a weekend at the Radison and my husband and I could not have been more dissapointed. Our experience of this property is that it is run-down, poorly managed & generally in need of some serious remodeling.

    Heavenly Location for a Beautiful Hotel


    I loved this hotel. It is in a gorgeous location overlooking East Beach near the heart of elegant downtown Santa Barbara. I stayed in a really cute "studio" room that was actually quite comfortable and very cozy, perfect for a couple. The decor was adobe tiles in the bathroom and nice bedding, clean carpets and sweet window furnishings. I loved the classy chairs and small antique-like tables in the room as well. My bed was comfortable and the room did not overlook the ocean. The hotel itself is one of the nicest looking on the strip, Mediterranean style roof and lush grounds abound. I loved my breakfast in the attractive breakfast Cantina the next morning. The food was very fresh and tasty and the service impeccable. I would recommend this gem to a couple on their romantic get-a-way or honeymoon; a little pricey, but what a find!!!!

    Will not go back!


    I booked on Hotwire and thought I was getting two beds. When I arrived I discovered only one bed was reserved. The front desk said there were no other rooms but I could stay at there "sister" hotel down the street. They said it would be $45.00 a night cheaper. That helped to ease the pain and thought that would be a good compromise, so I agreed.

    It wasn't worth it staying so far from the main Hotel. Well I talked to 3 different people after I returned home to try to get my refund. Bob in accounting said he would issue me a refund. I waited a month and never received it. I called back and now they said they are not going to refund it. Hotwire was also no help. I will never stay at a Radisson again.

    Nice, But Not Great


    While this hotel certainly is nice for a Radisson, I feel that the previous reviews on this board overstate things somewhat.

    The hotel was clean, and the room was fine. The location is directly accross from East Beach, but a long walk to State Street/Downtown.

    The restaurant/bar facilities did not look very inviting. The pool was modest, but nice.

    Basically, it's an OK place. If you go in expecting Radisson quality, you will probably be very pleased. If you go expecting 5* or excellent, as some reviews state, you will probably be disappointed. It's not a Four Seasons, nor a Marriott for that matter.

    We got a great internet rate of $95, so we were happy. If it had been more money, I would have preferred something a little closer to town, like the Doubletree.

    Above-average ocean front lodging


    If you get one of the recently renovated rooms, you'll enjoy your stay here. Our room had a large balcony overlooking the beach and ocean.

    Currently being renovated...


    This is quite a nice hotel if you get one of the renovated rooms. We were initially put in the ground floor, facing away from the beach. The room looked old, with worn fixtures and carpet and a functional (but no more) bathroom. We're generally not picky, so we stayed there the first night. We hadn't really noticed how dark and mildewy the room was until my wife woke the next morning with a sinus headache.

    What a Beautiful Location-great service-great for Families or Couples!


    What a Beautiful location-the view from our balcony was just Ocean and Palm trees! Our family enjoyed the heated pool and out walk across the street to one of the best Zoos we've been to yet! We had a wonderful breakfast in their restaurant-the Bistro 1111-looking right out on the water. The service was excellent-the bellman called us by name every day we were there and was very helpful with what to do in the area. We rented bicycles right there at the hotel and rode down the waterfront to downtown and the Pier. The art show along the water was a great surprise on Sunday morning. We will definitely return to this hotel again!
