**Please note pool will be closed March 3rd through March 11th.** Fess Parker's Doubletree Resort in Santa Barbara is an exceptional, luxury beachfront resort facing the Pacific Ocean 90 miles north of Los Angeles, California. Walk to downtown Santa Barbara's eclectic State Street corridor. Our full-service, 24-acre Spanish Colonial style resort has something special for everyone - from tennis courts and basketball to shuffleboard and a putting green. Light and bright Mission-influenced rooms, suites and executive accommodations feature serene mountain, garden or ocean views from terrace or balcony. High-speed wireless internet access is available throughout the hotel. We're pet-friendly and family-friendly, with a wide variety of seasonal childrens' programs, a playground and babysitting service. Enjoy California Continental cuisine in a casual setting at the Cafe Los Arcos for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For fine dining, we invite you to savor exquisitely prepared beef and fresh seafood at Rodney's Steakhouse and sip our area's delicious wines. Let our knowledgeable Concierge or Recreation Desk assist with outings like wine country tours, sailing or fishing charters, whale watching, and horseback riding. Be pampered at our salon or spa. Need a tee time? Play excellent courses with one-of-a-kind views, like Glenn Annie overlooking the coast and historic Rancho San Marcos. Bask on the sundeck by our heated outdoor pool. Hike, bike, visit Stearns Wharf, the Mission and popular Santa Barbara attractions like the Zoo, Botanical Gardens, Courthouse and museums. Surrounded by history, culture and recreational paradise, you'll love staying with us. For group and special events, we offer newly renovated ballrooms, elegant meeting spaces, and full banquet and catering facilities. Our impressive outdoor Plaza del Sol overlooking the Pacific can accommodate up to 1,000 guests. We also offer a full complement of business amenities, including video conferencing. We are pleased to provide complimentary transportation to and from the Santa Barbara Airport. Let our caring, professional staff make your California dreams come true. As always - our very special signature warm chocolate chip cookie at check-in.

Above average

This resort is very nice. Rooms were very neat and clean. Did not like the fact that we had to pay for parking, have never stayed at any resort prior to this one that we were charged extra for parking. The fitness center had many machines that were not working.

best hotel ever stayed at

the resort was great. It was the best stay i have ever had. The staff was friendly, check in was fast and all the little touches like the complimentary warm cookies were great. The room was very clean. The beach was right across the street , we were there in less than a five minute walk. It was on of the best trips ever.

Horrible, will never go back

We did not get what we exspected at all, the days in have nicer rooms, we paid about 500 a night for a tiny room, that had a leak in the ceiling vent, the bed was very uncomfortable, they charged us 18 dollars a day for parking, even though the gate was open for everyone, they gave us hand soap but no soap for our bodys, ever, that was a first, the room was last decorated in the 70's mabey, there where homeless people every where, there was charges for everything, including a 22% gratuity for room service and a 5 dollar charge to eat it in your room, im a great tipper, but that wasnt cool, and isnt room service supposed to be eaten the room, and not that it was there fault but the water was really dirty, brown at the shore line. Just not what i exspected to surprise my wife with for our ten year anniversary. it looks nothing like what they showed on the internet. for what we paid for this trip i exspected better quality. iv stayed at a four diamond hotel before and this was not it.

Would come back again

The staff was friendly and helpful. We received warm chocolate chip cookies on arrival. The grounds were beautiful and the rooms were comfortable. The hotel is in a great location. Just far enough from State Street but close enough to walk to anywhere. We found a quaint romantic French Restaurant called "Pacific Crepes" which were to die for. A great mom and pop place. The waiter was very French

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Everything is close by. State Street is a short 30-45 minute walk. Great place to walk or jog along the beach to the Pier and have lunch at "The Harbor Restaurant" They are also dog friendly
