Liked: The property is located walking distance to all the attractions Santa Barbara has to offer. The room was clean, and comfortable.
Disliked: The hidden fees that were added to the bill, that were not reflected on itemized bill. Parking was not disclosed to be a fee upon arrival or when it was issued out by the front desk; on top of that, parking was limited and I was not even able to park in the parking lot until the last night of my stay. If you are charging your guest unknowingly for parking, you should at least make sure it?s available to them. If I had known I was to incur all these charges upon arrival, I would have stayed elsewhere.

Great hospitality from the front...

Liked: Although I understand it's about to get a renovation, The Wayfarer is slightly eclectic with a lobby library and some very nice acoustic guitars to pluck. The rooms are tiny but so cleverly laid out that it's possible not to notice, even for a big guy like me. Of particular note, a very very nice kitchen off the lobby allows you to cook your own meals and take advantage of local ingredients rather than going out to eat. A very appreciated feature for someone who's been camping and avoiding crowds during the pandemic.
Disliked: Just bummed that my short visit was during a pandemic -- I get the feeling this could be a very fun place under better circumstances.
