This is ridiculous..I paid almost $400 for a what should be a 2 star hotel...their elevator was being " remodeled" so a three floor walk up...no valet parking even though you paid for the valet...and no breakfast because of the 'conditions'..no be aware that they have to post that the elevator is not in service because of disability act...that every other hotel in SB offered breakfast. Charging $15 for non valet parking is crap. I could have stayed home in Santa Monica and paid less!
