I really didn't enjoy staying here when I did a few months ago. The location is the best part by far- right across the way from the beach and close to a lot of good restaurants as well. The room was on the smaller side and right off of the driveway so noise was a constant thing all night and day. Really expensive as well to stay here and for everything that occurred I really wasn't that happy! The last time I was in Santa Barbara I stayed at the Sandman Inn (www.thesandmaninn.com). SO affordable and the rooms are nice and spacious! Very quaint as well, loved it!
