Not worth the cost. The entire place needs an upgrade. The rooms were shabby. The bathrooms somewhat old. No coffee or tea in the rooms. The main TV was not working. The AC was very noisy but did cool the place off.

This place has everything you need for a good stay in Santa Barbara. It’s a pity that their offering of breakfast pulls the impression down. It would have been so easy to change by having smaller but more seats in the breakfast area.

You'll have to walk to the beachfront and then up State Street, but it's about half an hour in total. Or you can walk to Stearns Wharf (about 10 minutes) and get the free shuttle up to the Downtown areas.

No views from our room. We were in the first floor. I would not expect great views, since the hotel is a block or so from the coast, and it is not a tall building.
