How is the Amtrak from San Diego to Santa Barbara?

We are considering taking the train from San Diego up to Santa Barbara to stay for several days in the Fall. Any input on this train trip would be appreciated.

For those looking at this thread for various reasons, I was surprised to learn that the train stops in Burbank next to BUR airport. With the prices of BOS-SBA, and son with a car in Santa Barbara, BOS-BUR and the train up and back is my next itinerary. I've taken the BOS-LAX (for the price break) run and a rental car countless times without a thought to this.

FWIW, son's GF, with family in San Diego and school at UCSB, takes the train between them fairly frequently, and says it's as good as beautiful in places, but looooong. It's every bit of the 5.5 hours mentioned above, and more.
