The garden was well cared for and a lovely amenity. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy the lovely space. The pool area was pleasant and clean. We enjoyed the ping-pong table that was out on the upper patio.
The breakfast bar was one of the most complete that we've experienced in this level of hotel: boiled eggs, frittata, sausage, bagels and cream cheese, yogurt, toast, cold cereal, fresh fruit, espresso machine and more.
Our room had two queen sized beds. The remote was in one of those "fresh remote" bags. The white duvet on the bed was sandwiched between two white sheets instead of a difficult to remove cover. I felt as though the staff was making an extra effort to show that they take cleanliness seriously. Very nice. Plenty of towels and toiletries. The air conditioner and fan worked properly and provided white noise.
The train tracks are nearby and there are frequent trains that go through the area. We didn't find this to be a problem, but some may. In spite of the nice garden area, there is a fair amount of road noise. We didn't find this to be a problem due to the ability to run the fan all night.
The location was conveniently located relative to the UCSB campus, beaches and the greater Santa Barbara area with our rental car. Plenty of restaurants and a grocery store within walking distance.
A notice in the room indicated that this hotel is undergoing renovations for the next several months between the hours of 10am-4pm. We didn't experience any disruption during our stay. The renovations should help update the well worn wall coverings, furniture and bathrooms.
