This is a VERY old property in a great location that's within close proximity to great restaurants and shopping. A small market is directly across the street. Indeed, as others have said, this place is currently being remodeled (currently during April 2014) and the parking lot is a mess. Construction related noise starts early in the morning. My room has newer carpets, paint and a newly rebuilt bathroom. Someone got overzealous with caulking around the toilet and placed a smaller, standard toilet seat on a noisy "vacuum flush" toilet that needs a long-boy seat. Toilets in other rooms are so loud, I can hear them in my room throughout the night. There isn't any way to make the walls, floors/ceilings any more soundproof. There also appears to be fleas on the living room sofa.
If noise doesn't bother you, this is an affordable (for Santa Barbara prices) place to stay in a good location. I, however, am easily disturbed by noise and can only give a poor rating.
Lastly, it is odd that upon check-in, I've already been fully charged for my three nights stay. I've never experienced this practice in any of my North American travels.
