We were upgraded to room 133 at the back of the hotel, which features a small kitchen and dining area. The decor is very nice, sort of updated beach deco. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We needed to use the fireplace at night to stay warm when the temperature dropped and we appreciated the extra blanket! We did hear the train several times each night, as well as early-morning traffic from the nearby 101, but otherwise it was quiet.
The breakfast had a variety of baked items with some unusual treats every day (e.g. Rice Krispie treats and almond croissants), as well as cold cereal, toast, hard-boiled eggs, fresh fruit, instant oatmeal, juice, milk and coffee. Breakfast was eaten outside at several tables or could be brought back to your room.
The hotel is located right near East Beach, a nice location but about 1 1/4 miles and a long walk from Stearns Wharf. However, we found driving and parking around the town to be very easy.
We would definitely recommend this hotel as a very pleasant place to stay in Santa Barbara.
