We stayed in this hotel for just one night and found it to be perfect for what we needed. Parking was right next door (and valet parking available too if needed) and check-in was very quick. This is an older building in the style typical of those found in the central area of Santa Barbara. Our room was on the second floor of the 'main' building and whilst some other reviewers have commented on the small size of the room, we found it to be fine - although yes it is a little smaller than rooms found in the 'cookie cutter' type hotel buildings. Whilst our room faced the street at the front of the hotel, there was not a lot of noise - it is not a busy street at all.
Location-wise it is half a block to State Street which has no end of shops and restaurants. One block to Starbucks, and around a 10 minute walk to the beach and wharf. Overall, our stay was fine and nothing to complain about.
