Don't get me wrong, the hotel was very nice. Clearly it has been renovated just recently and they put me in a very nice first floor two room suite.
The bathroom was quite large and nice, the bed was very comfortable, the internet worked well, and I had TVs in both rooms making it nice while working and lying in bed. The nicest feature was having a small patio. I was able to leave the patio door open and enjoy the beautiful weather while in the room.
The staff was very nice, accommodated a late check-out and I had a very nice conversation with the housekeeping staff.
My only gripe - including tax, the room ran my almost $300. Now please understand I knew it when I booked it, but I wanted to see the area on a weekend layover in Cali, so it was what I bargained for. But that is pretty expense for a Courtyard on a Friday night and it was not as if it was graduation weekend at UCSB.
Enjoy it if you are on business and the trip is deductible or if it is a special occasion. Otherwise, maybe try and find something a bit cheaper.
