The best thing about this hotel is that it is on State Street steps from shopping and restaurants. It's also less than 1 mile from the beach, which can be easily walked. The elevator was out the weekend of our visit, and the hotel staff were trying to move people to the second (and more convenient floor) if they wished. Our room was small and basic, but clean, and for half the stay we didn't think we had a television (It was in the closet!). The decor for the hotel and rooms is a bit dated, especially the worn carpet on the stairs and in the hallways. However, the complimentary breakfast spread was impressive. The valet and front desk staff were professional, and the valet staff loaded our bags into our car after checkout (and before leaving). The price is very good for downtown Santa Barbara. We'd stay here again.
