We came on a Thursday and they were having a Recession-Busting Weekday deal on their website. We got a king room, walk-in shower, lcd tv, mini-fridge, microwave, pool, and hot tub for $71/night.
My wife is a freak about motel rooms (she commonly brings her own blanket to sleep on top of) and she was surprised about how clean the bed looked. The bathroom and floor was clean.
It's standard motel fare and it's not on the beach, but who can complain when a lot of other stuff in Santa Barbara is $125-$150/night? There's a free breakfast with cereal, oatmeal, and donuts (again, standard motel stuff). They do have free dvd rental, which is nice. We weren't awaken with sirens or yelling. It seems to be a decent neighborhood. I haven't been in the pool or hot tub, but they looked fine. They also have deluxe rooms which are right at the pool. The floor was a little creaky, but not bad. The bed didn't squeek, which is always nice. There's also free wifi in the room. It looked like they had some laptops in the lobby, if you didn't bring one.
Overall - a good stay, although I don't know that I'd spend $100/night. At that rate, I'd probably just priceline something in Ventura.
