We were looking for a place to stay overnight and passed by this hotel so decided to give it a try, at $170 for an "ocean-view large room with jacuzzi". The room was on the upper level, on the far side from the beach. Yes, it had ocean view. But I saw a used Q-tip on the bottom of the cupboard and the floor felt sticky when walking barefooted. The "jacuzzi" was an old bath tub with some jet nozzles. The entire place was screaming for a throrough clean-up.
Breakfast was included but was pathetic: Coffee and rolls on a tiny board in the small reception. There are great cafés in Santa Barbara, so we went there.
