We've stayed in the various smaller motels in SB and decided to step up a bit for our last trip. The hotel is very nicely fitted out but as others have pointed out, the rooms are small. Don't expect a stunning view either. We had an issue with a loose and leaking showerhead which was quickly fixed.
The beach is 2 mins walk away and if you walk North on State St under the underpass (a little dark but seems perfectly safe to me) then you hit the main drag with all the shops and bars.
The staff recommended some good restaurants including Eureka, a burgers/craft beer place and Los Arroyos, a Mexican just off State on W Figueroa. Santa Barbara Roasting does great coffee and Backyard Bowls next door is well worth a visit. We always head to Sushi Go Go in the harbor.
