The room itself was fine without being anything special; clean, decent size with everything you'd expect. The service at the front desk was great, we were shown where everything in Santa Barbara was and how to get to it. We were also checked in early (12:30pm) after driving quite a long way which was nice. The hotel has good amenities including a pool, although it's much better to go down to the beach where all the action is. Our stay also included a free breakfast and free wifi, and I really felt the hotel took care of us and made a lot of effort. Good service!
Location wise you definitely need to have a car to get to State Street where all the shops are and the beach is at the end of. It's just one long, straight road but it's still about a 10 minute drive from one end to the other. Overall this is a great hotel for anyone who isn't planning to spend much time there other than to sleep, I'd happily stay there again.
