Ew. What a dump. It's deceiving- the motel looks nice from the outside with plants and wicker furniture but our room was dark, dingy, and dirty. The furniture looks like it's 30+ years old; we couldn't even find a switch for the ceiling fan but I'm sure it would have made an imbalanced"wocka-wocka-wocka" sound anyway; needs a paint job; bathroom sink was pulled away from the wall; bathroom window didn't close all the way; breakfast was bitter coffee and smashed indiviually wrapped, calorie-laden pastries. Pay a few more dollars and stay somewhere else. It's a shame because it tainted my entire view of Santa Barbara. I'm sure it's a lovely city but from now on, when I hear "Santa Barbara," I'll think "dirty hotel."
