We stayed at the Ramada for a family wedding in late September 2012 and would highly recommend it for any stay in Santa Barbara. The rooms are clean and well-maintained, the king size beds are comfortable, there are in-room fridge, coffee maker and microwave. Each room has a patio with views of the mountains or of the gorgeous central garden with pond and lily pads. There is a free (and huge!) buffet breakfast each morning in a restaurant with flowers on the table! The coffee was some of the best we've ever tasted. There is also a nice pool and spa, though we didn't use them.
For travelers, it is 5 minutes to the airport, with a gas station next door for that last minute rental car fill-up. The beach and good restaurants are 5 minutes away, with hotel staff offering directions and restaurant coupons. We paid in advance, on line, and got our room for $143/night average for a stay of 3 nights. It was a superior experience all around, and we are pretty demanding and experienced travelers.
