I came with my husband to a weekens event. check in at 3 pm all was fine, room was clean, got to the room at 3 am after the event, But by 5 am people started slaming the other rooms door when they were leaving, common, we could not sleep at all. That is what I hated of my last weekend in Santa Barbara.

When you are paying less than $150 for a hotel in Santa Barbara, you can't ask for the Taj Mahal. This place was very clean. The rooms were small but our room actually had the second bed in a separate room which was very nice. The owners are quite elderly and were very nice and helpful to any of our needs. I would recommend travelers to stay here just to support the nice owners. The location is also a big plus. Within 5 minutes, you can walk to the boardwalk and all of the beach area of Santa Barbara.

Room Tip: The rooms with the second bedroom were very nice. The kids had their own room.

This was a rather quick trip to Santa Barbara mainly for the purpose of showing our sons the UCSB campus,so accommodation was not the #1 priority .I need to clarify here that the Days Inn on State st was going through a major much needed renovation.I am therefore not going to even attempt to list the problems the hotel has right now.However on a more positive note I should mention 2 things. Firstly the staff were very nice and are more aware than anyone that the work that is being done presently is a major inconvenience.Secondly,the hotel is in a great location and once the work is complete it could do very well and the rates will surely go up from the $125 a night that we paid for a large room with 2 king beds.The Days Inn ,formerly known as the Prada,is located right on State st which is to say the least a very happening place even on a Thursday night .State st has an array of shops and restaraunts of all shapes,sizes and prices for just about everyone.We happened to have dinner at "Macs British fish and chip shop.Although it was good it was not authentic(I am British) although in my 30 years of living here I have yet to find an authentic chippy in the US.But they did sell Boddingtons beer on draught which was great and more than made up for the fish and chips not being greasy enough . I would give this hotel another try although I would definitely wait a year to make sure the renovation is complete.

Room Tip: try for a room that is not next door to one being renovated.
