Good: I paid 100$ for one night plus taxes. Free cook-to-order breakfast. Good coffee. Two chocolates and water bottles in the room. Cute courtyard. Right off the 101 freeway = good stop if you are heading to Santa Barbara.
Not so good: rough on the edges, the blankets seem pretty old. The bathroom was small with old tile and sink but not in an antique way, just no character. The grout and shower pan looked a tad dingy. No front desk attendant late in the evening.
The stuff in the middle: we didn't plan to party but it was easy. We went to a couple of great pubs and my boyfriend had to drag me back. Problem with that is that this would be noisy for sleepy people.
