We stayed one night in Santa Barbara and the hotel was ideal with a great downtown location. Service, rooms and roof top pool and bar were all excellent Yes, at night it was a little noisy with some motorbikes and car drivers enjoying the street. Service and quality inside the hotel could not be faulted
