We had a last minute trip to Santa Barbara and we found this hotel on Booking.com and was reasonable price and very fast to get to. We enjoyed the quietness and cleaned atmosphere.

Exterior is maintained pretty well. But inside room is below 2-star class hotels category. I am surprised this is categorized as 3-star class when searched in google.
