Okay. Have to tell the truth. I'm getting old. Graduated from UCSB quite a long time ago. Back then, this place was a flea bag hotel in a not very nice section of State Street. In fact, one of the black and white photos lining our room's corridor was taken a few years before I started at UCSB showed rooms at $4.00 a night.
But that was back then. Today, the relatively small hotel was absolutely lovely. The room was charming and comfortable. And maybe impossible for you to believe: our king room looked EXACTLY like the photo on the website. When does that ever happen?
So, why did we rate it at only four stars? The breakfast was LaQunita-ish and with less seating. But the location is now terrific with nice restaurants, shops, and both a British and Irish pub on the block. Comparing Hotel Santa Barbara to others of its category, we found it superlative.More
