6.8 Okay
Pros:Location
Cons:Cleanliness. All bathroom soap was missing and multiple light bulbs were out in the room. Bed sheets were loose and by the morning I was sleeping on the mattress.

10.0 Wonderful
Pros:- Location was fantastic. "Downtown" Santa Barbara is pretty small and this was an easy walk or bike ride (free bikes!) to the main area - Once in the room, you would think it was a nice hotel. The rooms were big, bright, and clean. This is definitely a motel in name only. - Ice cold lemonade at the check-in desk was a nice touch
A
6.5 Okay

Cons:Overall look of the outside needs to be updated as the rooms seems to have been - Dated Didn't like the mattress - Lumpy Didn't like the iPod/Clock/Radio - Didn't work Didn't like the security of the room - Both knob and Deadbolt seemed to have been damaged by forced entry
