This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It was so loud and you could hear everyone so easily. Also the guests were very loud and the staff did very little to try and quiet them down

This was one of the more affordable hotels in Santa Barbara, so if that's what you are looking for this will be an adequate stay. The room was clean but the bed was not very comfortable and pretty squeaky. There are a ton of stairs so if you have any issues with that I would suggest looking for a different hotel. Amenities are lacking. The pool was closed (Covid) and there is no gym. Just a few mins from the beach, however! So that's a plus.
