I stayed 4 nights for a workshop in the area. The room had been nicely updated & was very comfortable. Housekeeping did a good job, the bedroom & bathroom was spotless. The property is very lush & properly maintained too. They have someone doing whimsical topiary sculpting on many of the mature shrubs. They recently added an elevator for the 2 story buildings. The rooms were virtually soundproof on the second floor.
Breakfast was better than most BW. Hot egg & breakfast meats, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal (hot & cold) juice etc. I will say I don't care for the coffee but that was minor. The room has a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee/tea maker and Trader Joe's is just down the street so it's easy to stock drinks & a few snacks.
The coastal Caltran track is close by so you do hear the noise a couple times a day but it doesn't run at night. Also be aware that the room rates are much more expensive in weekends. It's an easy drive to anywhere you need to go in Santa Barbara. I would stay here again! less
