As someone who is noise sensitive, I enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Santa Barbara. Yes, the room is small, but it's cute. The hallways are a bit dim. The dim lights are above the doors to the rooms. I have seen even more dimmer lights though.
The bedroom was cute with a backlight headboard and two painted lightboxes on each side of the bed. There was a short wait at the front desk but the staff was helpful.
Also, great location on State Street.
