What? I've stayed here, and it's definitely not "one of the best hotels."

It's a big corporate short term rental type hotel about a 20 minute drive from South Beach. It's just ok. . . nothing to brag about.

No comparison to the Delano or the Setai. . .

Stop your crying. Who's forcing you to buy their tacos?

Taco Bell sounds more your speed anyways.

No, ask any commercial real estate agent. It's very hard for them to rent out commercial space (aka offices) in Goleta right now. Local business growth outside of hospitality is anemic.

But I'm not saying the bad local economy is the reason the Elephant Bar in Goleta isn't renewing its lease. . . the mediocre food and outdated interior is obviously the big turnoff to locals and tourists alike.

All you folks do is complain. You're basically professional complainers, but unfortunately, you don't get paid for all your "hard work."

I hope they sell icecream cones for less than the shop on Mission and De la Vina does. . . It's crazy expensive.

Why should tax payers or private developers subsidize less expensive housing locally when it's plentiful just down the road in Ventura and Oxnard?

Santa Barbara will never be LA.

Folks with lots of money aren't any less "real" than folks without money. I'm all for free capitalism. The problem is that these prices are simply not realistic. You can buy similarly sized condos with real amenities like swimming pools and gardens for half the price. Rich people aren't stupid. Unless the developer has super deep pockets, it's a foreclosure waiting to happen.

I've seen these units lingering on the market and can't believe the asking prices. They're outrageous.

Of course the most important question of all, how exactly a big-shot advertising executive happened to come across a science fair exhibit, isn't even mentioned in this article.

I smell a rat.

The wealthy of SB give millions to local nonprofits. They feed and house the homeless. They finance wonderful schools like SBCC. Without them we'd be Bakersfield or Oxnard.
