I'm in the same boat, and it looks like the Ramada is full.

Any other 'preferred' hotels in the area?

Go the the Pepper Tree, that's a nice hotel and not too expensive, very close to the 'fest.

Why would anyone want to get one in overpriced SB? Go down to Thousand Oaks and book one at the Westlake Plaza.

Why would anyone want to drive an "overpriced" and reliable car? You answer that question and you've got the answer to the above. Seriously.

Since when are Hyatt's known to be a bargain?

You make it sound like Thousand Oaks is very close by. Besides, it wouldn't be overpriced if people didn't wait till the last minute.
