Excellent property and people! We will definitely stay here again, my only wish was that they had a complimentary breakfast, You will not be dissapointed if you choose to stay here. Especially if your room is not backed up to the freeway.

We got a lot more than we expected!! The building has a lot of character and the courtyard was beautiful. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Edwin at the front desk was so helpful, we got ther at 12 and wanted a room pretty close to the lobby as we had my 79 year old... More

If you like 20 year old carpets and shotty paint jobs and a television that shorts out every time the mini fridge turns on, this is your hotel. Also, found come creepy crawlers trying to get out of the bathtub. My advice, steer clear of this hotel. Location is not very good either, located in a neighborhood with no near... More

Given how expensive this place is, I would have expected more. It's all about the location, I guess. It was fine, breakfast was okay, the room was okay. Well, the second one was: the first room we were given was tiny, with absolutely no floor space. Luckily our friends had a huge room, so we knew they weren't all like... More

We wanted were looking to vacation in the Santa Barbara area and stayed in Carpinteria, a nice quaint town. We stayed for two nights, in early July. The pros: The Hotel right off the highway, just a couple of miles from the beach and the center of Town. The courtyard is very nice and has the feel of a bed... More

The overall stay was great with the only issue being a low battery on the remote. This is by far the best value when needing to stay near Santa Barbara. Having the restaurant is a big plus. It would be wonderful if you could add the TV guide like Redondo Beach has. G2 in the vending machines would be a... More

Nice place in and out, but my room was TINY! No place to put 2nd piece of luggage, or anything else. Crappy view of a rooftop. As usual, when you use points to pay for your room, you're given the worst room in the place. No daily newspaper.

I tend to be swayed by how I am treated upon arrival. Not good here. The check in agent didn't seem interested in helping me and couldn't find my reservation. Luckily after a few minutes the supervisor (Jake?) found My Booking and explained that corporate Best Western had cancelled my booking. Well that has never happened to me before and... More

Not happy with the service for the high price that hotels in Carpinteria get. I arrived to find that they were going to give away my reservation in 10 minutes. When we tried to enter the room the key cards did not work. We got new ones that barely worked, often taking several minutes to open the door. Staff seemed... More
