4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was a nice hotel, especially for a Best Western. The rooms could do with a bit of an upgrade, particularly the bathroom. But overall it was nice enough and the staff is very friendly. The biggest problem was the wireless internet. It was unbelievably bad. Like in the evenings when I'm sure most people were in their rooms and... More

We stopped here on our way from San Francisco to LA, for one night. The room were very comfortable and the staff were lovely. it is not a 5 star hotel and it is not designed to be. It has a lovely outdoor area, with a beautiful pond. I would recommend this place to anybody who is briefly stopping over... More

Stayed here for one night on business. Served its purpose as a place to stay but I did expect more. The room was ok. Bed was fine but the pillows were not. The bathroom was in need of a deep cleaning. Grout in shower was black in places, tiles were broken on floor. The restaurant bar had ok drinks but... More

From check-in to check-out, the staff goes out of their way to offer friendly service, answer questions, and help in any way possible. The rooms are comfortable, clean and up to date. There is a lovely sitting place with beautiful flowers and a fountain in the middle of the property with rooms overlooking. The restaurant is very good, especially breakfast.... More

Please note that we live in Carpinteria and sometime like to "get away" now and then.. Carpinteria has 2 "Hotels" The BW and the Holiday Inn. That being said , I believe that is why I found what I found. They just don't feel the need to fix things.. Room was nice for a BW. Bed was clean and comfortable.... More

We had not stayed at a Best Western Plus but we were pleasantly surprised at this lovely place. The hotel has a great location - close to the highway (which is not an issue in the room) and close to town. Lovely gardens and outside spaces. Pool is small, but clean as is the hot tub. Imagine they could be... More

The accommodation was very comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. A good selection of restaurants nearby. Good location after exploring resorts north of LA and before setting off on to route 1 proper.

freeway side is very noisy with big rigs rolling by all night long. 147 is a nightmare if anyone is over you on the second floor. Each step on the floor above is a booming thump. Maybe the laundry is over 147?

I stay here often when I visit my office in Santa Barbara. This is a very cute hotel, the courtyard is really gorgeous. The rooms are clean and adequate, and as updated and nice as you will find in the Santa Barbara market for $125 night or less. Staff is helpful and friendly. Carpinteria is a cute little town, and...
