Real breakfast, nice staff, excellent service, pretty gardens. They are updating two rooms at a time starting in March, so should be even nicer, but there could be noise during the day. Ask for rooms on opposite side of construction.

I have stayed here for both business and pleasure. It has been the best place I have stayed in the area. I have stayed in a few of other spots which included two other Best Westerns in the area, this has been the best. They has a real breakfast not just toast and muffins. The rooms are large unlike other... More

We were very impressed with this hotel after a recommendation from friends. Although not huge the room was adequate, grounds were well maintained and although we never used it the swimming pool looked clean. Breakfast was included and there was much to choose from.

I would stay there again. The room was clean, nice and well ordered, The lighting was good. The heating/cooling register functioned well. The complimentary breakfast was more than adequate. I was unable to use the pool so cannot comment on that. The staff was friendly and very helpful when I asked for directions to the places I needed to be.

This property is close to UCSB and that makes it convenient for us to visit our daughter. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is complete with an espresso coffee machine. This is a reasonable stay for the Santa Barbara area. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Santa Barbara area.

Affordable, clean, friendly and comfortable place to stay outside Santa Barbara. We were visiting friends just a few minutes away so it made this location very convenient. The grounds have been greatly improved since my last stay here years ago. Rooms were clean and the breakfast was average but enough to eat. While there, we experienced a major storm overnight....

We really enjoyed our stay here. The bed was very comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and serene. Staff was very helpful and efficient. Will stay here again. The heated pool was fantastic, along with jaccuzzi.

The rooms are small, but cozy. It was quiet overall. The breakfast was nice. They had eggs and vanilla latte! There is no elevator. There is a Trader Joe's next door! There is a pool. Santa Barbara is 10 minutes away.

We stayed in several hotels in California, many Best Westerns, and this was our favourite. Beautiful gardens, great breakfast and very comfortable beds. We would highly recommend this hotel. It is very close to Santa Barbara and all the restaurants are within walking distance.

We went there for a wedding. It was over New Year's, so it was a pretty busy place. Room was clean, nice amenities, great location right off the freeway! Close to a shopping center for a late night snack run. My only complaint is the bathroom did not have an exhaust fan, which can make things a bit uncomfortable, if... More
