My wife and I along with our 18 month old daughter stayed here for an evening over Valentine's Day weekend. It was a very clean hotel and the room was very nice. The staff was very friendly and the complimentary breakfast was awesome! They even have an espresso machine which was a big hit. I do need to give a... More

We frequently visit this hotel when visiting our son at UCSB. The staff are very friendly and we always receive good service . The breakfast is ok, but there are lots of food options within walking distance of the hotel. The rooms are dated, but clean and the beds are comfortable. It is a good value for the area.

We tied up here on the first night of a week-long road trip winter vacation in California. We’d pre-booked via Hotwire but even so the cost was a surprisingly high $162.61 for the night. We thought that was a little steep. However, the property was a convenient distance for a first night stop from our starting point at LAX. The... More

This is a very nice hotel and decently priced for the area. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The grounds are nicely kept and the rooms are clean. The furnishings could use an update but the bed was comfortable. We didn't have a great breakfast experience, not enough seating, cold eggs...the food offerings are spread all around the perimeter...

Nice facility away from the hustle and bustle of Santa Barbara. Nice grounds and plenty of space. Nice rooms with a sitting area and really comfortable beds. This is much better than the hotels in the downtown area that don't really have much open space. It's really just a few minutes to get to the shops and attractions of Santa... More

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.

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.
