The room was impeccable, very comfortable. would be great for longer stays. How ever The Santa Barbara area is way over priced this time of year and this property is no exception. The ground were amusingly landscaped and perfect. The breakfast was ok, good selection and good quality.

This is always our go to Best Western when staying in the Santa Barbara area. It is an absolute gem. The gardens and the pool are a super plus for relaxing and having a restful time. There is a very good breakfast with many different items.

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel in the past, and this time was no different from past stays. The grounds and the staff are excellent, but the rooms are old and the air conditioners are quite noisy. They run most of the time because there are no windows to open. We usually opened the door during the... More

Stayed here with 2 friends for 2 nights in Room 207. We very much enjoyed the small but clean pool, hot tub, and ping pong. It was great having access to a small fridge for leftovers and items from the farmers' market. Quick drive to Santa Barbara. The staff were courteous and responded quickly to requests (such as for more... More

Just checked out of 147. Didn't realize floors were wet, hopefully from recent shampooing, until after I was settled in and finally took off my shoes. Too tired to room change. Next morning clothes and cookies are all damp! Was wondering why I sweated and couldn't maintain room temperature. Someone would have to stay up and keep adjusting ac unit... More

Dear Guest, We value all of our guests, and apologize that you did not enjoy your time here with us. It was an unusually muggy weekend here and to be in a room where the carpet had not properly dried after cleaning had to be uncomfortable. This should not have happened. I know that the front desk apologized and gave... More

We stopped here on the first night of our US roadtrip so were exhausted after a very long flight from the UK and the drive out of LA. We were only here one night so did not get time to use the pool but it looked lovely as did the gardens. The breakfast was good, the staff friendly, the room... More

This three star review reflects that this is just exactly the place we needed to find without breaking the bank. Everything was very clean and well maintained (although like many BWs, a refurbished older property). Staff is courteous and even though the place was full due to much activity at UCSB, with a spirited pool party in the evening, our... More
