Very comfortable hotel, beautiful grounds. Close to UCSB and the beaches. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was one of the best. The rooms were clean and comfortable and large. Great place to stay while visiting the university.

This hotel could use a bit of updating. We were just staying overnight on our way up north and got in very late. The connecting door to the room next door was not insulated...we could hear EVERYTHING. Breakfast the next day was good.

This is a very nice Best Western Hotel! The grounds are beautiful, unless you are in an outside room, facing west into a parking lot and bushes...and paying $388.00 for the night. You also don't want to arrive about 2:30pm on a Tuesday and be told "There is only one room available and it is a suite." We had just... More

This is the BEST Best Western Inn. There is nothing that I don't like about this lovely and comfortable hotel. The grounds are beautiful. Pool & jacuzzi clean. Stores and restaurants just a few minutes walk down the street. Oh and the free breakfast mmm.

We were very happy with the hotel. The grounds are gorgeous so it made sitting outside for breakfast really enjoyable. It was UCSB graduation weekend so the price of the hotel was pretty steep, but what are you going to do? Not see your kid graduate?!

At regular price, this hotel is fine. They do have the best complimentary breakfast around and a nice pool in the center of the building. Walking distance to grocery and restaurants, and a 7 min drive to the UCSB campus. Reminds me more of a motel, rooms are outdoor halls and no elevator. Rooms are basic but clean, remodeled with...

We called from the road, not having wi-fi to go on TripAdvisor or Booking to get a good deal, so we paid full rack rate for the king-sized room we got at the last minute here. The room was large, clean, and comfortable. The bathroom was very modern, which isn't necessarily a good thing. (I dislike this new fashion of... More

A little over priced the time of year I stayed but OK. There is not an elevator so plan on dragging your bags up stairs if you have a room on the top floor. Ask for a court yard room or you are going to get one that overlooks the parking lot, but it was a safe area.

The overall visit to Santa Barbara Went well ~ too much noise right by our rooms because of construction. One day they forgot to clean the room because we accidently left the PRIVACY magnet out. The hotel had very well manicured grounds and we really enjoyed the Jacuzzi. I have stayed here before and experienced a nice time as well.... More
