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....

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review our property. We appreciate the positive feedback and the lovely photo of the pool area.

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

Great getaway from computer for kids and adults. Interesting walk around the city to see the architecture. Shipping in bright allies. Several sitting benches along the shopping route on... More

The location is so-so, on a busy street lined with strip malls, but it's only a 5 minute drive to a nice beach, and 10 minutes to downtown Santa Barbara. The staff is friendly. The rooms are quiet, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was a step above a typical continental breakfast (the frittatas were especially good!). Our only complaint: the... More

Great price at a lovely hotel and quiet location. Elks Lodge 613 right across the street. Jacuzzi and pool were wonderful and clean. Nice restaurants, Grocery stores and shopping just a short walk up the street. The beach, airport, and train station are 10 minutes away by car. We loved the lush manicured gardens.

We were very pleased with this hotel for price and for the location both for the local golf courses and for the freeway access to downtown Santa Barbara which suited us. The gardens are the nicest hotel we have seen in a long time.
