We made a 5:30 am reservation having had an unbearable night at Pismo Beach Hotel and we were thrilled to find a magically landscaped and super accommodating staff. This hotel is slightly off the beaten path which made it even more wonderful. The Gardens are so beautifully maintained and the bushes are perfectly and tastefully carved into imaginary animals that... More

This hotel was very clean, well manicured landscape front and back. Room was very nice and the bed was excellent. Breakfast was good and very clean environment to sit and eat both inside or out on the patio. Staff were all nice and professional. We will be returning here again on our next stay in the area.

Check-in was a breeze, and once again the Best Western South Coast Inn delivered up to us a spotlessly clean room with a whisper quiet AC/Heating unit that anchored one of the most efficient air exchange systems of all our hotel experiences. The flat panel was connected to the local HD cable system, and the room also had a two... More

Stopped here for a night en route to the Paso Robles area. We were not here long but very pleased with our experience. Because of traffic jams in LA, we got in really really late. We called ahead to make them aware of this, and they were super super polite. Likewise when we arrived in the wee hours the front... More

We wanted to explore Santa Barbara without paying Santa Barbara rates. This hotel is about fifteen minutes away, right off the highway, and really fit the bill. We asked for and received two quiet connecting rooms. The rooms were small but clean and adequate for our needs. The breakfast was delicious, with a nice assortment of options. Our favorite was...

This hotel is conveniently located near Santa Barbara, just a few minutes by freeway so you can get to everything you want to do. Very clean and quiet rooms. Good breakfast, and very nice landscaping and pool area.

This motel has some plusses: breakfast in the morning, a quiet area, clean room and immaculate grounds, and a shuttle that can zip you to the UCSB campus and back. We were only there for one night and stayed in an ADA compliant suite. It's what you'd expect from a Best Western. Average room, blah decor and some tired furnishings.... More

This hotel has a very nice middle courtyard and pool. The staff is outstanding, their willingness to shuttle us around has been great. It is convenient to UC Santa Barbara. There are also good restaurants within walking distance.

This hotel has an impressive gardens and landscaping. Clean rooms, but small size. Very loud AC and very close to the bed, so it׳s very cold at night and you can't open the window. Except that, everything was good. Very good breakfast with a variety of coffee and tea. Heated pool and nice lounge area outside. The front desk also... More

Very nice and modern accomodations. 150 television stations and a DVD player in the room was a nice change. Clean and comfortable room. I wasn't a fan of the continental breakfast and the price for one night's stay was almost double what I'd paid the night before nearer LA. I suppose the location dictates the price but it was more...
