My husband and I were here on business and had to stay in Santa Barbara for about 2 weeks and didn't want to spend too much money. After staying in the Motel 6 next door for a couple of nights (that review is posted too) we decided that with no fridge or microwave it just wasn't going to work for... More

I live just south of Santa Barbara in Ventura County so I have stayed in many hotels in Santa Barbara from Bacara to the Four Seasons Biltmore and many hotels in between. We made a last minute decision to spend a night in Santa Barbara, so we weren't looking for a resort. This hotel is more like a motel. It's... More

I'm sure had we stayed at another room our review would be higher however our room had no ventilation...it was sooooo hot and the bed was horrible. The location is great and the room was clean. The service was fine.

We stayed overnite on a Saturday. Two other large families had rented on either side of our room. They allowed their small children to run up and down the walkways and frequently BELLERED ( and I mean bellered) at them for one reason or another. They had no idea or cared that there were other people in the Inn and... More

Well, this is an interesting review. We found ourselves looking too late or accommodation over the Memorial Day w/e, and mot of Santa Barbara was "No Vacancy". We came across the Pacific Crest and some of the reviews were dire. However, lets dispel a few of these anomalies. The place was lean, the room was satisfactorily spacious and the location... More

I have a disability (invisible) and have a service dog. Her access to all accomodations is protected by federal law, however, I usually chose motels designated pet friendly because they are used to dogs. For this weekend however, the Motel 6 at the beach in Santa Barabara had no vacancy, so I reserved a room at The Pacific Coast Inn... More

My son was graduating in April 2013. Santa Barbara is an awesome town and staying there is not cheap. Pacific Crest Inn was near the water and reasonable for pricing. We stayed in the room on the 2nd floor above the Managers office area. Nice View. There is also a pool.The room had a small kitchen. We are from Pennsylvania... More

I was very disappointed with this hotel, even after the mediocre reviews. I chose it because everything else in the area was sold out one month before our trip. From the room pictures, I thought it was a shined up budget hotel; I guess anything looks okay from a distance. I had to take pictures to show anyone interested in... More

bed was so hard. The tv in room is too small to be viewed from the bed. The heater made so much noise, we had to turn it off. Overall the location and price is a deal still and the staff was very pleasant.
