We recently booked a last-minute stay at the Rose Garden Inn after finding ourselves in Santa Barbara for a weekend getaway. We loved the town (specifically the downtown area). After looking on Expedia, we realized that most of the places with vacancy for the night were 200+ per night, and since we had our dog with us we needed something... More

I stayed here after being in LA craziness for three days and before heading to San Francisco for more craziness. I found the motel and city of Santa Barbara a quiet oasis among the chaos. The rate was one of the most reasonable in the area (although not inexpensive). My room was clean and quaint with beachy colors painted on... More

My husband and I stayed there one night and we would have been better off at a Motel 6. Upon arrival I found they had cancelled my reservation. The man at the desk explained that they had tried to call me to confirm and since I did not return the call they cancelled. Come to find out they had the... More

So , I'm a traveller and I have stayed in some awful places before and this wasn't one of them. By no means should you expect luxury, but its cheap and I survived the night. If that's all you want then you'll be ok. Everything is a bit backdated and there are pretty nasty carpets all over the place. It... More

Really really... More

The broken down ice machine was right next to the trash bin and who knows what lerks in there. There are no blankets on the bed only sheets. The lock... More
