This is a great pet friendly inn. Close to the ocean and the Marina. Wonderful staff who is very helpful. Rooms are nice. Very accomodating for dogs. This inn has a wonderful breakfast. It is located next to a park (great for dog walking), near the pier and State Street. We just kept our car in the Car Port and... More

This Hotel was in a great spot. In lovely Santa Barbara. Room and Linens clean and upgraded, bathroom a bit cramped. Rooms a little noisey Bonus Breakfast included. Felt price was a little high. Staff very efficient and helpful, especially Nick at the front desk.

My husband grew up in Santa Barbara and has been gone nearly 40 yrs. He was surprised to see all the changes. This hotel had been there then, but not as a Best Western. It was so easy to walk around there. Across the street is the harbor where we ate and took a whale watching cruise. It was hot... More

We hadn't planned on stopping in Santa Barbara but we suddenly remembered we had left our passports and money in the safe of the last hotel!! Which happened to be 3 hours!! back. It was also a best western in Santa Monica. We were desperate so went to the beachside inn and told the young lady at reception,( her name... More

My friends and I stayed here for a girls weekend. I used to live in downtown SB, so I knew exactly what to expect from the area: right next to a park, across the street from the harbor and beach, a little less busy than right on State St. I was first to come around 12noon, and asked if it... More

Great location near marina and beaches. TripAdvisor #1 restaurant right next door. Although our room, 301 was very nice, large, with nice view of harbour, we asked for a quiet room. 301 is right across from the stairs and elevator. Hotel desk reception assured me it would be fine. Not even. It seemed like it was going to be OK... More

Although my husband and I have stayed at five star hotels, we were comfortable staying in, what people reported as a three star hotel. Actually after arriving here and walking around the harbor and State Street, we decided it deserved a four. Inexpensive, walking distance to the harbor and State Street, with a couple great restaurants nearby, especially Eladio's which... More

We stayed here based on tripadvisor reviews. We were passing thru SB and wanted a place near the water. The location was great and the front desk employees were wonderful. The room was clean but the beds were just so-so comfortable. The price was right and free breakfast is always appreciated. The worst part, which the employees can't control, is... More

Traveling with a dog is always a bit of a challenge, but she is well behaved, so we usually bring her on our driving trips. Santa Barbara is a delightful respite from our northwest winters, and in the past we head for this Best Western. Cannot beat the location, and the employees are pleasant to deal with. Here comes the... More

Nice hotel, excellent service, very well located (in front of the beach, not far away the main street), near an excellent restaurant! I will come back, for sure! Highly recommended. Just in front the beach. We enjoyed our stay.
