This hotel is right on the harbor and a block from the pier. The rooms are clean, spacious, and have a small balcony. The rooms open into a central courtyard where the pool is. The pool is warm and fun. There is not a hot tub. The staff is nice. The breakfast is very good. Parking is convenient. Only 1/3... More

Great location! We had a king room with harbor view. The room was spacious and squeaky clean. It also had a small balcony and convenient parking. The rate is very reasonable for the location and includes breakfast. Staff is very friendly. It's a little plain which is why I didn't rate it a 5. However, a good value for the... More

The grandkids and I went to Santa Barbara for a three day get-away - this was our second time in three months. We chose to stay at this Best Western this time - it was a good choice. The room was spacious, modern, and clean. Breakfast was included and was surprisingly good. We sprang for a room with a view... More

Great location, clean rooms, comfortable beds and plenty of parking! On our way from San Diego to Paso Robles for a weekend of wine tasting, we decided to stop over in Santa Barbara to make the late night drive easier. Not only was the Best Western easy to find (it's right on the beach) but parking was easy and someone... More

We were pleasantly surprised with the location, ambiance and standard of the accommodation. Easy directions from LA and plenty of parking. Friendly and welcoming staff, more than helpful. Wonderful for a few days relaxation overlooking beach and close to local amenities.

It was only a quick stop and the BW met our needs. The location is reasonable and in walking distance to some good dining options. The rooms are petit but well equipped. Bathrooms are clean and fresh, carpet and fittings less so. Breakfast is worth a miss.

We arrived around 9pm and were tired, the check-in process was easy and the staff were happy. That means to me that they like their job.The bed was comfortable and we got an Harbor View and a small balcony with 2 chairs and a table ....wonderful. The breakfast was good, not too imaginative, but good. We never met an employee... More

Short (too short) visit to Santa Barbara, was able to get a room with a view at this gem right by the harbor. Nothing to look at from the outside, but who cares...the view looking out is what matters! Reasonably priced for the area, staff could not have been more helpful and engaging. Jenn in particular was super-helpful! Breakfast plentiful... More
