The location is very convenient. This is and old motel that has undergone some renovation. It was clean but would not stay here again. The parking is not the greatest because it is in a big empty lot that did not feel safe or secure at night.

Some of the best hotel staff I have ever had! Great location-across street from beach! Nice full breakfast, cookies and drinks available in afternoon. nice warm pool, wish there was a Jacuzzi. Walking distance to beach, boardwalk, wharf and restaurants.

Misty Palmer was the manager on duty. When I requested an extended check out she proceeded to explain the she already granted many guests and extended check out and then proceeded to tell me that she needed me out of the room as quickly as possible so she could have it cleaned. She was rude, caustic and unwavering. I have... More

The room was clean, bed comfortable and everything worked. The breakfast was not good, the bacon was under cooked and fatty, they probably should just offer cereals and toast as that part was fine. The reception staff recommended the restaurant next door for dinner and it was excellent. About 5 mins walk to the centre so a good location too.

A basic but clean motel. Lovely bathroom - think it had been refurbished. Fabulous location just 5 min walk from State Street. What more do you need in Santa Barbara? Didn't have breakfast but room looked clean and spacious. Impressed overall and would stay again if we get the chance to go back to Santa Barbara.

Good location but nothing like the photos! We had a one bedroom suite which had a separate living room including a pull out couch bed. But the combine space of two rooms was so small we bump into each other a lot. Bathroom and Shower is supper small as well, had to put our toiletry stuff on the floor. It... More

We paid a little extra for a harbour view - we could just see the harbour and it was definitely a better view than you would get from the back of the hotel. The room was spacious, the balcony was only about 18 inches so no room to sit out. Everything you would expect from a Best Western. The location... More

Love the location, the price and the clean nice large rooms. Right next door to the Harbor with excellent restaurant with great food and views Brophy Brothers, and close to the Pier with more restaurants and shops. Beach right across the street- albeit a busy one go up the road a bit to other beaches for more relaxing areas.Blocks from... More

If you go to Santa Barbara is not to hang out at the hotel all day, so this Bets Western is a good choice. Clean (although there was a nasty smell in the parking lot the last day, but it might've been temporary), good service and the included breakfast is solid. Across the street from the beach, walking distance from... More

Location is great… but the hotel noise is very disturbing. Could hear people talking on the hallway, walking steps on the above rooms … did not have a good night rest during the one night check in . The hotel staffs are polite and courteous . Breakfast server was somewhat in a rush in serving… I felt he wants to... More
