Thanks to Nick and the staff at the front desk for the great service and thanks to Harvey for giving us great directions to reach our next destination, San Diego. If it hadn't been for him we would have surely have gotten lost.

I come to Santa Barbara for business a lot, but this was my first stay here. It is a great location - short walk to downtown and pier restaurants. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They have a hot breakfast, even though they aren't a "Plus" property.

Another excellent stay at this location this past week. Harvey and the staff provided unbelievable hospitality and ensured a wonderful stay! I never stay anywhere else while visiting Santa Barbara and will continue to only use this location in the future. Using this location numerous times in the past year, myself on business and with the family for leisure, I... More

Great location. Clean room. Fine breakfast and hospitality at the front desk. Decent price. But as I write, there is what sounds like a fraternity party (with ONE girl) loudly happening next door and we are trying to decide whether to call the front desk or the police. Last night it was another, um…LOUD couple. The hotel itself is a... More

I've been running the Select Staffing International Marathon every year and have stayed at this hotel the last 3 years. The location is perfect, next to the finish line, easy access to restaurants near the harbor, close to the beach, close to local markets and bars. They have a heated pool, which is great to soak in after a marathon.... More

Santa Barbara has only a couple of hotels that will accept dogs. We never travel without our dog. The Best Western has three hotels in the city only one accepts dogs. And it is the nicest of the Best Westerns in Santa Barbara. It is directly across from the beach and from a beautiful park. The rooms are nice already... More

We only spent one night at this location on our way to San Diego. It was clean, had a wonderful free breakfast in the morning and free water in cute little bottles at the desk at all times of day. This hotel is located right across the street from the beach. Some rooms have an ocean view...ours did not. Our... More

Our family enjoyed 2 nights & felt relaxed, welcome, and rested after the SB marathon. Great location-walk to beach, train station, piers & State St. Loved the quiet central courtyard & heated pool area. Very clean, friendly, service-oriented staff. Great breakfast variety & liked the personal touch of bottled waters & cookies! Will stay again!
