Stopped here for the night on our way to Carlsbad. Check-in was quick and easy, great staff. Room was large and nicely decorated with it's own patio. We would definitely stay here again! Close to the freeway without being so close that you can heart it.

My friend and I enjoyed our stay here at Pepper Tree Inn. Location is just few minutes drive to downtown State st area. The lobby area provided a variety of coffee and fruits and the staff were friendly. I liked that it had free Wi-fi too

A nice hotel in a great location close to shops, downtown and the freeway. hop on the freeway and go up to Los Olivios or to adjacent towns like Montecito or Summerland. The interior courtyard is very pleasant and a fun area for kids to run around and play! A nice family hotel. Needs some freshening up in rooms though.... More

The location of this Best Western is good. Near the highway, but quiet. Slightly away from the center of town and the beach--close enough to reach downtown, but away from the heaviest traffic. Clean and comfortable. Note that breakfast is not part of the deal. There is a restaurant which serves breakfast on the premises, and it has an exceptional... More

Generally a decent property with clean rooms, good beds, shower, all the basics. The one thing they need to tweak is the idea of management to leave a telephone message on the rooms phones that remind hotel guests to buy local wine tours and the like. The red message lights will flash continuously until you listen to the lengthy message... More

Our rooms were well appointed, well maintenained and very clean and smelt nice. We had a first floor room which over looked the gardens and pool and fire pit area, the gardens are lovely and relaxing... More

The room was very clean but on the small side, we were unable to bring our cases into the room as there wasn't enough space to put them or our clothes. We had a pleasant balcony with a lovely view. The downside of this motel is it is not near State street or the beaches and it doesn't provide breakfast.
