If you want a reasonable price, great staff, great location and nice amenities I highly recommend the Pepper Tree. It has nice green areas with pools, fitness center and a terrific restaurant. It is located within walking distance of shopping and dining or drive and explore the wonderful surrounding sites and sounds.

Spent 2 nights here in late June on a road trip. Very much motel like but clean and comfortable despite its age. Small pool area too. The restaurant seemed busy but we didn't eat there. But the air conditioning was VERY loud! Lots of thoughtful touches in the room. Just over the road is a mall with Starbucks and a... More

Our third time of staying here. Reasonably priced, good rooms, excellent facilities and a nice restaurant/bar next door for breakfast or drinks. Out of town a bit but there's an excellent bus route down State St. There's a laundry here and a small gym.

Nice hotel, good organisation, we stayed for 4 nights and everything was OK. The location of the rooms was great, just arround the pool which gave it a nice view. you can go to the center of Santa Barbara with the bus. It's a 20 min. drive and the busstation is just accross the hotel. We certainly take this hotel... More

We only stayed for one night but could not find anything to fault in this really well run motel. Geno on reception when we checked in was friendly and helpful. Our ground floor room looked out onto the pool and attractive gardens. The room itself had everything we might need and the guest laundry room was really useful for a... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on our way to LA, after a busy few days in San Francisco and Monterey. We had a King Deluxe room, which was on the found floor and opened out onto the gardens and pool area, a few steps from the Hot Tub!! We were delighted, and the perfect place to recharge. The hotel seems... More

Very poor restaurant next to the Lobby, not part of BW. especially for breakfast. Very good Dinner restaurant Chucks Steakhouse of Hawaii, a couple of steps from the Lobby. A good location in Santa Barbara, close to the... More

We stayed there for two nights whilst visiting Santa Barbara. Check in staff were welcoming and polite, it was nice to have coffee and fruit and water available in the lobby. Rooms were nice and clean. Sat around the pool , they have two. Which was pleasant. Car parking was free. Short drive to the front but easy enough. Thoroughly... More

We stayed here for both business and pleasure for one night. The hotel is a bit dated, but the comfortability of the room and the service easily made up for that. My kids also loved the pool. About a 10-minute drive fro lower State Street and the beach. Recommend for a quick stay.
