This hotel is always very courteous, clean and comfortable. Nice pool and Jacuzzi I prefer their fruit and coffee vs. a Continental Breakfast. Lots of diabetics out there would appreciate this. I find it a little pricey for my budget, but it is worth it for the great location and comfortable beds. CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN!

Grand big room, two Queen size beds, 'fridge, TV., coffee machine, some chairs, bathroom, bowl of fruit and bottles of water. We found we were too late for the... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel during out honeymoon trip and we loved it. We had a room with a balcony overlooking a little garden and the small outside pool and it was super. There was a small fitness centre which was great and also a laundry area, which pleased my husband immensely. Breakfast was not included so... More

We were in Santa Barbara for a family weekend. Our goal was to find a nice place to use as a base for our Urban Wine Trail experience. The Best Western was a great value. Everyone made us feel at home. The Fitness Center was a pleasant surprise!

We loved the hotel, but sadly most of the Best Western Plus Hotels we have stayed at provide at least a complementary breakfast. We did eat breakfast at the Marmalade Cafe across the street. The breakfast was awesome. I just wish they had put it on the website that breakfast was not included.

Similar to previous Best Western we visited, these are more like motels rather than hotels. Beds very comfortable, bathroom strange as no washbasin in bathroom, just shower in bath and toilet. Patio doors out onto pool area/patio area with a fire pit lit in the evenings. Air conditioning unit in room exceptionally loud, couldn't have this on at night. Fruit... More

Start with the negative, this was the only time in 10 days we encountered a solemn, unsmiling and unenthusiastic check-in staff. He gave the impression he didn't want to be there, and asking for the Wi-Fi code felt like an inconvenience!! Thank goodness for Jessica...she helped us with coffee and then told us where to visit, how to get downtown... More

Cookies ,fruit, bottled water and a newspaper supplied daily which was a nice touch. Also an on-site laundry which... More

Stayed here for one night in September with my boyfriend. I thought it was okay, quite pretty from the outside, is kinda like a hotel from a film with room doors that open to the outside. Bathrooms not amazing,very outdated and really needed patching up a bit. Room okay, smallish and like someone's bedroom, not really a hotel experience. Room... More
