You can't go far wrong if you book a Best Western Plus, the Pepper Tree Inn was comfortable & clean but VERY noisy. We had a lower level room and could hear every foot step above, the walls are paper thin & the A.C. Unit sounds like you have a tractor in the room, it's ridiculously loud. The bathrooms are...

The Best Western Inn in Santa Barbara offers very cosy rooms, a nice quite area with a pool, free Wifi, coffee and tea, fresh water, newspaper and many more. The people are very kind and help with any issue. The hotel is located between Santa Barbara and Goleta. There are some places you can reach by foot - for example... More

We had a blast on our short stay at the Pepper Tree. Fabulous grounds with two pools and multiple spas. Just really pretty and very Californian in its feel, like a lovely motel from the 60's. Quiet room with a balcony. Nice staff. Fresh fruit in the room was a nice touch. Price for the location and amenities was excellent.... More

We stayed for 2 nights in June 2015 whilst on our honeymoon. We had an excellent time with no complaints whatsoever. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Everyone who dealt with us, from checking in to offering directions and advice on activities, was brilliant. Our room was clean and well equipped, the pool area was pleasant... More

I stayed here one night in early June on business. I arrived after 9pm, after a long day, and was looking forward to the hotel based on its favorable reviews. But to my disappointment, the hotel turned out to be average -- at best. I have to say that management tried to make it look nicer than it was by... More

Located 4.2 miles upland of the downtown beach & wharf, this lovely property is across the street from a small mall with several fast food, & a couple of more upscale dining choices. With two pools & hot tubs among lush gardens, an onsite restaurant & small lounge, well appointed rooms, & a staff which went out of their way... More

If you are on a budget and you still want to experience a bit of the American Riviera, I recommend this hotel. You can relax in one of the 2 jacuzzis or promenade across the way to Vons to pick up some picnic supplies. Bikes are available from the front desk if you would like to explore...cruise down State St...have... More

We only stayed at this hotel for one evening as a stop off for our trip to Los Angeles from San Francisco. The hotel staff were welcoming even though it was later in the evening. It was good to have free parking right outside the room and that we were on the top level. The room was clean and very... More
