We live in LA, and often drive to Santa Barbara for the day, but decided last minute to stay overnight. As most of you know, the hotels in SB are extremely expensive and overpriced for what they are. We came across the Best Western Peppertree on Hotels Tonight and decided that we'd give it a chance. I'm happy we did... More

This was a fantastic stay in a fantastic place, the hotel itself is a drive away from the beach front but it's worth the price you'll save on rooms, the staff were all very helpful and accommodating, the room was new and clean and the pool the same.

We have stayed here for five years, and each and every time has been great. I love the restaurant next to the hotel, great food and not expensive. They give you lots of good home cooked food. The location is perfect, great shopping nearby and lots of other conveniences nearby. I am so thrilled that I have this hotel to... More

When you check in you realize this is a somewhat dated property - Room doors all open to the outside and you walk up outside stairs if on the second floor. But any negative comparisons end there. Management has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. From little touches like a candy jar and fresh fruit and bottles of... More

if you like showering in the dark when the motion detector turns the lights off! This motel is for you! The room a/c will keep you awake with the sounds that it makes! Room view overlooking cemetery is breathtaking. Bull doze it over and try again with a better design! This motel needs to many improvements to list. It is... More

employee service was outstanding. great value for the money. Grounds and pool very clean and attractive. no breakfast is served due to company restaurant on location. Food was delicious and plentiful. Will return again as needed in the future.

This hotel is a little out of town but it didn't matter to us as we had a car and the nights when we went into town we got a taxi, which costs about $15. This hotel had free parking and free wifi which is vital when you have a 13 year old with you! You can also help yourself... More

This is not the highest quality hotel but is functional and has good connections to the road network. The restaurant on-site is good and there is a pool which our room overlooked. Staff were very helpful and the tea and coffee in reception is always on supply when passing!

Out of the centre of Santa Barbara but otherwise fine. Our only issue was, as a family of four (two teenagers) was that the beds were too small, and one adult ended up sleeping on the floor so that at least one adult got a good nights sleep. Other than this, the hotel and staff were great, and there is... More

We received one of the warmest welcomes from the manager of this hotel in the whole of our sixteen days holiday in California. He has the 'knack' of remembering everyone's surname and greets you every time you meet - it makes you feel like $1m. All of the places to eat were described in great detail and also the excellent...
