Wish I could give this hotel less than one star. We came to S.B. for a wedding and the whole town was booked so we gave this place a try based on Yelp and Trip Advisor recommendations. 

Let's start with the locker room smell. Absolutely disgusting. And when we complained, their answer was to mask it with stinky perfumey carpet... More

Really lovely Spanish style hotel, a good swimming pool with lounge terrace around it! Located on fairly busy main road about 10 mins bus ride from centre of Santa Barbara. Convenient shopping centre just across the road, includes supermarket and a branch of Macey's. Our party was greeted with a champagne reception on arrival, much appreciated as we had been... More

It was a pleasure staying at the BW Pepper-tree Inn! The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful upon arrival, management was great, and even the housekeeping made an effort to say good morning to us. Our room was clean, and nicely furnished. The high-speed wi-fi worked great, and was free! We used the pool and spa which was... More

This place was a delight to stay at - many great features: Outstanding Wi-Fi connection and speed. Large HDTV and DirecTV. Refrigerator and microwave. Comfortable overstuffed chairs, one being a recliner. Outdoor patio area with chairs, secluded yet looking out on pool and landscaped lawn. Excellent bathroom facilities - vigorous flowing shower, nice fluffy towels and excellent brand of toiletries.... More

The hotel rooms are showing their age a bit, but the place is well-maintained and very clean. The complex is really beautiful with lovely landscaping and Spanish-style architecture. I can't say enough good things about the staff. They were so helpful and friendly, and they always made sure plenty of hot, strong coffee was available in the lobby each morning... More

We stayed at the Best Western for two nights whilst touring the California Coast. The Hotel itself is quite basic, but is very well maintained with lovely gardens and pool facilities. Our room was on the second floor overlooking one of the pools and had everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable. The only downside I would say... More

The hotel complex is well laid out, room was of a high standard with everything thought of and very spacious, only negative was the location stuck in a corner of the complex with the bedroom windows 3 feet from parked cars. The swimming pools were great after a long day sightseeing.

Spanish style hotel just out of the centre of Santa Barbara. Rooms were great and the complimentary water, fruit and biscuits in the rooms were a nice touch! Rooms were big and beds very comfortable. The staff on reception were so helpful they really made our stay! Free coffee and water in reception also came in handy! No real downside... More

Hotel was quaint. Centrally located to attractions. Pillow was too soft, bed was a little hard for our liking. Views consist of the courtyard/pool or parking lot. However, staff was friendly and price was reasonable for the area. The complimentary coffee was good.
