The good stuff: the staff is friendly and accommodating. I love the complimentary fruits and water, plus they do have brand name toiletries which my wife liked. My patio had a view of the pool, close to a fire pit, which was cool. The hotel is centrally located, and close to many food options and of course the beach. The... More

We stayed here for one night, whilst on route to LA, and had a pleasant stay. Check was quick, the room clean (the bathroom was a little dated) and the bed comfortable. Our room had a patio with the fire pit right outside which was pleasant. The pool and grounds were well maintained. The hotel is about a 10 minute... More

On my first trip to Santa Barbara a few years ago, I went up without reservations, remembering that State St. seemed to have a never ending barage of hotel/motels up and down the street and I figured one was as good as the other. Whew, was i wrong!!! My wife and I stayed in this hotel and I wouldn't even... More

I really hate surveys, but to fill up the paragraph I will say that I enjoyed my stay and would stay again at this Best Western Hotel. Food in the coffee shop was expensive and fair quality and service. My bed was comfortable and pillows abundant.

I really loved this hotel and the convenience to the city and Douglas Family Preserve. The bed was super comfortable as well as comforter and pillows. I enjoyed the Bath and Body Works products for the vanity and the water softener was a pleasant surprise. I plan to stay here every time I am in Santa Barbara!!

We stayed here for 2 nights travelling on our way to San Francisco. Our was room was lovely, we had a balcony looking directly over the pool area. The staff were very pleasant & helpful. Great place for a 1 or 2 night stop over

Felt like a bit more 'traditional motel' - but still comfortable and good value. Pool area good , a nice bonus. Only stayed overnight in Santa Barbara and would recommend this for a short stay certainly. Breakfast in the adjacent diner (paid for) good quality & great value

This accommodation is very old and was nothing more than a motel - there is no nice reception area, it is situated miles away from all the main attractions and cost us 30dollars for a return taxi ride into town. The hotel restaurant was very basic and unappealing - we happened to stumble on a beautiful restaurant across the road... More

We stayed on a ground floor room, with french doors to the pool which was really lovely. The room decor is a little old school, but it was clean and comfortable with enough room. The guide that tells you about local amenities is really well done with lots of helpful info and restaurant guides. It's opposite a large shopping area... More

I stay at best western as often as I can, I like the whole experience there and have stayed with them for both business and pleasure. I may stay with them as thirty or more nights a year so they must be doing something right
