This property was well kept and the personnel were very helpful. Even though it was more expensive for this level of hotel, it was reasonably priced for Santa Barbara. It's not in the center of town which was actually good because it was relatively quiet. It did have good access to everything we wanted to see in town. The room... More

We spent two very relaxing days at this hotel. Check-in was quick, While the rooms are somewhat small, they do have nice patios which add some additional space. There are louvered windows that allow the breeze to blow through the room and the A/C unit was enough to take care of the rare heat wave that occurred during our stay.... More

First of all, I would say Santa Barbara is probably the most beautiful American town I have been to, and I have been to many. No wonder John Cleese lives there. This was a very satisfactory hotel only a short driving distance from the centre. Lots of amenities and very friendly staff. Clean rooms and good wifi. If you visit... More

Fresh fruit is supplied and two bottles of water daily which is a nice touch. A decent coffee maker and the room is kept... More

The Pepper Tree Inn was a great place to stay for 4 nights before a wedding. We were right across the street from Macy's and could do our wedding gift shopping. Our room had a nice balcony overlooking a grassy area near the very pretty pool. The grounds were landscaped beautifully with many flowering plants and vines covered the balcony... More
