Very good area 2 miles from the center in front of a mall with Macys and other stores. 10 minutes drive down to the Pier and all restaurants on State st. The Hotel have spacious rooms, very clean and the staff is quite friendly and helpful.

My daughter and I took a mother/daughter road trip to Santa Barbara this past weekend. We stayed at the Best Western Pepper Tree Inn, and, as in the past, were very happy with our stay. When we checked in, way too early, we asked about the location of the room. We were told it was on the 1st floor, without... More

This is a really comfortable, friendly, quiet, well-amenitied hotel on the western outskirts of Santa Barbara. The staff could not have been more helpful and even laid on a courtesy coach to take me to and from the train station when required, as well as to my shuttle bus on the day of departure. The room itself was spacious, with... More

I was able to get a room with a reasonable rate, in Santa Barbara, one week before leaving. The bed was extremely comfortable and we were able to walk around safely and to Starbucks. Check in was quick.

Hard to get value in Santa Barbara especially at weekend so this place is a find and free parking is a definite bonus in SoCal. That said, don't expect luxury at these rates . It's clean, comfortable but there are no frills and it is quite a way from the real action by the wharf. We stayed just 1 night... More

Stopped here for the night on our way to Carlsbad. Check-in was quick and easy, great staff. Room was large and nicely decorated with it's own patio. We would definitely stay here again! Close to the freeway without being so close that you can heart it.
