The grounds are very nice with interior ponds and pool area. The hotel itself is right out of the 1950. Its clean and a reasonable place to stay, and rooms are basic with no-frills amenities. Its not a bad place, just dated. The breakfast is mostly carbs and nothing special.

The Ramada Inn in Santa Bardara is not in Santa Barbara. It is in a suburb north of Santa Barbara called Goleta. The on line price last night was $195.00. At a AAA rate of $174.00 it is a lot to pay for an older property in need or remodel. The out of date furniture is is low end, and... More

wish I could give zero stars. I stayed here because work made the reservations. I would NEVER stay here by choice. To start with, the building is old, really old. It has character, but is kinda creepy. Popcorn ceilings, avacado green, timer light switch, sliding glass doors to the parking lot (1st floor) or vaulted wood slat ceilings (2nd floor).... More

**POSTIVES** the best aspect of the hotel is it's right off the highway in Santa Barbara. **NEGATIVES** room rate high relative to the quality of the hotel: my room had a loud AC unit inside that was difficult to control & therefore I didn't sleep very well. Furnishings average. The bathroom also seemed only to have a heat lamp vs.... More

Dear 231 Charlieb, Thank you for mentioning our great central location, we are so close to everything here in Santa Barbara and Goleta. We and every other hotel in the Santa Barbara and Goleta has a two night minimum for a Saturday night stay unless we have business people who had to stay on a Friday and checked out on... More
