The grounds are pretty with the little duck pond. The room seemed very cozy. I was disappointed to find out that there were no elevators. I didn't like the fact that housekeeping didn't change the linens from the sofa pull out or the fact that I had to request clean towels for our 2nd night stay.

We stayed here with our 7mth old & 3yr old. Rooms were very dated but reasonably clean. Breakfast was included, and basic but certainly adequate. Beautiful gardens and good staff. No complaints, as its one of the best priced hotels in Santa Barbara.

Our stay at the Santa Barbara Ramada exceeded our expectations. For a very reasonable price we expected a nice room. What we got was much better. The room was very nice. Each room has a patio/sitting area outside the sliding glass door. Next to the pool is a pond with several ducks. And all of the staff were first rate.... More

This hotel is a great location for myself to stay. I stay when I have to be at work late or extra early. I live an hour away. I just wish I could get a bigger price break on being local or working local! Thank you will stay again ! p.s. the cookies are great! Tami

This property is well maintained, clean, comfortable and affordable. While it is an older facility, it has been maintained and we had all of the expected amenities. The front desk staff were helpful, the breakfast was generous and plentiful, and the ducks on the pond were an added delight.

Room was dark even with the lights on and the curtains open. Pillows were uncomfortable. People smoking all over the grounds and in the room underneath ours even though the property is listed as nonsmoking. Complimentary breakfast was all sweet carbs and shampoo, conditioners were dinky.

The Ramada is an adequate hotel for a short stay. The room was exceptionally clean and the bed was fairly comfortable. They have a decent continental breakfast with the usual fare - yogurt, hard boiled eggs, mixed fruit, waffles, cereals and other assorted carbs. The front desk staff are friendly and check-in and check-out were a breeze. On the downside,... More
