Stayed here a couple nights in June 2014 for a James Taylor concert. The property is conveniently located off Highway 101 on the north side of Santa Barbara. The property is older but clean. There is an IHOP restaurant near by. I will highlight the pros and cons of this Ramada. PROS: Rooms all have either a balcony or a... More

We were traveling throughout the California coast for 10 days & decide to stay here, while in Santa Barbara for 1 night (2 rooms). We were given two adjoining rooms on the 2nd floor as requested. The rooms were old and out-dated, but clean and adequate. We didn't get a chance to use the pool, as we opted for the... More

We had some trouble finding the hotel, but that was the drivers oversight. This property is well kept and we had a relaxing time. Especially the pool was our favorite place to spend time. Very clean and friendly staff as well. The room had a few nice touches and was plenty big. Even had a little balcony with some chairs... More

This property has easy access off 101 and is very centrally located to all of the attractions Santa Barbara has to offer. If you want something different from their breakfast bar, there is an IHOP across the street. The room wings are arranged around a beautiful central area with a lagoon etc. We couldn't have asked for better service and... More

Driving down the coast,had no reservation. Was very pleased with the value, and relaxing stay. The grounds of the hotel were beautiful. The breakfast which was included was a great start for our next day traveling down the coast.

Stayed 3 nights while my son attended a summer program at UCSB. Pros: Friendly staff, comfortable beds, beautiful lagoon, ample free parking. Cons: Breakfast is fair at best, screen was completely off upon our arrival and it took four calls before someone finally came to put it back on, the room surfaces were clean enough but a close look reveals...
