Our daughter attends UCSB and we have stayed a quit a few hotels in Santa Barbara.. The Ramada was by far one of the best so far.. And very close to UCSB Campus... The property was clean and the staff was very welcoming.. We will defiantly stay again..

While the hotel staff was very friendly, the hotel location was nowhere near most of the Santa Barbara attractions. On top of that, the hotel room had a funky smell and whenever someone in the room next to us would use the sink, toilet or shower it sounded like the pipes were bursting out of the walls and right above...

We have stayed at the Ramada Calle Real many a times and each time we have had a good experience. The hotel is close to the freeway and the location is great for parents visiting UCSB. It is driving distance from the downtown and the beach. The hotel has a quaint feel to it with the pond and the ducks.... More

The hotel was was cozy room was clean and outside was clean and presentable. The staff was very helpful and the people seemed as if they really cared about the hotel as if it was their own home. One tip don't park at the door park at the guest registration spaces.

I was very impressed with the hotel for the price! Very large rooms, clean, comfortable, and gorgeous grounds. The pool was very clean and had lots of seating. The duck pound was a huge hit with our kids! The building is a bit older (and there is no elevator, so second floor patrons be warned!), but the staff was super... More

Rodolpho and Kimberly were so gracious, informative, and friendly. All staff, although I may not have met them personally were helpful, from grounds personnel to housekeeping & breakfast personnel. I appreciated the lagoon & the bed was comfortable and the room immaculate. Staff service was refreshing and courteous. I will definitely recommend Ramada Calle Real to my friends and associates,...
