5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were here for two nights in July with friends. We had three rooms in total, one of the having a lovely pond view. The breakfast is ok, nothing special, but good. Rooms are nice and big. We even had a take away delivered one night and ate it on the veranda overlooking the pond. Nice pool. We have been... More

I come to Santa Barbara 3-4 times a year. The service at the Ramada was average; more business like than personable compare to my experiences with various stays from big chains to small boutiques. A simple room request was not honored without paying extra fee; different from my stays with similar ranking hotels. The room was on the small side... More

Our stay in the Ramada was for 2 nights and everything was aus expected and good. Nice and clean place, only the location is a bit outside of Santa Barbara. But we had a rental so this wasnt a problem for us.

A very good location next to highway, but quite, great breakfast, very nice lake with wild geese and ducks (and even a flying in crane) to sit and relax by the end of the day, a very reasonable price, and an attentive stuff.

We stayed at the Ramada Santa Barbara for 2 nights, when driving up the coastline. The hotel is clean, very service oriented and has great facilities such as a big continental breakfast, fast WIFI and a very nice and relaxing pool area. It is near the 101 and easy access to downtown (5-10 min by car). Only downside was the... More

Not very comfortable, hot tub area dirty and the keys are annoying, everyday I had to go to front desk to have them give me new keys,, they would let me into the property but not into my room....

Having stayed the previous night at a Ramada (in WA), I decided to stay at the one in SB. I was picked up at the airport by a Gold Cab taxi driver, not a shuttle bus as advertised in the website. No big deal--I got my transportation taken care of, free of charge. The staff were very courteous and friendly--always... More
