4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Great location just off 101 with easy access to UCSB, the airport, restaurants and shops. The room was very clean, staff friendly and helpful. Grounds are nicely landscaped with a heated pool and hot tub. The continental breakfast was the best I have encountered. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: No freeway noise in rooms on the backside but the view is not as nice as the pool side.

Dear Trilady76,

Thank you for your review of our 3 Time Award Winning Hotel. We are blessed to have such a wonderful central location and to be so close to everything in the Santa Barbara and Goleta area.

Our wonderful cleaning staff does a magnificent job preparing all of our guest rooms for our guaranteed 3pm check-ins. Our lush gardens and tropical lagoons are home to our Ducks, Turtles, Koi, Goldfish, and Sticks the Egret. The Year-Round Solar Heated Pool and Whirlpool is always a bit hit with our guests as a place to rest, relax, and unwind.

Thank you for mentioning our Complementary Deluxe Continental Breakfast with all of the fresh pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, hot and cold cereals, and made to order waffles.

We appreciate you choosing to stay with us and look forward to your return in the future.

We were so glad to get off 101.. The hotel was super clean and the bed was like slipping in to a peace of heaven. The breakfast was awesome make your own waffles and an assortment of fruit bagels any thing you could want in a continental breakfast. although it was to chilly to swim the pool looked very refreshing.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Ramada in Santa Barbara. The staff was courteous, helpful, and was very efficient at the check in, no waiting. The rooms are very clean and the beds are wonderful, I got a very good nights rest. The continental breakfast was excellent and the waffles were cooked just right! The grounds are beautiful with the ponds and waterfall. This is diffidently my 'go to' hotel whenever I stay in Santa Barbara.

Room Tip: request a room that overlooks the gardens
