“Very pleasant hotel convenient for freeway, attractions and downtown Santa Barbara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We stayed here for two nights toward the end of a fantastic vacation in California. The hotel was easy to find and the room was very comfortable. Complimentary WiFi, a lovely pool and sauna area and friendly staff contributed to a very pleasant stay.

The hotel is close to the 101 and well situated for visiting the Santa Barbara mission, downtown and beaches. This was an oasis after a couple of unsatisfactory motel experiences! Complimentary breakfast was very welcome.

Location of our room was great, a nice view of the garden and the ducks in the lagoon. We enjoyed sitting on our little patio and eating breakfast. Room was fine and employees all friendly.

The Ramada Limited is a fantastic place to stay in the Santa Barbara area. Not only is the property beautiful, but it is conveniently located to all Santa Barbara, Goleta and Santa Ynez attractions. Easy to get to the beach, wine country, downtown, restaurants, etc. And the staff is amazing! They take care of all of your needs--always with a smile. I highly recommend staying at the Ramada anytime you come to visit the Santa Barbara area.

Green Features: They even have charging stations for electronic vehicles!
