Decent experience. Hotel is being renovated and needs a lot of work. Breakfast area and select was really disappointing, especially for the cost

Nathan O,

We are sorry to read that you did not experience the same great value that all of our other guests receive when they stay with us? We hope that you took advantage of all of our discounts to local restaurants, attractions, and wine tasting. Hopefully you found value in our year-round solar heated pool and whirlpool? Our FREE Deluxe Continental Breakfast with all of our fresh pastries, coffee cakes, butter croissants, yogurts, hot and cold cereal, cinnamon rolls, hard boiled eggs, premium coffee, teas, juices, milks, and made to order waffles are a great way to jump start any day.

Our beautiful remodel of our front lobby is spectacular and now our guests will experience a whole new way of checking in and checking out of the Ramada. Plus the views from the lobby to our beautiful lush gardens and freshwater lagoons are now extremely clear from every view point.

Since you did choose to stay with us, you were able to save a lot of money since we are knows as the best value hotel in the Santa Barbara and Goleta area. Hopefully upon your next visit to Santa Barbara you will be able to find all of the value that our other guests enjoy.

We had a fantastic experience at this hotel, staff were very friendly and the room was very clean and smart looking. We were lucky enough to have a ground floor room with a patio door leading out to the garden where we found ducks and turtles. We would recommend this hotel for the value, friendliness and cleanliness ...

Dear Lindsey W,

Thank you so much for your perfect 5 Star Review, we just love to read the extremely positive reviews from our guests who seem to fall in love with our beautiful hotel. Our staff is indeed wonderful and they really enjoy giving VIP Service to our guests and also offering advice on where to go and what to do in the Santa Barbara/Goleta area.

Our Housekeepers work extremely hard making sure that every guest room is just perfect come check in time because we know that our guests are expecting perfection here at the 4 Time Ramada Worldwide Award Winning Ramada Santa Barbara.

Our Superior Rooms open up to our lush gardens and freshwater lagoons, as this is where our ducks, turtles, Koi, goldfish, and Sticks the Egret live.

As you mentioned value, we are known as the Best Value Hotel in the Santa Barbara/Goleta area because we can oftentimes save our guests hundreds of dollars by driving an extra 5 to 10 minutes away from the SB Beaches. Plus, we offer all of our discount cards to local restaurants, attractions, and Wine Tasting.

Please continue to share us with the entire traveling world, and please come back to Santa Barbara soon.
