Close to family. Easy drive to brother's home. I made the reservation in August & this was the only motel in Carpinteria that met my ADA needs. The roll-in shower with seat was excellent although the countertop in sink area was too small. The pocket door to bathroom is a great idea but it wouldn't close.

We have stayed at the Best Western in Carpinteria before, went there again and this time I think it was even better. It is better than it should be for the inexpensive price they charge, especially when you get a coupon/discount offer from online sites if you watch for them. It is sooo clean. That's the first thing you will...

Warm and friendly staff make staying here a joy every time - I stay here once a month, and the staff efficiency and warmth is unparalleled. Rooms are good - basic hotel rooms, but the wifi is always working, no matter how many devices I'm using at a time. Highly recommend.

We discovered a small town Carpinteria earlier this year thanks to LivingSocial.com and were impressed with a great beach (easy parking and plenty of facilities) and plenty of good food restaurants - Sly's is well known and on OpenTable, and next door is a warm and welcoming Giannfranco trattoria - a family owned restaurant with amazing menu and quality of...

Best Westerns are usually top notch; one of my favorite chains. This one was just OK compared to what i am used to. T'was medium priced with third party booking but a bit over-priced if direct for a next to freeway location. Was given an early room (ground floor-my request) and found the back location good for bicycle, easy unloading...
