Enjoyed our stay at The Best Western. We booked a courtyard room and paid extra for it but were disappointed that we didn't have either a balcony or patio as promised in the description. The room was nice, quiet interior room, king size bed. There is a small pool and very small hot tub but adequate for our needs, we... More

It's a good thing the great pictures of this property don't show the rooms, or at least not room 150! With a "view" of the underside of a stairway, you never know whether it is day or night outside. The room smells. My wife thought it might be bleach. Let's just say I hope that is all it was. They... More

Hotel and city are both quiet and relaxing. Easy to find and within walking distance to the beach and restaurants. We had planned to stay in Santa Barbara but found that area to be congested and less appealing.

I am a big fan of the Best Western chain, but this location was a bit of a disappointment. I didn't book this reservation, so I can only complain a little. First off, our room faced Hwy 101, and was incredibly loud. We opened the window for some fresh air, and it was impossible to hear anything on the TV.... More

We do appreciate your comments, thank you. Our Courtyard view rooms do look out on our tropical interior space and our facilities team does a wonderful job of keeping the grounds clean and well kept for our guests. Although not all of our Courtyard rooms include a balcony, many also have a patio or a view. Many of our guests... More

I was surprised to find only one bath towel provided for two people. I need to contact front desk to request additional towels. The so called high speed internet was slow. When trying to allow a software update the connection kept shutting off making the update imposable Also, unlike previous visits to this property no breakfast was provided

We went to the coast so my granddaughter could swim and spend time with me in a nice hotel. The website showed multiple images of pools, some with different backgrounds as well as a butterfly shaped jacuzzi. The ONE pool is a joke, maybe 16' square, about the size of a backyard above ground pool. The jacuzzi is smaller than... More

Pros:free parking/wifi, no resort fee, Sunset Grill happy hour pricing, short drive to beach, convenient to US101. Cons: uncomfortable beds & pillows (each queen bed gets 4 tiny pillows & they will NOT exchange them for 1 King pillow), sub-par housekeeping - no shower curtain upon check-in, stopped-up sink, low batteries in safe. These issues resulted in housekeeping coming to... More

The exterior of the hotel is beautiful. The room was great and bed was comfy. Staff were friendly. Interior courtyard is nice and a great gathering place for a few drinks. Restaurant on the 3rd floor is a great convenience. I'll do it again.

I have a hard time paying almost $300 for a room that is subpar in my opinion. The hotel is tired and run down. The staff upon check in informed me that even though I requested a roll away it wasn't guaranteed. Then when the room they wanted to give us couldn't accommodate a roll away we were relegated to...

We stayed here for Fourth of July weekend. The rates were pretty much double that weekend so we ended up paying a lot, but we honestly thought it was worth it. It's a very beautiful hotel.
