A big test of customer service is when an extreme weather event (such as flooded roads and railways between LA and this hotel) prevents your group from ever even arriving. Nicole Weland, this hotel's AGM, was very supportive. She refunded in full our multi-room reservation deposit. We will definitely prioritize this hotel for next year's event...

Shower so much better than a tub, water temperature had to be adjusted back and forth a few times to get water adjusted but water pressure is excellent. Good breakfast, like the little omelette choices better...

Clean efficient Best Western. The rooms are fine. Updated. Typical crappy free breakfast. They closed at 9am and we slept in so we missed the do-it-yourself waffles. Instead had a tasteless bagel. This place is acceptable for a one night stop-over and the price is right.

This hotel has updated rooms that would rival any 3 -4 star hotel! The bed was comfy, the room was super clean, and the staff were friendly. If you are staying in the Santa Barbara area, pick this hotel which is close to UCSB, the Santa Barbara Airport, shopping and restaurants. There is a lovely courtyard with immaculate grounds filled...

10-15 min to Santa Barbara downtown by car. We stayed one Saturday night. Most of amenities are good for the price : clean and large room, quiet (parking side vs pool side with a road), heated swimming pool, breakfast included, large TV screen. Except the bedding (too hard), everything was ok.

This property deserves recognition at every level from landscaping to cleanliness to modern room amenities to free breakfast to staff. I was on a driving business trip that included 5 hotel nights and this was clearly the highlight.
