we had a pleasant stay, the hotel is beautiful and closed to everything (4 miles from UC Santa Barbara, 6 miles from Santa Barbara downtown. The room is rather dark, but very comfortable and clean. Great value for the price.

We loved this Best Western. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms clean and have everything you need. Pool is great as is the breakfast. Staff are friendly and helpful. It’s a great location - feels safe. We were very happy with our stay.

Its a confortable hotel, friendly staf, big rooms, a gym, a tasty breakfast, and wi-fi. It also has a pool. This hotel is located 8 km from Santa Barbara, if you have a car its worth the difference in price.
