Reviewed July 4, 2015

This is a very nice Best Western Hotel! The grounds are beautiful, unless you are in an outside room, facing west into a parking lot and bushes...and paying $388.00 for the night. You also don't want to arrive about 2:30pm on a Tuesday and be told "There is only one room available and it is a suite." We had just...

This is the BEST Best Western Inn. There is nothing that I don't like about this lovely and comfortable hotel. The grounds are beautiful. Pool & jacuzzi clean. Stores and restaurants just a few minutes walk down the street. Oh and the free breakfast mmm.

We were very happy with the hotel. The grounds are gorgeous so it made sitting outside for breakfast really enjoyable. It was UCSB graduation weekend so the price of the hotel was pretty steep, but what are you going to do? Not see your kid graduate?!

At regular price, this hotel is fine. They do have the best complimentary breakfast around and a nice pool in the center of the building. Walking distance to grocery and restaurants, and a 7 min drive to the UCSB campus. Reminds me more of a motel, rooms are outdoor halls and no elevator. Rooms are basic but clean, remodeled with...

We called from the road, not having wi-fi to go on TripAdvisor or Booking to get a good deal, so we paid full rack rate for the king-sized room we got at the last minute here. The room was large, clean, and comfortable. The bathroom was very modern, which isn't necessarily a good thing. (I dislike this new fashion of...

A little over priced the time of year I stayed but OK. There is not an elevator so plan on dragging your bags up stairs if you have a room on the top floor. Ask for a court yard room or you are going to get one that overlooks the parking lot, but it was a safe area.

The overall visit to Santa Barbara Went well ~ too much noise right by our rooms because of construction. One day they forgot to clean the room because we accidently left the PRIVACY magnet out. The hotel had very well manicured grounds and we really enjoyed the Jacuzzi. I have stayed here before and experienced a nice time as well....

The pool, patios and gardens are quite nice, but the room, though clean, was dismal. I know they are renovating rooms; we obviously had a non-remodeled version and it was small, dark and dank. Window did not open and the only source of air was an air conditioning unit that loudly cycled on and off through the night. Price was...

Stayed here when we came to spend Memorial Day weekend with daughter who is a student at UCSB. Stayed here before. Nice breakfast included. We received a room which had recently been renovated. Very nice, although it was in the back of the property with not much of a view. A bit pricey as it was a 3 day weekend.
