We stayed in several hotels in California, many Best Westerns, and this was our favourite. Beautiful gardens, great breakfast and very comfortable beds. We would highly recommend this hotel. It is very close to Santa Barbara and all the restaurants are within walking distance.

We went there for a wedding. It was over New Year's, so it was a pretty busy place. Room was clean, nice amenities, great location right off the freeway! Close to a shopping center for a late night snack run. My only complaint is the bathroom did not have an exhaust fan, which can make things a bit uncomfortable, if... More

Comfortable stay with lots you can do. Almost everything is a short drive away, then within walking distance: movies, lots of restaurants & shopping (State Street) , the beach & pier. Great getaway from computer for kids and adults. Interesting walk around the city to see the architecture. Shipping in bright allies. Several sitting benches along the shopping route on... More

The location is so-so, on a busy street lined with strip malls, but it's only a 5 minute drive to a nice beach, and 10 minutes to downtown Santa Barbara. The staff is friendly. The rooms are quiet, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was a step above a typical continental breakfast (the frittatas were especially good!). Our only complaint: the... More

Great price at a lovely hotel and quiet location. Elks Lodge 613 right across the street. Jacuzzi and pool were wonderful and clean. Nice restaurants, Grocery stores and shopping just a short walk up the street. The beach, airport, and train station are 10 minutes away by car. We loved the lush manicured gardens.

We were very pleased with this hotel for price and for the location both for the local golf courses and for the freeway access to downtown Santa Barbara which suited us. The gardens are the nicest hotel we have seen in a long time.

They served a full breakfast which was included in the price. The coffee was not very good, but the breakfast had pretty much everything. The room was clean, the sheets soft. Once inside, we could...

Nice Location, excellent breakfest!! The room was very cozy and the bed was very comfortable. The pool and jacuzzi were very clean and inviting, although we did not use them. All in all a very nice location. Well worth the slightly elevated cost!
