My husband and I did a long weekend in Santa Barbara and had a great stay at Pacific Crest. The location is awesome, a block from the beach and a few blocks from lots of great restaurants. The room was super spacious and clean, newly renovated, and the pool was perfect! The owners Greg and Jennifer were very warm and helpful, and they’ve done a great job at making things covid-friendly. Highly recommend staying here!

We have just come back from Santa Barbara and our stay at Pacific Crest — one of the most charming and unexpected finds we’ve had. The hotel is mid-century and the rooms are well-appointed, stylish and reasonably priced. The pool is perfect and the beach is steps away. Greg and Jennifer are delightful, friendly hosts and generous with their time and local SB knowledge. Doubt this will stay a secret for much longer. Highly recommend! We’ll be back!

This hotel is a clean, safe, and lovely place to stay during this summer of 2020! Our upstairs room was spacious, private, and super-clean. It is in a quiet neighborhood and very close to the beach. The pool area is beautiful with comfy furniture. This immaculate property was just what we needed after having been stuck at home for 4 months! Greg directed us to delicious and affordable restaurants for picking up food, and he brews great coffee in the morning. We can't wait to come back!

We have stayed here before, 2 years ago. It was a nice experience then. This time, due to COVID it was closed when I was looking to book a room for a visit to one of my favorite cities. Because of a weak competing hotel (Presidio) who bailed on my reservation on the evening of my 4 hour trip there, they had just opened that day and emailed me earlier to let me know They were open. I called and Greg and Jennifer bailed us out and were beyond nice, professional and made yet another great trip out of our hotel choice. While I'm sore at the cowardly cancelling last second hotel, I am not sorry I ended up in a much nicer, well maintained and super convenient location. Greg takes great care of the property. Everything is carefully kept up to date and it lacks nothing. While COVID took Jennifer's wonderful yummy morning treats off the agenda this time, when she can offer the breakfast treats again, that's worth it right there. I travel a lot and this one of very few places that bakes, cooks their own breakfast goodies. The Pool was nice, the beach is across the street, there is a nice path and sidewalk to walk, run, and State Street is walkable from the property. Another great time, thanks Greg and Jennifer. We will be back!
