Best Western Plus South Coast Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Santa Barbara hotels are not cheap, even in the winter. Stayed here one night in mid-January. I wish there was better lighting in the room, but other than that the room was okay - a typical Best Western Plus. The pool area was very nice, breakfast good and everything nice and clean.

There is good access to the freeway. The room was clean and comfortable. They forgot to give us a wake up call that we requested. Continental breakfast is typical but they should do away with the omelettes. My husband tried one and he said it was hard as a rock. It was hot but rock hard.

Stayed here recently on a business trip and found this place to be a great value and a very upscale motel. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and well-appointed. The mini-fridge was very helpful. They offered Pantene hair products which was nice. The outdoor area was great - even included a ping pong table. The location was very convenient and close to everything you might need.

Nice hotel and nice staff. Good value for your money in this high-priced area. Standard rooms with better amenities like refrigerator, breakfast and drive right up to your room. Beds were a little too firm, but the hotel is located right by my father's place, so you couldn't find a better location for me.

Enjoyable stay, love the gardening in and around the this Best Western. They do need to update the rooms and I believe they are working on some of them now. They have made the grounds more handicap accessible, just need to work on the restrooms in the rooms.

This is a very clean, comfortable, affordable motel in the Santa Barbara/Goleta area. Our room was a bit small, but clean and comfortable. The beds were great. The bathroom was fine. The TV/Cable/DVD setup was a little confusing, even with the printed directions.

The free breakfast was very good, although I wish they had served donuts. ;-)

The motel is very close to Highway 101, so there's a constant roar from the traffic. We had a room around the back, so there was a lot less noise.

The pool and spa are very nice, and the grounds of the motel are lovely.

The staff was great: very friendly and helpful.

Bottom line: we'll definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms around back are quieter.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to write us a nice review. We are happy that you enjoyed your visit, and are sorry for the lack of donuts! We provide danishes and muffins as many of our guests have asked for "healthier options," Generally we do not get complaints on the road noise since the hotel is all cement block construction, but on your next stay I would love to get you an interior room in the back as those are the quietest. We hope that you visit us again the next time you are in the area.

This is a wonderful hotel! Beautiful grounds, well kept lobby and dining area and very friendly helpful staff. Our room was very nice and extremely comfortable. My husband walks into a hotel room and the first thing he does is start in questioning the reason for decorations or design, room layout, like a frustrated architect. Not here, he loved the room just as it was! No re-dos at all. Convenient parking to our room also. The free wi-fi ... because of comments from other reviewers I expected it to be lacking but did not find that happening, I found it to be no different than I had used at any of the other hotels we had stayed at on this trip.

Very convenient to places for dinner

This hotel also goes in our travel book of great places to stay and eat. Great Place and a Great value!

Room Tip: Rooms on the garden side have a great view of the gardens.
