We hadn't planned on stopping in Santa Barbara but we suddenly remembered we had left our passports and money in the safe of the last hotel!! Which happened to be 3 hours!! back. It was also a best western in Santa Monica. We were desperate so went to the beachside inn and told the young lady at reception,( her name is Heidy by the way, I wouldn't forget that as our daughter has the same name :-) )
She took charge of the situation and arranged for the best western in Santa Monica to send our belongings via ups to arrive the following morning. Sure enough at 9.30 our package arrived. Thank you Heidy for saving us a 6 hour drive and probably missing a night at our hotel in San Francisco but being charged for it I would think?
Even without all that help, I would still recommend anyone to stay there, It is clean, handy and the staff are great ! Thank you.
