We stayed in the beds with double queen beds. Luckily, we got a room that was towards the back. I feel sorry for those that have to walk out the door and face Macy's from across the street. I recommend asking for a mountain view or a room by the pool and jacuzzi. For the price you pay, take advantage of them!

We got more goodies than other places like fresh fruit and robes. I've stayed in hotels/motels of all conditions so these little things make this hotel go higher on my list.

It's a few miles from the harbor/downtown area so having your own car would be wise. The staff was nice and gave us helpful information and even offered to call a taxi if we didn't want to drive.

It's right off the 101 and 154 which was great for us since we took a day to explore Solvang and Los Olivos.

Room Tip: If you want to use the pool, ask for a bottom room since there's a glass door that leads to the...

The Pepper Tree Inn was a great hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. They gave a map of Santa Barbara with hidden treasures and must see attractions. This helped us map out our stay and create a to do list while in Santa Barbara. The location was geat being located right across the street from a great mall. The room had great little extras in case you forgot something. It was aparrent that they thought of everything and have worked hard on ensuring all the little details were covered. The room itself had these retro glass windows that brought great memories of a long lost childhood. This dedication to classic elegance is what sets Santa Barbara aside from other destinations and is that gives guest of the Pepper Tree Inn the feeling of a true Santa Barbara stay.

Your stay will be highlighted by rooms from the 80's and decor from the 90's. Everyone who worked there was incredibly helpful and friendly. There is an on site dinner that also wants to be a sports bar. I think it missed the mark on both counts. You know you are in Santa Barbara when you are spending $200 a night for a $79 motel, and the Pepper Tree Inn is that motel. It is not that close to downtown or the water. It is across the street from a large shopping mall if that is why you are visiting Santa Barbara.

Well appointed rooms clean and very comfortable. The beds were comfy like other post express. Staff friendly and helpful. It was nice to have free botles of water and fresh friut. It is really not that far from the downtown which I liked. I would definately stay there again.

Upon arrival we were greeted by extremely helpful, efficient and knowlegeable reception staff who quickly informed us of all essentials for a flying visit to Santa Barbara.
Room exceptionally clean, comfortable, quiet and very well equiped with nice touches. Free coffee and fruit in reception.
Plenty of parking right next to our room. Lovely small swimming pool.
Hotel well positioned, short drive into Santa Barbara and walking distance to good restaurants and small shopping mall with Supermarket.
Totally recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Grond floor room gives direct access to small swimming pool.
