My Husband & I recently stayed here for 1 night on our Pacific Coastal Highway trip.
The Hotel is ideally positioned for this route as it is minutes from the PCH 1.on the out of town end of State Street.
When we arrived all the staff were extremely friendly & helpful. & gave us some great tips on where to go,what to see etc in our very brief 1/2 day in Santa Barbra.Thus we made great use of our time.
It came over as a "Family" run hotel which is lovely.
The room was spacious ,clean & very comfortable. The buildings are dated on the outside but this only added to the overall charm. We would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I brought our daughter to tour/visit UC Santa Barbara. The location was great and the room was very comfortable and clean. The shopping in the area was good, too. We will stay there again.

There are many things to like here. Beautiful grounds, location convenient to freeway (though not walking distance to downtown Santa Barbara. In the room, there is everything from comfortable beds covered with tasteful spreads and cotton sheets, refrigerator/microwave/coffee maker, a TV AND DVD player, outlets everywhere... even fresh fruit and a bowl of candy. All this for under $200 a night.

Room Tip: We had a second story room in front. Balcony overlooking the pool. Thought it might be noisy but it...

My wife and I are on a tour of the American West, celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary, the hotel was ideal with lots of nice little touches in a good location just off Route 101, the receptionist who we checked in with was very welcoming and could not have been more helpful a first rate member of staff, who was a credit to the best western company. We would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel in the future, thank you for a wonderful stay

I don't normally expect much from a Best Western. But at over $200 a night, I expected a lot more than I got. The rooms are very old. Sliding door in shower got stuck and I was trapped in side for a bit until I was able to shake it loose. Sliding closet doors got stuck also. Everything in the room looks pretty old (except for the TV). For the price, I would recommend trying to find a B&B or paying a little more and staying somewhere a little nicer. The staff was great though. Very nice people! I will also say that there us bottled water and fresh fruit in the room, which was a nice touch.
