Best Western Plus Pepper Tree Inn

Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

We arrived as part of a large tour group and were met with champagne and freshly baked cookies. The rooms were clean with lovely extra touches including fresh fruit and sweets. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff including those at the great on site restaurant. This may not be the swankiest hotel in Santa Barbara but it would be tough to beat for warmth of welcome and quality of service.

Absolutely tops in accomocations, and willing to make adjustments for those with disability needs. Small group of 20 individuals, had only compliments for the friendly service, rooms were great, generally a quiet and beautiful area, flowers in full bloom and fragrance, catered dinners were delectable. In planning for this, the Marketing Director, Jessica, was of so much assistance, and followed through on every element of planning for the gathering.

Room Tip: Te area close to the 'Fire Pit' is a quiet and beautiful area, conducive to good conversati...

The plus:
-It's in Santa Barbara!
-Beautiful facilities, enjoyed our patio off the pool
-Staff were friendly and helpful.
-We enjoyed having the grocery across the street and fridge/microwave so we didn't always have to eat out.

The minus
-5 miles from the beach (you could get a lot closer)
-Kids ended up with a psuedomonas rash from the pool/hottub (which they very much enjoyed). It can happen at any pool, so I didn't take off any stars, but still, maybe could have used more chlorine.

Have not been back to the Pepper Tree in a couple decades. Went back for old-times sake and as pleasantly surprised. Courteous and helpful staff, Cindy in particular. The room was quiet, clean, and quite spacious. Very nice bath room and quality amenities. A little out of the city center, but an easy drive down State....and, did i say quiet? Slept wonderfully.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view...second floor for ultimate quiet.

The location of this hotels is great, the surrounding areas have lots of food and shopping and all within walking distance. One can have all kinds of food ..chinese, western, macdonalds, carl junior, pandera bread, etc and there is even a church opposite the hotel. Even.though to downtown is about 8 miles, it is a good location though. The pool and gym are nice but the sanua is small.

Room Tip: Great hotel.

Stayed here 2 nights travelling up the coast from LA to SF. Santa Barabara is a beautiful place to stop off and this hotel is away from the centre so it was quiet and peaceful. It also has a quaint restaurant which serve lovely homecooked meals. Centre of SB is just a short drive.
Main reception has a lovely roaring fire , coffee, ice water flavoured with citrus fruits and a small gift shop.
Some nice candies/sweets in the room as well.
Our room faced the front the rear balcony door faced the pool and the mountains lovely view.
highly recommended.
