Pros:
Very friendly and helpful front desk staff.
Nice lobby area with gift shop, coffee station, business center and sitting area.
Hotel walking distance (3min) to a steakhouse (Chucks) and across the street to Lure Fish House.
Really nice courtyard with well maintained grounds, pool and jacuzzi.
The king deluxe is a nice sized room.
There is a nice patio or balcony area outside the room facing the garden area.
There is a nice restaurant / coffee shop that is great for breakfast (not included at this B/W) and lunch.

Cons:
The bathroom is pretty small for a room this size; the sink area is small and the shower / toilet room is quite small;
The room is nice and good size but a bit dated and could use some new sheets and towels.
The carpets were quite dirty and had stains that were large and icky, some right by the bed.
The parking in some areas are very small and thin, not really able to fit a standard car and certainly not a big SUV that a lot of families travel in.

I have stayed at the Peppertree Inn in Santa Barbara for over ten years whenever I visit my father. This hotel is a relaxing place with charming outside garden spaces, two inviting pools and Jacuzzis, and comfortable rooms. Each room has a mini fridge which is an added plus for storing leftovers. Cute (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤ patios overlook the grass lawns and pool areas. The room prices are pricey, but all of Santa Barbara is pricey. Close enough to downtown and beach that it is still convenient.

I stayed here for a Sunday night, having a business meeting the following Monday morning. Checked in at 5pm, Sun was out and many folks at the central garden pool enjoying the hot weather and sunshine. I had just made a 4+ hour drive from Santa Cruz, and all I wanted to do was to grab a dinner and then rest up for the next day.

Check in was smooth, no problems with the reservation I had made through.....Trip Advisor....my first time booking through TA. All went well. Drove around to my part of the hotel, walked up the flight of stairs, and my room was within 50 feet of the stairs. Nice. No long walks.

Room was good, older, kind of funky fun things like weird handles under the lampshades to click on the lamps. Pull the handle again, lamp goes out. It's a simple lever pulling a chain, which turns the lamp on and off. If you're looking for classic wall light switches, look under the lampshades and you'll find your way to some light.

Bed? It was soft. Not the highest quality linens, but good enough. Pillows, plenty of them. Nice bonus feature, a real balcony and room to sit down and look out over the pool area.
Bath was typical of this age of hotel, tub/shower combo with toilet snugged up nearby, door separating the bath/toilet room from the vanity and "changing room" with teeny closet to hang clothes. There would be my one major criticism, the tinest of closets, and with robes and other things hanging already - not a lot of room.

Internet was fast, not screaming but fast enough.

Fun note, you are across from a classic Mall with Macys as an anchor store. 1 block further to the southeast was one of the best WholeFoods I've been to.
In all, I'll return. And I'll have to, because I have new business in Goleta and this will be my new home base. Thanks Pepper Tree!

Great little hotel, lovely big room, terrace to sit out. Chucks just up the road to eat. Big supermarket and other places to eat across the road. Drive down to the front & have breakfast at Sambos, very popular & great choice. Staff very friendly. Would definitely visit again

Room tip: Second floor with terrace

What a fantastic motel in the heart of Santa Barbara, conveniently located across the street from Macy's. This motel has everything from complementary robes to bicycles for their guests, no free breakfast, but there is a very nice onsite restaurant. Rooms surround a luxurious swimming pool.

Room tip: Get a room by the pool.
