Great place to stay. Easy on, easy off freeway access. Asked for special arrangements for the room and the staff was very accommodating. Very friendly staff. Clean rooms. Beds were very comfortable. Would definitely stay there again!!

A little up the road from the action of downtown Santa Barbara, but not too far of a drive. The hotel room was decent, clean, and comfortable. The 80's decor was nothing special, but an updated flat screen TV made that insignificant. The outdoor patio was a HUGE plus for us. I would recommend this hotel to families visiting the area. The heated pool is spectacular as is the Jacuzzi and the entire court yard grounds. Kids will have a great time here letting off steam, and parents can relax at the same time. The contentintal breakfast offered a great variety of hot and cold, this is where a family will really see the value. The room it was served in however needs major updating, a paint job and some decent cleaning top to bottom. The dead bug on the windowsill next to our table (as well as some cob webs on the blinds) were a real turn off. We did enjoy the food everyday though. Overall we felt very safe here and enjoyed the privacy of the place. It is easy to get to, and if you’re heading off to wine country, you are already away from the downtown traffic and congestion. All staff were very friendly and accommodating. VERY well priced for hotels in the area.

Room Tip: Didn't notice an elevator to the 2nd floor. Stay on ground level if you don't want to haul y...

The only critisim I have is that when I first arrived the young lady as the desk asked me if I needed anything, I was put off somewhat by this remark. It would have been much nicer and more professional has she said "May I help you" and greeted me with a smile. All other staff members I found were friendly and very helpful. Also my room was clean, and tthe staff addressed any other concerns or issue in a very timely manner. I would be very happy to go back again and recommend the Ramada to friends and family. Oh yes there continental breakfast was also very good.

Was pretty satisfied with overall stay except with the shower situation. I like taking warm showers but the water temperature would fluctuate from warm to super hot to where id get out or adjust the temp every couple minutes. Thats my only complaint but overall i loved my stay
