“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

I really enjoyed my stay at the Ramada in Santa Barbara. The staff was courteous, helpful, and was very efficient at the check in, no waiting. The rooms are very clean and the beds are wonderful, I got a very good nights rest. The continental breakfast was excellent and the waffles were cooked just right! The grounds are beautiful with the ponds and waterfall. This is diffidently my 'go to' hotel whenever I stay in Santa Barbara.

Room Tip: request a room that overlooks the gardens

My family stayed in the Ramada Limited during a 3-night trip to Santa Barbara. It was important to me that the hotel I selected was family friendly. I was really impressed by how much this hotel fits this category. 1) The hotel is such a great value. It was also a bonus to that the continental breakfast was included with price and that saved money by having one less meal to pay for during our trip. 2) The rooms are spacious enough to put up our Play ‘n’ Pack with room to spare. The room came with a refrigerator (perfect for storing baby milk and snacks) and I loved the fact that there was an additional sink outside the bathroom that I could use for washing baby items (sippy cups, spoons, etc.). 3) The hotel atmosphere is great. My 19-month old daughter enjoyed to wake up to see the ducks by the pond. The hotel had small touches such as leaving a toy fish for our daughter in the room and providing food for guests to feed the ducks and turtles. 4) The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about areas of interest to visit in Santa Barbara. I was happy that they recommended we visit the courthouse which was not on our list of items to do. The view from the top was amazing. 4) The room was super clean and bed was comfortable. I also appreciated the wide selection of cable channels which included some kid stations. 5) It is conveniently located next to the highway, select restaurants and a supermarket.

I would highly recommend this hotel for any family and friends in the future.
