After changing rooms ( I was initially given a room at the back of the hotel where the parking lot was roped off due to construction - I would have had to park in the front and walk through the hotel to the back with luggage - as a single female traveler this was not safe or considerate). I was...

Shower so much better than a tub, water temperature had to be adjusted back and forth a few times to get water adjusted but water pressure is excellent. Good breakfast, like the little omelette choices better...

Room: quiet, spacious, comfortable. The bed was heavenly. Amenities: nice heated pool and whirlpool. Used these quite a bit even though it was rainy and wet. Workout room is beautifully clean and the equipment is well maintained. Breakfast: delicious, and coffee/tea/hot chocolate available any time of the day Service: excellent.

Great place to stay although expensive but all hotels in Santa Barbara are! In the perfect location, close to restaurants, fast food places, and many types of stores especially Trader Joes!! All within short walking distance. Comfy beds and nice clean rooms. I always stay here when in SB!

A big test of customer service is when an extreme weather event (such as flooded roads and railways between LA and this hotel) prevents your group from ever even arriving. Nicole Weland, this hotel's AGM, was very supportive. She refunded in full our multi-room reservation deposit. We will definitely prioritize this hotel for next year's event...

Clean efficient Best Western. The rooms are fine. Updated. Typical crappy free breakfast. They closed at 9am and we slept in so we missed the do-it-yourself waffles. Instead had a tasteless bagel. This place is acceptable for a one night stop-over and the price is right.

This hotel has updated rooms that would rival any 3 -4 star hotel! The bed was comfy, the room was super clean, and the staff were friendly. If you are staying in the Santa Barbara area, pick this hotel which is close to UCSB, the Santa Barbara Airport, shopping and restaurants. There is a lovely courtyard with immaculate grounds filled...
