The room was clean and everything worked fine. The bed was comfortable. The front desk person was very courteous. But the room was cramped and the decor seemed rather dated. I appreciate they accommodated dogs but was surprised to find out they charged an additional $25 per night for my 4 legged traveling partner. Total bill of $250 (including taxes)...

My family lives in Santa Barbara, so we visit often. We have stayed in this motel several times already. It has been updated recently. We like to take our dogs on vacation with us and this motel allows pets with an extra fee. You will not find a better price in Santa Barbara, and what you get is actually quite...

The room was good, wifi worked fine, shower was great. Unfortunately, one of the beds was askew. We booķed via Booking for $146 but they initially charged $191. After I mentioned, they were very kind, apologized and corrected this. They said they changed the room number after booking, which re-introduced a standard price in their system. Curious if there are...

This hotel is run down, dated & noisy. While it's not the worst place you could stay , there are many hotels in this area with nicer accommodations. Keep shopping. This was cheaper than the others & in a pinch but not very comfortable.

Cheap price comes with cheap beds, non functional tv, poor customer service etc etc etc......Location is decent with many restaurants close by but thats about it. Rooms were smelly, beds were squeaky. You get what you pay for!!!!

We drove into Santa Barbara from Monterey on a beautiful trip down highway 1. We had a wonderful meal at the Boathouse at Henrys Beach. By the time we were done it was close to 10 pm and we would be leaving early the next morning so we booked an inexpensive hotel - Rose Garden Inn. Worst mistake I've made...

A friend booked us into the Rose Garden Inn for an overnight stay to attend a concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The hotel was much more affordable than most other locations in SB for our visit (very early July). We werent' entirely certain what we'd end up with, but were both very pleasantly surprised by the facility. This is...

I am at the hotel right now. It's 10:42. I'm in the bed...sliding around on a crazy slippery mattress pad. It is so slippery that the sheets won't stay on the bed--revealing a disgusting, stained mattress cover. I killed a bug in the bathroom. I rinsed someone else's hair down the drain in both the tub and sink when we...

This hotel is perfectly acceptable, it is on the main road through downtown although it is still a good drive from the centre, not really walk-able. The hotel is easy to find and there was plenty of parking. It was not cheap but seemed cheaper than most other accommodation in Santa Barbara.

Roomy, hardwood floors, location close to restaurants. It is a bit far from downtown, but it was an easy Lyft. Clean, easy parking. It was difficult checking out because we could not find the front office clerk anywhere, even when we rang the bell, but we ended up calling from the road and checking out, no big deal. Free HBO...
