Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed our room, which had a very reasonable rate compared to others in area with free parking. The staff were all very helpful. The only drawback was the noise from washing machine which made some periodic banging, but it at least wasnt while we were sleeping... overall enjoyable...

Loved this inn. Stayed here on recommendation of my best friend who lives in Santa Barbara. Beds extremely comfy, patio doors onto pool, on site launderette shops across street and bus service across road going right down to state street. I would definately stay here again.

I was pleasantly surprised by this excellent motel..quiet.. Excellent room, great staff and a nice porch overlooking a gorgeous lawn with a pool and spa in the courtyard.. I was born in Santa Barbara and have stayed at Many of the city's hotels over the years.. So a quick guide.. There is uptown or upper state street.. Where this property is across from La Cumbre Plaza.. And there is down town and then the beach..there are few places that are actually on the beach and they are down the coast. Like the San Ysidro..inn. Bring your checkbook.. My accommodations were spacious, with an excellent work area and a comfortable living room feel. Unlike many of the downtown hotels which are on the small side.. Close to superb dinning and shopping and easy access to all Santa Barbara has to offer..and it's near my favorite golf course the Undiscovered Santa Barbara municipal golf course.. Don't miss that..it will lull you to sleep on the first two holes and then challenge your best game..

Room Tip: Ground floor near the back..

Staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Although an older era hotel the décor was up to date and the grounds were well kept and the interior furnishings were modern and well built. I look forward to my next trip to Santa Barbara and the Pepper Tree Inn.

This was a pretty nice motel for a stop over. Convenient location and close enough to the high way if you're going to the pier. room was clean and neat and had everything we needed. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The Best Western Pepper Tree in Santa Barbara, CA is a venerable hotel that has been at the top of its game for years. The property is always fresh and clean, and the rooms are spacious and always in top shape. The location is close to shopping and the freeway, with many good restaurants nearby. The Pepper Tree is an excellent value.
