“A Good Value with Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

Having just completed a 4 day visit I can enthusiastically recommend it. From the courteous help of the front desk staff (Minor was outstanding), to the clean, comfortable rooms and beds, we were very pleased. The breakfast was good enough. The bathroom does have adequate ventilation, the maid service was good, and I felt like I was staying at a Wyndham-quality property, yet the rate per night was reasonable, perhaps the best in Santa Barbara! The property is in the process of being renovated, but management is aiming for a higher standard than any Ramada property I've ever stayed in. Again, kudos to Minor who accommodated our room requests and the helpful attitude of both management and staff. You've won our loyalty!

Room Tip: Ask for a quieter part of the hotel if you're not a sound sleeper. It made a difference for us.

Dear CourtneyOregon,

We appreciate your review and are excited to read that you enthusiastically recommend the Ramada Santa Barbara to anyone traveling to beautiful Santa Barbara.

What we enjoyed:
That breakfast included protein - big deal for us.
Pleasant seating options for breakfast.

Couple of annoyances:
Having to log on to WiFi every day.
Powdered creamer curdled black tea - unusual.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the garden are quiet with a restful view of the lagoon. We were upstairs so c...
