“Santa Barbara”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We always enjoy our stay at this Hotel. This our home away from home when we visit our Son's family in Santa Barbara. The grounds and pond with ducks adds a unique obiance. The complementary breakfast is just right. The rooms have recently been brought up to date. A large flat screen HDTV is great to have. They even have four charging stations for electric cars. I'm sure we will stay at the Ramada many time over next months and years.

Thank you so much for giving us a perfect 5 Star Review for Value, Location, Sleep Quality, Rooms, Cleanliness, and Service. We love knowing that the Ramada Santa Barbara is your home away from home and that you always choose to stay with us and will continue to in the future.

Please continue to share you wonderful experience with us to the traveling world and we will keep a look out for your next stay.

Thank you for mentioning our Three Electric Car Charging Stations, we were the very first hotel that had the foresight to make these available to our guests and they are extremely appreciated for every guest that has an electric car.

**POSTIVES** the best aspect of the hotel is it's right off the highway in Santa Barbara. **NEGATIVES** room rate high relative to the quality of the hotel: my room had a loud AC unit inside that was difficult to control & therefore I didn't sleep very well. Furnishings average. The bathroom also seemed only to have a heat lamp vs. a typical bathroom light. Finally, the hotel staff charged me a 2-night minimum (perhaps common on weekends) when I wanted only one night and didnt' offer any tokens of appreciation for checking out early.

Dear 231 Charlieb,

Thank you for mentioning our great central location, we are so close to everything here in Santa Barbara and Goleta. We and every other hotel in the Santa Barbara and Goleta has a two night minimum for a Saturday night stay unless we have business people who had to stay on a Friday and checked out on a Saturday thus providing us with rooms for a Saturday only stay. It is just the way Santa Barbara is since we are a destination get away. Every weekend but a few during the winter months are Sold Out and people have to book extremely early just to get a room.

As for the Ramada, we are known as the Best Value Hotel in the area and often times save our guests hundreds of dollars over the downtown and beach hotels. Plus we have the Ramada Santa Barbara Value Pass that can save our guests up to $650.00 by taking advantage of our partner’s discounts on Wine Tasting, Restaurants, Museums, the SB Zoo, SB Trolley, the Chumash Casino, Water Sports, Helicopter rides, and much more.

Please give us a call next time you are coming to beautiful Santa Barbara and we will see what we can do to make up for your having to check out early on the Saturday.

Our family was looking for an affordable place to stay in Santa Barbara and this was perfect. It was a quick drive to Santa Barbara, the kids liked the pool, and the grounds were pretty with duck ponds and lots of greenery. The price included free wifi, parking and breakfast.
