HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Our road trip took two hours longer than expected, due to traffic, but the hotel staff was pleasant on check-in and we were also relieved to find a restaurant on site. Hadn't planned on it but very happy it was there. Overall look and feel was relaxing and helped us forget the road. It was also nice to see a...

Nice hotel, only stayed for one night. Not many options in the area, but I would stay again. The rooms were clean, nice size. I got a room away from the freeway, but there was a train early in the morning. There is a bar. Parking spots are small.

I was very disappointed with our stay. I have been staying here for years but we got stuck on the third floor facing the freeway for $200 a night. It was a shabby room, no hot water (we were told we were far from the water heater, no way to fix that by the maintenance guy), TV remote didn't work,...

Customer service was terrible can't even get coffee. Hotel was nice but don't expect and help or request from the front freak people. Say they will help but nobody shows up to. They also try to charge you extra or stuff you didn't do.

This was our 2nd stay here. Hotel is clean and comfortable. Looks like they're in process of updating the property which is needed. Didn't eat at the restaurant. Lovely courtyards and classic Santa Barbara architecture. Simple hotel, nothing fancy but again -it's clean and comfortable and reasonably priced close to the beach.

Arrived at 11am, there were no rooms but they got me at noon which was very cool of them to do. The room was on the second floor courtyard. This room has a shared balcony with the adjoining room. The first time I went out on the balcony the neighbor's door was open and I saw more than I should...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel regarding your recent stay at our property. On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for the experience you had with your balcony. Our french doors to the balcony do lock from the outside, for security purposes. This is not a typical experience for our guests. Your...

Check out the Best Western Plus in Carpenteria. And so close to Santa Barbara. Beautiful courtyard and lovely rooms. Ask for one looking over the courtyard. Nice conveniences including coffee in room and in lobby.

BW employees were helpful and accommodating. The exterior of the place was clean and appealing. The lobby was very contemporary with a modern twist. The bed was average. The cleanliness of the room was to my satisfaction.

Clean hotel, good service, decent room rate, close to everything (the beach, food, grocery store, coffee shops, etc). Our Family (kids and wife) had a good experience. The only complaint was how small (3 person max) the spa was. Other than that, everything was great.
