great stay at this best western hotel. We were located right across from the beach, close to restaurants, shuttles and rental opportunities The continental breakfast was excellent as well as coffee offered all day and that included free water. The elevator was easily accessible

This hotel is one of the best in Santa Barbara. I have been using this site for years with regard to our Model United Nations Conference which is hosted at Santa Barbara City College...Also a lovely venue for an educational conference. The hotel is right alongside the beach and there are several restaurants on the wharf and shoreline for convenience....

Fantastic! I expected much less for the price. Everything was great. Clean, spacious, comfortable room with nice park view. Love the mountain view out the front door also. Breakfast was superb. Even really good, strong coffee and scrambled eggs that were hot. Location perfect. Across the street to beach. Parking safe and easy. Friendly staff. I will stay here again...

Staff were friendly, but the hotel wasn't equipped with basics like a kettle. The bed had a hair in and shower head doesn't move so you have to always wash your hair. The hand basin is also outside the shower which is convenient. Room also smelt like bleach.

Hi Joanna, Thanks for the staff kudos. I'm sorry you seemed a bit "underwhelmed" by the rest of our great little hotel. Come visit after our renovations and I'm sure we can "overwhelm" you next time. All the best! HJRobbins - GM

We stayed in this hotel for a night during our stay in Santa Barbara. The hotel was very nice for its class and price. The rooms were large and modern. The hotel was very central and within easy walking distance of the wharf and old town. We would definitely recommend this hotel!

Very helpful, friendly staff, offer good cookies thru most of day; had a comfortable room on first floor that we had requested. Served an excellent breakfast--about the best we have had in any motel. Staff gave us a map of city, directions to best beach, UC-Santa Barbara. We received a very good rate thru AAA.

At the beginning when we checked in the lady at the front desk mentioned that there was a $3 charge everyday for parking. Which is fine, but there was never any notice about that charge and when my husband mentioned that to her she simply stated "Well, that's a lot cheaper than next door, they charge $20 a day." Its...
