Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a last minute trip to Santa Barbara and we found this hotel on Booking.com and was reasonable price and very fast to get to. We enjoyed the quietness and cleaned atmosphere.

Inside room facilities are below average and it is not good for families. - very Old furnitures - very Old fridge, coz of noise it would interrupt your sleep in the night -...

Average hotel, nice front office staff but bathroom wasn't cleaned very well - or maybe just because it's old and needs major facelift.

In most respects, the Ramada Inn Santa Barbara is like many other very high-grade motels - spacious rooms, comfortable beds, swimmming pool, decent continental breakfast, the usual amenities. But how many motels have their own private lagoon? What a treat to sit on your own patio or balcony overlooking a beautiful parklike setting. This is a great place to relax....
