We are back, having stayed here over two years ago. Back then we were told that renovations were beginning. When we check in yesterday we were informed that room renovations were in progress. Other than being disappointed that the rooms were not yet updated (which is badly needed) - this hotel is in a great location - the staff is...

Not sure what the going rate for hotels are in this area, but I can't believe I paid $260/night for this place. And since that is what I had to pay, that is what I am basing my rating on. I booked the week before and had to stay at this hotel in order to stay w/ the team. The...

Team manager did a good job booking this facility! The grounds were very nice, the price was fair for Santa Barbara in the summertime. Location was convenient to all the fields, and the complimentary breakfast was sufficient for hungry soccer players. I would not hesitate to return with a team or take my family for the weekend!

Serene, peaceful garden setting; very clean rooms and a pool. Parking can be an issue if you get in late. Breakfast has hot and cold options and both indoor and outdoor seating. Staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating.

We stayed jus one night on our road trip home, and the location was great for our need. The grounds were lovely and our toddler loved running through the grass and visiting the animal shaped trees. The breakfast was fantastic and staff were friendly and helpful. Our room however was a bit disappointing. The room looked lovely and It was...

Stayed at this hotel at the end of August - half business and half family trip (including 2 little children). 1. Very good location: Close to Santa Barbara airport, Goleta beach, and UCSB campus (all in less than 10 minutes of drive). Stores and restaurants are also very close (on "Calle Real" road).

Initially planned to stay at a hotel in the centre of Santa Barbara, but sadly found hotels that charged for parking and then wanted to apply an extra $150 room charge to cover potential damage caused, but then only return the money two weeks later by post?? Thankfully found the Best Western Plus just outside Santa Barbara with free parking...
