We had a great overnight stay. We would return again if ever in Danta Barbara. Clean room, friendly staff. My husband never sleeps well the first night away so he didn't sleep well but I did. Only downfall was the walls were quite thin so we could hear our neighbor snoring next door.

I cannot say enough about how much we loved our short stay in Santa Barbara at the wonderful Pacific Crest! A gem of a boutique hotel situated right near the beach. Our courteous, kind, helpful hosts were terrifically hospitable. The breakfast was delicious, the surroundings were gorgeous, and the room was spacious and well-designed with great amenities. We stayed in...

Very welcoming and helpful staff, warm atmosphere! We would love to stay here another time. Close to the beach. Swimmingpool at the hotel a nice option of the ocean feels too cold. Quiet neighbourhood.

The Pacific Crest Hotel was the perfect place for our stay. Convenient location, yummy continental breakfast, clean and spacious rooms and wonderful owners. Greg and Jennifer were so accommodating and did not steer us wrong with great places to dine and have fun. We enjoyed it so much we asked to stay another night!

A classic 1960s-style motel redone beautifully! Rooms are generous and immaculate with new everything: bathroom, floors, floors, windows set up for maximum comfort. Pool heated to 85 degrees, very nice for our early spring visit. Owners very solicitous and helpful. Homemade breakfast with biscuits, clotted cream, frittata, and more.

We had a superior room, and it was very nice. It was on the ground floor near the swimming pool and I was worried that it might be a bit noisy in the evening, but it wasn’t. The bed and shower were excellent, parking was free. On TA people rave about the breakfast – we didn’t find it that special,...

So we stayed here for just one night. As you will see in other reviews, Greg and Jennifer were excellent! They texted us the morning of our check in with a nice message and some info. They also recommended some places we could stop along the way to the hotel. We stayed in contact with them as our trip progressed...

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We aren't for everyone, and don't try to be. We try to give Santa Barbara hospitality and make certain that our guests are comfortable and taken care of. The smoking part is not what we are about. We are a non-smoking property as is most of Santa Barbara. It is...
