I left some clothes here. After I called and said that I would come back to get them they got "donated". Jake, the front desk manage,r told me that they were still looking for the clothes in the back, and I had to come ask him 1/2 hour later and really press him to admit that they lost/stole/discarded them. I...

Otherwise a nice hotel - friendly staff, clean room, nice pool and spa, ping-pong table, decent breakfast, good work-out room, near the beach and UCSB and good restaurants. Lilly's Mexican Food has the BEST tacos. We will stay here again.

Reviewed 27 July 2015

The hotel is in a nice location. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food I had was good. My only issue was the set up where the food is. Having the coffee next to where the hot food is slows things down because people get their coffee and add sugar and creamers and the people in line have to...

I would definitely recommend this hotel. The staff was great, room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was much better than I had expected and have experienced at other hotels. Parking was easy, always plenty of spaces, even late at night. The only negatives would be no elevator (carrying luggage upstairs was no fun) and not so great wifi. Both...

Have stayed at this hotel many times while visiting my UCSB student. Always good. The staff has always been very helpful. Nice pool and patio area. Easy to get around, as the hotel is close to the freeway, but not so close that you hear freeway noise. Not far from UCSB, State Street, etc.

Very comfortable hotel, beautiful grounds. Close to UCSB and the beaches. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was one of the best. The rooms were clean and comfortable and large. Great place to stay while visiting the university.

This hotel could use a bit of updating. We were just staying overnight on our way up north and got in very late. The connecting door to the room next door was not insulated...we could hear EVERYTHING. Breakfast the next day was good.

This is a very nice Best Western Hotel! The grounds are beautiful, unless you are in an outside room, facing west into a parking lot and bushes...and paying $388.00 for the night. You also don't want to arrive about 2:30pm on a Tuesday and be told "There is only one room available and it is a suite." We had just...

This is the BEST Best Western Inn. There is nothing that I don't like about this lovely and comfortable hotel. The grounds are beautiful. Pool & jacuzzi clean. Stores and restaurants just a few minutes walk down the street. Oh and the free breakfast mmm.
