We drove into Santa Barbara from Monterey on a beautiful trip down highway 1. We had a wonderful meal at the Boathouse at Henrys Beach. By the time we were done it was close to 10 pm and we would be leaving early the next morning so we booked an inexpensive hotel - Rose Garden Inn. Worst mistake I've made... More

A friend booked us into the Rose Garden Inn for an overnight stay to attend a concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The hotel was much more affordable than most other locations in SB for our visit (very early July). We werent' entirely certain what we'd end up with, but were both very pleasantly surprised by the facility. This is... More

I am at the hotel right now. It's 10:42. I'm in the bed...sliding around on a crazy slippery mattress pad. It is so slippery that the sheets won't stay on the bed--revealing a disgusting, stained mattress cover. I killed a bug in the bathroom. I rinsed someone else's hair down the drain in both the tub and sink when we... More

My family lives in Santa Barbara, so we visit often. We have stayed in this motel several times already. It has been updated recently. We like to take our dogs on vacation with us and this motel allows pets with an extra fee. You will not find a better price in Santa Barbara, and what you get is actually quite... More

This hotel is perfectly acceptable, it is on the main road through downtown although it is still a good drive from the centre, not really walk-able. The hotel is easy to find and there was plenty of parking. It was not cheap but seemed cheaper than most other accommodation in Santa Barbara.

Roomy, hardwood floors, location close to restaurants. It is a bit far from downtown, but it was an easy Lyft. Clean, easy parking. It was difficult checking out because we could not find the front office clerk anywhere, even when we rang the bell, but we ended up calling from the road and checking out, no big deal. Free HBO...

Booked this location as it was inexpensive for the area. Still kind of expensive for what you get. Not a great value. Had realistic expectations about what the property would be like given the ratings and description. Expectations were met. Upon arrival, the front desk agent did not greet me, which I found a little odd. He was in the... More

Motel style, clean room, comfy bed, all promised facilities present and working. The reception office folks were friendly and helpful - all in all, just what we wanted. Nearby were plenty of restaurants to choose from, walking distance if you didn't fancy any more driving. And not far from the waterfront by car. But the main road is outside, so... More
