This hotel is great value. The bed was so comfy, it was advertised as a queen but was a king. The room itself was huge and the location is perfect, right off the beach. Also the water pressure in the shower is great!!

It is no longer a Best Western... and it shows! They have upgraded everything, including incredible service! Management is quick to contact you to make sure everything ahead of time is to your liking - Check-in was smooth, fast, and (gulp) they gave me an incredible upgrade to room 220 with a balcony overlooking the ocean. Wow! The room was upgraded with the latest in amenities. To those that have mentioned the bed is too soft... you're right. The bed is too soft. For me anyway, so if you like a hard bed, maybe they still have a few left. I like a firm mattress and didn't sleep very well my 2 nights there. YMMV. But the sheets were new and of fine quality. A/C worked perfectly. Fridge was perfect. Plenty of free parking. Inexpensive soda and snack machines. I didn't use the pool but it sure did look inviting. Do yourself a favor, go next toor too TOMA. The food is outstanding. For breakfast, its just a short walk to Chad's, but be prepared to spend your entire paycheck there. 35 bucks for two orders of bacon and eggs? Yikes! Due to Covid, the dining room was closed but they did have delicious coffee in the morning. No maid service (covid, again) but extra towels were just a "0" call away. Internet service is excellent and you can't beat the view in the morning. Fantastic job everyone. Look forward to coming back. Thank you for taking care of me and my lady!

Location facing the wharf is good but our room smelled like an old hotel room where people had smoked. This Best Western motel was recently remodeled and the remodeling is nice but the hotel itself feels old with tight and dingy corridors and the basic room with Queen bed is very small and dark. We traveled in high season so paid over $300 for our room and for that, would expect better accommodations. Check in/check out and parking were all easy.

Hello Katia, we are so sorry to hear your stay with us was not what you expected. We recently left Best Western to become independent and our guest's feedback is always appreciated and heard. We hope if you ever come back to Santa Barbara you will give us another chance to impress you!

This was the perfect spot for a quick stop in SB. Right across the street from harbor for biking/walking/swimming and access to public pool. Clean, easy and friendly. Easy parking, no hidden fees and free breakfast (although not during Covid)
