We were so surprised and happy with this lodge. The rooms were big and very clean. There was parking on the premises. The people who worked there were friendly, curteous and helpful. The area is quiet and location is good. The restaurant has great service and good food. We will definately stay there again. They have bottled water in the room and a small fridge.

Myself and two teenage boys stayed here in July while in Santa Barbara for UCSB freshman orientation. I needed a large room or rooms and this place fit the bill for not much $$. We had a 2 bedroom apartment, 1 bath, with a large living room, flat screen TV, free internet and a kitchen. They provide two free water bottles, which is a nice touch. Pleasant staff with a cute little gift shop and a restaurant on-site.

Pros: Good value, nice staff. VERY QUIET!!!!!, 10 mins away from the "action" in Santa Barbara. Beds comfortable, pillows great. Very clean.
Cons: Dated, poorly decorated. Not near State Street, maybe 10 minutes away (this can be a pro or con).

If you are looking for value with units large enough for a family, this is it, but don't expect modern decor. I'd say this is right out of the 70's.

Stayed her recently, when mother-in-law was in the hospital. It is very convinenet if you have to go there. As others have said, it is a bit dated but our corner room was large, clean and had everything we needed. The staff is very helpful and while it is only a couple of streets over from the main drag, State Street, it is in a quite mixed use neighborhood.

My wife and I stayed here one night on our trip down the coast. Nice quiet place, several little buildings on the property, nice location in a residential neighborhood, a bit dated, but other than that, not bad.Not too far from downtown and the restaurants.

Room Tip: I always try to get a higher floor, less street and traffic noise.

My famiy spent June 15-17th at this great hotel! We stayed in the two bedroom family suites with full kitchen. It was my son's graduation from UCSB and I was able to accomodate my family in these comfortable, immaculately clean, large family room suites. The kitchen comes fully stocked and I served two large meals with ease! The beds were super soft and comfy and we all had great sleeping experiences! Every member of the staff were friendly and helpful. Santa Barbara downtown was close and the University was a 15 min drive, Easy!!!
I will stay there again and again. Thanks to Best Western for a fabulous family weekend!
