The Ramada at Santa Barbara is clean, quiet and very comfortable beds. The front desk staff remembered me from a previous visit and inquired if I was here to visit my son. I thought that was a really nice touch. The rooms are really nice and I love to feed the ducks. My only suggestion for the hotel is that...

Ramada Inn at Santa Barbara is an older motel with small rooms, but with most of the amenities one expects from a first class hotel. Price was excellent compared to most other motels/hotels in the area. Easy parking, easy access to the freeway and less than 10 minutes to the harbor as well as Goleta. Grocery and drugstore located two...

I stayed one night but I wish I could have stayed longer. The scenery is beautiful and the breakfast was delicious. It is a good way to start the day if you want something small. I did see the pool was heated for chilli morning and good to know. Also the landscaping was beautiful.

Not only did we not get any sleep our vehicle was hit in the parking lot and all we heard was people partying all night long. The room was outdated and filthy. The staff was helpful but their hands are tied with corporate rules and we only received a 50% discount. So what we got was a damaged vehicle and...

Nice little motel in a decent location, originally we had a ground floor room facing the mountains, but this was dark so we paid $20 and upgraded to the first floor with two queen beds facing the pool and pond. This room had a balcony and overlooked the pond, it was a nice place to sit. The hotel is pretty...

Another fine experience with Ramada Calle Real in Santa Barbara. Clean, well run and a fine breakfast of fruit and cereal. Easy on/ off the Freeway and a well priced, for Santa Barbara, gas station on the corner.
