Have been coming from the Beverley Hilton, a four star hotel and paying a rate of $275 a night, we drove to Santa Barbara and figured we would stay in this “hotel” for one night and return to LA the next day. However we were quite disappointed with our experience; the rate of the hotel was a hefty $200 for our one night yet the value is worth less than half that. The interior and exterior of the “hotel” is subpar with exception to the ground level hallway near the dining room, which seemed fully renovated and more closely resembles the price we payed. Unfortunately, we stayed on the second floor which was downright mortifying. All I can say is that it once again resembled a motel rather than a hotel. The room itself wasn’t bad but was small and the bathroom seemed old and yet again, extremely small. On the contrary, the service was above average and the staff was accommodating and kind. The breakfast was also decent but lacked variety.
Sadly I would not stay at this hotel again nor recommend it to anyone given its price and value.

Location is superb, as we are right across the street from the Santa Barbara harbor, staying the night before 3 day dive trip.
Not sure what the other reviewers were talking about street noise, while it would have been nice to sleep with the slider open, I decided to close it & pull the curtains closed, nice & quiet.
The free continental breakfast was basic scrambled eggs, bacon & potatoes + fruit, rolls, coffee, juice & milk.
Would stay here again & recommend to others.

This is a great Best Western. The location is perfect- walking distance to the pier and town and right next to Tomo restaurant which was delicious. The rooms are modern, clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and welcoming. I loved the very large breakfast room with the expanded breakfast options. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again!

Pros: location. Walking distance to pier, restaurants, liquor store, etc. We also enjoyed the baseball game across the street at the park.
The room was recently updated and nice.
The breakfast was nice and they offered fresh baked cookies in the evening.
All of the staff was friendly and accommodating.
Cons: bathtub/shower not updated. Old tile and the curtain was challenging as the rod was installed incorrectly.
The balcony was tiny.
Our room was on the street side of the property and we had very loud vehicle noises all night. I had to ask for ear plugs.
