Best bet in Santa Barbara.
This hotel exceeded every expectation. Reasonable rates, superior rooms, clean, friendly, centrally located. The business or vacation traveler will appreciate the high-speed Internet hookups. This is our pick for Santa Barbara every visit from now on.
A friendly, family-run hotel. Not that stylish, but comfortable, with all kinds of special little touches, like cookies in the lobby. Nice pool (with good view of mountains), easy walk down State street to main shops. Perfect for a family or anyone wanting as central a location in SB as they can get.
