Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled slightly off the beaten path, the Best Western Plus Carpinteria Inn receives accolades for its spotless premises and enchanting courtyard. Despite some concerns over room quality, such as stained furniture and noise, many guests find the accommodations to be tidy and comfortable. The staff's service has garnered mixed feedback, with instances of both commendable professionalism and discourtesy. While the hotel's tranquil location is a hit for its easy access to Santa Barbara, the absence of complimentary breakfast and some amenity shortcomings have sparked debate over its value proposition.

Stayed for a business trip in the area. The hotel is readily accessible from the main road. It is also close to the beach and a quaint downtown area. All staff were very attentive and cordial. The room was well-appointed. It was spotless clean. The direct access to the courtyard from the room was a most welcomed bonus. The fitness room was spacious with all the equipment in working order for a good session. A hidden gem in the Carpinteria area.

Our room was quiet and comfortable. The friendly front desk staff had a room available for us early and also kindly provided extra coffee pods. The property is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Carpinteria and nearby restaurants. On-site parking is available at no additional charge.

Check your bed sheets on check in, ours had not been changed. Air conditioner/heater very noisy. Bar/Restaurant used to be much better. After check in you'll probably have to clean your own room, terrible service!

Good location. Friendly staff. All the three room had problems, ranging from broken a/c, no shower, TV malfunctioning. I stayed in three rooms over three nights because of these problems. I had hoped some adjustment would have been made to my bill at checkout. It was not.

This is the nicest Best Western! The architecture of the building, along with the courtyard layout, make it an exceptional place to stay. Our room had a balcony looking out to the courtyard with a view of the mountains, and I enjoyed the view every morning with my coffee. The room was spacious, clean, and aesthetically pleasing. Also, it was very easy to navigate Carp and Santa Barbara/Goleta from the hotel's location.

I dont think I’d stay here again. The room service menu was super disappointing. I paid extra for a courtyard view, but couldn’t see the courtyard from my window.. just a potted plant. There was water damage on the ceiling.

Front desk staff were incredibly rude and playing games with us. Gave us a noisy room with paper thin walls and then after agreeing to move us to another room, revoked that offer after we brought all our bags down to the front desk a few minutes later. The Asst GM never responded to my 2 messages. We grabbed our bags and didn't even spend the night there. More than a complete waste of $212.

We were in the Santa Barbara area for 4 nights to attend a family wedding. We stayed at the Best Western Carpinteria Inn, and it was a very picturesque hotel with the Spanish architecture and lush greenery and flowers around the building. Our room was clean and very comfortable. For meals, if we weren't attending a dinner in Santa Barbara, we ate at the hotel's Sunset Grille and the food and service were excellent! We would definitely stay at the Carpinteria again in the future!
