I'm writing this review for my mom as this website doesn't work on her iPad. She is 81 years old and had a great time at this hotel and really enjoyed the owners, staff, and amenities. She would recommend this hotel to everyone. One aspect of this trip was that the owners helped arrange catering for an event that went...

A perfect spot in Santa Barbara. Great location, and walking distance to pier, Funk Zone and stretches of beach. Ocean view from balcony is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of vino. And pool to start your day or cool off mid-afternoon.

The rooms and furnishings are lovely. The hotel is quiet and convenient. The breakfast is delicious, homemade and creative. Small bites of many different things and fantastic coffee. Super close to beach. The owners and staff are all gracious and professional.

Pacific Crest is the perfect hotel for a Santa Barbara vacation. Jennifer and Greg have done an amazing job of making their guests feel at home and comfortable during their stay.

The Pacific Crest is a great spot for a get away in Santa Barbara. It's small and very well maintained by the on site owners, Jen and Greg. They are extremely friendly and helpful about local attractions and restaurants. The rooms have been recently redone and are very comfortable. Jen makes fabulous homemade goodies for breakfast every morning.

Location is terrific - just a block or so off the beach and there was a view of the ocean from our room. Room was clean, comfortable bed, with a/c. The staff is super friendly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable - they even texted me to confirm our arrival and what time our room...

We stayed at Pacific Crest for one night as part of our two week road-trip around the west coast and I really can't recommend it highly enough. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. The hotel is conveniently located for the Wharf, the urban wine trail and the Funk Zone - all easily walkable (or...

I stayed one night recently to attend a family member's memorial service. The owners were just fantastic - so warm and caring - and the rooms were immaculate and cozy. The breakfast was homemade and out of this world divine!!! The proximity to the beach is a huge plus too! I'd definitely choose to stay here again on any future...

Warm welcome at check in. Good recommendations for things to do and places to see. Just a short walk to the beach. Santa Barbara is a very nice place to visit and this hotel is a great base to make the most of it. Would definitely recommend.
