Everything about the Pacific Crest Hotel was great - easy booking, quick check-in, super friendly owner-operators, nice clean rooms, tasty home made continental breakfast, perfect location, and quick check-out. Absolutely no complaints, will stay here again next time we're in Santa Barbara.

Yes, there's more luxurious options in Santa Barbara if you're looking to do $400+ per night, but the PCH is a perfect blend of comfort, attention to detail, and value. It's in a great location near the beach, the owners are really nice and attentive, the rooms have all been upgraded recently, and overall, it's a tremendous place to stay...

Everything about this hotel is top cabin, from the warm welcome at reception to the spotlessly clean and well-appointed room, to the sparkling clean swimming pool, to a delicious breakfast array with a homemade frosted banana cake that was in the category of "I'll bet you can't eat just one slice" and walk away. Family owned and operated, the pride...

What a lovely hotel! It's close to the beach and includes free parking and a really tasty breakfast. I was pleasantly surprised by the decor in our room, it was adorable and so clean. Very close to the Funk Zone. The best part was the owner Greg and his spot-on recommendations. We never would have grabbed tacos down the road...

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.
