We stayed with our twins in the executive suite. It was very fairly priced, spacious and clean. It had a porch with chairs to their very well taken care of garden. In the garden there is a swimming pool and hot tub, both in good condition. Two cribs were promptly available, including fitted sheets and baby blankets. The bathroom was...

Our tour group spent two nights at the Pepper Tree Inn in Santa Barbara CA. The whole thing about this hotel is the management a staff try everything imaginable to allow you to have an outstanding visit. We were all impressed. The rooms are sort of small and the bathrooms were small, but the room amenities were over the top....

This Best Western Plus is fine and very reasonable cost-wise. And I always hesitate to impugn the reputation of any property based on a one-night stay. However, I did come across drug paraphernalia in one of the drawers in my room, which perhaps indicates that a little more attention to detail is needed. Otherwise, I have no complaints.

We arrived with our 6 months old twins, the room had plenty of space and they gave us two cribs with crib sheets ( the only good ones I've seen in a long time) the garden is great and the peaceful atmosphere makes it perfect for staying with babies. We could hear our neighbors footsteps (from the room above) I...

We stayed here several days last year and a week this year. We could not have landed in a nicer place. The gardens and pool area were lovely. During our visit in March, there were several people in the pool and the hot tub, and about 10 to 15 people were enjoying their private terraces on this lovely spring day....

My family and I stayed at the Pepper Tree Inn over the weekend, as my son had a basketball tournament at UCSB. The hotel is centrally located to the college and tourist destinations, and so convenient. Thank you for a pleasant stay!

This Inn is well located on Statae Styreet with a good bus service to the centre of Santa Barbara. A Wholefoods supermarket is 5 mins walk away and Macys is across the street in a retail complex that includes a number of well known shops. We had a very spacious bedroom with a balcont, which over looked the pool. The...

We only stayed one night at last minute. Staff very friendly, rooms very clean and lovely over looking the pool. Very nice to swim and relax in the grass. Shops across road, McDonalds & Chucks few minutes away. Drive to Santa Barbara in 10 mins. Restaurant shut at 8pm which was too early for us.

We chose this hotel for a birthday/anniversary celebration, and we're so glad we did. The staff was consistently conscientious and attentive to our needs. The room was spacious, clean and overlooked the beautiful green space and pool.
