We paid a premium to stay here on weekend and a holiday weekend of course so was expecting the price to live up to the generally good reviews. We realize it is Best Western plus chain and not a boutique hotel but we still expected to get value for the price. On the POSITIVE side: friendly staff; coffee in Lobby...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 April 2017

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....

Everyone thinks they need to stay near the beach area/State Street, but depending on your reasons for staying, the Best Western Pepper Tree Inn, on the other end of State Street works just fine for less money. There is an upscale mall cross the street with a Whole Foods walking distance. And, of course a Starbucks nearby. Easy access to...

We booked this as an overnight stay while travelling along the West coast through California. The rooms are lovely with a view over well cared for gardens and lawns and a balcony with chairs. They are spacious and well stocked with toiletries etc but for that little extra, fresh fruit, bottled water and a few sweets. There was also a...

We only had 1night here but would happily have stayed longer. The room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and well-equipped, with a view over the lovely gardens and pool. The mall across the road had shops and restaurants, and the restaurant next to the hotel was good for breakfast. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly, and it was good to...

Staff very courteous, rooms very clean and spacious including bathroom, nice swimming pool area, and quiet even though it is on a main street, it is across the street from a mall, with a Vons Market, several restaurants and shopping. Parking is free at the hotel, no resort fees.

Dear Lee M, After reading your review, I do hope that you called the front desk for assistance regarding the hairdryer. I can imagine how frustrating that may have been to require a tool that you could not find. If you didn't come across the hairdryer, in some rooms it is located hanging in the closet in a designated bag...
