Nestled in a quiet Santa Barbara neighborhood near downtown, this hotel has exceeded my expectations. I like the exterior architecture, whiteboard high ceilings, clean decor and carpet, onsite restaurant, and aviary.

We rented a 2 bedroom with a kitchen for 1 night. It was actually a small apt and perfect for a mom traveling with 4 teenagers. We all had lots of privacy and space, there were 2 T.V.s large comfortable L-shaped couch and a reclining chair. The onsite restaurant offered great food choices and was reasonably priced.

I have a few favorite Best Westerns and this one tops the list. It is meticulously clean and very well maintained. Good little restaurant, easy parking and outdoor dining by the pool. Can't say enough about the staff - among the most courteous and supportive I have encountered.
