A Santa Barbara Hotel with Pool

Retreat to a Garden Paradise

Nestled on five pristine acres of lush gardens, the Best Western Plus Pepper Tree Inn is a Spanish-inspired getaway among Santa Barbara, CA hotels. With enchanting features like ornate tile and two Spanish-style swimming pools, our downtown Santa Barbara hotel is a casual hideaway that pays careful attention to detail, not only in our decor, but most importantly in our service. We're also one of the finest hotels near the UCSB campus, which is just a 7-minute drive away.

Walk along garden pathways lined with palms and cascading bougainvillea and explore property features like two heated pools, two whirlpools, and an exercise room. When you're ready to unwind, you'll find that our hotel is one of the best places to get a massage on Santa Barbara's State Street. Explore our full list of amenities below and book your stay at our gem among Santa Barbara hotels.
