"Standard room facing parking lot"
Dated room. Clean comfortable bed. Since we faced street and freeway it was a little noisy. But not too bad. Nice hotel grounds. Staff checked us in early. Breakfast deluxe continental which was good. At a $134 a night in SB pretty good.

"My go to place for Santa Barbara..."
Been here on several occasions, and this Ramada have never failed me... Did booked last minute and had to get a' mountain view vs a garden view ' , but didn't matter as we were not arriving till late..10:30 pm. And had to be on UCSB campus by 9 a.m. ( 1 reason I picked this place, proximity to UCSB- and about 10 minutes away from Santa Barbara touristy section, via freeway or 25 minutes via street) Comfortable bed, had to share a king size bed, but husband and daughter all skinny. As usual the breakfast included was delicious, hard boiled eggs, variety of toast, danishes, cold cereals, fruit, yogurt and even hot waffles! Starts at 6 on weekdays and weekends at 7. Hotel showing some'age', but it is well kept, if you don't mind, some worn carpeting, chipped corners in places...I'll still kept coming back.o

"Generally unpleasant location, hotel condition."
That hotel is at a busy, noisy, not so pleasant location. The building condition is acceptable but rather depressed and in need of overall renovation. The Reception staff are very helpful but the breakfast staff make you feel they'd rather keep watching TV as opposed to seeing you. My wife wasn't too happy to see that place but we still stayed since it was only overnight to then hop in an early plane. Sound insulation is really cheap and we could hear both neighbors watching TV and laughing. The hotel had a good, free shuttle service with a private taxi. The high price we paid didn't justify the trouble at all; two third of that amount would have been more in line. So, go there only if you don't have any other options. I don't think they'll see us again.

"Easy freeway access for quick stay."
Conveniently located just off the freeway. My check in was complicated. They sent me twice to rooms which were in the process of getting spring cleaned and not ready for guests. However, they did their best to make it up to me and were very pleasant. The room adequately met my needs. I like that the room had a sink outside the bathroom proper and also a sink inside the bathroom though I didn't need it with this trip.

"Older property; noisy"
The room was clean, well-appointed for the price range, but the age of the property was problematic. Paper thin walls; neighbors' TV conflicted with ours, noise from parking lot at all hours of the night/early morning was intrusive. It's a good place to stay for a quick trip to SB, but not for a longer term stay. Staff was courteous and helpful, especially in the breakfast room.

"Very adequate hotel with beautiful courtyard"
This hotel is nothing fancy, but the rooms are nice and the pool/pond/courtyard area is lovely. The hotel is basically a motel close by the highway, but we had rooms that faced the courtyard and were generally very pleased with the facilities. Breakfast was included, which was nice, but the breakfast room was quite miserable so we ate outside by the pool in the sunshine. Value for money was very decent and I would give this hotel the rating 3.5 out of 5.

"Good hotel with great & private back courtyard"
Very nice courtyard with ponds and waterfalls. Very private with some rooms that might need some updating. Our heating unit and patio door were ancient. To be fair we did not check the heater till late as we dropped off all our stuff and did not unpack till we got back late in evening. It was an old style that ran all night with constant blowing with hard to adjust temp. Since we were only there for 2 nights we didn't bother to go through all the trouble to change room the next day. Make sure and ck your items asap before unpacking. Great courtyard and good breakfast room across from pool area. Didn't use any services from hotel so can't comment on that. Easy on/off of freeway also. Nothing by it but a filling station if you don't want to have crowds. Easy to get to sights from freeway though and still a quite area at hotel with freeway hiden & lower than hotel and only a few hundred feet from on/off.

Outside noise from cars parking, car alarms, train, doors slamming, water so loud in wall when people in other rooms are showering that I could no longet hear tv. It was very noisy, old, not updated.

"The worst hotel stay ever"
This was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The room was dirty. The service was below standard. The bathroom was built so badly that you couldn't even sit on the toilet without hitting your back on the prodruding counter. The "Deluxe Breakfast" was a short stop of dumpster diving. The pastry was cold, old, and the fruit was an apple (no selection), the coffee was so weak I could see the bottom of my full cup. I was disgusted, we actually took a shower at our daughters dorm at UCSB. I promise you we will never stay at this hotel again, nor will we endorse or recommend it to any UCSB parents.

Since this was a last minute reservation and one of only a couple of rooms available in Santa Barbara (holiday!), I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived to check in. It is conveniently located just off the freeway, the facilities are clean and updated and the room was well equipped. Most importantly, since I was traveling alone, I felt safe in the hotel and the neighborhood. I would definitely recommend it.

"Highly Recommend"
We arrived late and was booked in efficiently. Room was slightly dated but ok. We visited shops close by following check in and unfortunately were involved in a car accident where other driver was at fault - returned to hotel and staff were absolutely brilliant and very supportive. Made contact with Highway Patrol and next day Sara (reception) dialled car hire company for us and stayed around until replacement car organised. A very big thankyou to the whole team for their support. We stayed a total of 3 nights - room comfortable - view lovely. Grounds and pool are a credit to this hotel and some of the nicest we saw on our trip. Location of hotel is ok as only a 10-15 min drive to Santa Barbara Pier / shops. Would definately stay again..... thankyou.

"Nice, older hotel"
Very conveniently located to our event. Hotel is older and as such has particular issues. The biggest was the plumbing when showering. Water ran scalding hot, then ice cold during a brief shower. Pipes are super loud! Sliding window door came off its track when attempting to open and close it. If you are not capable of 'lifting' a large glass door to re-track its path, don't stay in an older facility needing this kind of maintenance. Otherwise, grounds were beautiful, breakfast was very good, and staff polite. Our stay was very quiet, too.
