"Nice Quiet & Clean Hotel"
We were very pleased with our stay. We had a king suite that was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay again. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Only small issue was the refrigerator made a high pitch sound occasionally. Not enough to keep us awake.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good experience overall"
towel, bed was clean, but the bottle water looks bubbled and undrinkable. the room was tiny, location was ok, felt good, but not worth for the money i paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely hotel with nice breakfast place and great leisure area for down time. Only problem was trouble with communication between workers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple, classy and nice getaway!"
We checked in a little later and everything was ready to go! We had a nice king size room. First floor with a little seating area outside. It was quiet and very homey.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, nothing special"
I needed an overnite place and this fit the bill. I arrived late, got room in back, near road. Not as quiet as I would have liked. Fortunately road noise was masked the the heater unit. A classic hotel device, either too hot or too cold, but continuously making noise. Not much else to report everything was booked, so had to make do.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to all must-see sights"
We had a wonderful time! very relaxing, and so close to state street and the courthouse, which was perfect for us!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room was very nice for the price point."
The hotel is in a great location just a short few minutes to state street or the beach. Remember to request a non-smoking room when booking on Expedia. We did not and the room smelled like smoke. Overall a good place and I would return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It was a convenient locatiion for us"
As long as we were there,facility was fine for us. Room was clean, comfortable and convenient locale.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was perfect. The best part is how quiet the neighborhood is. We are definitely staying again on our next trip to Santa Barbara.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I want to oome back!"
Everything was perfect except I wish I had asked for a handicap access room for my husband who was ill. Also, and this is not just about this hotel, but when something in the room is not currently working (in this case, the air conditioner) I think slight discounts should be automatically offered. It is a disappointment to not have EVERYTHING working […] well, and creates a slight sense of anxiety and concern. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a hip replacement at nearby Cottage Hospital on Jan 3. We stayed at Encina Lodge Jan 2,3,and 4th. Actually I stayed in the hospital on Jan 3rd but my wife stayed at our room then we both stayed at the room on Saturday night. The staff was very accomodating and we were pleased with our room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Spread out property"
Overall hotel is warm and comfortable but the rooms are spread over many disconnected buildings, the main building has only queen rooms that are really small and room configuration odd. The king rooms are at the back in a separate building across what appears to be another property's parking lot (you get your own little permit to put on the dash), the […] back building has underground parking and does not have the charm of the main building which you see in the featured photo. Regardless, room was well appointed, bath linen and amenities were good quality but bed furnishings were so-so. Room had dvd player to go with the flat screen. Close to downtown but not walkable, its about a mile. Hotel is situated in a nice commercial-residential neighborhood off the north end of state street where it begins to lose its downtown charm. There is no breakfast included. There is a restaurant that serves good food but is a bit pricey as can be expected. Staff is excellent and charming. There is an aviary but it has only the common zebra finches, nothing fancy. Like the oddity of the property, the pool appeared triangular. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Cottage Hospital"
The rooms need some work as the wallpaper is peeling, the room needs painting and the decor needs updating, especially with the rate being charged and no AAA rate given. I was having an early surgery so the location was my concern. I usually stay at another Best Western in another part of Santa Barbara for cheaper, with more updated rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very impressed by the hotel!! Even my wife - who is hard to please - loved it!! Sure its not on the beach but its only 5 minutes or less from down town SB. It looked like it had been recently updated. 42 in plasma with separate dvd player. Even the front desk offered free dvds to borrow!!! We will b staying here next time we come back to SB!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Last minute choice that was a pleasent surprise."
The room was large with a full kichen room. It was clean and well maintain. It was on a very quite strem et. On site restaurant provided a great breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Quaint Neighborhood--Close to Shops/Restaurants"
Located in a quiet neighborhood a few blocks from the shops and restaurants. The hotel was super clean but decor sort of took me back to the 80's. Rooms have a small refrigerator and coffee pot....it would have been nice to have a microwave and real coffee creamers (they served the powder creamer and generic coffee). It was a little pricey for what […] you got but then it is Santa Barbara. The linens on the bed were really nice and had a very comfortable mattress. Very cute outdoor sitting areas with each room and a nice jucuzzi area. Breakfast is not included, but there is no extra charge for parking. The front desk clerks were very helpful. Because of the price, I would probably stay a little further outside of town. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bed too hard"
We loved the restaurant and the "atmosphere". All the staff were very nice and accommodating. However, the bed was so hard, I could almost not get to sleep. Also, the walls are very thin. Could hear everything outside as if it was inside the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel Close to Cottage Hospital & Sansum Clin"
I had an operation at Cottage Hospital. The Hotel had a shuttle service to and from the Hospital. This precluded me and my wife from having to drive and find a parking place. The Hotel also has its own restaurant which was convenient for my wife while I was in Hospital. The Hotel is an easy access from Freeway 101.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the location we needed"
We stayed at the hotel to visit my mother in law at Cottage Hospital. It was a perfect location for this and unexpectedly nice for a last minute stay. The hotel is very nice and the staff is wonderful. We enjoyed our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It's all right."
The hotel was friendly and comfortable, although my wife and I felt that the furnishings were a little dated. Also, the cable TV system was limited, the channel guide difficult to locate and lots of static on some stations. Maybe because of the gorgeous but tall Santa Inez mountains nearby! However, the room and the bathroom were spacious and we enjoyed […] having natural light while bathing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is not right downtown and yet cost the same as a beautiful hotel on the water with a room triple the size, pool, spa etc. Also they say fitness center but no in reality it is in another hotel 2 miles away.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed our short stay, nice room, friendly late night service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall I was pleased with my stay."
Overall everything was ok.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good choice for inland location"
Our only complaint is that we found the king bed to be too firm, and as a result probably would not stay at the location again. That is often a matter of personal choice. Otherwise, very nice pool area, room comfort and restaurant, along with easy freeway access.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff was friendly and helpful but the hotel is older, a little outdated and loud. The rooms are clean and the location is close to state street but for the price was disappointed. We were expecting much nicer. Probably would not stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The hotel could use some upgrading"
The experience was great, there for hospital stay and outpatient proceedures. The staff is very accomodatingGenuine Expedia guest review
We have stayed here in the past, which is why we chose it again. It's very clean and well maintained. The staff are nice and helpful. Overall a good value for the cost.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, well maintained, clean hotel"
This was the cleanest, well maintained 3 star hotel. Stayed for 3 nights. Beds were comfortable with high quality linens. We were close to downtown (a little over 1 mile) and could walk to many restaurants. The price was right and we were upgraded to a 1 BR apartment with a full, complete kitchen. The appliances, as well as the pots and pans, were brand […] new. The pool was clean and pleasant. The only negative is you can hear the freeway from the hotel with the windows open. Didn't bother my husband, but I am a light sleeper. We ran the AC to cover the noise, which worked fine. Highly recommend a stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Shared a single room with queen. Room was spacious enough for two, ample drawer and closet space . Quiet and clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Enjoyed our stay greatlyGenuine Expedia guest review

"Very nice and quite hotel"
Dear all. We loved our stay at this hotel. The staff was extremely helpful. Everything was super clean. It's a great place to stay and rest with our loved ones or family. It's also very close to the center of Santa Barbara. I would recommend that hotel. :))) Dear Staff, you were amazing!!!! Thank you for everything!!!! Thank you for going that extra […] mile to make our vacation memorable!!! :))) God bless you all!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We chose to stay there for our wedding because it seemed to make the most econonomical sense. We got to check in right away. We stayed on the bottom floor because we had so much stuff to haul into the room. Close drive to everywhere we needed to be, so we never had to be on the freeway. Housekeeping does go home early. As we were getting ready for my […] wedding, they didn't make up the room, even though i hung up the service request sign in the afternoon. We just got extra towels from the front office, and I wasn't going to sweat that detail on my big weekend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"FWY or street accessi to those must-see sights."
Our hotel was clean, beautiful rooms, the building and grounds were well-maintained, Cafe on the grounds of the hotel for convenience. Personnel were very courtesy, and helpful in locating sites. Pricing was a slightly high, but well worth the money compared to hotels by the oceanside which were really priced beyond our means.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No real isues"

"Close to UCSB for a parent"
It's a great place to stay for parents of UCSB students while you're in town. Service was great. Very friendly. Rooms were very clean. The hotel is close enough to the university making traveling there very easy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was nice. Took a lil but to get the air conditioning really working (it was a warm day) The surrounding area wasn't great but was okay. We didn't spend any time in the pool but it looked nice as well. It looked like a cottage. Oh yes room above the lobby but it was spacious.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice quiet location. Reasonable price."
This is a very nice hotel in a quiet neighborhood of Santa Barbarbra. The staff were friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. Parking was convenient. EWasy access to either Hwy 101 or State Street. I'd go back any time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great place/ no breakfast"
great stay. wish they had breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel close to the Santa Barbara Bowl"
I had booked a room with two queen beds. When we arrived they gave us an upgrade to a 2 bedroom suite. When they said they were going to upgrade our room, I didn't think much about it. When we got to the room, it was beautiful, clean spacious. We wanted to stay another night..Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quaint spot with really nice people."
I enjoyed our stay there, the staff was friendly, the rooms were clean. Perfect if you're simply passing through Santa Barbara. Would stay again for sure!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfy stay near downtown"
Attractive, clean and comfortable lodging close to downtown. One complaint: service in the cafe was slow and inattentive. We had a late lunch -- after 2 pm -- and there were very few other guests in the cafe. Our server was talking on the phone and socializing with other hotel employees. And, given the inflated, 'high season' pricing for the room, the […] hotel should have provided at least a Continental breakfast rather than just coffee in the lobby.

"2 Day Stay in Santa Barbara"
Really enjoyed our time here. The rooms were clean and updated, bathroom was very nice although a little cramped around the sink area.
