    hidden gem
    Hotel exceeded expectations. From the outside it looks like an old travel lodge and not particularly impressive, but the room was beautifully renovated, the location was fabulous and the price was right

    Small, clean, quiet place near the beach
    I challenge the COO and CEO of every large motel chain to book a room and stay one night at the Pacific Crest motel. They would then understand what it takes to get 5 star review from guests. The room was compact and very clean and fresh-looking. There was no add ons for parking, or for wi fi; that stuff that drives guests crazy. The bedding was very comfy; no plastic bedspreads and the towels were large and soft. I'll stay there again, without question.

    Terrible inhospitable owner
    Tried staying here 6-10-18 walk in to the counter at around 8:30 pm and the owner proceeds to wonder where I have been all day and made it seem like it an inconvenience that he had to be there waiting for me. He didn't show any hospitality whatsoever. Then as I'm giving him my information he asks how many people were staying? I proceeded to say My wife and 3 year old daughter. He then says oh now we're going to have a problem and starts berating me about how the room is only for 2 people maximum and that they have rules and what not. I told him that my we were basically going to just sleep for night and she would be no trouble as my daughter was already asleep. He said that the room was strictly only for 2 people and that he wouldn't give us the room. That somehow there rooms where too small to house 2 people and 3 year old that sleeps with their parents. I have never stayed anywhere or even heard that had a room with a queen size bed that couldn't accommodate a toddler or that it was even an issue. He said call "Expedia" and he emphatically said he wouldn't do anything for us. Absolute Jerk of an owner showing no remorse leaving a family without a room to stay for the night and basically stealing their money. I Ended up talking to "Expedia" about it who proceed to call the hotel and happens to speak to a guy about the situation she said he wouldn't give his name and hangs up and doesn't answer their call multiple times only saying that he wouldn't refund anything.

    Will Surpass Your Expectations!
    This was a last-minute getaway for just one night. Usually when a small hotel like this gets extremely high reviews I feel it is because the experience surpassed the expectations of the guest; not that it's necessarily a top-notch hotel. The reviews for this place were so consistently high that I felt comfortable with the decision to stay here but allowed for rating "inflation." Based on our experience, it's hard not to give it a 5 Star Review! The warm and friendly greeting you get from the owners and staff is like a blast from the past. You really feel like they want to make your stay as perfect as possible. The building is not new by any account, but the owners have done great things with it - older on the outside and brand new on the inside. We stayed in one of the "superior" rooms upstairs. It was beautifully remodeled, was clean, very comfortable, and plenty of covered parking. Three things you can usually expect in an older building are small rooms, small bathrooms, and not enough outlets. Ok, the bathroom is on the small side, but not too small. As for the room, it was huge, and the outlets were plentiful. It's not right on the beach, but it's only about 200 yards away. If you plan on taking advantage of the breakfast, don't bring a big appetite, it's mostly finger foods and teas and coffee, but what they have is tasty. We didn't swim in the pool, but I did check it out and the water was quite comfortable. Kudos for the great service, and we will be back!

    Very Good8.0
    More like a B&B than a hotel
    We chose the hotel based on location and reviews, and they were all spot on. Our first night was a bit dicey due to the noise from the room above, but Jennifer and Greg were very kind and moved us to a corner upper room with an actual view of the ocean, and everything was great after that! This is a no frills hotel in probably the best location in Santa Barbara, quiet yet walkable to everywhere and the owners could not have been nicer. They also serve a lovely totally homemade light breakfast that was delicious. Thank you, we hope we have a chance to return!
