Best Western Plus Santa Barbara

Hotel in Santa Barbara Downtown, Santa Barbara

This Santa Barbara, California hotel is located 3 miles from Stearn’s Wharf on the Pacific Ocean. The hotel offers free WiFi and cable TV in every room. Our apartment was very clean and seemed renovated! The room was very spacious, especially the living room. We had a great time with my family citing and chatting there. I'd say that it's a great place for family gatherings. We totally loved it. We didn't have a chance to check the pool but they do have it. Also, they have a restaurant on their territory. The property has a lot of parking spaces but FYI they consider 1 parking space per 1 room. We had 2 cars and the manager was nice enough to give us the second parking because they had a lot of rooms available. In our room, we had a fully functioning kitchen so we bought some groceries and had a family diner right in our room. It was great! And the most important part we had a coffee maker in our room :)
