Verified Reviews of Best Western Plus Pepper Tree Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Nice hotel to stay in and best pricing I could find."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
When we arrived we were greeted with warmth and gratitude. The property is very nice in terms of location with easy access to freeway, food right next to the hotel and within walking distance. It also had plenty of parking, decent amenities with pool and jacuzzi on each side of the hotel wings. The property has natural beauty with inner garden, covered fire pit with seating and grown mature trees with privacy for the large balcony. The room was nice and comfortable for this climate there is a wall air conditioner which kept us cool or you can open the balcony door for fresh air. The rates were the best I could find in town for the Fathers Day weekend and its not in the hustle and bustle of downtown SB which can be pricey 375 500 a night depending on your choice of hotel and Star Level you prefer to pay for. We did have an issue with the bathroom sink but was fixed in a reasonable time. Staff is always kind and respectful and courteous. We would stay here again and is close to shopping and gas stations, Whole Foods is down the street along with Gelsons, many services available all around. We are picky about hotels and found this to be a really nice stay and visit. We would recommend checking this Best Western Plus Pepper Tree Inn if it fits your criteria.

"Dated, not picked up and replenished between the two days I was in it."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Was surprised for the lack of housekeeping support and breakfast availability at a "diner" like facility on the premises. Yes the bed was made, but the room was not completely re supplied between the two days I was in it and did not get really touched otherwise. The bed was barely re made (was kind of "crumpled") and the bathroom supplies were not replenished. It was also patently obvious the carpet had not been recently vacuumed either when I checked in, or in between the two days I was in the room. I come to Santa Barbara a couple of times a month and frankly, am glad to leave this Best Western and will not return. Just too many other options in and around Santa Barbara which do not have these drawbacks.
