Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Best Western Carpinteria Inn

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Budget friendly group hotel"
Overall Score3.5/ 5
A group friendly hotel with the lowest rates in and out of Santa Barbara, most of the time. Has a lot of what most groups are looking for in a hotel property, free Wi-Fi, free parking, mini fridge, on-site laundry, outdoor, Jacuzzi, interior corridors and rooms with queen beds. While breakfast is not included, there is a restaurant/bar onsite on the third floor. The closest freeway is the 101, 10 miles south of Santa Barbara, close to old town Carpinteria, close to the local beach and a short drive to retail stores, grocery store, fast food, and gas stations. It is deal for all group types on a budget and needing/wanting all the amenities.

Verified Reviews of Best Western Carpinteria Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"We Were a Large Group and Had a Terrific Experience Due to Staff!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We had to get 10 plus rooms during the holiday week. We had the Best Western Carpinteria offer us the best deal and they were very helpful in the set up, what was needed and assisted in helping those families that were joining us to get rooms as well. Daisy Velsaco was absolutely terrific in helping us with our our stay from rooms to food with their Sunset Grille Restaurant. Norma, who oversees the Grille was a great help too! From Oscar to Kyle at the front desk and the GM, Kevin, even took time out to see how our stay was going. Very impressed with the "family" type atmosphere they displayed. I would recommend this particular hotel definitely based on the quality facility, but the staff is something you do not always see at large hotels. GREAT!
