Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Best Western Plus Carpinteria Inn

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"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.

"The rooms need attention."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We recently stayed at this hotel for two nights. The first night we stayed in a room on the first floor and I felt like I was sharing the room with every other guest in the hotel. The floor above us squeaked and the walls were so thin I could hear everything from adjacent rooms, the hallway and the parking lot. The front desk was great about accommodating our request to move to a third floor, interior room (which I recommend you request if you stay here). The room was much more quiet and comfortable, but several things did not work such as the desk light which we really needed. To be fair, we did not report this as we did not feel like contacting the front desk again and because we knew it was something more than just a burned out lightbulb. I would probably return to this hotel, but I would definitely request a room on the third floor and I would check all of the lights, etc. as soon as I arrived.

"Disappointed"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The balcony was under construction. The tub did not hold water the stopper didn't work. We used both beds and both of us woke up with red bumps on our legs from bites. The pool was very small and cool so we decided no swimming. No jacuzzi. Gym was nice but there was no disenfectant left in the bottle and no hand sanatizer. The restuarant was nice. The waitress gave my five year old a fancy glass which was not really kid appropriate. I did ask for a to go cup with a lid. The food was good. The courtyard area was pretty. For the price, I will stay down the street. Tried this hotel out because it looked really nice online.

"Hotel was adequate but would not recommend."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Room/bathroom too small. Some dust on furniture, stain on bedspread. Staff friendly and helpful but cannot make up for lack of amenities. No coffee/tea station for Sunday morning when restaurant was closed. If you need to stay here make sure you book a room facing the courtyard. View of courtyard made room slightly more pleasant.

"Aged property, thin walls, no maid service, overpriced."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We won't be coming back. Aged property is overpriced.No maid service; thin walls and ceiling;footsteps in floor above heard in our room. Dinky pool and algae filled hot tub (clearly a health hazard), and also way too small! Great coffee in restaurant, tho. Pretty koi pond, lush looking greenery in front of establishment and in courtyard the only positive we found. Beds too soft and unsupportive on edges. Update, or become a motel 6!

"A Good Stay in Carpinteria."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We stayed for three nights and it was a good experience. We did have problems with the use of the phone in which the front desk was not helpful. We also had a problem with the TV and that was solved immediately by technician. We were also disappointed that breakfast was not included. Other than that it was a good experience.

"Room was nice. Very convenient location."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Check in process could have been made more clear. The room was in my name, my husband took our credit card to check in and they asked if he could bring back my picture ID. When he did they told him I actually had to go in and check in the hotel myself. I was in the car with a toddler who is upset after 12 hours in the car. They should've have just asked for me to come in and not just my ID. Both names were on the credit card that it was paid with.

"Overhead Stomping and No Tea."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This was my first time staying in the Best Western Plus and my stay was ok. Housekeeping did well on cleaning the room; however when I left a note saying that the remote control batteries seemed to be weak, the remote still didn't work well. Could be a bad remote. Also, although there was plenty of coffee in the room; for us tea drinkers there was nothing. The worse part was the overhead heavy walking that we experienced both nights; it was so loud it woke us up. The nice lady at the Front Desk told us during check out that the walls are thin. I guess the floor boards are too. Last but not least was the lack of any kind of complementary breakfast. I picked this Hotel; because I thought is was provided; but I was wrong. I will not be staying again; because I like complementary breakfast. Although I would like to say that I appreciate the free parking and Wi fi. Thank you. Overall, as I mentioned, my stay was ok; but probably won't be repeated.

"Terrible Service"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Never got room service. Bathroom sink backed up by itself while getting ready. No one had used sink. Bathroom stunk like sewer. Called for help and it took over an hour for a response (had an appointment to be at). Don't know if ever came back. During booking reservation were told free breakfast was included. Front desk refused to comply. Email of our reservation was shown and not good enough. Asked for room service. Could not receive any because room service leaves by 5:00 pm. Horrible!

"Nice hotel, stay on the top floor."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This hotel is a little on the expensive side, but it's a very nice property that doesn't feel like it's part of a chain. When we checked in we were given a room on the first floor facing the courtyard with a patio, which was great, but the next morning we were woken up at 8am by the person above us moving around. I'm normally not that sensitive to noise but the floorboards must have been pretty old and creaky, because it was LOUD. Fortunately when we bought it up to the front desk staff they were totally accommodating and moved us right away into a new room on the third floor which was perfect. The bar staff was friendly (as were the drink prices) and the breakfast at the restaurant was good. The pool and spa are both small (the spa's maximum capacity is three people) but still enjoyable and the pool area does have chairs you can layout on. There's also a small but well equipped gym that has lots of cardio equipment as well as free weights and a weight machine. The location is also great; Carpenteria is a small town so it just takes about a 10 minute walk along the main street to get into the downtown area and about just as long to get to the train station or the beach. The only thing to note is that the hotel is pretty close to the freeway. While we did not hear any noise from it in our room, if you had a room with a city view it might impact you. All in all we had an enjoyable stay and would recommend this hotel (just request a courtyard room on the top floor!).
