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.

"Loved our stay in BW Carpinteria."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
One of my favorite amenities at this hotel is the fresh citrus water, which isr available in the lobby. We also appreciated the fitness center and laundry facility. The wait staff in the Sunset Grille restaurant is extremely pleasant and attentive. Chef is also quite good.

"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!).
