We have stayed at the Best Western in Carpinteria before, went there again and this time I think it was even better. It is better than it should be for the inexpensive price they charge, especially when you get a coupon/discount offer from online sites if you watch for them.
It is sooo clean. That's the first thing you will notice. Even the plants are clean. The rooms are spacious and ours had a fridge and coffeemaker and all the amenities you could want in a big name hotel. They also have a restaurant and happy hour. We went to another place in town for happy hour only to find out that the hotel bar and happy hour is preferred by the locals. We also received a continental breakfast that was very nice. You must go to the restaurant but our seats overlooked the gardens and it was lovely. Good coffee.
Excellent service from the desk to the restaurant to the housekeepers you meet in the hallway. We stay here to go into Santa Barbara and go to the beach, galleries, dine. The money we save here we can put on a piece of art or dinner. It really is a hotel that we will go back to often. Oh, just thought of one negative. I had trouble manipulating the shower head to go to spray. I am not tall enough to get a good grasp of it. Anyone going to Santa Barbara or the Ventura Coast should definitely stay here. less
