We stayed in the Best Western Plus Pepper Tree Inn on 4th October for one night as a stop off during our West Coast road trip and overall had a really great stay. We have previously stayed at this hotel, and really love it.
The check in staff were extremely friendly and efficient upon arrival. The hotel is in the style of a traditional motel with a parking space in front of your room. The hotel room had 2 double beds, a TV, tea/ coffee facilities and an armchair. There was also an outdoor terrace leading from the room which had a lovely view of the gardens and pool area. The only downside was the size of the safe, it was tiny! The whole hotel is surrounded by beautiful greenery and flowers, the groundsmen really take care of the hotel, and there were always staff cleaning and tidying. There are 2 pool areas with jacuzzi's, surrounded by palm trees, it makes for a very peaceful, beautiful and relaxing atmosphere. There is also a fire pit at night and seating area which is a lovely touch.
The hotel is located just over the road from a small retail park with a supermarket and several restaurants so lots of places to eat, however there is also a restaurant on site as an alternative.
Beautiful hotel, extremely well maintained and we will most definitely visit again on our next trip to Santa Barbara. We are always very sad to leave this gorgeous hotel! less
