    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Pepper Tree Inn Santa Barbara

    Pepper Tree is nice

    from

    I chose to stay at The Pepper Tree because of the reviews on this site.

    I stayed for about a week. For Europeans, the hotel is a 3 star kind of place. Very, very clean but old-fashioned in design. The furniture appears new. The rooms can be noisy as they are arranged so that you park right outside them. The front desk staff was really pleasant and knowledgeable. I just booked anothe room there for my next stay in SB.

    Pepper Tree - Great

    from

    The hotel and grounds are exquisite. Staff very helpful and polite. Food and Beverages in the adjacent restaurant were great.However, the Pepper tree is miles from downtown Santa Barbera. It is situated right at the West End of state street (which is around 9 miles long)If you want to get to downtown SB, you are looking at $15 cab, with more if you want to return late.With this in mind, if you want to stay on complex, great. If not, get a downtown/beach hotel.

    Seems best bet on State Street

    from

    State Street is the main Santa Barbara road containing most of the motels. This appears to be the best there is on the road, and I can recommend it. The two pools are very pleasant and there are also jacuzzis and numerous loungers by the water. It is not walkable into the centre but that is the case with all of the other motels as well. My only criticism is that the decor is very flowery (bedding and wallpaper) but that is personal choice! It is a relatively old building but refurbished, apart from the very old room heaters.

    Nice place to stay

    from

    I enjoyed our stay at the Pepper Tree Inn. The grounds are what make this hotel nice. The hotel has lots of flowers and two inviting tiled pools. The rooms are clean and have nice balconys that over look the pool areas. I have seen this hotel advertised for over $160 a night, I would not pay that much because the rooms are not anything special and the hotel is not within walking distance of the beach. Still, I would recommend this hotel because it does have charm and is in good driving distrance of the beach areas.

    Rave reviews at Pepper Tree Inn

    from

    After many stays, The Pepper Tree still gets my vote for best hotel in SBA. The staff will jump through hoops to make it perfect. The property is beautiful and immaculate. Don't miss it!

    Clean and comfortable hotel!

    from

    My husband and I found out about this place in our SF Chronicle as a "Highly recommended" hotel to stay in SB at very reasonable prices (compared to the downtown and beach of SB). Clean, spacious rooms with coffee maker, fruit, cookies, refrig and micro. Our room overlooked the pool and hot tub. Nicely kept grounds - very relaxing atmosphere! Nice hotel staff! Hotel is close to shopping, food, and the wineries and only 10 minutes from the action area of downtown! Recommend the "Wine Edventures" tour if you have the chance! Also, free parking!! Looking forward to our next stay at the Pepper Tree!

    Great place to stay!

    from

    My line of work requires at least one overnight stay in Santa Barbara each month. During my 5 years working this company, I have had the opportunity to try a variety of hotels in the area. There is however, no comparison. These days I ALWAYS find myself looking forward to my stay at the Pepper Tree Inn. The friendly staff, clean rooms and beautiful gardens make it a wonderful stay. My wife even looks forward to my business trips. She plans her schedule in hopes to spend time in the heated tiled pool and hottub.

    It's definately worth the stay!

    Unexpected retreat

    from

    Great little full service inn! I was passing through Santa Barbara, stumbled across the Pepper Tree Inn, with it's beautiful pools, even enjoyed a massage! The best things were the little touches in the room, Laura Ashley sheets on the bed, coffee makers, hairdryers, irons...you name it, they've got it! If they don't have it readily available, you can call on their front desk staff and it will be in your hands in minutes! I highly recommend this hotel for business, romance, just passing through, you name it!!!!

    Wonderful staff

    from

    I read the other posting re: this hotel...and the staff, I have stayed at the Pepper Tree Inn a couple of times, and have always been treated with the utmost respect. I have not dined at the restaurant, which perhaps is where the other guest had his/her problems...but the hotel itself is great! Their staff has gone out of their way numerous times to help me with work related issues. I hope that the last review does not deter any future guests from enjoying this great hotel!

    Not Recomended for minorities, people of color

There are nets placed every so often along the dock so you can snag garbage out of the water. The net effect is a beautiful marina. And it should be. A 50 foot slip costs $200,000. That only gets you in the door. Then you still have to pay nearly $600 per month for moorage! ...

    ... We watched them for a while, then had the exciting news that some blue whales were also in the area, so we moved away slightly to watch for them. Blue whales are the world's biggest mammal, and can grow up to 100 feet long. Due to the whaling industry, there are only around 10,000 left in the world, so the chance to see one was incredible. We saw a couple in the distance, but they can dive under for around 13 minutes, and travel huge distances in that time, ...

The first part of it ran down beside a "sometimes" river...right now it is pretty empty until you get to the estuary. Then we hit the path along Ventura Beach. It was kind of like riding the seawall in Vancouver except (thank goodness) it was flat, flat, flat! We stopped to watch the dozens of surfers at ...

    We arrived in Santa Barbara late in the afternoon. It was really warm and pleasant. People were playing volley ball on the beach - they seem to do that a lot here. We walked out on to Stearn's Wharf. There are restaurants on the wharf and you can pay to drive your car up to the entrance and then pay a man to park your car for you - about 10 meters away. Valet parking seems to be a big thing in America. We chose ...
