      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

      Hello from the fabled North Channel Islands of Southern California.

      In what is becoming a more and more welcome occurrence we had a great sail from Ventura to Santa Cruz Island. Santa Cruz is the biggest of the Channel Islands. It is one of four Islands that are referred to as the North Channel Islands. The most well known of the Channel Islands is Catalina Island. Technically it's name is Santa Catalina but we guess people get tired of ...

Going out on the lake on a houseboat would be brilliant. I must try that next time. After the lake cruise we had dinner overlooking the canyon and the most spectacular sunset. The next day we headed for the Grand Canyon. As we approached a key section of the road on Route 89 we encountered a roadblock - ...

It was quite a sight to see, there were literally hundreds of them lining the beach. After watching them for a while, we continued driving til we reached Morro Bay, a pretty, sleepy little seaside village halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. We took a walk along the coastline, checking out the shops as well as a skateboard museum which ...
