Nice hotel near city centerThe hotel rooms are very cozy and comfortable. There is no HBO etc on the TV but it did not bother us. The rooms have good size. The bathroom is quite big and has free shampoo and soaps. We had one on the second floor which I prefer. The indoor pool was great and heated and the hotel also has a spa ...

It is corporate, without charm, but an acceptable overnight place for the price in the expensive Santa Barbara market. I'd stay there again for an overnight, or on business, but would not ...

You Wouldn't Believe ItMy wife booked this and I said to her: "At a Ramada Inn, why did you do that???" Turns out, THIS Ramada is like no other: great, comfortable, pleasant, and, what more can I say? It is a little bit "out-of-town" but totally worth it: the courtyard with pool, ducks, etc makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. ...
