Best Western PLUS Pepper Tree Inn

Santa Barbara, California Coast

The hotel

This laid-back Spanish-inspired hotel is nestled in five acres of landscaped grounds. Take in the scene from your balcony or patio as you gaze out over the lush gardens and courtyards. Why not wander down and enjoy a drink by the fire pit, dip in one of the pools or whirlpools, or grab a lounger and chill. The Treehouse Restaurant offers patio and poolside service, so you can eat and drink without leaving the sun deck. You can stroll to the shops and restaurants at La Cumbre Plaza, which are across the road. And perhaps hire a bike or jump in your car and head into downtown Santa Barbara, a couple of miles from the Pepper Tree Inn — or to one of the area's beautiful beaches, only minutes away.

They had great food, homemade pies, etc. They also had a comfortable, great bar, that's closed too. Likely forever. All destroyed in just a few months. Tragic. Read less

Over priced for the current covid-19 situation. Probably a nice, comfortable place during normal times. Restaurant closed, no gym, no pool, no daily cleaning service, no transportation other than airport. Early morning noise when the truckers, construction personnel leave.
