Best Western PLUS Pepper Tree Inn

Santa Barbara, California Coast

The hotel

This luxurious, Spanish-inspired resort hotel is nestled within five acres of tropical gardens. Guest rooms continue the theme with Hacienda-style furnishings and patios and balconies overlooking the gardens and courtyards. In the grounds are two tiled swimming pools and two whirlpools, great to lounge by on sunny days. The Treehouse Restaurant serves delicious American fare and offers room, patio and poolside service, so you can eat and drink without ever leaving the sun deck! There are also massage treatments to ease away your everyday cares. If you’re in need of retail therapy, La Cumbre Plaza is adjacent or head 2 miles to downtown Santa Barbara for a wider selection of shops and restaurants. For hiking, Los Padres National Forest is just 7 miles with the Santa Ynez Mountains slightly further. Beautiful stretches of sandy beach are also just minutes away by car. However you spend your days, the Pepper Tree Inn will be a more than welcome sight upon your return - we guarantee it!

We stayed here just one night - right off State Street and across from the Shopping Center - good location. The staff here was great - friendly at check-in and out. Plenty of Parking. Were assigned a room on 2nd floor in the back overlooking a grassy courtyard area, which was nice and quiet, not to be above the swimming pool. Large size room… Read more
We stayed here just one night - right off State Street and across from the Shopping Center - good location. The staff here was great - friendly at check-in and out. Plenty of Parking. Were assigned a room on 2nd floor in the back overlooking a grassy courtyard area, which was nice and quiet, not to be above the swimming pool. Large size room with parking right outside. We enjoyed sitting on the veranda/deck and looking out over the garden with a glass of wine. Quite pleasant. Either we had quiet neighbors or the walls actually had some soundproofing as we had no issues sleeping on a Friday night! We went into town in the evening and it was an easy and short drive down State Street to downtown. Very convenient. Would come here again. Read less

Stayed here a couple of times. Will always go back. Older property but very well maintained. From the front desk to housekeeping - staff is great !!!! They know the area and can suggest restaurants and attractions.

The beds were comfortable and sheets were clean. Our room was around the back of the lobby, on the ground floor with a parking lot right outside so… Read more

The beds were comfortable and sheets were clean. Our room was around the back of the lobby, on the ground floor with a parking lot right outside so you can hear a lot of talking in the morning (from the parking lot and the people around the pool). I didn't even make it to the lobby but they have free coffee. Read less
