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!

The whole weekend turned out great, from the wonderful accommodations to the show and the classes. The weather was clear and warm and the show very informative. It was relaxing to sit around the pool in the late afternoon after each day's show was over.

I wish we could have stayed longer to lounge by the pool. Very relaxing morning waking up to complimentary coffee and fruit and sitting on the patio looking out at the courtyard and pool. Exactly what we needed for our one night stay. It was a $10 10 minute Uber ride to downtown. The pillow was comfy and soft but the bed is very firm. Even though… Read more
I wish we could have stayed longer to lounge by the pool. Very relaxing morning waking up to complimentary coffee and fruit and sitting on the patio looking out at the courtyard and pool. Exactly what we needed for our one night stay. It was a $10 10 minute Uber ride to downtown. The pillow was comfy and soft but the bed is very firm. Even though I didn't sleep (I need a soft bed), I'd definitely stay there again. Read less

Pros: Big spacious room with Balcony, Heater, All modern amenities. Free pick and drop to the airport / Amtrak station. Just call them and they will be there in few minutes. Tips: There is no lift so be mindful if you had luggage then take room at ground level or first floor. No breakfast (Seemed a little pricey for the room cost)

We have needed to evacuate from Montecito frequently this season and have always found the Pepper Tree to be accommodating and a second home. It’s located in uptown Inn and we feel safe. The shopping and nearby restaurants are very convenient and it has easy access to head down State street to the touristy areas if you wanted.
