Ramada stay Summer

I got it just 2-day before my arriving. Even though my room is close to highway, it is not bad, counting tool ate reservation. Free internet, and free breakfast are major merits with this hotel, for business trip.

Disappointed

The hotel is very conveniently located. But the A/C worked very poorly and was never fixed, despite a promise. The maid staff missed our room one day and tried to skip it the next.

Ramada Santa Barbara, CA-

I have stayed with my 11 year old son twice in the past 3 months, 8-9 days each trip, and really like the property. Great room, great pool, great ponds w/ducks. Kids will love this. Renovated lobby, security gates, very nice landscaping. Friendly service. Would like if the property had a small restaurant. Highly recommend...!

No Pressure

While I think this hotel is comfortable and family friendly and has a beautiful new lobby there were couple of things travelers should be aware of. First, you must have your key at all times or you may find yourself stuck (even in the inner courtyard). Second, the water pressure and temperature regulation is horrible. You need to hold the toilet handle down for a good thirty seconds or more to get a decent flush. When you get in the shower be prepared to dance as the temperature will fluctuate wildly from cold to scalding requiring you to hop in and out of the spray repeatedly to keep from getting scalded. The breakfast is limited but there is an IHOP right across the street and the hotel has 20% off discount cards at the desk. You do have to ask for them.

Weekend trip with child

Staff were very helpful with getting room type we wanted, as well as directions and discounts to local restaurants. Pool was very warm and wonderfully clean. Lagoon very beautiful and ducks were adorable. Major complaint was the free breakfast- could not do because no where to sit and eat. Went to IHOP across the street- hotel discount was 20% with food and staff terrific! Lobby was being remodeled so this was an unsightly inconvenience but overall, a good time.

nice quiet restful place

Everything was nice and clean, the staff was very good and nice. We were very happy to find a nice quiet hotel, some hotels I have been at are around business that start work very early and make alot of noise. As this was not a pleasure trip we did not get to use the pool but it looked good. The breakfast was a little disappointing but ok.
