Nice location, standard rooms

Perfect accommodations for a guys' golf trip. The rooms were a good size. however the hot tub and pool were not very impressive to say the least

Ramada Santa Barbara

Between Santa Barbara downtown and UCSB. Quite place. Clean but furniture is old. No central AC. A noisy AC machine in the room. Very nice free breakfast though.

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.
