"Close to marina"
Hotel was a 5 min walk to a working marina and a very nice restaurant. The restaurant recommended by the hotel owner and he was spot on. It was a real joy being so close to the water.

"Nice quiet hotel close to Carpenteria State Beach"
The Best Western Carpinteria Inn is a nice quiet hotel a few blocks away from the Carpenteria State Beach and only a block from the Hwy. 101 Freeway. We had delicious breakfasts and other meals at the Sunset Bar and Grille on the third floor overlooking their lush tropical courtyard. It's also just a short drive to Santa Barbara with the harbor, beaches and variety of excellent restaurant's. This was a pleasant, relaxing place to stay and at reasonable prices.

"Staff MADE this stay even better..."
While the hotel is nice and at a great location, the Staff totally made our stay even better. Checked in after a day at the zoo with our 1 and 4 year olds, and staff got us checked in super fast. To add to that, at check-in, I joked with them how refreshing that bottle of champagne they had out would be after such a long day at the zoo....and they had it delivered to our room. Nice touch staff!!! Room décor is slightly dated, as mentioned in other reviews, but room was VERY clean and nicely equipped with a full kitchen. The grounds were perfectly cleaned, even despite the rain. Wine and Cheese is a great touch, and so was milk and cookies!! Would totally come back to this hotel again and again.

It was overall a terrific stay, though the room—particularly the bathroom—albeit charming, was very cramped. Apart from that, the bed was comfortable, our views from both windows were wonderful and we will undoubtedly return soon!

"Luxury resort with luxury prices"
Very nice resort, beautifully landscaped property, very friendly staff. Only small negative aspect are the extremely high prices charged for any service consumed inside the resort. At room charges easily in the high hundreds it feels a bit ridiculous to be also charged a 30$ parking fee and another 30$ resort fee.... list can be continued. So great place to enjoy and indulge but be aware of the charges.. not all is value for money.
