ARLINGTON
Reviewed 21 October 2015

This really is a lovely hotel, but not at all a good value for someone like me who simply wanted to stay close to the airport in order to have an easy little trip to catch a 6 a.m. flight. The "free breakfast" isn't available -- not even a muffin, nothing but very strange tasting coffee out of a machine....

We stayed in this little gem of a hotel in late September as part of a touring holiday. Despite the ongoing renovations, this was a pleasant venue with clean, comfortable rooms and helpful friendly staff. Breakfast was plentiful, tasty with plenty of choice. We would take our coffee outside after we had eaten and drink this sitting in the patio...

My family enjoyed our stay at the Best Western this week while visiting UCSB. The room we had was newly refurbished, had a microwave, fridge, coffee maker and a nice large TV. It had a smallish window but we weren't in town to stay in the room. The beds were comfortable with great pillows too. We typically stay at the...

I recently stayed two nights at this hotel while I was in town for some meetings. The rooms are nicely furnished, good size and very clean. There are many amenities at this property including a microwave and refrigerator in the room and free Wi-Fi. Unlike other hotels I've stayed at, the Wi-Fi here actually worked very well - a nice...

Santa Clarita, California
Reviewed 8 October 2015

This hotel was convenient for our visit to the University of California Santa Barbara. I was happy that breakfast was included in the price. Hot eggs, sausage, a variety of coffees, juices, make your own toast, muffins, yogurt, cold cereal, bananas, etc. The room itself was quiet and the bed was comfortable. Lots of pillows!

We have been staying at this property 2 to 3 times a year for the last 8 years. Friendly and professional staff. Clean rooms and great value for the price. We stay in the hotel apartment. Our grand children come and visit.

Very good and comfortable. However, if they can supply lunch and dinner, it will be much better. Also, there is not tooth brushes tool. I recommend that you can supply some, there would be perfect. Thanks

Rooms were spacious and clean. Pool was more somewhere to cool off rather than swim. No restaurant on site and everywhere nearby closes at 9 except the bowling alley which is hell on earth unless you like being surrounded by students and music so loud you could be in a club! The hotel has renovations going on and the laundry...

Clean, updated room. Beautiful gardens. Friendly staff. My only negatives were the slow wi-fi that one phone couldn't connect to, breakfast food was warm, not hot, and only basic TV channels. The in room instructions for the TV are out of date, so could only find the basic few channels. Was told at checkout that the new instructions weren't back...
