Great location just steps from East Beach; large, clean, and comfortable rooms; and very accommodating staff--an excellent place for a stay in Santa Barbara. Great service, a good night's sleep, and homemade treats for breakfast. Greg and Jennifer go out of their way to make sure you are well taken care of, even calling me and sending a shirt to...

Based on the fact that most Hilton, Hyatt and other hotels have not been renovated in 10-30 years you will love the rooms. Stayed in a King Bed room which is so lovely and spacious, extremely clean and decor is great I recommend staying here. Obviously not a place you will get room service, but who needs that when staying...

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are glad that you enjoyed your room and your stay with us. No, we don't have a restaurant on-site, but we have tried to replicate "room-service" with the great delivery services available in Santa Barbara. Restaurant Connection and SB Bites have been a really great resource when you just want to relax in...

One block or so from the beach, on a quiet side street, the homey Pacific Crest Hotel is a can't-miss hit as a location for one night, or longer. When we drove up, we were struck immediately by the immaculately clean exterior and brilliant blue-green pool, which bespoke the squeaky-clean condition of our room.

The motel has been completely renovated. It is well-located only a few blocks from the beach and a ten minute drive from downtown. The Mishkins are very friendly and helpful and my wife raved about the quiche served for breakfast.

We decided the best way to see the PCH was to stay in boutique hotels as much as possible on our trip. This hotel did not disappoint, it is a family owned, a short walk from the beach. We had a bit of trouble finding the hotel, I called and spoke to Jennifer a couple of times, she gave me...

Don't second- guess your decision to stay at Pacific Crest. All the wonderful reviews on TripAdvisor were spot-on. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived after a very long and tiring drive. Owners Greg and Jennifer greeted us with a smile and answered all our questions about where to eat, etc. and we felt at home. We knew immediately...

So I did not mean to stay at the Pacific Crest Hotel the first time because I was hell bent on staying at another hotel that I had stayed at before. However, I am so glad that I decided to stay. I must admit that I was skeptical when I drove up because this hotel didn't look as modern as...
