"So glad we stayed at Pacific Crest" ★★★★★ I stayed here with my husband and 10 year old son in August 2017. Our room had modern updates and was clean, light, well ventilated, and quite beautiful. It is obvious that the hotel owners take a lot of pride in the property and in their hospitality. They were super friendly and accommodating and they even provided a small refrigerator for our room after hearing that our son had food allergies. They were also knowledgeable about the area having lots of recommendations for things to do and places to eat. All of this combined with the very short distance to the beach made our stay perfection. Santa Barbara was our favorite part of our vacation largely due to our decision to stay at Pacific Crest. 10/10 would recommend.
