Best Western Plus Encina Lodge & Suites Hotel Review

: Hidden in a nondescript section of Santa Barbara, this 122-room property offers a wide range of accommodations, from simple guest rooms to suites and apartments. Though it bills itself as a luxury hotel with the charm of a bed-and-breakfast, it doesn’t approach either of those extremes. There is, however, a large swimming pool, and the on-site restaurant has something for everyone, including a full bar. The location, deep within Santa Barbara’s medical district, adjacent to Cottage Hospital, leads to a mixed clientele: hospital visitors and extended-stay guests are common. Many of the units have full kitchens. All feature practical amenities like air-conditioning, refrigerators, coffee makers and high-speed wireless Internet. An on-site aviary provides a unique distraction in an otherwise ordinary neighborhood. While it feels somewhat isolated, the hotel is only a few miles from downtown, and even closer to the Old Mission, Santa Barbara’s cultural and historic landmark.
