As my wife likes to say, "3 is not the new 2!" Ever since our three kids entered the teen years, a standard hotel room has not been big enough to hold us. So to avoid having to book two rooms on family vacations, we have been staying in rental homes or hotels with suite accommodations. Well I can tell... More

Pacifica Suites has a great Goleta location, has clean, landscaped grounds full of trees, bushes and flowers, has top-notch front desk service, has high quality cook-to-order breakfasts and has a very COMFORTABLE bed.

Was looking for a hotel that wouldn't break the bank over a holiday weekend. This popped up on one of the booking sites and I liked the location north of the city, but an easy drive in for dinner. There was a very nice wine tasting available Sun-Thurs with local Santa Barbara wines, soft drinks and cold bottled water and... More

The hotel is very close to the 101, to UCSB, to beautiful Goleta State Beach, and not far from downtown Santa Barbara, but it's nevertheless a very quiet and peaceful place, with a central inner yard with a nice pool and palm trees. The rooms (actually suites) are huge and cozy. Personally, I missed a working desk - maybe people... More

They have a great "stay and play" package. The hotel took care of making our tee time at Sandpiper. When we arrived at Sandpiper to play all we did was give our name and that was it. We were good go. We did not need extra time to have breakfast as we ate at the hotel which included breakfast with... More

We've visited Goleta for the last four years over Presidents' Weekend for a lacrosse tournament and I've stayed at a couple of hotels. I just made my reservation for our third visit to Pacifica Suites. If you are headed to UCSB, it's a quick trip down 217 to the heart of campus, avoiding traffic on the 101. Check in and... More

Naice manicure gardens, a nice clean hotel, furnisher needs updating, front desk represetative not very welcoming on the cold side. There was only one friendly smiling face there, and that was during breakfast ,the waiter. Definitely not a 300 dolls. hotel.

I have a student at UCSB. I have stayed at multiple places on State Street where there is a "scene", but on the last visit with my student I wanted to stay closer to campus. I found this hotel to be a great solution. It is moments from campus and close to services. The grounds are tropical and beautiful, and... More

At these prices the rooms and bathrooms could use an upgrade. The grounds are beautiful, the pool and hot tub are adequate, the free cooked to order breakfast was generous and good. A plus for me was that when I complained about a noisy generator they knocked $50 off the room price per night, bringing it more in line with... More

Pacifica Suites is the best stay in Santa Barbara. I have stayed in other hotels in the area and none compare to the friendly staff and accommodations you receive. It truly is a home away from home. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms are large with its own living room area. Whether on business or pleasure, my family... More
