Very convenient location. Close to UCSB, Airport, Goleta Pier, and not far from central Santa Barbara. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating as I was able to get rooms in very short notice. In all my times there, approx. six times with 4-5 day stays, I found the rooms to be clean and the beds very comfortable with all... More

We chose the Pacifica Suites hotel after reviewing 20+ area hotels for the following reasons that were so well represented in the website explanation and pictures: #1: Value vs Price - much higher value for not significantly more than bargain hotels #2: Spaciousness - roomy King bedroom suite with a door to the living room area that has a fold...

SFU Men's Volleyball team enjoyed a the hotel very much. We had several 6 foot 6 inch tall players that slept very well in the queen size beds and even on the pull out couch. The showers were high enough to fit under the shower head, without bending over to wash our hair. Breakfast was amazing. The cooks take your... More

The people here are really great. Room very nice with nice amount of space for 3. Only complaint is I can hear the freeway which is a bummer. Otherwise, the accomodations are nice. Quality ammenities, flat screen in the living room and bedroom which is a nice touch. Breakfast included which is awesome. Makes things much easier. Really nice size... More

Let me start by saying that from the second I walked in I was treated like a King. Which, is kind of funny because I arrived on a bike covered in mud, covered in dirty sweats and a beat up jacket and backpack. The front desk manager gave me all the information I needed, and also suggested their ridiculously amazing... More

Quiet location, comfortable bed, warm outdoor pool. Beautiful garden setting. The lack of a guest laundry was inconvenient for our family stay; we used a laundromat 1/2 mile down the street. Staff was helpful. Breakfast crowded after 8:15.

My husband and I and two hounds (Grey and Basset) have visited here twice now, 2-years ago and again last weekend. We give this "hotel" very high marks and we will be back in the future. This review pertains only to those who know the unique "joys" and burdens of traveling with dogs. So: the rooms are very clean and... More

This place is somewhat hidden, yet very close to 101. Overall great value, breakfast and parking were included. The pool looked nice however missed due to limited hours. There was a manager's reception with beer, wine, cheese and snacks. Wifi good. Room was a spacious suite, surprisingly quiet. Breakfast is cooked to order, with outside seating available, overall nice atmosphere... More

I have stayed in Santa Barbara many times on business and my spouse and I have also stayed in the area, but never found this hidden gem until this trip. What a great surprise! The property reminded me of a plantation with all the trees as we entered. So warm and welcoming. So unlike the sterile entry of so many... More
