What a great find!! The location is so close to UCSB! The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are not the most modern, but they are spacious, comfortable, and offer a Keurig coffee machine and complimentary bottled water. Much appreciated and a nice touch! Loved the complimentary cookies when we arrived and the cooked to order complimentary breakfast was wonderful and... More

Great location in Goleta, convenient to UCSB, Santa Barbara shopping and the beach. Building exteriors & stairways reflect the wear and tear from being coast side, but interiors were pleasant and roomy. Grounds well kept and large pool. Added feature was the cooked to order breakfast each morning. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

Our family was in town to visit UCSB as my oldest checks out prospective colleges to attend. Pacifica Suites was a pleasant surprise. We travel frequently and my wife sees hundreds of hotels as a flight attendant. Pacifica's staff was pleasant and very helpful. Our suite was spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. The free breakfast was a definite plus and... More

Spacious well equipped rooms. Very comfortable beds. Friendly and attentive staff. Delicious breakfasts. The grounds are lovely and well kept. No fitness room but access to a super health club. Good size pool. Relaxing outdoor hot tub. Convenient location. No hassles.

Our family of four had a lovely stay at Pacifica Suites while visiting UCSB. We didn't take advantage of the hotels facilities because our visit was so brief but we could see other families enjoying the pool and I wished we'd had time to go biking. Breakfast was very nice and everyone was very friendly. I would definitely stay there... More

I've done my fair share of traveling, and I've stayed in some very nice places and some true dumps. As a soon to be graduate student (I was visiting ucsb for a prospective student visit), I fear that my time in the nicer hotels is becoming more limited. Luckily, the Pacifica Suites was a true gem. It is conveniently located... More

I stayed here for a conference at UCSB. This hotel is right off the freeway and very close to UCSB. The suite we had fit all 6 of us (2 adults and 4 kids) comfortably. Our reservation included breakfast for all of us -- good quality and with lots of choices. There were cookies and apples at the reception area... More

Great, place, staff, clean grounds. Rachel and Michelle , managers were exceptional. Beds and pillows the most comfortable I have ever slept on with the best and softest sheets and pillowcases ever, which is very important to me when I travel.
