This hotel is a suites hotel located just outside the lovely seaside town of Santa Barbara. Being just outside of S. B. makes Pacifica Suites very affordable compared to lodging right in S. B. The rooms are nicely appointed with a separate king bedroom and living room with a sofa bed. The staff is outstanding offering excellent restaurant suggestions. Finally,... More

I attended a convention in Santa Barbara and stayed three nights in this hotel. My room was very clean (I think it had been recently remodeled) with a living room area, and the garden was well maintained. Many of the participants agreed that breakfast was decent with many choices and the cooks were very attentive to our order. Orlando and... More

The Pacifica Suites was the recommended hotel for a conference I recently attended at UCSB. I went with essentially no expectations, as I had located the hotel on the map and noted that it was right off the 101 freeway. Several Tripadvisor reviews noted noise from the freeway but the price was right and I wanted to be able to... More

this hotel is located close the the freeway, but secluded and set back from the street. in fact as you are driving you can hardly see the hotel. it is set back in a secluded garden setting. it's next to the sexton house, which was built in 1880 and is on the national list of historic places. the hotel has...

We really enjoyed our room at Pacifica Suites which had a nice deck outside with table and chairs near the grass area and pool. The room was spacious and clean. I have a little quibble with the water which looked and tasted terrible from the faucets. The hotel gives guests two free water bottles in the room though which are... More

Love this place. The rooms are so comfortable with a separate sitting area for relaxing. Great place for kids to run around and there is an original building on site you can explore. A little far from downtown SB but great if you are visiting UCSB.

We had one night in Santa Barbara as the last stop of a road trip from Central California. We found this hotel to be the best choice for our small family of 3. Two nice sized rooms (living and bed) and we were thrilled to have been given a room pool side. My 5 y/o LOVES the pool so we... More

This is a quiet property closer to UCSB then Santa Barbara. That being said, it's a lovely property with nice sized rooms, comfortable beds and it includes a made to order breakfast. Though it was a 15 minute drive from city center, it was a pleasant stay and a relatively good value.

Have stayed at the PS for many years and have never been disappointed. Check in and check out is quick and courteous. Service is excellent. The cooked-to-order breakfast is always nice to have before heading out to work. Will be back.

We choose the hotel, because it was out last stop to the LAX airport (which is a 2-3 hour drive, depending on traffic) and had the benefit of being close to a family friendly beach (8 minutes by car). The hotel itself has only 2-room-suites (spacious living room and bedroom) and a garden / pool area. The staff was very... More
