I chose Pacifica Suites for a spot to stay for my bachelorette party weekend. We had 3 rooms between nine girls and it was perfect! Each room had plenty of space and everyone was pretty comfortable (I mean, a sofa bed is a sofa bed, after all). The made-to-order breakfast was a great touch. When I'm back in the area,... More

We stayed just north of Santa Barbara for a wedding in Goleta, California. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Our expectations based upon reviews and website were met and mostly exceeded our expectations. The bed was very comfortable and plenty of pillows. The shower water pressure was perfect and the breakfast was delicious cooked to order and included! We... More

We had such a pleasant stay from start to finish. Kelcy, the front desk agent who checked us in, was beyond accommodating and so nice. We checked in quite late in the evening, but there was absolutely no hassle and we immediately felt right at home. The breakfast was wonderful and I loved how it was made to order. The... More

Didn't even look at the pictures when I booked this place. I just read the reviews and booked it. I didn't know it would be so quaint with pretty grounds (I guess I didn't read all the reviews). I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were very nice with we checked in and we were greeted with freshly baked cookies. Our... More

I have driven by Pacifica Suites numerous times on my way to UCSB. This time, I stayed there. Location is central to UCSB and great surfing beaches. Facilities were clean, quiet, and modern. Breakfast was excellent. Staff was friendly and highly attentive to our needs. Staying here made taking our son back to school more of a vacation than a... More

With a student about to attend UCSB, we are searching for a comfortable Santa Barbara/Goleta hotel and are trying out a variety of spots. This place is a very adequate option. It's convenient to campus, and is clean and quiet (ask for a room away from the freeway side.) The grounds are lovely, the pool looked nice, and breakfast is... More

I stay in hotels 100+ times a year and you get a little tired of these cookie cutter places..sorry Hampton Inn. This place looks completely different from the usual chain hotel. Several buildings on beautiful grounds, large shade trees, palm trees, bird of paradise, they seem to have almost everything. The whole place has a very 'Key West' or 'Siesta... More

Great place to stay. All the rooms are 2 room suites, enough for 6 people to sleep in. Coffee pot and fridge in the room. Nice pool and hot tub. Great breakfasts, all cooked to order. Centrally located. Easy access to freeway, the beach, UCSB. Complimentary happy hour, and warm cookies later on. Grounds were lovely, and well kept.
