We stayed at Pacifica Suites with 3 kids during the Memorial Day weekend. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was great, cook to order eggs, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, pastries, juices, coffee. Everything was delicious and service was very efficient. The on-site restaurant only offers breakfast but within less than 10 minutes drive you can find almost... More

Had a very nice stay with 5 adults sharing one suite. Lovely breakfast, both hot and cold dishes. The garden was so pretty, loved walking around and look at all the different plants and flowers. Clean, comfortable bed and rooms, would not mind coming back here!

It's hard to know how to rate this hotel. The suite was clean, comfortable, and the grounds were private and nicely landscaped. BUT the water from the tap was brown and had a very unpleasant taste. There was a card in the bathroom explaining that the water (drawn from a well on property, apparently) "sometimes appears tinted" due to the... More

I was in Goleta for business and didn't have much time to take advantage of the Pacifica Suites amenities. It seems like a well managed oasis in the middle of a growing area. The location is great -- close to both the airport and UCSB, but the setting makes it seem like an island of tranquility. My rate included both... More

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.
