2.5 stars... TripAdvisor has never let me down until now. Based on the pictures and reviews, I was expecting a nice hotel. However, this is not a 3-star+ hotel. It's more like a 2-star motel. Definitely not what I was expecting for over $200/night. Pros: - The room was okay, but nothing high-end, just average. - Good proximity (30-minute drive)... More

We've stayed here 2 or 3 times a year in the last 5 years as our daughter considered, attended and graduated from UC Santa Barbara. A suite was needed as we usually traveled with a sibling or were met by one. There's plenty of room for 3 or 4 people to spend the night. Hotel has good pool/spa and excellent... More

We came here to visit as part of our UCSB. Although my daughter decided not to attend UCSB, I would highly recommend this hotel to parents of UCSB students. The front staff was very accommodating... I needed to change our reservation when I arrived on site. The included breakfast was delicious... made to order eggs. My only complaint is that... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find this hotel in a rather out-of-the-way location compared to downtown yet very accessible. We stayed in a room that looked like it was close to the freeway but we discovered it was NOT the 101 Freeway and there was no road noise at all. Compared to may other places that include a breakfast, this... More

SB is one of our favorite vacation spots. Typically we stay in the heart of everything (state street or by the beach) but everything was booked this time around, so we found this spot. When driving in I started to get anxious, as we passed many exits in SB, this place is in Goleta just outside the city right next... More

Very close for a visit to UCSB (5-7 minutes). Rooms are suites and comfortable but somewhat dated. Hot tub was working and water was hot which was nice. Lobby could really use some updating. The main sofa in the lobby had visible stains and was not very comfy. Nice that they had hot tea and coffee in the lobby. Not... More

One of the closest places to UCSB (about a seven-minute drive) and certainly the nicest. Staff very helpful, especially the cheerful people cooking the made-to-order breakfast included with the room. Nice pool area and jacuzzi (though the chlorine can be a bit strong). The grounds are lovely - lots of flowers and birds - and I picked some delicious tangerines... More

LOCATION: Near the airport, easy access to freeway, sort of an oasis in the middle of a bunch of concrete. The entrance is a little difficult to find as the sign is small. Since there is a median you can only approach from one direction. SERVICE: Friendly, helpful staff. We arrived a little after their regular airport shuttle hours, but... More

My family recently stayed here for a few nights on a road-trip to Santa Barbara. We found the staff to be welcoming and enjoyed that all the rooms were suites! They make a "to order" hot breakfast every morning and have a nice wine and snacks reception. I would definitely recommend this for others!
