Nestled in Goleta, between the SBA airport and downtown makes this hotel an ideal location while staying in SB. Rates are reasonable and the rooms are spacious. Each room has a separate living room and sink outside the bathroom. Guests have the separation when bringing over friends and other guests without even having a view into the bedroom. The sinks...

Second visit - still lovely and they've sorted out the breakfast service which is now perfectly efficient and with sufficient seating. Good service throughout with a good pool and well equipped clean rooms.

If you do anything but casual web browsing while in a hotel don't come here. The internet is wireless only and is really bad. Connection loss happens on all of my devices (phone, kindle, laptop). Very frustrating considering the Hampton a couple of hundred feet away has great internet.

We came here for a quick stay-cation and had a great time. The property is beautifully landscaped and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Excellent breakfast and service overall. The only cons I can think of were minor, clumpy powdered creamer in the in-room coffee bar and the pool was a little small. Otherwise it's a great place to stay... More

Property, gorgeous, beds, including the sofabed, comfortable. I really appreciated the layout of the suite. Locating the mirror & vanity in a niche accessible directly from either the bedroom or the living room makes it easier to share without disturbing sleeping family members. WiFi is excellent. We were connecting smartphones and an Android tablet. In many hotels, these devices constantly... More

Enjoyed the beautiful grounds and a pleasant room. The suite configuration is good for families. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. The breakfast is fast and cooked-to-order, which we appreciated.

Overall a great property Pros 1. Real breakfast, cooked to order, with many options. e.g. omelettes & breakfast burritos. This is a rare find in the US. 2. Spacious suites, clean and well decorated, with separate living areas. Sink is separate from the toilet/shower which was helpful for our family. 3. Excellent staff that was very helpful and accommodating 4.... More

This was our first visit to Pacific Suites and its was a great stay. Michelle at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was large and very clean. The hotel grounds are beautiful with historical buildings, pool, spa and many varieties of plants and flowers. The complimentary cocktail reception 5-7pm was outstanding; draft Firestone DBA and a...

This is a simple place that exceeded our expectations. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Shout out to Orlando who helped us out when, upon checkin, we discovered that Expedia did not forward our reservation. He got us in to a great room without even a hiccup. The wine reception was a welcome treat and well received by many... More
