I stayed here for a conference at UCSB. This hotel is right off the freeway and very close to UCSB. The suite we had fit all 6 of us (2 adults and 4 kids) comfortably. Our reservation included breakfast for all of us -- good quality and with lots of choices. There were cookies and apples at the reception area... More

Great, place, staff, clean grounds. Rachel and Michelle , managers were exceptional. Beds and pillows the most comfortable I have ever slept on with the best and softest sheets and pillowcases ever, which is very important to me when I travel.

It's not a luxury hotel, but a very comfortable place. Near the ocean although restaurants and shops are a long walk. There is a pool. Rooms are suites with nice pillows, living room with a Keurig. Balconies overlook the pool. Good place for kids. Breakfast is good, eggs made to order, plastic utensils.

Very convenient location. Close to UCSB, Airport, Goleta Pier, and not far from central Santa Barbara. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating as I was able to get rooms in very short notice. In all my times there, approx. six times with 4-5 day stays, I found the rooms to be clean and the beds very comfortable with all... More

We chose the Pacifica Suites hotel after reviewing 20+ area hotels for the following reasons that were so well represented in the website explanation and pictures: #1: Value vs Price - much higher value for not significantly more than bargain hotels #2: Spaciousness - roomy King bedroom suite with a door to the living room area that has a fold...

SFU Men's Volleyball team enjoyed a the hotel very much. We had several 6 foot 6 inch tall players that slept very well in the queen size beds and even on the pull out couch. The showers were high enough to fit under the shower head, without bending over to wash our hair. Breakfast was amazing. The cooks take your... More

Quality ammenities, flat screen in the living room and bedroom which is a nice touch. Breakfast included which is awesome. Makes things much easier. Really nice size... More

Let me start by saying that from the second I walked in I was treated like a King. Which, is kind of funny because I arrived on a bike covered in mud, covered in dirty sweats and a beat up jacket and backpack. The front desk manager gave me all the information I needed, and also suggested their ridiculously amazing... More

Quiet location, comfortable bed, warm outdoor pool. Beautiful garden setting. The lack of a guest laundry was inconvenient for our family stay; we used a laundromat 1/2 mile down the street. Staff was helpful. Breakfast crowded after 8:15.
