We had a lovely time staying at Pacifica Suites. The rooms are huge - we had a lounge area and a bedroom, 2 TVs, a small refrigerator, and more than enough room. The hotel was very clean and the staff was excellent. The free daily breakfast certainly exceeded our expectations! An assortment of items available, made to order. Additionally, happy... More

Very convenient location for us as we were visiting UCSB. Rooms were very large and we were lucky to get one in the back where it was particularly quiet. Would easily accommodate 4 people, especially if 2 were children. The made-to-order breakfasts were terrific and they had a very good system for ordering. Please tip the cooks--they do a fantastic...

We happened on this place and are pleased we did.. we've visited Santa Barbara several times in the past and always selected places along the waterfront, one of the attractions of being there and would have done so again but this was to be a short trip, not a vacation and airport convenience and highway access important. We very much... More

We recently stayed here with our 16 & 12 year old children & thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and the wonderful staff there. From fresh baked cookies in the afternoon, to made to order breakfasts, to a wine & appetizer reception during the week, they really know how to make you feel welcome & pampered! The front desk staff was always... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights for a wedding we were attending. Luckily, we got a group rate because when I looked online (without using the group rate) it was $300/night. Santa Barbara is pricey in general but I would probably look around for something a little more plush for $300 a night. With that being said,... More

As my wife likes to say, "3 is not the new 2!" Ever since our three kids entered the teen years, a standard hotel room has not been big enough to hold us. So to avoid having to book two rooms on family vacations, we have been staying in rental homes or hotels with suite accommodations. Well I can tell... More

Was looking for a hotel that wouldn't break the bank over a holiday weekend. This popped up on one of the booking sites and I liked the location north of the city, but an easy drive in for dinner. There was a very nice wine tasting available Sun-Thurs with local Santa Barbara wines, soft drinks and cold bottled water and... More

The hotel is very close to the 101, to UCSB, to beautiful Goleta State Beach, and not far from downtown Santa Barbara, but it's nevertheless a very quiet and peaceful place, with a central inner yard with a nice pool and palm trees. The rooms (actually suites) are huge and cozy. Personally, I missed a working desk - maybe people... More

They have a great "stay and play" package. The hotel took care of making our tee time at Sandpiper. When we arrived at Sandpiper to play all we did was give our name and that was it. We were good go. We did not need extra time to have breakfast as we ate at the hotel which included breakfast with... More
