We needed a place to say near Santa Barbara for a couple of nights and found this through a friend. The price was more reasonable than in town for similar accommodations.The grounds are gorgeous and make you feel like you are right in SB. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. The cook to order breakfast was a great bonus... More

Easy access to freeway, Goleta and UCSB but disappointing to stay in such a dingy, tired, old room, especially with an upgrade arranged by my travel agent. If I got an upgrade, oh my! Went to take a shower and there was hair on the tub, and it wasn't mine. Makes one wonder how well the bathroom was cleaned. On... More

Stayed in an upstairs suite for two nights with my family of three. Two adults and one child. Very comfortable and spacious. The grounds were beautiful with amazing mature trees. The breakfast was well done with the benefit of actually being able to make personal requests each day all included in the room price. Other family members stayed in additional... More

This hotel is not located in Santa Barbara, but quieter Goleta, with easy access to freeway. All rooms are suites, with sofa, fridge, and coffee maker. Note: double beds means 2 full, instead of queen beds. Beautiful ground, ask for rooms facing courtyard, instead of parking lot. Breakfast is made to order with choices listed on paper provided at check... More

I stayed for one night with my two children and the kind suite was great - spacious and comfortable. We had a problem with one of the TVs and the staff went out of their way to fish a solution - which they did. We slept well and had a good breakfast. I recommend a ground floor room if you... More

I can't believe I paid about the same price for this hotel as Motel 6(from UCSB move in weekend). I guess winter is much cheaper than summer. Up sides: Nice hotel with free wifi and excellent hot breakfast. In room coffee machine is so cool. Cookies in the afternoon also tasted great! Down sides: 1)double beds instead of queen beds...

We stayed four nights with family and the suites were comfortable and children-friendly. The room had a refrigerator and a coffee machine but no other facilities for preparing a snack. However the front desk was very accommodating and provided cutlery, glasses and plates. The complimentary breakfast was very good but the breakfast area gets very crowded at about 9am. The... More

It's really hard to find a hotel in Santa Barbara that seems like good value, but this is it. It is not right on the beach, but only a 5-10 minute drive away, and that's the difference between ridiculously overpriced and reasonable. We had a two-room suite for a family of four, which was really comfortable, with great beds, in-room... More

The hotel itself is located in a quiet area with manicured common areas. The staff is welcoming and very friendly. The issue I had was with the room. It was dingy and dirty. It was five of us so we had to use the sleeper sofa. When we pulled it out a stale muffin fell out of it. Then the... More

The hotel is well-situated in Goleta, which is attractive as a quiet place to enjoy the ocean and nearby butterfly preserve. The hotel offers an excellent cooked-to-order breakfast, spacious rooms, and is clean and modern. The service at the front desk was rather unorganized, however. I would recommend the place strongly for families with kids, but for couples or single... More
