We choose the hotel, because it was out last stop to the LAX airport (which is a 2-3 hour drive, depending on traffic) and had the benefit of being close to a family friendly beach (8 minutes by car). The hotel itself has only 2-room-suites (spacious living room and bedroom) and a garden / pool area. The staff was very... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night during our vacation. The room itself was very big and clean. Our room was facing the parking area in the ground level, which is not that fun. So try to get a room facing the pool which will give you a nicer view. We arrived quite late in the evening (driving all... More

Our stay here was marred by our check-in. Having booked a specific suite type 10 months in advance, we were given a different suite from the one we had booked. When we spotted and raised this with the staff member concerned, he said that the notes attached to our room said that the AC unit was broken and there were... More

This hotel is totally overpriced. The room is clean but .... When I first checked in, I asked for a quieter room and the reception gave me a room and upon driving to the room I noticed it was facing the freeway so I went back and asked to change, which she did. If you are like me who need... More

I chose Pacifica Suites for a spot to stay for my bachelorette party weekend. We had 3 rooms between nine girls and it was perfect! Each room had plenty of space and everyone was pretty comfortable (I mean, a sofa bed is a sofa bed, after all). The made-to-order breakfast was a great touch. When I'm back in the area,... More

We stayed just north of Santa Barbara for a wedding in Goleta, California. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Our expectations based upon reviews and website were met and mostly exceeded our expectations. The bed was very comfortable and plenty of pillows.

We had such a pleasant stay from start to finish. Kelcy, the front desk agent who checked us in, was beyond accommodating and so nice. We checked in quite late in the evening, but there was absolutely no hassle and we immediately felt right at home. The breakfast was wonderful and I loved how it was made to order. The... More

Didn't even look at the pictures when I booked this place. I just read the reviews and booked it. I didn't know it would be so quaint with pretty grounds (I guess I didn't read all the reviews).
