New hotel. Clean, great staff, great amenities, quiet. Near airport. About 10 minutes from Downtown Santa Barbara. If you are looking for a great hotel that is convenient to Santa Barbara this is it. Not in the most beautiful location but if you are looking gut a great base for activities, it's great!

4 stars? For this place? Tiny pool, 70's interior in the lobby even though it has just been built, right by the airport so airplanes roar overhead regularly and the staff recommend the worst restaurant imaginable for a family lunch (Hollister Brewing Co 10 mins down the road). Staff are pleasant and polite but there is little charm here -... More

My husband took me away for my 55th birthday and when we arrived at the Goleta Courtyard we liked how quaint and personal everything was. We live in Las Vegas and had to leave after work so we didn't arrive until about 10pm. When we got out of the car there was a young man in a courtyard uniform who... More

We came here because of the Michael Jordan camp . We are very happy we chose this place. It is the only hotel that is near UCSB. When I say close I mean a 3 min drive. This hotel is near all kinds of restaurants and stores. The hotel itself is new and clean. My only reason for not giving... More

Beautiful hotel, fun and friendly staff. We came mid July with our family of four, and the Courtyard Mariott Goleta was the perfect fit for us. We loved the breakfast and how they supplied Starbucks coffee! Also, breakfast was served Ara reasonable time which was awesome. We took advantage of the easy to access shuttle for all of our dinner... More

They charged me twice. Once when I booked the hotel and once when I checked in. It took 4-6 phone calls, 3-4 emails, 2 failed faxes and one last angry call to get the issue resolved. They said it will take 3-4 business days to see my credit on my account. Let's see.

The rooms were of average size and very clean. The bathrooms are on the smaller side with little counter space but the toilet and shower tub were in great shape. Only thing missing from the room was an extra set of blankets and pillows. The noise level for a holiday weekend was very low. Our stay was very pleasant. The... More

The Courtyard in Goleta is convenient to 101 and also to UCSB. The lobby is notably nicer than most Courtyard hotels. The rooms are perfect, and the shower exceeds expectations (in fact is nicer than any I had in a full Marriott). What a lovely pool deck! Warm pool, hot tub, firepit, and plenty of towels. Their fitness center was... More

I'm a seasoned traveler! Never have I seen ants crawling up a headboard!!! At 11pm at night they moved us to a new room. That leads me to think they know they have a problem! It was not the room I had requested! I am beyond frustrated and pissed! They need to reimburse us for the night! Unfrickinbelievable!! Vacation should... More

Very nice, upscale-feeling hotel/resort. Visually appealing and an array of upgrades through the facility. We felt fairly "posh" staying here. Love the hot tub and fire pits. Gorgeous outside facilities as well Fantastic room - lots of space for my family of 4 to move around and fee relaxed. Some kind of mix-up with our credit card on Priceline, that... More
