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

Awesome family hotel. The courtyard and pool area is totally safe and beautiful for family to hang out. The hotel is very very clean. The bathrooms could use more places to hang towels/toiletries on the wall. There's a refrigerator which was awesome. We were able to use hotel dvd to watch movie. second floor rooms have great pool view. The... More

This hotel is less than a year old and conveniently located near UCSB and the Santa Barbara Airport. Although average for its price-range, it has nicely appointed rooms, spacious bathrooms, and very comfortable beds with inviting bright white duvet covers. First floor rooms open onto beautifully landscaped grounds and patio area, and each has its own table and 2 chairs... More

Good location, slightly off the beaten track, convenient for freeway 101, about 10 minutes North of Santa Barbara, Very Close to the airport, but it's a small airport, not too much traffic, so not intrusive. Staffs are very helpful, friendly and professional. The hotel is smoke free, it has a nice pool area. And a well-appointed fire pit sitting area.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Courtyard Marriott in Goleta. The rooms were very basic but very clean. The hotel decor was great and very modern. I would recommend a room on the 1st floor facing the pool. It comes with a great patio for relaxing. We would definitely stay there again when visiting Santa Barbara.... More

We took a trip with our 3 month old from San Francisco to San Diego at the end of April 2014 and booked at two Courtyards en route and this Courtyard in Goleta was superior. We stayed in a Junior Suite and brought our own travel crib. It is a very clean hotel with a stunning if not rustic lobby... More
