We stayed here for one night to visit family. We were spending time in Buellton and Santa Barbara so this hotel was right in the middle of both which was very convenient. The hotel is updated and the room was very comfortable. The check in was very smooth and we were able to check in early which was nice! They... More

I really like this location: easy to get to from the SBA airport and near a shopping area, grocery store, movie theater, all with easy access. The room and bathroom were clean, and the property in general was well cared for. Kudos to the housekeeping staff. I secured a room rate that was supposed to include breakfast as part of... More

Great spot for a weekend getaway. New accommodations, comfortable rooms, good location, and helpful staff. Our front desk representative, Daniel was very helpful. Checked us in promptly, made dinner reservations at a nearby restaurant, and arranged for the Marriott shuttle to take us to and from dinner.

arrived into airport 1 hour late and after car rental closed. Called a few cab places with no luck. Called front desk and cab was there in less than 5 minutes! Nice quiet room- and the shuttle took me to work next day! Loved that I could go down get some fruit and a great cup of coffee for breakfast... More

We stayed one night at the Courtyard en route to Los Angeles, and it was a very good experience. The check-in was very efficient, and the room we got was extremely well cared for and clean. This includes the bathroom, which is always a top priority for us. All the furniture were in great shape, and the bed and pillow... More

rockstar staff and genuinely great service with heart. This place totally exceeded my needs. Special thanksto front desk personnel Daniel T. who hooked me up with directions to Goleta Pier and Beachside Cafe and greeted each evening upon my return to the hotel. Allie hooked me up with late check-out. Got some oatmeal and an Americano at the Bistro. Food... More

The service was excellent and I was treated wonderfully. I'd most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. It would be great for anyone vacationing, traveling for business or just a relaxing weekend.

Loved this atypical Courtyard. It's a large property close to the airport and UCSB. The property is huge and the rooms are modern and spacious. I arrived late and the front desk staff were very friendly and offered a great suggestion for dinner (Silvergreens delivery) as the Bistro was closed. Plenty of free parking. Check out was a breeze.

A typical beautiful courtyard marriott, very comfortable, nice bed. We heard small planes at a distance, did not bother us at all and several restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Close to UCSB. We noticed it required way too many marriott points for the location IMO. The night we stayed the price was a reasonable amount for the area but... More

I am a 30yr Marriott customer. Marriott rate this hotel a level 7, more like a 4. It sits one mile from the approach end of Santa Barbara's airport, not good for sleeping. Marriott charge 35000 pts per night with no Platinum facilities !! No beach nearby, no good restaurants.
