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.

As a business traveler I see more than my fair share of Courtyard properties. Not only does this location have spacious, updated rooms but the pool and lounge areas were large enough to accommodate many guests. The fire pits were loaded with plenty of comfortable seating areas that gave my wife and I the opportunity to relax have a glass... More

We booked a room block at this hotel for our wedding in Goleta in September 2013. The entire Marriott group reservations team took very good care of us, specifically Kari Ambrosius. While I didn't stay at the hotel, I toured it extensively before signing the room block. It was without question one of the nicer Courtyard Marriotts I've seen. It... More

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.
