Went there to visit UCSB. Newer, very clean hotel. You can tell the new hotels because you don't slide your room key, just touch it to the door pad. Nice pool, putting green and the mini restaurant serves Starbucks coffee. Close to many restaurants. Daniel Tolliver was extremely helpful during my stay.

I had stayed here many times since the hotel opened a few years ago and I used the phone app to check in. The location is is the best for proximity to UCSB, and the prices reflect that convenience. UC is building a huge dorm complex just down the street, so this hotel will reap even more from parents' and... More

This Courtyard is around 3 years old so the rooms are up to date and very clean. The front desk staff is very nice and welcoming (thank you Jodi and Jonathan). This was a busy weekend with UCSB graduations and move outs but the hotel staff was very organized and helpful. Thanks also for the late checkout.

Enjoyed staying at this beautiful new hotel. The common areas in the hotel are very nice and rooms are comfortable. My room was a bit small and the closet was tiny. I could barely get a few shirts and pants in the closet. I slept great, the room was quite and bed very comfortable. The wifi here is great. You... More

New hotel well furnished and clean. Beautiful lounge and outdoor area with pool and putting green. Expensive for a courtyard. Service impersonal. Internet ok during u stay. Very convenient to highway 101 and downtown Santa Barbara, easy to get to work.

During a wine tasting/birthday weekend with friends, we stayed at the Courtyard Marriott. The accommodations were clean, roomy and comfortable. The front desk was especially helpful with dinner recommendations. The workout room is large with free weights, elliptical machines, treadmills and space for stretching. Overall, our stay was a fantastic experience, and I would recommend this place to my friends... More

I don't usually stay at Marriott properties, maybe because I imagine them to be generic and drab. This property is exactly that. Very corporate looking and soulless. Great for people just looking for a place to stay, but rather sad for anyone hoping to actually enjoy being in a place. For $250 a night in the Santa Barbara area, I... More

If you need to access the internet especially for business purposes, where acceptable speeds and connectivity are needed, this is the wrong property. Otherwise the hotel seemed fine but is a considerable distance from downtown Santa Barbara.

On our travels down the coast visiting colleges we stayed at the Courtyard Marriott. We were greeted by a very nice front desk staff who suggested an excellent restaurant on the beach for our dinner. The hotel was quiet and easy to navigate. Our room was clean, new and very nice. We would stay again for sure!
