Wow, I loved this hotel. I recently stayed two nights and it was perfection. My first floor room opened onto the courtyard and it was very pleasant to sit there in the morning. The courtyard has a putting green, swimming pool and jacuzzi and a wonderful fire pit with comfortable seating around it. I sat and read by the fire... More

We had a room on the first floor, facing the courtyard. The bed was comfortable, and our shower/bathroom was nice and clean. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio every morning and afternoon, and taking a convenient stroll to the pool. The courtyard has an amazing setup. It is good for couples, families, and children. They have a nice pool/Jacuzzi... More

The hotel is fine. Room was clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. It is a few blocks from a huge shopping enter with Costco and other stores. The only complain is - there is no free breakfast. The rest of the Marriott chain provide free breakfast. I am a platinum member, but I am not going to stay another 50... More

Beautiful room and a friendly staff. The bed was so comfortable, I did not want to get out! The bathroom was modern and the shower was nice. My only complaint was the very old hairdryier that took forever.

Great option for the northern Santa Barbara area, about 10 miles north of downtown and very close to UCSB, as well as the bikepaths/beach trails just north of the University; easy on/off from 101 but not right next to it. Hotel is a very large 2-story building, arranged in a square around a nicely-landscaped courtyard with a pool, fire pits,... More

I first want to say that I have rated only two hotels as "excellent" and both of them were Marriot hotels. This courtyard hotel is beautiful and new, and extremely pleasant to stay in. We stayed in a junior suite, and the room was clean and furnished with nice furniture that made me feel at home. The bed is comfortable,... More
