We stayed here for our anniversary weekend on our way to Santa Barbara. When we arrived the hotel gave us flowers and a gift basket. We loved our suite. It was spacious with a bedroom, living room, kitchenette and large bathroom. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel also had very easy access to the freeway.

Conveniently close to UCSB, but the hotel is unfortunately substandard. Gloomy, drab room, noisy AC, and disgusting odor. Seems to cater to college sports teams; not so great for the rest of us. We won't stay here again.

This was one of my favorite Hilton brand hotels, but things here have really gone downhill in the last year. I agree not worth the price when you can stay at the Fess Parker (on the ocean) for the same price. I am here at least once a month and was always impressed with the staff and the hotel overall....

Stayed over the 3 day valentine's weekend and the place was booked solid with 3 sports teams. Meaning, people in the hot tub late at night. People out at the pool early in the morning, like 8:00am. And the staff couldn't keep the breakfast area stocked fast enough. Hilton says this is a reward category 7. Meaning, we spent 50,000... More

Good location to visit UCSB and nice clean rooms. Breakfast included was great. The price is a drawback, but seems the area market commands that $ level. For the price, next time I may go to Santa Barbara for the restaurants and all and drive a little to UCSB.

I am in Goleta once a month for business. Goleta isn't exactly blessed with a plethora of great hotels, and the Hampton Inn has been consistently good. Clean rooms, a pool, and right on Hollister. The downside is you will likely be getting in a car to eat dinner. The staff is very helpful, but lately the hotel has been... More

We spent three nights at this hotel and slept well each night and the breakfast each morning was very good for a complimentary hotel buffet. It is easy to get to from the airport and freeway, but otherwise it is sandwiched between a car dealership and a primary school on a busy road with not much to recommend regarding the... More

when we go on a trip, we expect everything to go perfect with no room for error. well we had a small problem with our room that couldn't be foreseen by the staff. I made mention of the problem to the cleaning staff. They went to the front desk and had the manager come and handle it personally. It didn't... More
