Let's be up front - this is NOT a resort. If you want a resort experience, go somewhere else. This is a basic, clean, well managed hotel will very accomodating employees. A great place to sleep, grab a basic hot breakfast, and go do what you came to SB for with money left in your wallet because of this hotel's... More

Nice place, nice location. High priced. Friendly staff. This two hundred character minimum review length is a bit of a nuisance however. I am laconic in speech, simple in thinking. Have you folk not heard of Twitter??? This a one - night hotel review...and you want the Gettysburg Address??? A Congressional filibuster???

I stayed at this hotel as recommended my one of my colleagues and I was very happy with the accommodations. It's very close to Santa Barbara and is convenient to local attractions and Goleta. I plan to stay here in the future when my travels take me to the area. I would recommend it to leisure and business travelers.

I stay in Santa Barbara quite often as this is my 2nd child to graduate from there... I am disappointed I did not know about this awesome hotel before now! The rooms were quite comfortable and the FREE breakfast was superb! Besides the usual fruit, muffins, oatmeal etc. You also could make fresh waffles and the first day the hot... More

This hotel was awesome overall! Nothing negative that I can say at all. Would definitely stay here again when I am back in town to visit. Breakfast was also exceptional compared to all other hotels I have stayed in and I wish I could take one of their housekeepers home to freshen up my house! :)

While I'm a fan of Hampton as well as all the Hilton hotels, I feel the need to comment on a stay at the Goleta Hampton that was somewhat under par. My wife and I were in the Santa Barbara area for a training class she was attending, and booked a room for several nights at the Hampton as it... More

The staff was excellent. They helped get more items out during breakfast when needed. Also, every time we came into the hotel they were very pleasant and greet us. The location was great. It was close to many attractions. Across the street was a gluten free donuts shop that was on the show Diner,Drive-in and Dives. The donuts were great... More

I thought I booked the room directly with the hotel, but was later told by hotel front desk that it was thru Reservation Counter. Somehow, I was fooled by the search engine. I prepaid US$376 for a studio for one night, but when I checked into the hotel, I was given a standard room of a lower rate. When I... More

Stayed here one night in preparation for a business meeting the next day. Arrived late (~10:30 PM) and left right after (free) breakfast the next morning. Hampton's are my first choice when traveling on business (& pleasure). Always clean and comfortable, and with all the amenities needed.
