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

I always cringe when it is time to visit Santa Barbara because hotels are all so overpriced. This one you can sometimes get a decent price. This time of course was not one of those times. I was told that the Ramada and Best Western in Carpenteria are decent places and values, so maybe check those out. When you are... More

I stayed at the hotel with a group and we had received a group rate. The hotel is located in what I think they call the old town Goleta area. I would prefer to stay in a newer area but the hotel was excellent. The staff was very friendly and accommodating upon check-in and arrival. The room was excellent with... More

This hotel was excellent all the way around. There was an in-room fridge, microwave, hair dryer, and free wireless (and wired) internet. The free breakfast was excellent and included fruit, eggs, waffles, bagels, and just about anything else anyone would want. Checkout was easy and the staff was very friendly. For business trips or families this hotel is worth staying... More

Pretty much what you expect from a Hampton Inn though this one is not as nice as some. Looks like updates were undercut a bit. Stiil, if it's clean and the bed is comfortable, that's all I need for a one night stay.

WE have stayed at the Hampton quite a few times, we've tried other hotels in Santa Barbara, but always return to the Hampton. It accommodates my family visits very much with its cleanliness, staff, rates, great rooms, and great complimentary breakfast.

We have stayed here every year for the holidays since the hotel opened. It never disappoints. The staff is very caring and friendly. The hotel remains in great condition. My grandsons love the breakfast. See you for Christmas 2015.

This hotel is very functional, clean and a good value. Appropriate for those who are independent and don't require a great deal of service from hotel staff. Pool was very nice though small. Hotel is located near the airport and highway entrance. Minutes from UCSB. There is a market nearby as well as a 7-11 and a hamburger stand. Also... More

Visiting UCSB. Great convenient location. Super friendly, attentive staff. Great breakfast and not bad coffee. Outdoor pool, hot tub were fine: clean, well kept. Christmas carols playing pool side, softly. Just a nice touch :-) Beds were soft, I brought my own pillow but those provided were fine. Walls are thin, but we didn't have any neighbors, so no issues.... More
