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

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
