This hotel is located about two miles from the UCSB campus. It is a good, less expensive alternative to staying in Santa Barbara. It was clean and the staff was friendly. The breakfast was typical. It is on a commercial street with some shopping and restaurants. The grounds are very well kept.

This hotel has beautiful manicured gardens and pool area. Everything was clean and kept up well. Employees were all very helpful and very friendly. What more could you ask for..Usually you have to go to a larger hotel to get this level of perfection. Everything about this property speaks efficient and well run.

Stayed here on business; close to highway, many near by places to eat. Grounds are very clean and very nice courtyard. Room is very spacious. Flat screen TV, refrigerator, microwave, DVD player.

Nice property and well maintained. Room was well done although bathroom needs some cleaning (caulking and tile cleanup). Plenty of parking and very clean. Large area for breakfast. Many choices but could use an updating. Nice patio area outdoors to enjoy. Nice pool area

What a great hotel! Had a fantastic stay here, everything from check-in, to the beauty of the room. Well appointed bathrooms, and the grounds are stunning. They really go out of their way to make the gardens and pool very nice. Great location in Goleta, just a mile or so from the beach.

The staff was also friendly and helpful. The room, a bit small for 3, but with comfortable beds. Having a parking spot in front of the room was very convenient for us. Took a lot of pictures of the topiaries and well-manicured lawn. One was shaped like a dinosaur guarding the pool fence. :)

Rooms were nice and clean. The only complaint was no microwave or refrigerator in the room, though the confirmation indicated it. But got by without it. Beds were extremely comfortable, and the grounds were really beautiful. Enjoyed exploring and spending time in the courtyard. Staff was very nice.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property, it's always nice to hear positive reviews from our guests. All of our rooms do have a microwave and a mini fridge, the microwave is in the armoire and the fridge is located underneath the bathroom sink. So they are hidden, but they are there. Thank you again... More

Saw the ground crew disinfecting the concrete around the pool. Have not seen that at a 5 star resort. The breakfast room was delightful! The entrée needed some work. When there was a problem with our room, they upgraded us to a suite. Great location. Would stay there again!!

Room size is average. Beds are ok. Shower pressure is good. Cheaper than Santa Barbara, even though it was still $200/ night for basic accommodations. Cons: External corridors so ambient noise can...
