We stopped here on the first night of our US roadtrip so were exhausted after a very long flight from the UK and the drive out of LA. We were only here one night so did not get time to use the pool but it looked lovely as did the gardens. The breakfast was good, the staff friendly, the room... More

This three star review reflects that this is just exactly the place we needed to find without breaking the bank. Everything was very clean and well maintained (although like many BWs, a refurbished older property). Staff is courteous and even though the place was full due to much activity at UCSB, with a spirited pool party in the evening, our... More

What a nice surprise this hotel was! The grounds were beautifully groomed and maintained. The staff was very friendly and the hot breakfast was a nice change from just having cold options. If we are ever in the Santa Barbara area we'd definitely stay here again! Nicest Best Western yet!

I've stayed at this location several times in the past decade, and I'm pleased to see that some renovations are starting. The front desk staff are incredibly pleasant and helpful, but the rest of the property is looking a little tired. Rooms are always clean, comfortable, and reasonably sized, but the furniture and fixtures are now a bit run down.... More

The room was an average hotel room, but the grounds were beautiful and the location was good. They also serve a good breakfast. Friendly staff. No elevator, so get a ground floor room if you don't want to carry luggage upstairs.

This is usually our "go to"hotel when visiting our son at UCSB. The rooms are definitely showing signs of age but I think they will be going under a renovation soon. The internet is terrible!!!! Other then that it's in a great location.

The Best Western PLUS South Coast Inn, Goleta, California was a great plus to a wonderful family weekend! We enjoyed the breakfast, jacuzzi and pool along with the free wifi and 24 hour coffee/hot chocolate service in the lobby. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our rooms were very well maintained and comfortable!

Check in & check out both great. The grounds are well mantained. The room key is very cool. Everything about the room was fine. The breakfast really has it all. I can't find anything bad to say about this hotel.
