Have stayed here numerous times for business and pleasure. No surprises always a clean comfortable Hotel. Very friendly and professional staff. Good value in Santa Barbara area, close to airport and attractions. Usually stay for business, exactly what a business traveler needs.

Sorry to say our experience wasn't that good! We discovered the toilet blocked - just before going out to dinner ! Rang the desk.. Yes they could move us to a different room ( noisier road side!) instead they offered a plunger - which I had to go and get, as there was only one person on the desk!! When... More

Normally I book my reservations online but I had trouble with the Best Western website (turns out I had 2 accounts and mixed up the login info) I called the company itself and booked through them. I was able to snag the manager's special and use a $25.00 Best Western Travel Card. How I got the card, I have no... More

In an area with a lot of hotels most of which are expensive and many are overpriced the South Coast Inn in Goleta is well located and is an excellent value in all aspects. It is well maintained with all the services one would expect and more. The new room decor is exceptional with staff and service excellent.

It is a nice and comfortable hotel. Shopping is very easy because you can walk to the nearby shopping mall. Wi-Fi is available in the guest room without any charge but the speed and the signal strength is not satisfactory. I do hope that they will be improved in the near future. In conclusion, this hotel would be one of... More

Lots of meal choices very close by too. But darn it! Why is there a blinking smoke alarm light on the darn wall!!! All their rooms have it and it's unbelievably... More

The beds were extremely comfortable. They were in the process of remodeling the rooms, ours had not been done yet, but other family members rooms were, and they were really nice. The grounds were beautiful, we had a very pleasant stay.

We knew there was a renovation going on, but the front desk told me they were only renovating 3 rooms at a time, so it would not be noisy or disrupt our stay, so I booked it. Turns out we were placed directly above one of the rooms being renovated! We were woken up at 7:30am to hammering, sawing, and... More

Best Western is the cleanest, most reasonably price hotel in the area. The breakfast is plentiful, but it doesn't change selections. My room was quiet and clean. The staff is always polite. I like the airport pick up service.
