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!!

Pros: Has air conditioning, mini fridge, and microwave. Has a pool and hot tub. Free continental breakfast (yogurt, breakfast, toast, coffee, pre-made frittatas). Free wi-fi and easy parking. 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...

We've stayed at many hotels and usually the staff welcomes us with a smile and show true hospitality. I am sorry I can't say the same for Best Western Goleta. Please work on that Cali charm. On the positive side, we enjoyed the pool areas very much and the breakfast was a nice touch. The room was outdated but clean... More

We have stayed at this hotel on 4 occasions. It is very close to the UCSB campus and walking distance to restaurants. The staff is very nice and friendly, the rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is ok, yogurt, fruit, muffins, coffee and juice. There is a good coffee place and a Blenders, juice bar... More

One of the best hotel values in Santa Barbara and I have stayed in over a dozen others to compare. Well manicured landscape with pool and spa, very clean, comfortable rooms and a great free breakfast experience. Let's don't forget air conditioning as this is a must for me.
