Lovely dinning area. You can eat inside but I enjoyed eating outside under the umbrellas. Nice place to swim, hot tubs and other desirable amenities. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The breakfast served was excellent. I would visit this place again if I went to Goleta.

We booked a king suite at this beautiful Goleta location. The grounds are well manicured with topiary carvings of shrubs and bushes. It was quiet and parking was very convenient. Staff was very friendly, rooms were clean and the bed was very comfortable. The pool/spa areas were well maintained and expansive. The breakfast had rotating food selections. Fresh ground and...

We wanted a reasonably priced hotel near the ocean, near great seafood restaurants, convenient to our Santa Barbara wedding activities. Also very close to Trader Joe's. Turned out better than we expected choice. I thought it was overpriced, since the place is a bit rundown on the exterior. But good, plentiful breakfast, helpful staff pointed us to where we wanted...

I work out of town and I've stayed at different hotels before. I have always enjoyed my stay at The South Coast Inn. I've made it my home away from home. The staff is great. The rooms are relaxing and the beds are comfy. The hotel is well kept and upgrades are always constant. The Gym, Pool and Jacuzzi are... More

Welcoming friendly staff and a great little town with uncrowded beaches to enjoy just north of Santa Barbara. We enjoyed a newly refurbished room which was beautifully done and a big improvement since our last stay. Great pool and hot tub nestled amongst the park like grounds.

Everything about the hotel was inviting. It has neat manicured grounds, pleasant staff, a great breakfast, clean rooms and a tranquil setting. The pool and hot tub area was large and protected. Nice!!

We were originally booked in the Sandmann Inn, which closed before we arrived - thus we were booked into the Best Western plus. When we arrived late in the evening our booking could at first not be found, due to the very short notice Expedia had given us. Luckily the Manager was very helpful and found our booking. We were...

The rooms are very nice and cozy, the bed was so comfortable I slept great. No outside noises or thin walls. The internet service turned on righ away, overall my stay there was pretty great. I will definitely stay there again.
