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.

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.

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.
