We have stayed in lots of Best Western Hotels and this was a pretty good one, not as elegant or fancy as some but did what it said on the tin so to speak. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet. The pool was lovely and we spent time relaxing in the late afternoon sunshine. One disappointing factor was the... More

Thank you for reviewing our property. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed our pool area and our guestrooms. Unfortunately, sometimes you can hear some noise from the freeway when you're in the courtyard, so I understand how that can be disappointing. Thank you again for your review and I hope you will stay with us again. Sincerely, Marissa More

This hotel is a good stay. I found it clean, quiet, and safe, Nice scenic area right off of main road that is close to everything within 10-15 minute drive. Room is spacious enough with king size bed and comfortable soft linens. Breakfast is included which is a plus considering cost and its average, but convenient. However, within less than... More

The location was perfect for me. Close to the airport and UCSB. There are restaurants and stores very close to the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. Everything worked well and free Wi-Fi didn't have any issues. Breakfast was normal for this kind of property. There was a nice variety. The egg (omelet... More

This is a standard, well-run hotel. Staff is good, rooms are clean. Well located in Goleta. Rooms facing the pool and courtyard are better than those facing the exterior. Decent breakfast. Nothing fancy here, but just fine.

The room configuration is very awkward. A chair is always in the way. It makes it difficult to move, read, visit, watch TV etc. We liked everything else about the hotel and staff, but that one discomfort colored our stay in a very negative way.

This hotel was very nice. Its garden setting together with its front appeal was the perfect setting for their well kept rooms. Breakfast was sumptuous, 24 hour espresso machine, pool with spa. That said, try it once you visit Santa Barbara.

We stayed here for one night on a mini-vacation to Ventura and Santa Barbara. First, the positives--pleasant and helpful staff, quirky topiary, nice pool and grounds, quiet rooms, and an amazing and varied breakfast (they even had scones and Stash tea). Location was also convenient as the hotel is in walking distance of several restaurants and shopping centers. But honestly,... More

We stayed here many times while our son attended UC Santa Barbara. It became our "base camp" for visiting him as it's just minutes from the UCSB campus. It's also an easy drive to all the sites in very nearby Santa Barbara, but less expensive and quieter than places in Santa Barbara where we stayed a couple of times. Parking... More
