Lovely grounds, nice staff, but the rooms need a little modernization. Things just seemed kind of tired. The breakfast was nicely presented and quite good for a hotel buffet. I would recommend it because it was a good value for the area.

Very restful sleep in a nicely landscape area. The breakfast was good - and Sofie and I felt very happy here! We liked all the date palms and the beautiful way everything is cared for. It was like being in a park - magical. My only complaint is that the pillows were so damn big. I like a pillow no... More

Stayed for one night one way to Monterey. Lovely staff at check in and the kids loved the warm cookies at reception. Room was fine - beds comfy, water hot and it was pretty clean. Free breakfast was good - we sat outside in the sun and ate (bagels, toast, bacon, frittata, cereal, tea and coffee, muffins. There was a... More

Our two night stay here was enjoyable. The grounds/gardens are very inviting. The rooms are comfortable, albeit a little narrow. The breakfast area offers more than most "free breakfast" motels. Rather than just the normal scrambled eggs, they had pre-prepared omelets and frittatas. They have a coffee machine that will prepare lattes, mochas etc. besides the normal coffee servers. The...

I have stayed at this property many times and I put my family and friends up here as well. It is close to many restaurants, gas, banks, shops all within walking distance. The staff takes great care to meet the visitor needs. I recommend it wholeheartedly. Everyone in my group exclaims about the great beds. Grounds, despite drout, are beautiful.

It was a very nice hotel. The rate was very high, and it was during the off-season so it should have been much lower. The rooms are very modern. The breakfast was very good. The Jacuzzi was great because it was very hot. Many hotels do not heat their water properly.

Some one disconnected one of the heater units prior to our arrival .There are two controls which made it confusing. Turns out , one of the two units was disconnected according to the maintenance person that came the second time

This property was a pleasant surprise! The grounds were like a garden! Room was excellent, up to date décor and great breakfast, friendly people. One of the best of the Best Western Plus properties we have found. Convenient to Santa Barbara without the extra prices associated with that city. Would recommend to any traveler.

The rooms are a bit small but the service is fine. Breakfast is pretty good and included in the price. The grounds and the pool are always very well kept. This is a good location if you are doing business in Goleta or Santa Barbara

Check-in was a breeze. The room was spotlessly clean with a whisper-quiet AC/Heating unit, and one of the most efficient air exchange systems of all our hotel experiences. There was ample space and good lighting at the vanity. The water pressure was strong, and the water could get scalding hot. The towels brought back pleasant memories of an earlier stay,... More
