Expecting out-of-town company for my daughter's baby shower, I called the Best of the Best, the South Coast Inn in Goleta, CA. We had the King Suite, which accommodated 4 ladies quite well, no one was running into each other. The room was well done, nothing to complain about. Breakfast was very good, except coming down a bit on the... More

This hotel is convenient to UCSB. It was clean and well kept. The landscaping was beautiful. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fresh and good. I would recommend this hotel for business travelers and for families.

I like the hotel and have stayed there 3 or 4 times. The lawns are nice and kept up. Breakfast is good and there is a variety to chose from as far as continental breakfasts go. The rooms are clean but could use some updating. The shower head is not great and as far as the pillows go, unless you... More

Clean and given nearness to hwy 101 quiet. The front desk was friendly. We stayed because we had to be at the airport by 5am. Our early departure precluded sampling the advertised breakfast. The hair dryer was one that barely dries and cuts off when overheated. Standard motel issue, but still annoying. Beds and pillows are excellent.

Had to catch an early flight out so stayed in Goleta. It was high season so all of the hotels apparently can command luxury hotel prices. At $180/night, I'm having a hard time justifying the price. First of all, it's an external room entrance like many of the hotels in Goleta. Second the room was clean but in need of... More

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for the reply! We appreciate the feedback. All of the local Santa Barbara/Goleta hotels do have an increase in price during the high seasons.

Stayed here with a friend and our teenager daughters while college shopping. We made our reservation close to the last minute and were lucky to find this place at a relatively reasonable rate (for the Santa Barbara area in mid-summer, anyway). Our room was very clean, which is my number one priority. It was also equipped with the necessary number... More

Spent 1 night and had an uneventful stay. Needed to stay in Santa Barbara area on a Friday night and most hotels were either full or required a two-night stay. Best Western allowed our one-night stay at a reasonable price. Our room was clean and they accommodated our request for a quiet, upper level end unit room which was nice.... More

We have had nothing but terrible experiences when travelling to Santa Barbara and this time around selected to go with something that had a good location for our business and hopefully value for our stay. Best Western delivered on both. The room was exactly what we were hoping for, spacious and clean. The location was perfect to make our meetings.... More

Booked a room here for three nights to use as a base for excursions in the Santa Barbara area. Room was a little small for our family of four but well kept.
