We stayed here for our short Santa Barbara trip and I honestly wish we would've stayed a little longer in order to really enjoy this gem of a hotel. It's beautiful, has a nice breakfast lounge, the BEST breakfast you'll find anywhere comparable, a stunning pool area and the staff are incredibly helpful.

The staff at the Marriott Courtyard was excellent! The room and grounds were very nice. The suite we stayed in was very spacious and it felt more like staying in a condo than a hotel. Thank you for making our stay comfortable and enjoyable!

My friends and I stayed here the last night of our CA vacation so we would be close to the Santa Barbara Airport. We were expecting just your average "close to the airport" kind of hotel, and were really pleasantly surprised. The rooms were spotless, the grounds were lovely, the hotel staff were welcoming, and the breakfast selection was great.

Excellent location with beautiful landscaped grounds. The rooms are clean with very comfy beds. Breakfast has a few hot choices, but does have a complete array of cereals, toast, oatmeal, hard bolied eggs, yogurt and pastries. All of this is for a reasonable price for Santa Barbara. We always stay here when we visit SB.
