We stayed here while visiting our daughter who is attending UC Santa Barbara. It was Veteran's day weekend so we stayed Saturday and Sunday night. The grounds are lovely with a clean pool and lots of outdoor seating and lounging facilities. The breakfast, which is included, consisted of a variety of breads, hot and cold cereal, juice, coffee, fruit, meat... More

Best Western's South Coast Inn was the perfect place for us to stay when visiting with family who live in Hope Ranch. The hotel's location was ideal, of course, and its comfort and pleasant aesthetics also provided an excellent recovery for us from our cross-continent travel. My wife praised the bed quality, which was very important to her. We all... More

Pleasantly surprised with property. The lobby is very inviting and the garden/pool areas are immaculate. Service staff was extremely helpful and the hotel provided a nice breakfast for our large group. We'll plan on coming back next year for our annual trip to Goleta!

We attend an annual event held at UCSB and this hotel is in a great location. The grounds are beautiful, the breakfast room is large and light and the staff friendly. However, we booked a room with one queen bed not knowing the bed is actually a murphy bed which is not as comfortable as the usual beds in a... More

We stayed one night as a cheaper alternative to staying in central Santa Barbara. The hotel is on a fairly busy road and you could hear the noise from the trains late in the evening. The room was of a good standard, but a bit worn around the edges and old fashioned in places. I think the hotel is currently... More

Starting with the clerk, he was uncaring that my wife is disabled and made us walk much further than necassary. Then the room was very small in comparison with other hotels but they still charged top dollar and wanted 50,000.00 points for a room. On to Breakfast, It sucked. The omelletes were old and cold, no waffle machine just cold... More
