This hotel is off a major road and is two miles from Goleta Beach. However, it is surprisingly nice. Its location is ideal next to airport and UCSB (no more than 5 minutes by car). Santa Barbara is a 15-minute drive. The grounds are attractive, and our room, which faced the pool and hot tub, was quiet. Spacious, comfy rooms and great, free, cooked-to-order breakfast. We will be back.
