I stayed at this hotel for two weeks whilst visiting Goleta on business. Usually I stay at the Harbour View, but on this occasion I wanted to be closer to the office on South Los Carneros. It is very close to the airport and they have an airport shuttle, but you may need to call the hotel from the airport to arrange a pick up as their vehicle wasn't there when my flight came in and I didn't have their number to hand.
The room was spacious, clean and had a fridge, coffee maker, iron and hairdryer. I am used to most hotels having an in-room safe/security box so was disappointed that they only offer safety boxes at reception. I had a room overlooking the soccer field and have to say that I did not hear any noise from the daily games being played there. Despite being under the flight path for the airport there was very little noise from the planes either.
The little bistro was more than adequate for me, I prefer to grab something light in the evening and the breakfast options were good.
The staff were very attentive, friendly and polite, offering advice on where to go, good restaurants, etc.
The only negative aspect is the slamming doors. I understand that the hotel wants doors to close firmly, but other hotels I have stayed in have managed to achieve that successfully without the bang.
All in all I would highly recommend.
