“Business Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

I found this hotel on trip advisor and was very pleased with it. I got there very early in the morning and knew than their check in was 3pm. I arrived at 9:30 am and they were able to give me a room right away this was great. The room was very large and clean. The staff was very nice and help all they could. I arrived early enough that they still had breakfast being served. The food was very good the staff in the dining area were very nice. The hotel is very close to the airport which is great.

Very friendly staff. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was typical Hampton breakfast. Five minutes from airport. Would return if I needed to be close to airport again. I'm sure there is fancier in SB, but this met our needs just fine. Only gripe is price and occupancy tax.

Came here at the last minute after I was grossed out at the Best Western in Santa Barbara. Definitely a step up from BW, but had a number of problems and the staff did not seem either well-trained or capable of handling them. They included problems printing something out on my USB - the girl at check in said she didn't know anything about the business center, but after about 20 minutes I figured it out myself. Don't you think they should know where to put a USB to print - seems basic part of the job to me. Second, humidity in the room was almost unbearable, and A/C worked intermittently. I never did figure out how it worked, and just sweated it out. Lastly, when you go online in virtually any Hampton, no matter what you type into the address bar, it always defaults to the Hampton home page. This has happened before in other Hamptons and really needs to be changed. The girl at the front desk (a different one), had me use the computer at check-in to print my documents; it really shouldn't be this hard. Not an overly welcoming hotel, and area is difficult to get to due to the town being dissected by the main thruway. Close to highway, but did not feel safe in this area.

Room Tip: Get one in the back of the hotel.

I just stayed for one night this past week. The hotel is well-situated (just off the freeway) and is of the standard, high-quality Hampton Inn variety. Room was impeccably clean. Breakfast was quite good. Front desk staff was helpful and friendly. It's everything I've come to expect from Hampton Inns.

Room Tip: Personally, I'd recommend a room facing the outside/parking lot versus the inside/swimming pool...

If you are looking for a family hotel and great location to the beach, restaurants and shopping you can't go wrong with this hotel. This Hampton in Goleta has the friendliest staff in all of the west coast. Great hotel to relax and enjoy the Santa Barbara scenery.

Recently speny one night while traveling through California. This was by far the friendliest, most hospitable hotels I havestayed in. Extremely clean. It looks like a new hotel, but is actually several years old.

Not worth the money. Go stay in Santa Barbara for the money. I've stayed at many across the US. Worst location I've been too yet. Spent too much for a lousy hotel. The lobby is old, the breakfast area is terrible, food selection and quality are bad. Room was dirty, bathroom dirty. I felt I got ripped off for $260 a night.
