We stayed at the Goleta for two nights while attending The World of Pinot Noir event at Bacara, which is too rich for our blood (hmmm $600/night vs. $160 - you decide!). The Goleta was undergoing renovation, anticipating completion in time for the Summer season.
Rooms are small, adequate as long as you're not planning to hang out at the hotel. It's a motor inn; sleep, swim, take a shower and get out and about! Now a Kimpton property, it will stay pet-friendly, even after renovation, as are all of their hotels. I am hopeful that the renovation will include brightening of the rooms, as they are currently poorly lit and have dated furnishings.
We look forward to returning when traveling with our dogs. If going to events in downtown Santa Barbara, I'd stay downtown.
