This little gem is really exquisite. The suites are spacious, and the all-important bed so comfortable I looked for the brand so I could buy one. It also includes a made-to-order breakfast in a cute little cafe. I will be back when in the Santa Barbara area.

Stayed here one night on business. Room was very large and clean. Very nice reception in the evening with free wine, beer and appetizers. Cooked to order free breakfast in the morning. What more could you want?

At the age of 76, I've done a lot of traveling and I'm very discriminating about service. Seldom do I encounter the level of superiority that I enjoyed for a week at Pacifica Suites. Allow me to post one small example: The toilet in our one bedroom deluxe suite was slow to flush. Staff appeared within half an hour. Repeat...

I love the property and the staff. The bed is comfortable, the rooms are clean. It is rare to have a separate bedroom, I always feel like I am staying in a suite. The staff knows my face or name and always is courteous and wonderful. Breakfast is so good and so much to choose from. My only two negatives-...

I love Pacifica Suites! My family and I have stayed there 3-4 times over the past year since my son started attending UCSB. Since my son goes to school and lives in Goleta, Pacifica Suites is conveniently close to the airport and where he lives. It took less than 30 minutes to leave the hotel, drop him at his dorm...

Santa Barbara/Goleta is a favorite vacation destination for us and with four kids it has been difficult to find a hotel that accommodates us all so well. Until now! We greatly enjoyed our 4 night stay! The suites were spacious and we all had comfortable beds to sleep on, TVs in both rooms, internet connection kept us all connected on...

I spent a couple of nights here with my wife after a business trip. The hotel is about 9-10 miles from the action in Santa Barbara and is easily accessible to the highway. The rooms are nice and clean and included a separate bedroom and living room. Our rooms faced the highway and you could hear the faint sound of...

We would highly recommend this hotel for a comfortable stay and would like to stay there again. The room was almost like a small apartment, very clean and the bed was mega nice.

Suite was a very nice surprise.iving room.isabout 15x18 and bedroom is about 12x15. Nice size overall. Free wifi, breakfast included. City of Goleta is about two blocks away and does have a variety of places to eat. Or you're maybe 10-15 minutes from Santa Barbara and they have many many places to eat, beach, wharf, Old Mission and other attractions....

This is a hidden gem. The rooms are not expensive, they are large, beds are very comfortable, breakfast made to order every morning. We love it here. The trees give it a hidden atmosphere and a tranquil feel. The staff us friendly. The hotel is pet friendly as well. Close to ucsb which is convenient for visiting our daughter.
