Very nice place - rooms are spacious and quiet, clean. Location is also good - on map it looks like next to a freeway, but in fact it is not a freeway but a freeway entrance with low traffic. Hotel is isolated from a road by a number of big trees, so this is very quiet place. They have a... More

This was a good hotel in lovely grounds. Our room was a suite so lots of space with a separate lounge and patio overlooking the pool. Although it was Memorial Day weekend which made the breakfast room busy the hotel and room were quiet. Make sure you are aware that Goleta where this hotel is situated is about a 20... More

I stayed to be close to my work. It's an nice classic Santa Barbara ranchero type hotel. They serve a nice buffet breakfast. The property is very esthetic ally pleasing and semi quiet even though it's close to the freeway. For convenience to being centrally located, it's a good choice.

We went there for a weekend getaway, the main purpose was to relax without having to leave the property. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite on the first floor, right next to the pool. The suite had a mini-fridge and a microwave was provided on request. The stay includes complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast, which was not only satisfying but really delicious.... More

We stayed here for the first time last week and will now make this our go-to hotel for trips to Santa Barbara! The property is beautiful and the historic house/museum was such an unexpected surprise. We paid a little extra for a deluxe king suite overlooking the pool and it was well worth it! This was the most comfortable hotel... More
