Fairly new property. Very nice with a great lobby and decent food at The Bistro. Stayed in a second floor suite that was very comfortable and quiet. Close to UCSB and walking distance to some pretty good restaurants and movie theater. A little pricey.

Extremely comfortable beds. The room was large enough for a family of four. Huge bathroom! Great location for visiting UCSB, Would strongly recommend this hotel. Very friendly staff. The lobby area and food/wine area were very modern and clean.

Nice hotel with a great staff! Does not have free breakfast, but it does have a restaurant. Near PCH and UCSB. The Marketplace is nearby with restaurants and coffee shops. The room was nice. Only surprise is the airport is next door, and planes land at 6:30 in the morning.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The front desk staff are so nice and knowledgeable with directions etc. the rooms are spacious and so clean. It is about 5 minutes from the Santa Barbara Airport and in a great location next to many restaurants even within walking distance. It is 4 miles from the ocean. The only... More

Stayed here with the family. A typical courtyard, the room was clean and fairly close to highway 101. Was just what we needed after a long day of driving. Quick, comfortable and clean. Did not use any of the other services so that is the only reason for not giving a 5 star

We took the train from SFO to Santa Barbara and we were looking for a quick overnight stay. I was a bit surprised how much the rooms were in the area, but the location was perfect for us as it was close to the train station and the airport to pick up our rental car. The staff was very nice... More

This Courtyard by Marriott is pretty new and modern. We have stayed here a few times and really like it. They have a cute restaurant area/bar and a cozy lobby with fireplace. Rooms are nice and spacious. Staff is friendly. Nice pool, spa, and gym. Definitely a great hotel close to UCSB.

I have stayed here many times in the last 4 years and never paid so much for two nights. Almost $1000 for Sat and Sun. Let me be clear this is universal in college towns at special events times but doesn't make it any more palatable! I have always enjoyed my stay because I have become used to the Marriott... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and my bill was over $900 for the room only. It's the nicest hotel near UCSB but they really gouge the guests. It's loud if you face the soccer field like room #244 (view from this room attached) the restaurants/bistro bar is closed most of the day so don't plan on lunch on property. Hilton... More

Cannot say enough about the amenities, friendly staff and easy location for this graduation trip. Super comfortable and clean...a great place to rest after moving our son out of his college house...close to everything we could need. Hosted a grad dinner onsite and even though our party was only 15 we were treated like we were planning a party for... More
