Two parts to this review: 1) Marriott customer service and 2) the property 1) i had made a 2 night rez using Reward points at this property for a MLK weekend visit to SB for my wife's bday. A week or so ahead of our rez my wife decided she would prefer to stay only one night. No problem except...

Great place to stay. Family oriented. 12 to 14 year old kids REALLY loved the swimming pool. Helpful staff. Nearby (5-10 minute walks) for restaurants/shopping in strip malls. (Kmart, local diner type places with GREAT service also)

Bear in mind this is in Goleta and near UCSB, not that close to Santa Barbara. Beautiful hotel, my favorite Courtyard of all. Great pool, firepits, service. Convenient parking. Near restaurants. The rooms are very clean and there is a nice lobby and great service as well.

In a town where you can't buy a starter home under $500, decent hotels under $300 on a regular basis are hard to find. The Courtyard is close to Goleta businesses, a short hop to SB downtown, and minutes from UCSB. Even for a corporate hotel, it is charming (particularly the courtyard), the staff always remembered my name, and it's...

Everything was fine here except for the mattresses and, of course, that's not an insignificant factor when choosing a place of lodging. We've been on the road 1-1/2 weeks, staying in quite a few different hotels, and these are the worst mattresses we've experienced. They seem like they should have been replaced long ago. If that's not the problem, then...

Marriott is always well managed. Great service, rooms are clean, great breakfast and they are always greatly located. Marriott is has a great room configuration, nice use of space and interior. However, they could offer us rooms with two beds.

Close to ucsb , easy freeway access and has a nice shopping mall nearby with coffee, restaurants. Other nice coffee shops nearby as well Lobby is spacious and business center roomy with fast computers and printers. Bed was not very comfy (needs to be replaced I think). And a few pillows didn't have pillow covers.

Requested 1 king, got two queens... No room upgrades for a 4 year platinum.... No breakfast coupon for the lousy bistro..... This place stinks. Drive 30 miles further up north to the Marriott in Buellton. That is only a 3 star. This place blows.

Nice hotel and new but location not close to Santa Barbara attractions bit it is close to the airport. They do have a shuttle but they do not shuttle before 7:00 AM which can be a problem if you have an early flight.

I was the co-organizer of a reunion of nearly 90 friends who graduated from nearby UCSB in the 1960-70s. It was a 3-day event that with extensive support from the Hotel's local management became an occasion we all treasured and will remember forever. I and my co-organizer had no experience in planning such an event so we could not have...
