Had a great stay with my wife. The staff was awesome and super nice. Room was just what we wanted, clean and a great patio with pool view. The pool itself is huge. Definitely worth it and will definitely return. The staff kept the place very clean to keep everyone safe as well.

Travelzoo was running a special rate for this hotel, so I booked for our anniversary. Was supposed to be cancellable on 24 hours notice. I contacted hotel to confirm we could bring our dogs, but no response. A week before the trip, I called the hotel to confirm our reservation, but they said they had no record of us. (Hotel is very difficult to reach, no one answers the phone there.) We then cancelled the reservation with Travelzoo, and I thought that was it. Just a waste of time. But then my credit card bill came, with a $178 charge from Kimpton Goodland. Even though they said they had no record of our reservation, and even though we had cancelled it with Travelzoo. Both Travelzoo and I are trying to call the hotel, but they aren't answering the phone. Just rings and rings. I won't use either business again.

We stayed here for a birthday celebration and to get out of town for a few days and do some wine tasting. The Goodland is an unusual Kimpton so don't be expect an upscale building, though they've done a nice job of renovating what must have been a pretty bland building. It's a spiffed up motel (they sell it as a surf motel), which is great for covidtimes as you can enter and exit tour room without worrying about bumping into people. We got a TravelZoo special of $119/night which included the amenity fee so the price was excellent. If we had paid $200 or more a night I think we would have felt a bit ripped off. Our room was of average size and faced out on the parking lot and side street (hey, at that price we weren't complaining!) but for more $$ you can get a room facing the courtyard and pool and have a private-ish patio. We traveled with our dog, and as with all Kimpton there was no pet fee (they are cat-friendly too, we saw some during our stay!). Our room was quite clean and the bed was comfortable. We didn't go to the pool, so can't speak to that but the free wifi was quite speedy. No coffee in the room but you can get it at the front desk in the AM. The rooms do have refrigerators. We got masks and hand sanitizer on check-in. The on-site restaurant is open (closed Tuesdays - the day we arrived, oops!) and is quite nice with good adherence to social distancing. There are LOTS of restaurants within walking distance. One down note: the potty area for dogs is REALLY small - we had to hunt for it as it is tucked away in a corner. We'd stay again (if we found another fab special) as Goleta is a great low-key alternative to busier and pricier Santa Barbara. We stayed mid-week so it wasn't at all crowded but it sounds like things can be quite lively on the weekends, so take that into account when booking

Worth not staying in Santa Barbara to stay here. Everything was very clean, they gave us masks and hand sanitizer on arrival. The room was clean and very comfy, the whole hotel is very cute. The restaurant is great and it’s easy to get takeout to eat in your room or sit safely outside on their patio. Can’t wait to go back.

Upon arrival, I was allowed to check in early...that was great. I had a courtyard room with patio. The patio was shared with another room, looks like there are some rooms that have a private patio, but not the room that I had. The room was clean but it needed a deep cleaning, especially the floor in the bathroom, it just looked dirty. The bed was comfortable. The staff were friendly. I was looking forward to checking out some vinyls and listening to them on the record player but the players are not in the room because of Covid. I was traveling with my dog. There was no extra fee for the dog, it is a dog friendly hotel.
