Perfectly comfortable and clean. Great beach vibe with an elevated level of style and the right touch of elegance. Service was high quality without the fuss. Bartender was extremely knowledgeable about local wines. Overall a super comfy experience.

Hotel's Favorite
I really like this hotel and I have stayed here twice during visits to SB- it has an amazing California vibe, and the boutique style modern decor really makes it so cool. The restaurant is also really good and I have eaten there both times I have stayed here. Rooms are pretty good, the bathroom is a tad cramped and there isn't a ton of space for your stuff, but the I love the in room record player and the record collection you can check out in the lobby. Pool is nice and we have spent time there too during our stay.

Only spent one night, arrived late and left early. What impressed me was the staff - super friendly and very comprehensive on explaining everything. Room was very clean, well appointed, comfortable bed. Only odd item was the shower - fairly small entrance - no door and shower sprayed a bit onto the floor. When I next need to stay in Goleta, I's definitely stay here.

I just returned from a two night stay at the Leta. We stayed there with our son, along with two other families who had brought their children. All of us were there doing college tours in So Cal, and the Leta was our stop during our visit to UCSB. The hotel is charming and well appointed. The restaurant and bar are pretty. The outdoor space is very nice. However, the staff does need training in customer service. Desk agents ranged from apathetic to rude. While we enjoyed our dinner at the Leta, and our server Brennan was quite sweet, our calamari was cold, the salmon overcooked, and the portions very small for the price. The biggest complaint I have, however, is with the room. The room itself was nice. The sheets and pillows were super comfy, and the retro motel feel is adorable. HOWEVER, the sliding bathroom door is a nightmare wrapped in a horror show. And I know that our own room was not an anomaly. As I said above, we stayed with two other families, who also had rooms at the Goleta. The sliders on the door made a noise every time one went to open or close the door--and that noise would have made a singularly excellent score for an episode of American Horror Story. A couple of other small details from the room: The shower head was clogged due to hard water and did not offer what one would consider a standard stream of water or adequate water pressure. And, the installation of the shower knob was faulty--meaning that turning it all the way around, 360 degrees, would alternately afford you hot water, cold water, or no water at all--but not for any rhyme or reason. The room, while small, was well laid out, but it did not have any desk space, or really any place to sit with a laptop. All in all, the Leta is a lovely hotel with some kinks to work out in terms of room design and amenities, and, mostly, in terms of customer service. The people who greet guests are the ones that make the first, and most important impression on customers, and they are the ones who really determine whether or not a hotel guest will be a one time only guest, or a return customer.
