I have stayed at a lot of best westerns, but this was one of the best. The room was in excellent condition. The pool was clean and spacious and the hot tub was clean and working properly. The grounds were well cared for and the topiaries were so creative. We had fun just walking around and trying to guess what... More

All amenities were excellent upon arrival. This is a large facility which hosts precision garden landscapes. Great for a weekend romantic getaway. Also very close to the City of Santa Barbara. I hope to return someday.

We stayed at the Best Western South Coast while visiting family last month. We liked the fact that pets are not allowed and they have a good free breakfast with eggs, yogurt, fruit and other items. You could walk to Trader Joe's and a great smoothie place and a good Japanese restaurant. I wish the windows opened but no hotels... More

Located strategically off I5 and before UCSB/SBState. More service companies nearby and even open during Labor Day holiday. Improved rooms and grounds make it a pleasure to stay at Best Western South Coast Inn.

Rooms were clean, Gardens were lovely. Breakfast was good, hot and plentiful. Staff always around to freshen it up. Never ran out so convenient to have on-site. My husband found the beds a little too soft, but I loved it. Close to freeway but no freeway noise.

We were in Santa Barbara for a wedding, but due to the high hotel prices in the city, we opted to stay at Best Western Plus South Coast Inn in Goleta which was quite affordable. This hotel was about 10 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara. The hotel's outdoor landscape had very a well manicured garden, and the rooms were spacious,... More

Stayed one night at the Best Western South Coast Inn in Goleta. Very pretty grounds, fairly well maintained. Rooms nice. I've stayed here before. My daughter and I went out at approx. 9:15 to relax in the spa for a little while. We had had a long drive to Goleta that day and I, especially, was really achy from walking... More

Very good location in Santa Barbara, close to many restaurants. It has magnificent gardens, well manicured. The room is a good size with comfy beds and good linen. The breakfast was a regular American type brekkies. Staff were friendly and helpful

On a recent road trip we found this place. We were a little skeptical since most of the hotels were booked in the area except for this one. Made us wonder if there was something we didn't know. Fortunately all those people missed out on an affordable little gem. The rooms seem to have been recently updated but you still... More

As Starwood members, we usually stay in the Sheraton, W or Westin hotels but as there were none in the area, based on the reviews, we stayed here for two nights to visit UCSB and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. I thought the hotel was really great for the price. Their complimentary shuttle is awesome. For that alone I will... More
