We've stayed here on two occasions, each time for a few days. Each time, we have been struck with how eager the staff is to make your stay pleasant. They are quick to find you extra pillows and towels. They are always available with a smile at the front desk. Cookies are left out in the afternoons. The breakfast bar... More

Very good staff, very clean and beautifully kept. The two (8 and 12 yr. old) just love this place. Each year we take them to horseback riding camp in SB but they spend as much time in the pool as at the barn. We chose to go back to a one bedroom even before we knew they had remodeled. Very...

Modern contemporary room theme. Easy access to the 101. Complimentary breakfast was standard nothing fancy but did the trick. The landscaping was beautifully manicured. Pool and spa were nice. Not loud even though it's next to the highway.

I've stayed at a lot of Best Westerns, but this one was extra nice. Beautiful grounds, nice staff, great pool. Plus, it's relatively inexpensive compared to nearby Santa Barbara hotels. We'll definitely here next time we're in the area.

I have stayed at alot of Best Westerns. They are my favorite brand when I travel. We booked into this hotel 9 months in advance because my daughter was getting married in Goleta. They recently remodeled and I must say the rooms were tight. Tile floors were all uneven and dirty even. Cleaning staff swiffered them, not even steam cleaned.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights with 2 queen beds. Nice hotel with facilities including business center, fitness center, laundry machines, pool, spa, table tennis. Everything is great. Breakfast is not cooked to order like Pacifica Suites but fresh self made waffles with orange juice is my favorite. Espresso machine is available 24 hours? At least I can get one... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed the pool, breakfast, very helpful staff and proximity to Santa Barbara, beaches, UCSB. Well worth the price and especially inviting gardens and pool area. We were a group of 6 adults but this would be a good choice for families with young children as well.
