We recently stayed at the Ramada Inn in Goleta. We had a very quiet, comfortable, spacious room with a beautiful view of the landscaped grounds. The hotel employees were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this Ramada Inn.

The customer service at this Ramada Inn is superb. The rooms are very comfortable, top floor rooms have balconies overlooking tropical landscape and ponds. Perfect location close to the airport and UCSB, and just minutes away from downtown Santa Barbara. The hotel keeps their pool well heated, so the family was able to comfortably swim even with the cooler weather....

Given the pricing, this hotel is not up to par. When paying over $150.00 a night for a hotel room, one would expect a nice looking room and bathroom, but this could not be found. The rooms appear to be dated and are in need of a serious renovation. The bathroom was the worst part of the stay, given the...

We try to visit Santa Barbara area at least once each year and when we do we always stay at this Ramada. The rooms are clean, well kept and recently have been remodeled. The second floor rooms have the best views of the pool, gardens and lagoons are the ones that we prefer. The complimentary breakfasts are excellent.
