Great spot to stay at. What you would expect from a Hampton. Staff is friendly and the housekeeping eager to accomodate Close to UCSB and minutes away from Santa Barbara. You have to walk the old downtown. Some good Mexican comfort food!

Our son began school at Westmont College & we needed a hotel for parent orientation. I had a reservation in Santa Barbara for almost twice the price, which I decided was ridiculous to pay for a place to sleep. After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was encouraged, but still a bit hesitant. The moment I entered the Inn, my fears were assuaged. For a hotel under $200 in the Santa Barbara area, the hotel not only met my expectations, but exceeded them. At check-in we were met with the Hilton chocolate chip cookies that we have grown to love (from the Doublee Tree Times Squares Suites that we love to frequent). Our room and bathroom were exceptionally clean, the beds comfortable, the décor pleasant. Breakfast had a wide variety of items, including fresh fruit salad and an array of choices for protein--not just carbs. I will look no further for a hotel when visiting at son at college. I’m sold!

We have stayed at the Hampton Inn, Goleta, CA last year with great results and thought we would try it again. The results were the same. Great service, very nice and clean room and the complimentary breakfast was very good with an ample variety of items. With all of the high priced hotels available in the Santa Barbara area this was the best value. It is several exits from State Street but well worth it. They also have delicious, fresh baked chocolate chip cookies available after 5:00 P.M. I highly recommend this hotel.

The Hampton Inn Santa Barbara/Goleta is an excellent place to stay! The hotel is exceptionally clean; the room was spacious; the staff are very professional, courteous, engage in conversation, and go above and beyond to ensure you are enjoying your stay. All employees that we spoke with seemed to genuinely enjoy their job. The hotel is very reasonably priced for the Santa Barbara area. A fully cooked buffet breakfast is available each morning; coffee is available and complimentary throughout the day. It is in close proximity to U.C. Santa Barbara, the beach, and downtown Santa Barbara. We enjoyed our stay so much -- we are staying at the hotel again next year! S&D C

We booked a room with two beds and a sleeper sofa. We've had rooms with that description at Hamptons before and while they were sufficient they weren't anything special. The room we got at this Hampton was huge - a great place for a family to stay. The neighborhood isn't great and there isn't much close by. But it is a nice new place.

The staff was absolutely awesome. They accommodated our every little need. We had a block of 20 rooms for a wedding and it couldn't have been any better. We were able to congregate in the breakfast area and bring in our own food and drink, not only did the staff not mind, they encouraged it. All our guest from the wedding party were all very satisfied. The only complaint I heard was the expense, but only from people who were from other areas of the country. Our friends and family from California found it to be quite reasonable.

Santa Barbara area can be incredibly expensive. This hotel is a wonderful alternative to spending top dollar. The hotel staff was incredibly professional and friendly. The pool area was clean and well stocked with towels. Our bed was very comfortable. Room was a nice size. Morning complimentary breakfast was better than most 'free' meals. Usually 3 hot items, eggs, meat and potatoes. Plenty of fruit, yogurt, cereals, pastries and very good waffles. The coffee was also quite good.
