We have stayed here several times and it is always a mixed bag. The rooms are clean, nicely sized, and the bedding comfortable. There are plenty of towels and pillows. There is an outdoor pool and jacuzzi and many restaurants and stores near-by (including Trader Joe's!) I find the breakfast buffet to be average at best. There is quantity, but not quality...the breakfast area is larger than most and when the weather is beautiful eating out on the patio is a great option. My real complaints are the thinness of the walls and the friendliness of the staff. This trip we were placed right next to the laundry room and could hear the machines working all day, including some rather loud noises when the plumbing was used to fill the washers. I figured this was just going to be a problem during the day with the maids changing out so much bedding, but alas, I was woken in the middle of the night by the noise as well. You can also hear the upstairs neighbors everytime they walk across the floor. The staff *is* professional, but not friendly. Even a simple "Good morning" was not returned by some staff members. So, would I stay here again? Yes...but I always compare the price between this Best Western and the Holiday Inn next door and go with the cheapest option. It is significantly cheaper than anything in downtown Santa Barbara and there is certainly less traffic in Goleta with easy access to the airport and beach. The property backs up on a nice residential neighborhood that is very family friendly and safe.
