“Decent budget option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

We booked this for 2 nights. I'm not sure why we didn't book a hotel in Santa Barbara itself, I don't think it was price. Anyway, it was good. Room was comfortable and clean, the guest laundry room was very useful, it was easy to find, the staff were helpful and the breakfast was decent. Santa Barabara is an easy 10 minute drive away. This hotel felt like a bit of a bargain.

I was so pleasantly surprised by the Best Western in Goleta. The rooms were spacious, the grounds were GORGEOUS and the hotel staff was top of the line. For the price it has to be by far the best value in the area. Will absolutely return next year when I'm back on business. Thanks so much everyone at the BWP SCI!

We stayed here September 14, 2013. The hotel grounds and pool area are great. The room was nicely furnished and we appreciated the included wifi. The hotel is about 10 to 15 minutes from most of the great restaurants in Santa Barbara. There is a grocery store and strip malls nearby. For a hotel this nice, the rates were very reasonable. Our son goes to UCSB, so we visit this area several times during the year. Wish we knew about this hotel before. We will definitely stay here again.

When visiting relatives in Goleta, this is a nice, clean, convenient place to stay. Most other hotels cost more. If someone stays longer, a discount would be a great plus. The staff will pick up and drop off in a 10 minute radius, a wonderful service.

Exceptional hotel for the price in every way. Nice heated pool, hot tub, great breakfast choices (one of the best selections ever seen), nice rooms, beautiful landscaping with topiary and sculptures, very nice staff (manager happily shipping back an item I forgot in room), and simply a beautiful overall location in Goleta.

A great value for your money. They offer free breakfast and wi-fi, though we didn't have their breakfast because we had food that we brought with us. Our room was clean and what little interaction we had with the staff was fine. I'd stay here again if we were to visit Goleta/Santa Barbara again.

We are on a road trip through California and we chose to stay here. We are thrilled that we did. What a beautiful hotel! The grounds are gorgeous and they have some wonderful topiary. The pool is very nice although not the 84 degrees that they say it is. The rooms are great and the beds are comfortable.Location is also a plus as it is not far from Solvang or Santa Barbara. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
