This hotel is a comfortable suite style hotel right near the action of Goleta and UCSB. The separate living room area with pull out couch was great for my son, and the king size bed in the bedroom was soooo comfy. Close to restaurants and easy access to the freeway. Yes, you are right next to the freeway but never...

Had a very nice stay at Pacifica Suites. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds are lovely - tree and flower filled. The room was cozy and the included breakfast was delicious. Overall, I highly recommend the property. It is very convenient to UCSB and to Santa Barbara. Room furniture could use some updating but that is a...

Nice 1-bedroom suite setup. Would've preferred a door to the bedroom for complete privacy in the bedroom. Appreciated the in-room Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator and complimentary bottles of water. Also appreciated the complimentary coffees and teas in the lobby. Only criticism was the room rate. The AAA rate of $379 per night is rather high for this property. I was...

Stayed here for business meeting. I only gave an average of 3 because it seems a bit run down. The property is lovely. Grounds are a bit overgrown but nice. I wouldn't dare sit on the sofas. But the rooms were comfortable. The beds are nice I had a great rest. The lobby has a horrible BO smell. Fresh flowers...

Stayed here with 2 boys during a college tour. We had a great suite - separate bedroom for the boys and comfy living room with pullout sofa for me. Gorgeous view overlooking the pool with filtered views from our balcony of a sunset. Pool view was framed by apple trees. Super close to UCSB. Great running and biking trails minutes...

We flew in from Miami for a wedding at the Glen Annie Golf Club, and this was one of the recommended hotels nearby. The grounds are lovely and well-maintained, and very quiet, except for barking dogs not well-controlled by their owners. The suites are very spacious and clean, and the bed very comfortable. The staff is friendly and eager to...

All the previous positive reviews are correct. This hotel is a truly hidden gem. If you blink, you'll miss the entrance driveway, but once you drive onto the grounds, your heart will be happy. The grounds are beautiful... different plants and flowers everywhere. The large rooms feel private, with little patios or balconies. The made to order breakfasts are consistently...

Just completed my stay at the Pacifica Suites and left feeling a bit disappointed. I had the misfortune of being placed in a ground level suite that butted up against the parking lot and freeway.

A wonderful stay during a college tour visit.The property appears to be a 1970's hotel complex, but it has been very well modernized. Room was a great size, grounds were beautiful, and the "cooked to order" breakfast was a very luxurious touch.
