The room was pretty noisy. They are next to the freeway on ramp and you can hear every car getting on the freeway. The rooms are nice and have a separate living room. The hotel has a happy hour with free wine and cheese. You will not be within walking distance to Santa Barbara if you stay here. It's a...

The gardens were lovely, with some unusual plants. Felt a bit like being in Hawaii. Spacious and clean rooms. Comfortable beds. Friendly staff. Delicious, made-to-order breakfast. Pleasant wine and snack reception on week nights. Nice pool area. Free wireless Internet. Near UCSB. No traffic noise, though close to the freeway. Great place to stay!

Lovely rooms -sitting room and bedroom- with all the additions one would hope for: free wifi, in room coffee service a made to order, very generous breakfast included in the room charge. Please note that while this hotel comes up when you do a search for Santa Barbara it is not in Santa Barbara itself but in a suburb. The...

This wonderful boutique hotel was the perfect place to stay when visiting Santa Barbara. We loved it! My daughter and I stayed there when we were visiting UCSB and it is so conveniently located to the campus. Honestly, I can't imagine why anyone who visits UCSB would stay anywhere else. It was a great escape from the hustle and bustle...

Peaceful location in Goleta. Very friendly, helpful and professional staff. Rooms were well equipped and to a high standard. Enjoyed the reception with free drinks and nibbles that were available on the days we were there (available Monday through Thursday I think). Breakfast was very good and included an excellent freshly cooked hot meal. Pool available; looked good but didn't...

My husband and family were very pleased with our choice of Pacifica Suites for a three day exploration of Santa Barbara. The check-in with Chelsea was very pleasant and the rooms exceeded our expectations. The beds deserve mention for comfort. The grounds were beautifully planted and maintained and gave the impression of being isolated from the busy road yet convenient...

We stayed at the Pacifica Suites for 4 nights because of meetings that were being held at the hotel and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were exceptional and really did what they could to make us feel welcome, especially the front desk staff. The rooms were the perfect size with a sitting area and separate bedroom, and were very...

Very nice accomodations, large suite rooms, beautiful grounds, cooked to order breakfast, and our dog was welcome! The afternoon "happy hour" offered some nice local wines and snacks. Very pleased with our stay, and would stay again. Only downside was the distance from Santa Barbara "proper" but very happy with the stay otherwise.

Can't say enough about this hotel! We stayed for one night on our way to Cambria. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and welcoming, they even acknowledged we had stayed there before. Our 2 room suite was spacious, quiet, and clean. The bed very comfortable, with nice linens and TVs in both the bedroom and living room....
