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....

We made a last minute decision to get away for the weekend and made reservations sight-unseen. What a serendipitous decision! The property is beautifully maintained and the rooms are immaculate and comfortably furnished - and the beds are wonderful. Dark and quiet at night; low key during the day. The room rate included a hot, made-to-order breakfast that was well-prepared...

Our stay at the Pacifica Suites was very nice and relaxing. The staff did everything to assure our comfort. Our room was clean and well furnished. The included hot breakfasts were to our order and delicious. The afternoon appetizers and wine were presented in a beautiful living room.

We found this hotel completely by accident.....just a walk in. We had the last room, with separate living room. Large and spacious with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was small but perfectly adequate and plenty of towels. It is close to the freeway but we heard no noise from this. And the hotel corridors were quiet too...which can sometimes...
