This is a nice hotel with nice sized rooms. The bathrooms are nice & clean. Robes are also provided. There aren't any restaurants within walking distance so be prepared to drive for dinner. The free cooked-to-order breakfast is also quite good. Avoid rooms on the first floor as you can hear everything going on in the room above. There are...

We wanted to stay in Santa Barbara but the prices for a two night stay were unreasonable so we chose to say here instead. We would have preferred to have been in Santa Barbara looking out over the water I have to say and we hadn't realised we were so far out of things in this hotel but that is...

I've stayed here several times a year for four years (two daughters at UCSB), and will continue to do so for about another two. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Delicious, filling, cooked to order full breakfast in a lovely setting (both indoors and out). Quiet rooms, such comfortable beds. Staff have always been responsive and attentive. It's a little expensive, but...

This is my second time staying at Pacifica Suites in Goleta and again it did not dissapoint. The suite room is spacious and clean, breakfast is good and the proximity to UCSB makes it a great spot to stay for parents and familes of students there. I have also stayed in hotels in downtown Santa Barbara and north at Bacara...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Pacifica Suites. I needed a specific type room when I set up my reservation. Eric was very responsive. He listened, understood what I wanted, and found the right room for us. When we arrived the room was as advertised. The grounds and morning breakfast were just great. The hotel has great access onto...

Just spent 4 fabulous nights here attending a close friend's wedding and taking in some sights as well. We had a second floor suite overlooking the pool and great landscaping, and recommend it w/o qualifications. The breakfast was varied and sitting outdoors while gobbling up the goodies was a great way to start the day. Staff was helpful and courteous....

We stayed here 4 nights whiLe we got our daughter settled at UCSB. The hotel is very convenient to the campus, great breakfast, friendly folks, cookies in the afternoon. Make sure u get a side by side suite as they are better laid out than the front to back units. We will be back!

As a visitor to Santa Barbara several times, I’ve always stayed near downtown in the West Beach area where there are a lot of older motels and hotels – some updated, some not. This seemed like the logical place to stay – walking distance to the beach, but a long walk to downtown. A little pricey for the quality of...

We have stayed in this hotel 4 times over the past 4 years and every experience has been good. Rooms are just the right size, the beds very comfortable and a cooked to order breakfast is wonderful. in recent years they added a fabulous coffee machine that makes expressos and lattes-- no need to run to Coffee Bean and Tea...

The hotel is on an amazing piece of property and could really be turned into something fantastic. However, it feels a little rundown and tired. The grounds are beautiful, but the rooms and interior corridors are pretty dated. Beds were great, the bathroom was a little small, and there was a sewage smell coming from the drain or the water...
