Nice hotel and new but location not close to Santa Barbara attractions bit it is close to the airport. They do have a shuttle but they do not shuttle before 7:00 AM which can be a problem if you have an early flight.

I was the co-organizer of a reunion of nearly 90 friends who graduated from nearby UCSB in the 1960-70s. It was a 3-day event that with extensive support from the Hotel's local management became an occasion we all treasured and will remember forever. I and my co-organizer had no experience in planning such an event so we could not have... More

Very, very nice new hotel with excellent, friendly staff. Quiet and clean, with great internet. Pretty much everything I could ask for in a place to stay while on the road. Located out of town and very convenient to the airport. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for one night to visit UCSB. It appears to be one of the newest hotel in the area and we had a pleasant stay. Due to the limited number of hotels in Goleta, the rates are extremely high. Not sure why more chain hotels don't open up in this area. Overall a pleasant stay.

We spent two nites at Courtyard Santa Barbara Goleta this past weekend as part of a wedding that was taking place at a local resort. The price at $329 a night was expensive for a Courtyard but everything near Santa Barbara is pricey so no surprise. The property is nice, service is friendly, parking is easy. Rooms are clean but...

As soon as we arrived we realized this was a newer property, everything was in perfect condition. The staff at the front desk were friendly and extremely helpful! They gave us an excellent room/suit on the second floor. After we had dinner locally we went to the hot tub and met several very nice people that had children attending UCSB.... More

We stayed here to tour UCSB during campus preview weekend. You could walk to campus, but they provided a free shuttle. The staff was welcoming and informative about the area. It is fairly new, and everything was in good condition.

Great new property. Beautiful outdoor courtyard with nice furniture and pool. Pretty lobby to sit and relax in. Close and convenient location to UCSB campus and Tropicana dorm for SBCC students. Only con: the bed was not comfortable in the least!

Awesome hotel. Extra friendly staff. Pool always had towels stocked. Check in was easy. Grounds well maintained. Close to Costco and shops. Rooms are well maintained. Starbucks in the lobby was a plus. Close to Santa Barbara and just a few minutes to UCSB AND beach.
