Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very helpful and friendly staff, happily gave us directions and recommendations for dinner, easy location to UCSB, the highway and surrounding areas. Very comfy rooms, great shower and breakfast is always a perk with teen boys! Liked eating al fresco by the pool in the morning. Will be back again...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 December 2016

Was here for Ucsb softball camp. Fantastic best western, rooms renovated very well appointed. Grounds are ver nice. Lots of lights in the room. Shower so much better than a tub, water temperature had to be adjusted back and forth a few times to get water adjusted but water pressure is excellent. Good breakfast, like the little omelette choices better...

Close to UCSB enabling grandson to check out campus. Santa Barbara is right down the road. The hotel has lovely gardens and comfortable upgraded rooms. Typical Best Western Plus buffet breakfast is served 6:30 to 9:30.

Quaint hotel with clean rooms. Room had everything we needed for a one night stop. The hotel was within walking distance to restaurants and other activities. Breakfast the next morning was good as well.

I stayed at the Goleta Best Western for a job interview taking place in town. This is a great hotel and price. The staff was friendly, the grounds were immaculate. Would definitely stay here again. Continental breakfast was great. I liked the diy waffle maker.

We stay at best western hotel and would like to use our points for room. We're still going to travel and use motels and we hope you keep improving the quality. The cost for week stays should keep going up

We loved everything about the facility except the NOISE/VIBRATIONS associated with the water pipes. Unfortunately we were told that it could not be fixed during our stay. Not every room had the problem but since the hotel was full we could not be moved to a different room. That problem was enough to influence my opinion on the value of...

The rooms are nice, but I had no interaction with any of the staff even though I was there for three nights. It's not that I had bad interaction, they just never interacted with me. Every time I went through the lobby, the staff were staring down at a computer the whole time.
