It is a nice and comfortable hotel. Shopping is very easy because you can walk to the nearby shopping mall. Wi-Fi is available in the guest room without any charge but the speed and the signal strength is not satisfactory. I do hope that they will be improved in the near future. In conclusion, this hotel would be one of...

These folks have the most amazing property. Beautiful grounds, easy to find, lots of great parking, nice pool, great free breakfast, nice staff, pretty good pricing for the area. Lots of meal choices very close by too. But darn it! Why is there a blinking smoke alarm light on the darn wall!!! All their rooms have it and it's unbelievably...

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review our property. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your second stay with us, we appreciate your business.

The beds were extremely comfortable. They were in the process of remodeling the rooms, ours had not been done yet, but other family members rooms were, and they were really nice. The grounds were beautiful, we had a very pleasant stay.

We knew there was a renovation going on, but the front desk told me they were only renovating 3 rooms at a time, so it would not be noisy or disrupt our stay, so I booked it. Turns out we were placed directly above one of the rooms being renovated! We were woken up at 7:30am to hammering, sawing, and...

Best Western is the cleanest, most reasonably price hotel in the area. The breakfast is plentiful, but it doesn't change selections. My room was quiet and clean. The staff is always polite. I like the airport pick up service.

I was exhausted from driving three previous days-all day. The hotel was not only nice and clean but felt like a restful paradise. The pool was warm and refreshing. I loved the selection of DVDs and nice breakfast.

It was a convenient, friendly and value oriented stay with great amenities. The heated pool and food service made the family visit a memorable stay. I highly recommend the South Coast Inn for a stay in Goleta.

I recently stayed here for about few weeks while on a job assignment. The current rooms were old and out dated to say the least. The hotel was in the process of a much needed refurbishment.

This is a surprisingly pleasant motel. About a 10 minute drive to the Univ of CA in Santa Barbara campus and the beach. The room was clean, spacious and quiet.
