I stayed here with my family. I loved the living room/bedroom set up. It allowed for all of us to be there but not feel overcrowded. From previous reviewers, we opted for the pool-side room, so we didn't hear much freeway noise except for the occasional loud motorist. The rooms were clean, pleasant but average. Plenty of parking, free Wifi...

I have stayed here with my family and it is always a reliably nice stay. Would recommend to anyone. Large amount of space for Santa Barbara/Goleta area. The breakfast was an unexpected delight. Comfortable pullout sofa in the separate room allows for a family to stay in one suite. Came in late at night and they still had our room...

The suites are like an apartment. I enjoy the comfort and peace found here. The bed is extremely comfortable, the cleanliness is impeccable and the suite is so spacious. Nice white fluffy towels and good bath amenities in case you forget yours. I love the robes. The rooms are all very quiet and beautiful. I like the colors used in...

Nice suites but the photographer needs a raise for making the room look MUCH larger than it really is! That being said, the rooms were lovely even if they were smaller than portrayed. And we stayed in room 328 and the room was unbelievably quiet for a hotel! Comfy bed, lots of pillows, and even the sofa bed was comfy....

Everyone we met on the staff was wonderful, the breakfast perfectly made, the room clean and comfortable. We are looking at Pacifica Suites as a place to hold one of our weekend workshops. It is perfect for our clients needs and comfort.

This little gem is really exquisite. The suites are spacious, and the all-important bed so comfortable I looked for the brand so I could buy one. It also includes a made-to-order breakfast in a cute little cafe. I will be back when in the Santa Barbara area.

Stayed here one night on business. Room was very large and clean. Very nice reception in the evening with free wine, beer and appetizers. Cooked to order free breakfast in the morning. What more could you want?

At the age of 76, I've done a lot of traveling and I'm very discriminating about service. Seldom do I encounter the level of superiority that I enjoyed for a week at Pacifica Suites. Allow me to post one small example: The toilet in our one bedroom deluxe suite was slow to flush. Staff appeared within half an hour. Repeat...

I love the property and the staff. The bed is comfortable, the rooms are clean. It is rare to have a separate bedroom, I always feel like I am staying in a suite.

I love Pacifica Suites! My family and I have stayed there 3-4 times over the past year since my son started attending UCSB. Since my son goes to school and lives in Goleta, Pacifica Suites is conveniently close to the airport and where he lives. It took less than 30 minutes to leave the hotel, drop him at his dorm...
