it seems all the rooms are suites with plenty of room and two TVs. The pool is large enough for kids to have fum in without bumping into each other. It is near Highway 101 but very quiet. Santa Barbara is obout a ten minute drive from the hotel. There are two beaches just a few minutes away (one on...

This hotel was as many reviewers said-close to highway(and a little hard to spot that sign at night). But a great value-clean, mini friidge in room, with the "suite" style room, comfy bed and pillows and Delicious Breakfast to Order which kept us full for most of our days wine tasting! We were not around for the evening "wine reception"...

The location was my least favorite part of this hotel but it wasn't that bad. It was close to the beach and wine country but I prefer to stay in the downtown area. The rooms were comfy. It was clean. The grounds were pretty. It was close to a highway but you didn't even notice. I was surprised by how...

Absolutely loved our stay at Pacifica Suites for a weekend getaway from LA. We had a suite with living room separated by a wall. The beds were extremely comfy with very white sheets. The bathroom had Philosophy products (yay for not having cheap stuff that dries out the skin). The free breakfast was pretty awesome. You get a slip of...

First time stay at Pacifica Suites ~ chosen due to superior ratings on Tripadvisor. The room layout was great, with a separate bedroom and TV in both bedroom and living room. The room was clean, but the property is somewhat dated. We had a deluxe pool/garden room with a patio (first floor) and the location was nice, but I would...

We booked a room here based on the generally good reviews on TA. The perks of this place have been extensively mentioned in previous reviews, such as spaciousness, convenient location, good hot made-to-order breakfast, reasonably priced. I'd like to mention some of the things I wished I had known beforehand. The cold tap water is brownish, and the sink drain...

If you like Embassy Suites, need or want to be near UCSB, Goleta (10 min from downtown Santa Barbara) then this is the place for you. Nice living room with slider to a very nice patio or balcony. Both bedroom and living room have tv with hbo and good wifi. Breakfast is eggs, cereal etc and evening reception is decent...

We've come with our two teenage daughters several times now. All of our experiences were positive. The room is spacious and quiet. The staff always friendly and helpful. The cooked to order breakfast and coffee machine is a plus!

We arrived very late around 11 pm driving from San Jose. The location of the hotel was good. It was easy to find , just off 101 south. The lobby was very nice. However, we found the room was a bit disappointing. The air condition was screaming all the time. You need to have a good pair of ear plug...

Navigating to this hotel worried me, you approach it in what looks like a fairly un-touristy area but bt hey have created a little oasis which suited out overnight stopover en route to LA. Decent sized one bedroom suite, complimentary wine and beer n weekdays pool outside the room, and very peaceful. Helpful staff, free Internet (something that I always...
