The pool, patios and gardens are quite nice, but the room, though clean, was dismal. I know they are renovating rooms; we obviously had a non-remodeled version and it was small, dark and dank. Window did not open and the only source of air was an air conditioning unit that loudly cycled on and off through the night. Price was...

Stayed here when we came to spend Memorial Day weekend with daughter who is a student at UCSB. Stayed here before. Nice breakfast included. We received a room which had recently been renovated. Very nice, although it was in the back of the property with not much of a view. A bit pricey as it was a 3 day weekend.

Excellent, comfortable and well placed hotel with amazing gardens. Newly renovated rooms are fantastic. Must rate as one of the best I've stayed in. The renovation work going on at the time wasn't intrusive. It should be complete by now.

The grounds are really lovely. The rooms are nice, but a bit small. Because the room doors open to the outside, the noise level was a bit high until the other guests settled down for the night. The location was terrific! There are shops and cafes within walking distance plus it's just off the 101.

Lovely dinning area. You can eat inside but I enjoyed eating outside under the umbrellas. Nice place to swim, hot tubs and other desirable amenities. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The breakfast served was excellent. I would visit this place again if I went to Goleta.

We booked a king suite at this beautiful Goleta location. The grounds are well manicured with topiary carvings of shrubs and bushes. It was quiet and parking was very convenient. Staff was very friendly, rooms were clean and the bed was very comfortable. The pool/spa areas were well maintained and expansive. The breakfast had rotating food selections. Fresh ground and...

We wanted a reasonably priced hotel near the ocean, near great seafood restaurants, convenient to our Santa Barbara wedding activities. Also very close to Trader Joe's. Turned out better than we expected choice. I thought it was overpriced, since the place is a bit rundown on the exterior. But good, plentiful breakfast, helpful staff pointed us to where we wanted...

Welcoming friendly staff and a great little town with uncrowded beaches to enjoy just north of Santa Barbara. We enjoyed a newly refurbished room which was beautifully done and a big improvement since our last stay. Great pool and hot tub nestled amongst the park like grounds.
