My daughter lives in Santa Barbara and this is our go to place. We have stayed everywhere over time from the Biltmore to the Baccara. While those places have luxuries especially their locations we find our pocket book is better served in the Pacific Suites. Each room has a separate living room with desk, couch and TV and a bedroom...

The room size is very roomy . We got a room with a living room and a one bedroom with queensize beds. Very comfy. Location is perfect right next to the highway. It's also walking distance to a Catholic Church. Very quiet location.

We stayed here to break up the drive from the central coast before going back to San Diego. Hotel is super convenient, we didn't notice any noise at all but it's nice and close to great dinner options (we walked to the origional Habit and had a great burger at the old school outdoor patio). Room is nice, good layout...

A great location, easy to the ocean and 101 highway. Accommodating staff, wonderful breakfast, cooked to order included in the price. Also wine and nibbles in the afternoon during the week. Furnishings a little tired but clean. Friendly atmosphere. Enjoyed meeting the Manager, Sylvia. Very conscientious.

This hotel is a comfortable suite style hotel right near the action of Goleta and UCSB. The separate living room area with pull out couch was great for my son, and the king size bed in the bedroom was soooo comfy. Close to restaurants and easy access to the freeway. Yes, you are right next to the freeway but never...

Nice 1-bedroom suite setup. Would've preferred a door to the bedroom for complete privacy in the bedroom. Appreciated the in-room Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator and complimentary bottles of water. Also appreciated the complimentary coffees and teas in the lobby. Only criticism was the room rate. The AAA rate of $379 per night is rather high for this property. I was...
