I was pleasantly surprised. The grounds are very nice, the room is very nice, and where else can you go where a full made to order breakfast is included in your rate. Two eggs over medium, hash browns, toast and coffee, pancakes, waffles? VERY NICE. The bedroom is a different area then the sofa desk area. A tv in each... More

We made a last minute decision to get away for the weekend and made reservations sight-unseen. What a serendipitous decision! The property is beautifully maintained and the rooms are immaculate and comfortably furnished - and the beds are wonderful. Dark and quiet at night; low key during the day. The room rate included a hot, made-to-order breakfast that was well-prepared... More

Our stay at the Pacifica Suites was very nice and relaxing. The staff did everything to assure our comfort. Our room was clean and well furnished. The included hot breakfasts were to our order and delicious. The afternoon appetizers and wine were presented in a beautiful living room.

We found this hotel completely by accident.....just a walk in. We had the last room, with separate living room. Large and spacious with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was small but perfectly adequate and plenty of towels. It is close to the freeway but we heard no noise from this. And the hotel corridors were quiet too...which can sometimes... More

We just finished an extended weekend trip to Santa Barbara/Goleta, and spent three nights here. The rooms were pleasant and quiet, but we were on the school side, and not facing the freeway (somewhat noisy). Beautiful grounds. Comfortable bed, and they have feather pillows available. Nice to have separate bedroom and living room, and as others have posted, plenty of... More

We have stayed at this hotel at couple of times now and both stays have been great. Its location makes it convenient to run back and forth to UCSB which we end up doing quite a bit since our reason for visiting is to my son who is a student there. The hot breakfast that's included is cooked to order... More

Front desk staff was welcoming. Room was a nice size, bed was comfortable. Included hot breakfast was convenient and helped us stay on time. Road noise was somewhat annoying but we were in a room closest to the highway so other rooms would be better.

Stayed here for a quick one-night trip up to Santa Barbara with the kids. Room was clean and quiet. Service was great. Pool and jacuzzi were warm/hot and clean. I have a pool of my own pool, and I'm a bit meticulous about it, so having my kids jump in a Hotel pool always gives me the creeps. I could... More
