My fault, I shouldn't have left my bags in the car, but I was planning on leaving at 4:30 am. Much to my surprise my car had been broken into sometime between 11 pm and 4 am. And mine wasn't the only one, another car had also had their passenger side window broken in the parking lot just like mine....

I love this property .This is a great hotel . I love brand new clean hotels. There are many hotels in this area that are old and outdated and they charge a lot more money. This hotel provides great values and is brand new. Every time I have been here it seems like the people love there job. That's another...

The front desk staff are the best. I always stay here when I am in the area. It is 10 minutes from Santa Barbara and in walking distance from restaurants. The rooms are beautiful and so spacious. The restaurant is very good.

What a pleasant find! An excellent location for our wine tasting excursion -- the corkscrews in the rooms are a nice extra touch. Rooms are well-kept and the lobby is welcoming. Disappointed that the Bistro does not open until 7 a.m. Coffee is available at the check-in desk -- for a fee. Why not offer free coffee for the early...

I give it 5 stars for a Courtyard. Our room was very nice, clean, & loved the pull out table (actually ate dinner), not fan in the bathroom, but no biggy. We didn't mind staying a little further away from Santa Barbara because we got a good deal and Goleta is a fun place also - beach, waterfront bar, walked...

Great place to stay. Family oriented. 12 to 14 year old kids REALLY loved the swimming pool. Helpful staff. Nearby (5-10 minute walks) for restaurants/shopping in strip malls. (Kmart, local diner type places with GREAT service also)

Bear in mind this is in Goleta and near UCSB, not that close to Santa Barbara. Beautiful hotel, my favorite Courtyard of all. Great pool, firepits, service. Convenient parking. Near restaurants. The rooms are very clean and there is a nice lobby and great service as well.

In a town where you can't buy a starter home under $500, decent hotels under $300 on a regular basis are hard to find. The Courtyard is close to Goleta businesses, a short hop to SB downtown, and minutes from UCSB. Even for a corporate hotel, it is charming (particularly the courtyard), the staff always remembered my name, and it's...

Everything was fine here except for the mattresses and, of course, that's not an insignificant factor when choosing a place of lodging. We've been on the road 1-1/2 weeks, staying in quite a few different hotels, and these are the worst mattresses we've experienced. They seem like they should have been replaced long ago. If that's not the problem, then...
