"Motel"

This is a "Motel" not a hotel under remodeling; No business center, No closets in room, No continental breakfast, free coffee, that's all. Rooms were clean, people were friendly; definitely NOT a hotel or 4 stars; I'd rate it as a 3 star motel

Hotel under construction, stay somewhere else

While the rooms are all finished and nicely decorated, the rest of the hotel is under massive reconstruction. The work began promptly at 8:30 and was very loud. After I found the reception area in a trailer parked next to the main building, I asked the receptionist if there would be noise. I explained that I needed a quiet place to catch up on sleep and she assured me that the rooms were quiet. They were not. I was also very confused by the fact that the hotel was nearly empty and a family with children were placed in the room next to mine. There is no restaurant or bar in hotel or mini-bar in room.

Staff was wonderful and great location. Walking distance to many restaurants. Hotel is being renovated, but once complete should be Perfect in all ratings! Fire pit in the pool courtyard with the bar was a perfect place to unwind at night.

Overnight stop

We stayed here on route from San Simeon to LA. There was nothing fundamentally wrong with the hotel other than the price, but with hindsight should have motored on to LA and stayed there for an extra night. If you have to break your journey this is an expensive option.

Nice hotel

Everything about the Hotel Goleta was very nice, clean and in excellent shape. If you can get it at less than $100 (like I did on this site) it is a fantastic bargain! At the normal rate of $149 for two adults it is reasonable value.

This is in Goleta and is only a 5-10 minute drive from UCSB, so it is very convenient if you have a kid going to school there.

Very comfortable

The beds, pillows and linens were very comfortable. We liked the outdoor bar around a firepit though it was too cold to enjoy this time. We would stay there again.

If I hadn't prepaid, I would've left

I complained to the staff about the dirty (hair) shower. It didn't improve or change for any of the 3 nights I was there. And housekeeping was there everyday. The shower dripped all night, every night. The AC was inadequate. Room to room noise was bad as was the outdoor noise of people walking by in front of the door.

Great family getaway

The location was ok just outside Santa Barbara. The restraunts are just acoss the street. My whole family enjoyed our trip throughly. We went to the Mission, rented a 4 seated bike on the beach. The zoo is small but very nice. We will definately go back my kids wish we could go back tomorrow.

Newly Remodeled

We stayed at this hotel in June 2007 and had a good experience. They were just putting the finishing touches on a major remodel of all the rooms and repainting the exterior. The breakfast bar was excellent, fairly priced, pleasant and quick. Located very close to UCSB. You can't go wrong here.
