Don't bother

There was construction going on, I heard pounding until at least 10:30p.m. We had exactly one towel, no wash cloths and the plaster /wall paper was peeling off of the bathroom wall above the toilet. It was also quite noisy, could hear people above us.

Average Hotel

Hotel was under construction when I visited. The pool area was closed. Rooms were clean but could use touch ups, for example a few of the electrical outlets did not work.

No special amenities

Shuttle service from airport advertised but had to ride in taxi with 4 of the flight crew (6 in taxi). No early am shuttle back to airport when we checked out. No coffee in room or available in lobby early am. Room rate reasonable and close to airport.

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.

Hotel Goleta

We selected Hotel Goleta because of location and price. Once inside we considered going to another hotel next door which was $30-40 more per night due to the poor impression Hotel Goleta made on us. If you need to be in Goleta and price is your major issue then this may be a choice. On a 5-star system a 1 or 2 is all we would give.
