Very friendly staff, they surprised me how genuinely nice they were. The property is a bit dated, but there's history there, and I don't mind not having the newest furniture in my room. I also appreciated the cook to order breakfast - great food. Comfy bed, cozy suite, and plenty of outlets to charge all my business gadgets. Plus, it's...

Stayed one night. Excellent staff and service. Quiet clean rooms. Great breakfast included. Lovely court side dining and swimming pool. Would stay again. Rooms are spacious with separate king bed room and separate living area with two TVs. Location is close to downtown Santa Barbara.

Visited Santa Barbara for a business trip recently and stayed here. Travel arrangements were provided by the agency so I did not really have a choice. Pleasantly surprized, nice older place but it is located next to highway CA-217 so I expected road noise. My room was a 2 room suite and there was absolutely no road noise heard from...

We stayed here for my sister's bachelorette. It is a close cab ride away from downtown SB. Very affordable and fantastic free breakfast and free hotel parking. They have complimentary tea and coffee in the lobby all day long.

We have traveled to Santa Barbara quite a few times in recent years and have chosen Pacifica Suites as our favorite place to stay! No, it's not in the middle of downtown, but the rooms are suites, are extremely comfortable and the full breakfast is outstanding. It's a great value for the area!

It costs a little more than other motels, but it's worth it. The place is quiet (except for the rooms overlooking the highway), clean, friendly and more upscale than most. It's particularly convenient to UCSB and not bad for downtown Santa Barbara (~ 12 minutes). If you go don't miss their breakfast, one of the best I've had. Also, the...

Great place to stay. Nearest to airport (5 mins). Very calm and quite. Staff is very friendly and helping. You would receive every thing that you need in a hotel (complimentary breakfast, evening drinks, Free Wi-fi, drinking water bottles, Access to cable TV, big bathroom) for a comfortable stay. This quality stay is very economical and worth it!!!

Our recent stay at Pacifica Suites was very pleasant and comfortable. The staff was helpful without being overbearing. I like the breakfast service as it's very efficient with the "made to order" style and eliminates waste. Our rooms were kept clean and the beds are super comfortable. It's not on State Street but the price can't be beat and having...

Very well-kept and attractive grounds and rooms. Dogs <40 lbs are welcomed here. We brought our dog and followed the hotel's rules for cleaning up after our pet. Unfortunately, others did not and my husband stepped in dog excrement while in the parking lot and I saw some while walking on the hotel grounds. The nearest dog elimination area near...

This was our first time staying at this property. We have stayed at 5 other moderate and upscale hotels in Santa Barbara and this is our favorite! It is older but well maintained and charming! The lobby is huge and quite welcoming. The staff is professional and friendly. In addition to 2 free bottles of water in our suite, Pacifica...
