I cannot say enough good things about this hotel! It is close to UCSB, shopping, restaurants, and a movie theater. My room was new, clean, and spacious. I had a 1st floor courtyard room with a super cute patio. The courtyard had a beautiful pagoda, putting greens, a pool and jacuzzi. It was so pleasant to sit out on my...

Pleasantly surprised. The hotel common areas and outdoor spaces are fresh and updated, however the rooms are slightly dated and resemble Residence Inn decor. Front desk team was super friendly and engaging which always sets the right tone for me. I did order food from the main restaurant and went down to pick it up, was so excited to bring...

The hotel was very clean and has everything you need. I find it a little too bland and basic for my standard. The bar closes Stu about 10pm, which i found a little early. Staff were all friendly and as mentioned above the room was spotless.

We stayed at this property for 3 nights. The premises are nice, room comfortable and it is well located. It does not include breakfast and the "restaurant" on premises has very limited and expensive choices. I would not recommend this property as the room cleaning service is terrible. One of the days they came to clean the room at 4:15...

Needed a hotel for a meeting at the Santa Barbara University and found this hotel to be only a 20 min walk away. Very quiet and relaxed armosphere with a nice coffee shop serving breakfast. Some noice from the traffic outside.

First off, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. They upgraded me to a junior suite that was a great room, spacious and comfortable. The property was pretty quiet, in spite of the fact that there were quite a few other guests there. I'd definitely stay here again.

Friendly staff at check-in. The rooms are spacious and clean, so you will feel comfortable. However, the rooms got only showers... It's a quite location and next by is a nice shopping area with restaurants, if you don't want to drive or walk too far. However, the room prices are on the higher side. Enjoy your stay!!

On a rainy winter's day in Goleta, our family had a good time at the Courtyard Goleta. We enjoyed the pool even in the rain; the pool was pretty warm and the spa was relaxing. We were pleasantly surprised to find out at the front desk that our room had been upgraded--this despite the fact that we had used points...

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....
