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...

Marriott is always well managed. Great service, rooms are clean, great breakfast and they are always greatly located. Marriott is has a great room configuration, nice use of space and interior. However, they could offer us rooms with two beds.

Close to ucsb , easy freeway access and has a nice shopping mall nearby with coffee, restaurants. Other nice coffee shops nearby as well Lobby is spacious and business center roomy with fast computers and printers. Bed was not very comfy (needs to be replaced I think). And a few pillows didn't have pillow covers.

Requested 1 king, got two queens... No room upgrades for a 4 year platinum.... No breakfast coupon for the lousy bistro..... This place stinks. Drive 30 miles further up north to the Marriott in Buellton. That is only a 3 star. This place blows.

Nice hotel and new but location not close to Santa Barbara attractions bit it is close to the airport. They do have a shuttle but they do not shuttle before 7:00 AM which can be a problem if you have an early flight.

I was the co-organizer of a reunion of nearly 90 friends who graduated from nearby UCSB in the 1960-70s. It was a 3-day event that with extensive support from the Hotel's local management became an occasion we all treasured and will remember forever. I and my co-organizer had no experience in planning such an event so we could not have...

Very, very nice new hotel with excellent, friendly staff. Quiet and clean, with great internet. Pretty much everything I could ask for in a place to stay while on the road. Located out of town and very convenient to the airport. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for one night to visit UCSB. It appears to be one of the newest hotel in the area and we had a pleasant stay. Due to the limited number of hotels in Goleta, the rates are extremely high. Not sure why more chain hotels don't open up in this area. Overall a pleasant stay.

We spent two nites at Courtyard Santa Barbara Goleta this past weekend as part of a wedding that was taking place at a local resort. The price at $329 a night was expensive for a Courtyard but everything near Santa Barbara is pricey so no surprise. The property is nice, service is friendly, parking is easy. Rooms are clean but...

As soon as we arrived we realized this was a newer property, everything was in perfect condition. The staff at the front desk were friendly and extremely helpful! They gave us an excellent room/suit on the second floor. After we had dinner locally we went to the hot tub and met several very nice people that had children attending UCSB....
