We stayed 4 nights for a 50 year reunion of UCSB college friends. Best Western Plus is easily accessible from US 101, a short drive to campus or the city of Santa Barbara. Rooms clean, beds comfy, breakfast area well lit and spacious. We made great use of the garden like courtyard for sharing memories and planning the future. Front...

Very nice, spacious, and newly renovated room. The pool area was especially attractive. We were surprised at how plentiful the complimentary breakfast was, right down to omelets and waffles. While it isn't a 5 star plush hotel, it is a very comfortable hotel at a fair price

This hotel was a disappointment. The hotel seems nice, the breakfast area is nice, the hotel staff is friendly, but the room where we stayed was a let down. It was small, the TV signal didn't work properly. (Hot HD). The bathroom was outdated and small. Perhaps we stayed in an area that is not renovated. Be aware of this...

Dear Thelmo T, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I am so sorry that your stay was less than satisfactory. It looks as though you stayed with us back in June of this year, and at that time the hotel was not completely done with renovations. It seems as though you may have stayed in a...

Stayed there because it is conveniently located near UC Santa Barbara and the Inn is well kept with very good staff. Easy access from and to the freeway. Also very near shopping which is just down the street.

BW South Coast is our go to for all of our visits to the Santa Barbara area. Location is perfect for our trips to UCSB. Stay on the backside of the building if you don't like loud music as the hotel to the north often has concerts.

We had to catch an early morning flight from Santa Barbara Airport, and after seeing the high prices for hotels directly in SB, I looked to the neighboring city of Goleta. We didn't have a chance to use the pool or amenities, but the grounds were very well kept, and we were pleased to have picked this place. Given that...

Spent four nights at this Best Western in Goleta. I have stayed at a few Best Westerns in the past, and this one was the best-appointed one of all --- there were extras here that I hadn't seen at other BW's, such as the room safe, the full array of DVD's, magazines, books, and newspapers.

I was disappointed with the room. It cost, with tax, $358 for a small suite with 2 queen beds in a very small room. The suite was supposed to be refurbished, but there was a rather unattractive loveseat in the living area and no other seats except for the dining table, which had 4 chairs. An ugly rug was underneath...
