"Excellent hotel in the middle of everythinf"
This hotel was phenomenal. Absolutely everything and even more than we wanted it to be. The rooftop pool/bar was fantastic. The hotel is close to anything you could ever want to do/see in Santa Barbara.

Best Western Plus South Coast Inn

5620 Calle Real, Goleta 93117 - Map
I really only slept there and checked in very late. The refrigerator had defrosted and left a puddle in the vanity area; I wasn't initially sure of the source of all the water. The staff was very apologetic and willing to move me to another room - not necessary. The room was very clean and spacious. Next time I go to Santa Barbara I will definitely consider staying there. The pool looked very clean and inviting and the location was convenient for me with my daughter in Isla Vista.

"beauty nestled into the hillside"
This resort is very gracious and lovely. The gardens and grounds are park like. If you have the good fortune to have a room with a view of the ocean (there aren't many), it's quite a site!!! The complimentary shuttle into Downtown SB is a huge plus - convenient and easy to access. The drivers are helpful and friendly and can often offer a small excursion through the area to help getting oriented. By using this service, we never had to contend with parking our own car or the inconvenience of roaming randomly in unfamiliar places. Rather than regret being in the center of things, we found returning to our hillside retreat a refreshing respite from the congestion of the inner city.

"Good Basic motel"
Did two nights here. If you're looking for all the plush bells and whistles, this is NOT your place. However, I will say it is in the middle of town, so you're really within super easy walking distance of everything. Our room was very dated, but clean. Beds are on the soft side, but I still slept very well. Air conditioner worked, but hey - you can open a window also. Sometimes that's the best anyway. Good ole' fresh air! But I digress... Never really saw any staff, so I cannot really comment either way, but like I said the property was clean and very quiet at night. My only down side would be the price, but you ARE in the middle of Solvang, so you're going to pay for not very much. Would I stay again? Probably, because all hotels here a way over priced!

I don't normally do reviews and surveys but in this case I am compelled to do so. Our stay was nothing short of perfect! The entire hotel is beautiful and very well kept. The staff is very nice and bend over backwards to please the guests. The restaurant Petros is also first class in service and Best of all we got a great deal from Expedia! Loved it.
