Great hotel. Beautiful location.Posted Aug 18, 2014
wonderful. When we got there they had us on the 2nd floor but changed us immediately to the 1st floor when we explained my husband's recent knee surgery. No questions asked.

Nice room, bad servicePosted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Big and cozy room
Cons: Hire more people.
Location: 4th of July Celebration at the Nearby Girsh Park.
We stayed during the 4th July weekend, and the experience was bad. The heavily promoted breakfast was a terrible experience. There were no place to seat, everyone was fighting over tables. There were only 2 busser running the place, no host to direct people or staff to stock and refill all condiments and silverware. We had to pick up dirty plates and mugs from the people before us to seat on a table. It was a very stressful morning, and for the price of the room, we expected more service. We will not be back.

We stay here when visiting our daughter at college. Very comfortable and good value considering the competition. Good breakfast, nice grounds, nice pool, good staff. Will return.

Lots of land and well spread outPosted May 21, 2014
Pros: The breakfast was outstanding, the property itself well taken care of and a pleasure to walk around. The shower was a pleasure, too; nice hot water.
Cons: See above re furnishings.
Location: UCSB is close by. And, if you want a pleasant walk, the nearby Catholic Church has a huge property with a playground for small kids at the end.
This hotel is close to the freeways and to UCSB, but it needs to update the rooms a bit. The carpet needed cleaning, the couch and living room chair needed to be re-upholstered or replaced. But the breakfast was fabulous! Fresh omelets and the like, not generally seen in a motel.

Finally!! A nice hotel that doesn't cater to kids!Posted May 9, 2014
Pros: Almost everything.
Cons: Most of the rooms do not face the pool and lush center courtyard. Luckily, we had one that did for our stay and the pool should be cleaned daily.
This is a VERY nicely landscaped hotel, sitting right at the entrance and exit to SR 217 in Goleta, a small suburb on the north side of Santa Barbara. It consists of a number of buildings situated in a forested, beautifully landscaped area that was apparently originally a homestead (it even still has the original owner's house and viewing tower - both nicely restored - right next to the lobby building. Other than a nicely designed, extra large one bedroom suite on the top floor overlooking the pool, the thing we liked the best about this little gem of a hotel is that we didn't see or hear a child during our entire 3 day, 2 night stay!!! For us, this was priceless, but the cost of the room was quite reasonable for it's size, amenities, location and convenience to Santa Barbara while being far enough away to not sense the tourist traps of that larger sibling town. The location of Pacifica Suites was also much better for fast food selection, grocery shopping and such than being in Santa Barbara itself. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the fully cooked-to-order breakfast each morning and fresh cookies each evening were real pluses. Our only complaint was that the pool was full of debris both days, which we had to clean out on our own prior to getting in it, but having it completely to ourselves once clean and not having to content with bratty, screaming children was well worth that extra effort. We would return here in a heartbeat.
