“great start to a holiday”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

Spent the first night here after arriving in the U.S. It was well worth the drive to stay away from the hustle and bustle of L.A. We had a room with 2 queen beds plus a separate sitting room. Breakfast was included in the tariff and there was the choice of inside or outside sitting. It was a pity we only had one night - with a heated pool and lovely gardens it would have been a nice few days to relax if we had the time.

Stayed here our first night in the US after flying in from Australia and driving up from LA. The hotel was a welcome surprise, the gardens were beautiful and the separate living space perfect for us to relax in and get over the long flight.

The staff were helpful in advising us somewhere to go for dinner on the water and provided a printout of directions. In the morning the breakfast was fantastic, being able to getting it cooked to order and sitting outside was a great way to start the day.

I'd stay here again if I'm ever in the area again!!

We stayed at Pacifica Suites while attending Family Weekend at UCSB. The hotel is very conveniently located near the school and close enough to Santa Barbara. The rooms were comfortable and the amenities were well suited for this type of getaway or even for a longer stay. Our kids really enjoyed the breakfast! Pets are allowed at this hotel and I was impressed at how the dog owners seemed responsible and courteous.

Room Tip: One suggestion: I would feel more at ease if the doors to the buildings with the rooms were locked...

We stayed here one night on a Pacific Coast HWY trip beginning of November. Surprised to find out it was not really in Santa Barbara and you had to drive to to get to Santsa Barbara, but that was the only down side. This location provided a much better value. This is a suite hotel - separate bedroom and living room area. VERY nicely furnished, quiet and confortable - right down to the "swan towel origami" that was perched on the bed. Free WIFI in the room, plenty of free parking, delicious cooked to order breakfast and beutifully landscaped grounds - a very resort feel and very friendly staff. It was a bit too cool to use the pool but it was located in a private beautifully landscaped courtyard. I would stay here again in a heartbeat - wish they had more of this chain along our route.

OMG! Much to my delight, this hotel surpassed my expectations. The grounds are beautiful. The pool looked inviting, but was to cool for us to swim. However there were a few rackets. Although close to the freeway we heard no noise at all. The room comes with extra pillows, and blankets. It also has a mini refrigerator. The room is appointed with two flat screen T.V's (nice size too). The bed and many pillows were extremely comfortable (even with my bad back...lol!). The only drawback I have is the made to order hot breakfast is not all you can eat, and no elevator. However, there are all you can eat cereals, pastries, coffe, yes, and fruit; and remember to ask for a first floor room. Outside of this, excellent stay and I will stay again.

The only reason I did not rate this the highest rating is because for us on this particular trip, it was a 10-15 drive to downtown Santa Barbara. Other than that, it was great. We were in room 241, about as far as you can get to the lobby and fairly close to the exit ramp of highway 231, but the road noise was not bad at all, especially with the room fans on. These are real suites, two separate rooms plus a bath. Room was nicely furnished and very clean. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful for things in the area to see and do. The property is with 1-2 miles of UCSB and the airport. The rate comes with a full hot breakfast with made to order eggs, omelettes, etc. Plenty of good, hot coffee selections, cereals, juices. The property is well wooded and with a sense of seclusion with the mature trees surrounding it. Would definitely come again.
