The rooms are very nice and comfortable. I love all the space and separate living room and bedroom in every room. The free cooked to order breakfast can't be beat. The grounds of the hotel are also very nice and relaxing. The lawn, trees and pool area are very nice.

The happy hour each nice with free wine, beer and appetizers is a very nice touch as well.

I miss not having an on site gym but you can buy a pass to nice local gym for a nominal fee.

If your staying in the area, you will really enjoy staying at Pacificia Suites.

It only they had a hotel loyalty program, it would be perfect!

Took my parents here for their wedding anniversary. I liked the idea that the bedroom was separate from the rest of the living space. At first, I wanted a room with a kitchen, but at Pacifica Suites, you don't need one! Let me tell you why... They have a delicious complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast each morning complete with your choice of pancakes, waffles, toast, eggs, bacon or sausage (they even have turkey bacon! yum!). Of course, there are the continental breakfast items as well. Then on Monday through Thursday evenings, there's a complimentary wine & beer reception complete with appetizers. Our visit was during the week, and there weren't very many guests, so often times we had the pool, jacuzzi and even wine reception to ourselves for awhile! And to top it off, they have a randomly selected daily "Guest of the Day". The guest's name is displayed in a decorative frame, and they get a little goodie bag (just a bottle of water & some chips), but the idea is really sweet! And yes, I was the guest of the day!! Such a small gesture was so endearing to me. Staff was very nice and accommodating! And it's only a 7 minute drive to Downtown Santa Barbara. Love this place! I'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: - There's a school behind the hotel, so if you come during the week, try to get a room closer to...

really nice hotel at nice location.
although it's not in Santa Barbara, it's very close to freeway, and less than 10 min drive from downtown Santa Barbara.
nice spacious rooms n good breakfast..
although they don't have a buffet, you get a list of items, you select whatever you want and they will prepare it for you.
It works better than buffet, but in busier times - between 9 m 10, you may need to wait a bit to get your breakfast, also there are limited tables, so please try and avoid the busy time.
(even the hotel did mention this on their breakfast menu, so we went in early)
overall really nice stay.

Room Tip: all rooms are good, but try staying downstairs if you've heavy bags to carry on upper floor, as...

Dear Prabs C,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor. Our breakfast is a great amenity, and we appreciate your compliments. Because all items are made fresh and cooked-to-order, there may be wait times depending on the volume of guests dining with us. Since all of our items are made fresh, the delicious fare and friendly service are always worth the wait! We hope to see you again soon.

Sincerely,

We were in two suites for my daughter's wedding and were there for five nights! The pool, the grounds, the beautiful landscaping, the entire atmosphere is more like a mini-resort than a hotel. We all loved the breakfast, the pool, the evening weekday reception, fresh cookies, apples and coffee in the lobby . . . Extremely clean, up to date, and the staff was amazing. They genuinely worked at meeting any request, were accessible and responsive! This is the best option in this area, by far!

We recently stayed at the Pacifica during a weekend youth softball tournament. The hotel was an unexpected treat! The rooms were clean and quiet, the linens fresh, and there was plenty of room for the three of us. Several families stayed here and the girls loved the pool after a long day of games! The staff was very friendly and the free breakfast was another treat. If you are looking to stay in for dinner, order Woodstock's Pizza - really good and they deliver! We would definitely stay here in the future.

I have stayed at Pacifica Suites on several trips and this hotel shines in virtually every way. The suite-style rooms are very clean, nicely furnished, great beds, and worth mentioning again - CLEAN! Love that the rooms have windows that open for fresh air, and small balcony or patio that seats two people. The shower head has great water flow, and a curved curtain for a roomy shower. The property is simply beautiful, with large trees and lush landscaping, plenty of parking, and the pool area is large, very clean. A lovely oasis. But the best part of this hotel deal is the FULL breakfast provided every day, INCLUDED in your room rate. Eggs made to order, bacon, sausage, yogurt, pastries, cereals, juices, and really good coffee - regular coffee & latte/cappuccino machine. Also, 5-7pm in the evenings they serve complimentary beer, wine, soft drinks, and a lovely appetizer spread (hummus, salami, cheese, salsa, chips).
The staff has always been very friendly, very helpful. Just an all-around great experience and you can't beat the rate for this quality (My most recent stay was $215/night). Keep it up, Pacifica Suites!

This is a great family hotel. The suites are very clean and spacious for a family of 4. Wine and appetizers are served nightly; as well as cookies for the kids. The staff was more than accomodating and very hospitable. We would definitely stay here again!
