“Great place to stay in Goleta”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

This is our go to place when we visit Santa Barbara and Goleta. We are "Marriott" lovers and try to stay at Marriott when ever we can. It is a new hotel and very nice. Out by the pool they have a wonderful place to sit and have drinks around a fire pit. Although it is always a bit to cold to use the pool, the pool area is very nice. Rooms have small frig and beds are comfy. Very pretty lobby and area to eat in with a little bistro area if you will for breakfast and a happy hour. I think you will be pleased to stay here. Hide a bed in room with King bed but with 2 kids it might be a little tight. We were just a couple.

Room Tip: We have stayed in the same room each time. It was off the pool area so we could just walk out to th...

My fiance and I flew in for a wine pick-up party, and this hotel was right next to the airport so it was very convenient. It is as nice as any other Courtyard by Marriott. Didn't spend much time in the hotel, but I'd definitely stay here again - mostly because it was so conveniently located. We were also able to go for a run along the beach from the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a courtyard side room. We were on the side of the soccer fields and it was a bit noisy in t...

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly—both probably helped by the fact that the property is new—but I was most pleased by ways that the Courtyard brand seems to be trying to make life easier and pleasant for guests. The shower was a wide stall (with a door, not a curtain); the door keys worked by waving them in front of the lock (instead of inserting or swiping); the lobby had double-high ceilings; the computers in the lobby were free to use (including to print); there was even a putting green in the courtyard area. I could do without the TV always being on in the lobby, but I'm not really a TV person. Other than that, I had no complaints. (I will say that the five-circle rating is relative to hotels of this level.) I also liked that the hotel was a couple blocks from Hwy. 101 (and not right on it), and you could walk to the big shopping center, home to various restaurants—many not that notable, but still, within walking distance.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back (on the west side) face a public soccer field—the players stopped as dusk ended, b...

Overpriced rooms and non personal service. More like a motel feel but charging prices like a higher end Marriott. Will not return here again and I travel twice a month to Santa Barbara for business. I was on hold for more than ten minutes so I just hung up.

I really enjoyed my night here in Feb. The hotel has only been open for 6 months, so everything is new, clean and fresh. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. Loved having a courtyard room that opened onto a putting green and fire pit. It even had a sliding glass door so I could get fresh air. This hotel is close to UCSB and the beach.

Room Tip: Get a room on the courtyard side for views, on the outside for a larger room

Really quite enjoyable. Nothing fancy but big clean room, good working tv and nice bed. Would have given it 5 out of 5 if the shower was a bit more accessible rather than too low in bath tub.

However, all in all, really good value for money. Would certainly return there!

Great location to Santa Barbara! Staff was very nice, hotel very clean. We only stayed a day, but will come back here again. Utilized the fitness center and staff helped with dinner recommendations. Located right off the highway, would suggest requesting courtyard side room for better view.
