“Great Experience”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

This Hampton Inn is a great place to stay when visiting the Santa Barbara area. It is very clean, well appointed and a super friendly staff. We stayed one night going up the California coast and another night on the way back. The second time we stayed, my wife had a back problem and had to hobble up to the room. A few minutes later Yvonne (one of the staff members) came to the room with a goody basket and well wishes for a speedy recovery. Talk about service. Yvonne and the other staff are to be commended. The free breakfast was also great with a large variety of items and the evening chocolate chip cookies were to die for. There is also a business center and small exercise room. The hotel is not on the freeway so is relatively quiet. If you don't want to break the bank and stay at one of the large resorts in Santa Barbara, I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel was very clean and a good workspace in the room but it lacked a selection of tv channels and no glassware. Area surrounding hotel definitely questionable. Hotel very clean though and service fine. Go to state st. In Santa Barbara if you want a real meal.

Very nice hotel in an old part of town, quite a great surprise! Lovely large rooms, great breakfast and very clean hotel? And only a few minutes to the beautiful downtown Santa Barbara! Also very close to the university of Santa Barbara

We came to visit UCSB and stayed here which was only 7 miles away. The room was very comfortable - - we had one of the suites with 2 rooms and it was huge. Pool was great! The people were very nice - - good breakfast. Santa Barbara was a short drive - - went to State Street for shopping and dinner. Was a perfect one day/night in this area!

I have stayed here off and on for about 6 months. From day 1 I have had the warmest welcome and the friendliest staff ever!!!! I was sick the other day, called the front desk and Advil, Tylenol & Emercen C was at my door in 20 sec. I'm going to miss my hugs and the camaraderie dearly! I feel like I have made friends for life ;)

We recently stayed here for one night on a road trip up the coast. It was clean, had nice rooms, a yummy breakfast and the staff was friendly.

This is a very nice hotel in Goleta right outside Santa Barbara which makes it a bit cheaper yet convenient right off the 101. Nice modern rooms & free breakfast. The location is not a touristy area or anything like that. It sits on a busy street across from a gas station and some dumpy looking businesses, but the hotel itself is very nice.

Room Tip: Top floor away from the busy street facing the pool.
