location was decent 346 for a motel?
Lovely decor, but what's better are their attentions to details. There's a happy hour every afternoon, activities, and in your room a record player and an ipod doc, for those in to retro or modern. What a great hotel!
Liked the newly renovated rooms and decor Didnt like that the entire property was a construction site. I think a huge discount should have been offered for vacationing at a construction site and having to check into a construction trailer. Was shocked upon arrival. The place is called hotel goleta but should be called motel goleta as it is a half renovated motel.
Loved the decor and design of the rooms. The staff was also quite friendly.
Goodland Hotel Goleta was awesome! The staff was super accommodating and I am definitely going back again. The place was so tastefully decorated and the food at the Outpost was pretty damn good. Love it! Nothing!
I stayed there only one night but me and my family planed to have another trip there with our friends. It had a unique design and professional staffs.
The record player in the room was awesome. There was nothing that I didn't like
Excellent customer service in all aspects of the hotel. Checkin was awesome. Service at the restaurant and bar was great. It's a decent value in the Santa Barbara area. I've never been to a Kimpton prior but from my friends descriptions of other Kimptons this one is their budget friendly version where there's still a lot of style for the money though. It feels like a re-vamped 70's hotel that it is. I wish they had spent a little more money on replacing the door and window to something more sound proof and secure. You can see the outside between the door and the doorframe. For some reason you have to pull up on the door handle to open the door which made us think that the door was malfunctioning when it would open the normal way. For a new remodel there seems to be a bit more wear and tear than expected but maybe that's part of the 70's modern industrial design. The restaurant manager was berating his employees in front of the customers, which was really sad as the employees were super nice and helpful.
We arrived to find that the hotel was under construction. Not just a few discreet rooms, but the entire main lobby and a majority of the ground floor. There were construction workers everywhere. Dumpsters and trash were indiscreetly lying about the parking lot and grounds. Loud pounding, hammering, and skill saws began promptly at 8:00 am. Nowhere was it mentioned either on the hotel's website or on kayak's website that the hotel was under construction. In fact, the website stated that the hotel was "newly renovated". We visited the front desk staff, which could be found in a trailer in the hotel' sparking lot, and we're refunded $50.00 per night for the false advertising.
Loved the in room entertainment - a turntable with an album collection library - happy hour a bonus pool towels gym all adequate staff super freindly and helpful...eager to meet needs..service at its best...accompdations perfectly adequate - basic if you need a true description - but all you need in a beach town...
Nothing More motel than hotel Old, ugly, run-down Bad location Under construction
Hotel was quirky & fun! Doors to room were not sealed all the way-you could see light coming in from gaps
The rooms were very clean, the staff was helpful and friendly and the breakfast was very good The ice maker on both the 1st and 2nd floor were broken the entire weekend. You had to go up to the 3rd floor to get ice. Not terrible just inconvenient
The staff is friendly and helpful. Two bottles of water and daily breakfast are included. Free parking is free. The rooms are clean. Walls seem thin -- I could hear TV and voices from the next room. The windows don't have blackout curtains.
One of the cleanest hotels that we've stayed in while visiting Goleta.
For the price I paid that was terrible. everything was minimal. The breakfast was unhealthy.
Dropped my friend off at ucsb and helped him move so I needed a place to stay The smell was horrible. It was a non smoking room but it smelled like smoke! The shower was ridiculously small. For $150 it was definitely not worth it.
close to mall; good location; swimmingpool; claen expensive for such a simple hotel.But all hotels and motels are expensive in Santa Barbara, so this was the best choice for us.Breakfast was simpel, but that's what most motels are serving....simple breakfast (and awfull coffee!!!)
Close to the airport (2 min. drive) Very small room. Older fixtures. Chipped, cracked bathroom flooring and lower walls. Needed paint job. Felt like a "tired" facility overdue for update. Very poor value for the money spent.
Clean room. Good location. AC unit in the room is too loud.
It's was close enough to the ucsb campus so we could visit with our son and that was the primary purpose of our trip.
It suited our needs. Quite noisey
Our room was large, clean, neat. and up-to-date. It was nicely decorated. Bathroom was clean. We also used the workout facilities. The equipment was adequate and basic (i.e. one stationary bike, 3 treadmills, one elliptical machine, and weights). The hotel was fine, however, breakfast was not included. We bought breakfast at the hotel.
Location close to campus. Not many other options, so...I'm sure it's ok, just frustrating visit for me due to issues listed plus a couple not listed. Disappointing for new hotel. Halls smelled of rotten eggs or sulfur. Outside keyed entry would re lock before you could open it. Required second person. Staff told me to just walk around to front. Pool deck was slippery and poorly lit at night.
its clean and comfortable should have full breakfast with the price I get this;)
Clean rooms and overall well-maintained environment. Ample parking, free wifi, comfortable beds. Only downside would be distance to downtown Santa Barbara, but the drive is easy and not much traffic.
Most everything. The dirty bedspread but they replaced it,
The Hotel provided a lot of needs without leaving the hotel no
Hotel need to improve on they breakfast and hotel need NEW BED
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
i have stayed everywhere in santa barbara and this place is the nicest. super clean, great staff and brand new. Best hotel in santa barbara
The picture is COMPLETELY accurate, the room looks exactly as shown. There is an additional 3 seat table under the TV which both beds face. You can't hear the neighbors or the noise from the street. The AC is not loud enough to disturb sleep like I have experienced before in other hotels. The non-carpeted floors is a good thing to note in case you were expecting to throw down a blanket and pillow for someone who didn't want to share a bed. Free coffee in the morning and a pool, it was the perfect spot for what we needed!
Walking distance to restaurants and necessities Poor bed, small space, no hair dryer, one mirror, stayed in two different rooms and one had lousy TV and bad wifi connection, too loud to hear traffic at 2-4 am, not enough pillows on bed. Room was very clean so tolerated inconveniences
Cheapest in the area. Walking distance to plenty of places to eat or buy amenities. Mattress was a rock, bed sheets were sandpaper. We could easily hear the TV next door and every single person that walked by outside the room. No separation between toilet and rest of bathroom (sink and mirror). Wifi cost extra.
Clean and simple Very little toiletries no shampoo
Clean and predictable, which is GOOD! You can count on Motel 6 to be the same generally everywhere. Don't like paying for wi-fi. That's silly in this day and time.
Price Staff flexibility to give us a different room even though I accidentally only booked one bed but obviously a family cannot sleep in one queen size bed. Even though they were completely booked they made it happen. met all my expectations for a Motel 6
not anything small dirty rooms. noise. would NEVER stay again
