Beautiful room and delicious breakfast. Loved the garden setting. Close to UCSB. Only drawback was the water is well water which is discolored sometimes. It wasn't that way on my earlier visit, but this time it was. The staff assured me it is fine and they test it frequently, and we didn't get sick.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Breakfast sets this apart from it's peers"
My family and I stayed in 4 different hotels in four nights as we made our way down the California coast. We stayed at Pacifica Suites during our stop in Santa Barbara. Overall, I would say that Pacifica Suites compares favorably to other hotels in its price point in terms of cleanliness and room condition. The real difference is their made-to-order […] breakfast vs the standard continental or warm/cold buffet. At Pacifica, you are provided a slip with several hearty or healthy combinations that you fill out and hand to the cooks. In about 5 minutes you have a hot fresh breakfast that is far superior to the usual buffet. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It was excellent. The only downside was that our room was close to the street, so it was a little noisy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to UCSB."
Very nice hotel close to UCSB and the Goleta Bleach. Just a 15 minutes drive to Santa Barbara. It was clean and the staff was pleasant. Suite size was adequate. The breakfast included in your price was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Will stay here again"
The complimentary breakfast was delicious. The rooms accommodated me, my hubby, 2.5 yr toddler who slept with us in a King bed and our 6month old daughter who slept in a pack n play which was provided. Unlike most hotels, the walls are thick, so we couldn't hear our friends next door at all. And we didn't disturb the infant in the bedroom while we watched […] TV in the living room. The bed was super comfy and the shutters kept light out. Will definitely stay here again. Very pleased. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

no reason to stay here unless you're traveling w/ several children or have reason to be in immediate (<3 miles) area…..some of 'features' made me wonder at what point during planning/construction they knew this was going to be a suites hotel……perhaps it was a poorly conceived conversionGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Pacifica Suites Dear spd, I am so sorry to hear that your stay with us did not meet your expectations. The Pacifica Suites was conceived and built as an all-suite hotel, and its design was intended to mirror the historical landmarks on our property, and showcase the beautiful heritage plants and trees that have grown here since the 1800's. Although our guests typically enjoy our unique setting and design, I regret that it had any negative impact for you. I wish you well in your travels, and hope for the opportunity to welcome you back for an improved experience. Warm regards, Tiffany Lesperance General Manager
"Perfect location for me and very comfortable."
The location was ideal. My son is a student at SBCC and resides nearby. The Pacifica is located close to school, down town, the airport and roadways, specifically 101 and 154 ( the road to the wineries). I enjoyed breakfast in the morning, the pool, the landscaping and the suite layout. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were polite and helpful. […] I will make Pacifica Suites my home when visiting Santa Barbara. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Will return again...."
Easy to find/get to, excellent breakfast cooked to order, fresh cookies daily at the front desk, quiet, friendly staff, steered us to great restaurants/sightseeing, accommodated special needs/requests, having a living room and separate bedroom was ideal for entertaining family, jacuzzi was clean and refreshing...we will be returning again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel, but no help from the front desk."
We booked a deluxe king suite which cost us a little more and included free breakfast and a balcony. However, when we went to our room there was no balcony. When I asked the desk they told me all they had was a traditional room. They also gave me some breakfast ordering coupons, so I assumed the breakfast was included. When I got home I found that my […] credit card had been charged for an additional $20 for breakfast. The room was nice, but I would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Pacifica Suites Dear Greg, Thank you for staying with the Pacifica Suites during your recent visit to Santa Barbara. I am very sorry to hear that all aspects of your stay were not exceptional. Our full cooked-to-order breakfast is complimentary for all of our guests, and I apologize for any confusion there may have been regarding additional charges for your room. Because our breakfast is complimentary, this may have been a different incidental charges for your room. I hope that we might have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future and provide you with an improved experience. Warm regards, Tiffany Lesperance General Manager

My husband and I were visiting our son who is a UCSB student for three nights. We enjoyed our stay very much especially the made to order breakfast! This hotel was clean, roomy, and quiet.

Warm Regards, Tiffany Lesperance General Manager
This place was nice to start off. Very comfortable beds, something I look for in a stay, is next to a freeway and maybe a only a bit noise during peak traffic hours but for the most part I was able to sleep comfortable with a room right next to the freeway, also I look for a place that has free parking and rest assured it is free here! Wi-Fi isn't that […] fast during peak hours but decent in early mornings and late night's. Water in toilet was a slight Brown for any given reason but shower and sink water appeared fine. Atmosphere at hotel is quite and friendly and breakfast is made to order and a little small for a active heavy eater such as myself but good nonetheless. I really enjoyed my stay, pool was nice and heated, and the staff was friendly. I gave this place 4 because I don't hand 5/5 out easily and should be reserved for outstanding no bad I can see in locations... All in all a good place to stay and feel like your out and away from the city even though you are right next to a freeway and near downtown Goleta it appears(not Santa Barbara) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel suite on beautiful grounds."
The hotel was easy to find, check-in was a breeze, and for the area, the price was reasonable. The added bonus was that hotel was nestled among trees, giving it a secluded resort feel. The suite we stayed in was clean and comfortable with all the usual amenities, even if the decor was a bit on the plain side. Even though the hotel is near the 217 and […] 101 freeways, we found it quite. Our balcony face the courtyard and was far enough away from the pool that noise was never an issue. All in all, Pacific Suites are well worth the money. My only quibble is that from the parking lot, you have to step through dirt and around small shrubbery to get to the entrance. You would think it would be easy to put a few stepping stones that lead toward the entrance. Maybe that was an isolated issue that only pertained to our group of suites, but it would help welcomed fix. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Gardeners Delight"
The grounds are incredible. Beautiful exotic plants. Used to be a nursery in the late 19th century. Well preserved old home on the grounds. Room was great too. Loved the made to order breakfast on the patio looking at those gorgeous grounds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Pacifica Suites Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Hotels.com. Many of the trees and plants on our property were planted in the 1800’s by the Sexton Family, and have a great historical significance not only to our grounds, but to the rich agricultural history of the area. We take great pride in cultivating and maintaining these plantings, and are so happy to know that it contributed to an exceptional experience during your stay. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back on your next visit to Santa Barbara. Warm regards, Tiffany Lesperance General Manager

This was our second stay at Pacifica Suites. We love the fact that there's a separate LR and BR. Very roomy and very quite even though we were on the street side.

Response by Pacifica Suites Dear Valued Guest, Thank you so much for thaking the time to review us on Hotels.com. We are glad to hear that your stay with us was enjoyable; however, I am very sorry for any discomfort caused to you by any pets staying at the hotel.

"Local chramer just slightly out of town"
We do a bit of "quickie" vacationing up and down the California coast and always like to stay in new places. One challenge we have when booking over the phone is we have a teenager and we prefer real Suites with separate sleeping areas that don't cost a King's Ransom. The layout at Pacifica Suites in Goleta was perfect with two rooms, two TV's and a […] bathroom/sink arrangement that allowed me to brush my teeth while my teen took a typical 20 minute shower. The only drawback is that the hotel is a little far from Downtown or the beach and there is really nowhere interesting within walking distance. If you can live with that then it's a great choice.
