About Kimpton Goodland, Goleta

10 minutes to beach

Kimpton Goodland is a 4-minute drive from highway 101/1 and a 15-minute drive from the Old Mission Santa Barbara in the city's center. It's less than a 10-minute drive from the hotel to Goleta Beach and to University of California Santa Barbara.

Fire pit and marshmallows

After swimming in the outdoor pool, enjoy drinks or roast marshmallows at the fire pit. Outpost Restaurant serves California cuisine. Enjoy an evening wine reception, as well as a 24-hour fitness center. Driven by an obsession with the current music, art, film, food, nightlife, and exercise trends, the Goodland features many forms of entertainment. Guests can enjoy music by emerging artists, screenings by indie filmmakers, art-related lectures, food festivals, performance art, and unique fitness experiences. On the weekends, a poolside DJ makes for a lively night. Trivia is held on the GoodBar Patio every night.

Goodland has the best Karma of any hotel in the area. Feels like someone actually cares about the place. Outpost restaurant is actually very good.

The Goodland was extremely cozy and quaint. The decor and the friendly staff made our experience so pleasant and fun. I will definitely recommend this adorable hotel to family and friends!

I've stayed at many Kimptons and unfortunately this was the least nice out of all. The room was tiny, the shower was tiny, in-room amenities were more like a motel than a hotel. The lobby. bar and restaurant were the only nice parts of the hotel, really!

Just OK, nothing to get excited about or recommend
The room was just ok, I certainly don’t it was worth the price we paid for it.
