Very Good 8.0 From 394 reviews

Fair 4.0
Bad service
We arrived at 3:30pm for our 4pm check in. They said our room would be available at 4pm. They gave us a key to the pool so we can wait there and they would call me when our room was available. At 4:50, no call yet so I went to ask the receptionist who mentioned it was going to be another 15 minutes. 5:05, still no room. I went back at 6pm and another lady found a room for me. I wondered if I didnt show up to the lobby, will they actually have called me to let me know a room is available? It seemed like two other parties were also waiting for their room by the pool.

Not bad but priced a bit high for what you get
What other reviews say is true -- it is a renovated motel, and because of that the rooms are all motel style. The photos lead you to believe the rooms have more decorations and furnishings, but it's all pretty standard. That said, it's a nice renovation, the decor is in good taste, and everything is clean. The bed is comfortable and I slept well. However, I thought the price is a bit high for what you get. But maybe that's just Santa Barbara pricing, or the cost of the renovation. And dogs stay free so that's a plus!

Good condition, High price
this place was below standard. never coming back. during checkin the staff member spoke like a machine. absolutely no common courtesy. room was small. barley had space to walk to the bathroom. PRICE IS TOO HIGH compared to the condition of the room, building and general ground areas. VERY VERY disappointed.

Weekend Getaway
Grounds are nice. Staff is great. Beds are terrible, hard and lumpy. Pillows were miserable. The one chair in the room had a flat cushion and the ropes around the arm rest dig into your arm. The tv is ridiculously small. Bathroom is not terrible, but nothing to write home about. Oh, and there is no jaccuzzi. Pool isn't warmed enough to get into it when the weather is under 75 degrees.

great place for a covid getaway!
This was our second visit to the Kimpton Goleta. We had a great time and felt very safe with their Covid protocols. Things were paired down for for that reason, but less decor in the room and limited restaurant hours really didn’t matter to us. The staff was so friendly and helpful at every interaction, and we truly appreciated it. Happy the pool was open too! Thanks, Kimpton! We’ll certainly be back!

Good 6.0
A cute place. Staying during the time of Covid can be tricky but it would’ve been nice to know that the bar and restaurant were both closed prior to booking this non-refundable trip. Beds were small and uncomfortable. Room was clean. Pool was very nice and the office staff was exceptional.
