Fabulous 8.8 From 703 reviews

Fair 4.0
Unreachable staff with mediocre facilities.
We arrived around 9:30 in the night and we were given instruction on getting to our room. The room was clean and tidy. But there were not enough blankets or comforter. We were a party of 5 and one of us had to sleep on the sofa bed. The room was cold and there was no heater adjustment in the room. So, we requested for a blanket and we did not receive those. At around 10:45 in the night, I tried calling the front staff and was unable to connect. I tried multiple times and was not able to reach anyone. I slept in the cold and added extra layers of clothing for myself. The room came with 2 full sized beds, but the full size was on the smaller size since it was really cramped for the other to sleep in it. In the morning, we went to get breakfast and even though it was a made specially for you and I cannot blame the kitchen staff, the place was a zoo, and it was managed incompetently . Even getting a toast had to go to the kitchen, and since we went around 9:00 am, it was so crowded and there were not enough food, cups or drinks to go around. They out actually put out some of the things like toasting, and waffle making outside and concentrate on the bigger things like bacon, etc., Since we were vegetarian, my husband wanted a veggie omelet and they did not have any vegetables. That was ridiculous. The hotel should have prepared ahead depending on the number of guests. Shower only had cold water which we did not like either especially in December

Very good 8.0
close to UCSB
They first gave me a room with a view of the parking lot. But when asked they did move me. Being in Santa Barbara, why all the room doesnt have a view is beyond me. They do have shuttle service from airport and within 5 miles of the hotel. That being said, they wont take you to UCSB or downtown Santa Barbara. The taxi is about $20.00 to UCSB and $35.00 to the beach and downtwon Santa Barbara. There is a pool and hottub. Between 5-7 pm they have free wine and beer and appetizers in lobby. Staff is very friendly. The room has a seperate couch and TV area, so you dont have to just sit on the bed. Also a TV in bedroom area. It had a mini fridge and microwave. If you want lunch or dinner in your room they have a "room service type of delivery, but it is very expensive! Also the have a food delivery service you can access on your smart phone. They do have a free breakfast made to order which is very good. They do have bike you can rent to get around town. I would like to see them update the shower area. Its near airport but i didnt hear any planes while in room. Also didnt hear alot of noise in hallway. We were on second floor, so didnt hear anyone around our room either.

Good 6.0
Front desk personnel, including the supervisor had poor customer relations skills. Had a do not disturb sign on our door and at 10:30pm, while sleeping, there were two knocks at our door. I got up and answered and it was a staff member wanting to deliver a microwave! We didn't request one! The second day when we came back to our room, although they had cleaned it, they did not leave face cloths or hand towels. When I asked the cleaning lady down the hall she indicated that she was all out of them and I would have to call the front desk. For the Santa Barbara area the price was OK....$250 night and the room was large. Location relatively convenient 10-15 drive to wherever we wanted to go.

Good 6.0
Less than impressed
It surprises me that this hotel gets such high ratings. It is not a BAD hotel - it is just not a great hotel. I would rate it a 3.0 There are only stairs - no elevator. The grounds were littered with dead leaves and branches that looked to be at least a week old when I got there. 4 days later, they were still there! The interior halls are rather old and musty ( no windows or air) with rather grimy gold walls. Nothing pretty or attractive anywhere . The hall carpets were very used - pretty dirty. My room key was a ridiculous issue....11 keys during a 4 day stay. The key would just randomly quit working - which meant ANOTHER trip to front desk, usually with arms full of items. This hotel is located next to freeway and you will need to drive several miles to find decent eating places. The closest beach is also a couple of miles away. Not impressed - would probably not stay here on my next trip. There are better alternatives in the Santa Barbara area.

Exceptional 10.0
A Home Away From Home
We were evacuated from our home due to the Thomas fire and stayed at Pacifica for several nights. Because of air quality in the region we had to stay inside. The room was spacious and allowed us to spread out a bit. The garden view was lovely. The included "cooked to order" breakfast was excellent. One day we experienced a power outage and they even managed to cook our breakfast with no power. There was a small refrigerator in the room, but I wished for a microwave so we could bring in food to heat rather than having to go out for every meal. They had room service but it was pretty much Italian food, which is OK for a meal or two. The staff was very nice and helpful. It became a "home away from home" during a very stressful time.
