Pros: Great night's sleep. Friendly staff. Beautiful grounds. Fabulous hot breakfast. Loved it!
Location: This hotel is close to UCSB where our daughter attends school.
We began our stay with a friendly greeting by the lady behind the desk and warm cookies, straight out of the oven. The ground are beautiful. Our room was very clean and comfy. The bed and pillows were so comfortable that we lifted the sheets to see what kind of bed it was. The made to order breakfast was delicious!

Pretty grounds, close to the beach

Pros: I was impressed with the cleanliness of the room. I've stayed in many hotels that are priced higher that haven't been as clean
Cons: There was only a very minor glitch that was quickly remedied. We had to ask for more toilet paper. It came in 3 minutes
Location: The hotel is very close to the beach where there are nice places to eat
I chose this hotel based on the reviews of previous guests. I was very pleased, from the warm and sincere greeting at check in to the quick and painless check out. Every staff member I had dealings with was friendly and kind. The grounds are lovely with the added plus of having an historical landmark on site. The rooms was both clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and would gladly stay there again.

Lovely stay!

We enjoyed our spacious suite (we had our son along with us), the clean room and amenities, the delicious breakfasts--made to order!--the pool, hot tub, rental bikes and grounds. It's a bit pricey for us, but that's because of the area. We hope that we can return.

Perfect Romantic Anniversary Getaway

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, beautiful property, accomodating staff
Like a typical guy I waited to the last minute to book our anniversary hotel reservations. Not only did Pacifica Suites have a reasonably priced room on a beautiful property, they had an exceptional complimentary breakfast feast cooked to order! The staff was curteous and accommodating. When I mentioned the occastion, it was no problem to arrange a bottle of champagne, on the house!

Quiet, Friendly, good value

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet, lovely grounds, breakfast is high quality and very convenient, wine and cheese reception, free parking, overall very good staff service
Cons: only stairs no elevator, not as close to downtown or wharf as expected
Inside: Our suite was very comfortable and roomy, also the decor was appealing. We had free Wi-Fi and the connection was flawless. I enjoyed having two nice televisions, one in each room. Outside: The grounds were lovely. The pool was average size and very clean. The breakfast was very good quality and quantity and so convenient. The wine, cheese and cracker reception was a real plus; good quality wines and soda for my underage son. The price is a bit high given that it is more in Goleta than Santa Barbara and, as said by someone else, off the beaten track. However, it is close to I-101 yet the freeway can not be heard. Nor could I hear the airport which is a short drive away. The first person I dealt with initially was unfriendly as I hoped to check in early. However when I returned at 3pm, the staff servicing me was excellent. All staff after that first interaction was excellent. If my travels took me back to Santa Barbara, and price and location was not an issue, then I would certainly stay here again. I have and will continue to recommend the Pacifica Suites Santa Barbara to others.

Nice and Quiet - Room neat and clean - kind of pricey but would recommend

Pros: Quiet
Went wine tasting and reserved rooms at Pacifica Suites for ourselves and another family. Rooms were nice, well kept and the place was very quite. Was a little pricey but the out of the beaten path, well kept rooms, nice staff and quiet location was worth the stay.

I have stayed in these suites numerous times and finally have decided to write a review! I love this place. It is quiet, the staff is friendly and the services are great. The rooms and pool and hot tub are clean. The breakfast is cooked to order and is delicious! The cooks do a great job. The rooms are large and private. I just love it here and the price is very good for the SB area. I would recommend this place to anyone! It is close to the freeway, so I would suggest requesting a room on the opposite side of the freeway. You cannot hear any traffic on that side. It is very convient for accessing anywhere you need to go in SB.

Best for UCSB location

Other reviews seem nit-picky. Overall, the hotel is excellent for the price. A no-kitchen 1 bedroom suite with breakfast for this rate is good for Santa Barbara. Location is next to the freeway but it did not bother us. If you are visiting UCSB, this is literally 5 minutes from campus...not walking distance but an easy drive over there. Fresh cookies at the front desk are a nice touch.
