Holiday Weekend in Santa Barbara

My stay over the 4th of July weekend at the Hotel Goleta was anything but ideal. The hotel is undergoing complete renovation and the front desk/check in is in a trailer house in the parking lot. I cannot believe that i paid so much for a place like this and was not informed of the state of the hotel nor given any type of refund. To get to my room I had to walk through a hallway that had signs reading "hard hat area" with rooms that were being gutted and a wall full of furniture that was covered in plastic (major construction zone). The actual room was nice and the bed comfortable but the walls are paper thin and you can hear absolutely everything from neighboring rooms, ongoing construction and the outside pool area. Don't plan on sleeping in as construction will wake you up early in the morning. Terrible!!!

terrible hotel

Under construction beware jack hammers etc. They did help me find another hotel so I appreciated that but they should not expect anyone to stay in a construction zone

Decent hotel

The Hotel Goleta was alright. It was pretty expensive for only staying one night and the hotel was going through renovations at the time so the parking lot was a mess. The room itself though was nice and the bed was comfortable. The air conditioner worked well and my husband and I slept really good. Maybe it will be better when the renovations are complete.

RENOVATIONS ARE GREAT

Currently under renovation. The renovated rooms are excellent. This will be a very nice place once construction is complete. Paid too much for the room but everything in SB was way overpriced for the Summer Solstice celebration.

Do NOT stay here

They are inviting guests even though they are in full construction mode with trucks and workers working from dawn to dusk. I had to try three rooms before finding one that wasn't as noisy as the others. Some had wi fi and others did not. There are NO amenities. They had to be called to clean the room, and they did not replace the shampoo or lotion, which had been used. They provide no conditioner and no blankets. No pool, no grass, no help with bags, no coffee, nothing. And it's next to the freeway. Pretty bad all the way around.

Don't bother

There was construction going on, I heard pounding until at least 10:30p.m. We had exactly one towel, no wash cloths and the plaster /wall paper was peeling off of the bathroom wall above the toilet. It was also quite noisy, could hear people above us.

Average Hotel

Hotel was under construction when I visited. The pool area was closed. Rooms were clean but could use touch ups, for example a few of the electrical outlets did not work.
