Holiday Inn Santa Barbara Goleta Hotel Review

: Far removed from Santa Barbara’s main tourist attractions, yet convenient to the airport and university (both of which are actually in the city of Goleta), this practical hotel offers the basics with no razzmatazz. Free high-speed wireless Internet and oversized executive work desks please business travelers. The resort-style swimming pool and an on-site restaurant make the property a hit with families. Though you won’t find hipsters crowding the bar at any Holiday Inn, this property does have a relatively nice one: an al fresco setup with a cozy fire pit as its centerpiece. The 160 rooms are stocked with basic amenities, and the hotel provides complimentary shuttle service to the airport and train station. Traffic noise is something to consider, as the hotel is located just off Highway 101, among strip malls and chain restaurants. While relatively low rates are available, you will have to drive about fifteen minutes to reach the Santa Barbara waterfront.
