People at front desk were nice and helpful however this place do need to invest in few carpet cleaners. Lots of old stains on the carpet and I bet some of the area (especially ceiling and corners) they never cleaned once.

This hotel in Goleta was extremely clean. My room was immaculate. The bed was comfortable. The room had Keurig, recycling, good air-conditioning, a refrigerator, a microwave, darkening blinds, and—really cool—electrical outlets on the bed frame. Soap products were in bottles on the wall—not my favorite but more and more common. The hotel’s hallways had a neutral palette, calming and nice. My only minor quibble is that the lobby did not offer newspapers or water cisterns. I hear the breakfast buffet was $20 and mediocre, There’s a rooftop bar and grill with good food. As a Hilton Honors gold member, I was offered 750 bonus points or a $10/day food credit. I compared $10 to the $30 I received recently in Berkeley and, given the Goleta hotel’s price point ($259 for Night #1 and $359 for Night #2), the Hilton points seemed like the better deal.
