We stayed at Goodland a couple of nights ago and had a wonderful night. The rooms I believe have been recently renovated and they have done a great job. A chilled out beach vibe in the rooms goes perfectly with the decor of the whole property which is also nicely presented. Lovely gardens through out. We ate at the restaurant...

We love Kimpton hotels. This was another gorgeous, cozy hotel. Friendly, comfy and quirky. Enjoyed the Good Hour. Loved the record players in the room. Only wish is that they served breakfast during the week but there are lot's of places within walking or driving distance.

Let's get this straight. This motel is just a Holiday Inn from the 1960's. I have stayed here for 3 months straight in 2012 while working in Santa Barbara. You gotta stay in the back upper rooms if you want any quiet. The little pool is nice. The rooms in this hotel were at about $89 a night in 2012....

californiafoodie77, Thank you for the review from your stay at the Goodland. Well you are correct that the Goodland is a re remodeled Holiday Inn, many people like the design. However we understand that the Goodland is not for everyone. We would like to let you know we have repainted all of the doors, however, we did match the original...

Kimpton Goodland is a bohemian/surfer heaven. The atmosphere is hip, mellow, and surroundings unique. Bartender knows how to make a mean cocktail. We also loved the record player in our room, the social hour every night, and laying out by the gorgeous pool. Everything was perfect.

The best western has better rooms, better prices, and more experienced staff. Don't be fooled by the decor of the goodland. It's like putting lipstick on a pig and trying to pass it off as an upscale hotel. The plumbing is awful, we were checked into a room with a terrible odor coming from a drain, that they knew about....

We trusted the Kimpton brand for our short stay in Santa Barbara during our recent honeymoon through California. We were completely disappointed and would not recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing, comfortable getaway. The only enjoyable aspect of our stay was the pool area which is DJ-ed in the afternoon on the weekends. Everything else was completely...

The Goodland Hotel offers a fun, relaxed experience. Record players and records to check out to listen in your room. Great bar and food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all great! Yoga by the pool was fantastic. Drinks poolside even better!

This is a motel that has been repourposed as a "chic" hotel. Didn't work for me, and I won't be back. I did not appreciate the lack of anyone to assist me when I arrived or help with my bags. They were "nice" enough not to charge me a cancellation fee but seemed little interested in the fact that my...
