Santa Barbara’s Sister City

Your best bet for the ultimate Santa Barbara stay

At our hotel in Santa Barbara's sister city of Goleta, you're just minutes from the boutiques, galleries and cafes of Santa Barbara's State Street, an easy, beach cruiser pedal (yes, we have those too) to Goleta Beach and other area beaches, and only a half hour from the fabled vineyards of Santa Barbara County. Whether you're in search of California cuisine, that special piece of art or just a gorgeous sunset paired with a craft cocktail, you’re ideal positioned for the ultimate Santa Barbara experience. But you also may choose never to leave, as The Goodland is the ideal Goleta hotel for a fun filled retreat.
