Why We Love It

  • Boutique hotel just a 15-minute drive to downtown Santa Barbara
  • Free extras include nightly happy hour, yoga classes and in-room record players
  • S'mores are offered by the fireside
  • Surfer-cool vibe with lively poolside DJ sets on Saturdays and Sundays


The Goodland, located a 15-minute drive from downtown Santa Barbara, is part of the boutique Kimpton Hotel chain. A laid-back, retro-chic surf vibe sets this hotel apart from the typical Kimpton offering, but boasts the brand's signature attention to detail and quality of service. Classic surfboards pepper the hotel, which is accentuated by coastal wood and earth tones to create a warm beach feel.

Each guest room features a record player, and guests have access to a vinyl library where they can pick the perfect soundtrack for their stay. The nightly hosted happy hour -- they call it Social Hour -- gives travelers the chance to mingle while enjoying free (yes, free) wine by the glass. DJs, game night, tarot card readings and trivia night are also among the weekly offerings.

Play billiards or backgammon while sipping artisan cocktails in the Good Bar, or dine alfresco at the Outpost Restaurant, where a fresh, seasonal menu focuses on locally sourced ingredients.

Guests can find inner peace in poolside yoga classes or burn off that extra cocktail in the fitness center.

Hop on one of the hotel’s beach cruisers and pedal 10 minutes to Goleta Beach for a game of volleyball or a picnic, or make the short drive into Santa Barbara and check out the trendy “Funk Zone” neighborhood chock-full of wine bars and art galleries.

The room layout. The photos don't match the description of the rooms. I expected a bath tub with balcony. It wasn't very clear on the website.
