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 the place still 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 — the hotel calls it Social Hour — gives travellers the chance to mingle while enjoying free (yes, free) wines by the glass. DJs, game night, live music 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 also find a little extra inner peace in poolside yoga classes or burn off that extra cocktail in the fitness centre.

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 neighbourhood chock-full of wine bars and art galleries.

Room wasn't ready on time, which was really frustrating (no wonder they give you beer at check in). Hanging by the pool was nice as was the fire pits at night. Room was comfortable enough, but bathroom wasn't updated like the bedroom furnishings were. So, of course the pictures made it look better than it actually was.

You should strive to have your rooms ready for check in. I noticed that I was not the only group sitting around waiting for your team to get their act together.

We had a lovely stay and time at the Kimpton after a day of visiting Santa Barbara. Our room was comfortable and even had a record player so we could listen to a Christmas Album. It was a nice touch. The room and location was perfect for what we were looking for.

The property was very inviting, relaxing, and with a variety of areas (game lawn, pool, firepit seating, on-site restaurant, meeting rooms, spacious foyer outside the reception area). We are lovers of dogs, so to see an occasional pooch walking by added to the laidback atmosphere. Our room was spacious and nicely updated--lovely decor and designer touches. Outpost, the on-site restaurant, had a nice variety of tasty dishes in a medium price range (menu posted outside the restaurant). We partook of & highly recommend the nightly (free) wine and appetizers in front of the relaxing foyer fire and s'mores by the firepits, the cornhole game on lawn area, and morning coffee out on the patio (also nice to read the provided newspapers by the foyer fire). It was too chilly for swimming, but the pool looked so inviting. There is a nice crowd at the restaurant nightly of both locals (a good sign) and hotel guests. Though we weren't far from the crowd, I was (delightfully) surprised to see how quiet our room was. Rated above all these amenitites were the helpful, interactive, and pleasant staff. Every staff member, from groundskeepers to on-site managers and hospitality staff, greeted us and asked if we needed anything. The chef walked through as we were eating his blistered shishito peppers, and he took the time to tell me exactly how to make them at home. We felt pampered and well-attended our entire stay. We went for relaxation, and we got it. Highly recommend.

Recommend for relaxation and/or romance (ours), families, and business (the rooms are very quiet and they have dedicated meeting rooms). Restaurant is appropriate for all attendees from casual bar hopping to high-quality dining. Lots of room for large groups both inside and out on the semi-enclosed patio.
