The Goodland, a 15-minute drive from downtown Santa Barbara, is one of the newer properties from the boutique Kimpton Hotel chain. A laid-back, retro-chic surf vibe sets this hotel apart from the typical Kimpton offering, but boasts Kimpton’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 access to a Record Concierge to help guests pick the perfect soundtrack for their stay. The nightly hosted happy hour -- they call it Social Hour -- gives travelers the chance to mingle. DJs, live music, and movie nights are weekly features.

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 take a break from the party and 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.

Enjoyed Most: The beds were comfortable.
Other Comments: 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.

Enjoyed Most: The hotel staff was very nice
Other Comments: I have been at quite a few Kimpton hotels all over the country and never even considered the quality of the hotel to be anything but excellent. The GoodmaN is an Holiday inn and the upgrades to the hotel leave much to be Desired. I would never stay there again! The little coffee Shop on the premises was also out of everything!! Traveling with my granddaughter I would have liked to be able to eat there. By the way I was told there was a restaurant there!

Enjoyed Most: The place was noisy and you could hear above, next door and outside. I know this happens but it appeared there was no buffer in walls and wood walkway above was very loud when someone walked on it. We arrived Fri and left our room early Sat 8:30 for sightseeing and returned around 3pm to rest. Our room was still not made up and I went to housekeeping at 4 to ask what the problem was. They said they were behind and would send someone right away. We waited by the pool in 60 degree weather for another hour and finally went to the room and sat and waited. Our door keys did not work and we had them recarded 3 times. When we checked out they still did not work and was told was probably the baterry in the door after 2 days of dealing with this. They do not seem to have enough help on hand. Oh yes-the restaurant menu was very limited and not very appealing-will never return to this place or recommend it.
Other Comments: The hotel was not of the caliber I expected given it was advertised as a resort. It was not worth the money paid.

Enjoyed Most: Comfy bed
Other Comments: It's a cute property but not up to par with other kimtons. It's more of a motel 6 with a trendy bar.
