A Piece of Santa Barbara History
One of the most unique features of our Santa Barbara hotel is our shared residence with the historic Sexton House. When the Sexton family grew, so did their need for space. In 1880, Joseph and Lucy commissioned Peter Barber, Santa Barbara's premier architect, to design the striking Italianate house, which now serves as the centerpiece of Pacifica Suites. The home became a Goleta showplace with specimen plantings, a rose hedge that stretched a half-mile, flower fields, and youthful activity, which can still be explored today.
