Proposed Goleta Hotel To Be Vetted By Planning Commission


A Goleta Planning Commission decision on the Marriott Residence Inn proposed for Hollister Avenue at Robin Hill Road — across from the airport — was delayed 10/28 to 11/25 because of an error in the meeting’s noticing. The hotel, pitched in 2008, would have 118 rooms. Supporters contend an extended-stay hotel is needed for business travelers, who could bring millions of dollars in revenue over the next decade. Opponents worry about possible harm to the site’s Chumash history, decreased mountain views, and increased traffic, especially given the spate of other scheduled projects.
