The Kimpton Goodland is a boutique hotel located in Goleta, CA. After we checked in, we navigated through the chic interiors, outdoor fire pits, poolside gatherings, and colorful walls to find our room.  The Goodland can best be described as boho surf chic, a coastal-inspired decor-lover’s dream, and everywhere you looked, you couldn’t help (in this day and age) to think, “wow, that would make a good Instagram post.
