Stayed at Montecito Inn and were luckily upgraded to the king suite. It was incredible. Montecito was an adorable city very close to downtown Santa Barbara. Stay here... and if you can, splurge on the King Suite. What an experience.

Great hotel. Great rooms. Jason and his staff are very accommodating. We have been coming to the Montecito Inn for a number of years. Always hate to leave. Cannot wait to return. You cannot find a better room than one of the luxury king suites.

We had a great stay! The hotel was comfortable and family friendly; we used the pool every day we were there and greatly appreciated that it was kept warm for cool, rainy days. Super staff, especially the valet service! We had lunch at the Honor Bar and loved the sandwiches. Walking friendly

Hotel was not as warm and friendly as what we had remembered from our visit two years ago. The hotel is tired and undergoing some reservations. We look forward to poking our heads in to see the improvements made before we commit to staying there again from Boston.

Wonderful old style hotel. Some items could be updated but overall a truly wonderful stay, will stay here again. Bathroom a little dated and small but that's the only item. Nearby restaurants are excellent

We stayed there and loved the bed and bedding but when taking a shower the water did not stay hot or cold. There are two things you need when purchasing a place to sleep and bath--good bed, bedding and hot water take the bath. It kept changing and had to make quick adjustments. Needs to get restaurant open also.

Easy stroll or bike ride to the beach. Lovely shops and cafes close by. The inn currently does not have a restaurant but there is coffee and tea 24 hours and in the morning very tasty bakery items as well as protein bars which came in very handy after a long walk on the beach.

Small rooms, TINY bathroom, but clean & very nice. Minibar in room is unnecessary. We'd have preferred a coffeemaker, but lobby coffee was delicious. We wish it was dog friendly. Great location & valrt parking,

Relax by the pool and Jacuzzi, or walk only 2.5 Blocks to the beach. Also enjoy the day in Montecito, one of America's most beautiful seaside communities, with boutique shopping.
