The room was very nice, and very clean. We got a double queen bed room. The beds were extremely comfortable. The pool was average, jacuzzi only allowed for up to 5 at one time. The only downside was there was no coffee in the room. But if you don't drink coffee, then it was perfect

We checked in here late in the afternoon on a recommendation from Tom at the visitor information centre. The hotel has recently been thoroughly renovated, however remains reasonably priced (around $250 before AAA discounts and the $19 valet parking with in/out privileges) compared to other comparable hotels in the area. It has a nice pool area and hot tub looking...

I travel quite a bit for business and pleasure, and I can honestly say the Santa Barbara Inn is one of my favorite hotels...anywhere. Immaculately appointed (brand new, open just 6 months), clean, quiet and perfectly located right across the street from the beach. Staff is friendly and accommodating, at the ready to respond to your every need. Customer service...

We were only in Santa Barbara for 24 hours, but it felt longer with a night at The Santa Barbara Inn! This Spanish style hotel is clean,modern and classy. The room was very spacious with an amazing veranda. Not only could you sit outside and enjoy the view, you had the ocean breeze fill your room. We enjoyed the pool/hot...

The renovated Santa Barbara Inn is very well done. We upgraded to a suite on the third floor that gave us plenty of room. The view was outstanding of the ocean with a circular patio. The room was very clean, the bed was great, the heated floors in the bathroom was a nice touch, as was the refrigerator instead of...

We planned our long weekend in Santa Barbara during the President's Day weekend last week, never thinking that we'd encounter the epic rainstorms! The place we originally planned on staying was impacted by the storm and at the last moment we needed to find alternative lodging. Lucky for us that we found the Santa Barbara Inn. It is a lovely,...

Most importantly, the entire staff was very friendly and very accommodating! We enjoyed just being able to walk across the street to the beach each day. The staff was wonderful, the...

I loved the hotel's charming mediterranean architecture and decor. The hotel is located directly across the street...

What a lovely hotel right across the street from the beach. Delightful stay, from first welcome to the end. Enjoyed happy hour in the bar/restaurant. Our server, Juan, was great. The room was attractive, spacious, and comfortable. Our ground-level patio had a great view of the ocean and beach across the street. The area was convenient -- great beach walk,...

Everything inside the hotel looks beautiful, from the lobby, to the ocean view of the hotel, and the tasty food offered by the restaurant. They also agreed to take room service order right when its about closing time, when we called in for request. The night we were there, some domestic agreement in the guest room prompted the arrival of...
