Hotels Guests Love in Santa Barbara

  • We stayed here for 3 nights. we stayed in a corner room (204) which was spacious, immaculate, quiet and very comfortable. The bathroom, including spa bath, was huge and very well equipped. We enjoyed the generous welcome pack and each morning, we were able to prepare a good breakfast in the kitchen area before setting out to explore Santa Barbara. The walking distance from the wharf, beach and State Street is just right. We could not fault this lovely inn, the best place/room we stayed in on our 12 day Californian road trip.

  • We loved how it's 2 blocks from the beach. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. Free Parking, bikes, DVD library when you come back at night, coffee/snacks at the front desk, and snacks. It's a great value for Santa Barbara hotel close to the beach and State Street. Others will cost you double.for the same luxuries.

    Jonathan, Young couple from the United States
  • The central location of The Hotel Santa Barbara is excellent. Their own parking is a plus where parking is normally limited. The morning complimentary breakfast is well above the usual, with a variety of fruits, little waffles, bagels, etc. I was surprised as to how quite it was in the evenings since it is located right on the active State Street. Very clean & comfortable, I would definitely recommend this to my family & friends.

    Randy, Mature couple from the United States
  • This hotel has real character and charm. The staff are excellent, helpfull and perfectly groomed. The location is right on the beach in the beautiful town of Santa Barbara, it's a perfect setting. We stayed here at the start of our tour around the west coast and liked it so much we returned at the end of our tour for the last couple of days. Recommended.

    Cliff, Mature couple from the United Kingdom
  • I loved the staff and how accommodating they were. It was out first trip to Santa Barbara and we had a wonderful experience. It was my birthday and the staff upgraded me to a beautiful room with a patio and delivered a bottle of wine with a birthday card! It doesn't get any better than that... The hotel was so clean... They had bikes for us to take for free and the hotel was in walking distance of state street. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend

    Erika, Mature couple from the United States
  • The location was superb with easy access to the harbor, State Street and great restaurants. The hotel setting and layout was beautiful. Very picturesque and inviting. We were warmly greeted by staff; in fact every staff interaction was friendly and professional. The basket full of goodies (even fresh banana bread) is a nice touch. I would stay here again, as well as recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Santa Barbara.
