The beautiful grounds
Poor WIFI connection.
Quaint and charming in a fabulous location. Restaurants and shopping all within walking distance.
Perhaps a little renovation in the baths and closet would be good.
The setting is beautiful, lovely house
the atmosphere was like you were back in time
Location, atmosphere, cleanliness, comfortable bed and room
The hotels ambiance, very inviting and homey also very quite and peaceful. Loved the grounds, especially the little garden area with the fountain. Perfect place for honeymooners!!!
The garden. The location near the market. Great garden room.
The atmosphere at Upham House is friendly and cozy. We enjoyed sipping wine near the fireplace, or having breakfast in the lovely garden.
My third or fourth time in the hotel and they gave us the worst room above the housekeeping department.
Eventhough they offered free snacks in the afternoon/evening they were by healthy enough for my daughter and I to eat. Lovely gesture though!
i don't like elevators and this place was just perfect in every way. Spacious and very comfortable room, beautiful setting, excellent location and a friendly staff. Will definitely go back :)
the extra Santa Barbara taxes (not your fault)
Loved the quaintness, location, friendly staff, and personal touches- milk and cookies at the end of the day! Nice little breakfast, and sitting room with fireplace is very cozy and homey....
Far from the beach
The room/amenities we had reserved was not available due to a break down. When we arrived, we had already been upgraded to a suite along with profound apologies. I truly appreciate when an organization strives to fix a problem, before I even realize there is one. Well done.
Great room, the grounds were well manicured and very peaceful, close to State street, friendly staff
Can't think of a single negative.
We liked everything about this hotel. The lobby had a fireplace with comfortable seating to enjoy a glass of wine. The staff was genuinely very friendly. The hotel has a lot of charm and was very relaxing. In addition, it has a great location and it has historical value, because it's the oldest hotel in SoCal.
Significant hallway noise in main house. Overpriced for single room in main house. Breakfast is fair. Says free wifi but it never connected in my room. In sunroom downstairs by front desk very poor intermittent service. If you want wifi at all this is not the place.
Location. It is quaint and charming.
The ONLY thing i didn't like was that the restaurant didn't deliver food to the room. i'm sure this is due to the restaurant being owned by someone other than the hotel....other than that small thing, it was great.
i loved the comfortable feeling of the hotel. It felt like home and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. i also loved the historical quality of the building, the old woodworking, the creaky windows when you opened them....i loved it and will recommend it to anyone who travels to Santa Barbara.
The ambiance of this place is very special. With the restaurant on the veranda, the gazebo in the middle of a beautiful rose garden, and the quaint cottages, this place is hard to beat. And it is close to all the downtown shops and sights.
Unfortunately, the weather was unseasonably hot (93 degrees) and the air did not work in one of the rooms with small children, although service was prompt. Evening cookies of Oreros was a bit of a disappointment...
