Agave Inn

Upper State Street, Santa Barbara

Just 10 minutes’ drive from Santa Barbara City College. Free WiFi is available.

Featuring modern Mexican-inspired décor, each bright room at Agave Inn includes a flat-screen TV with cable. Comfortably furnished, all en suite rooms include a fridge and microwave.

East Beach is 4 miles from this motel. Mission Santa Barbara is 12 minutes’ walk away. The check-in was easy and the staff were very friendly and informative about the surrounding area - given that it was dark when we arrived at night, that was very helpful for finding a restaurant (we booked online through about 1 hour before we checked in). Our room was immaculately clean; the bed was comfortable, the room was warm and the shower had fantastic water pressure. The soap, shampoo and conditioner were each in refillable bottles; not individual sachets which cuts down on waste, a thing that both my wife and I liked. The interior design of the room was pleasant, it seemed to me to be a mix of Japanese and Mexican (apologies if I have gotten this wrong); it was your average motel room but Agave Inn's finishing touches throughout and it's cleanliness made it stand out for me. I would definitely stay at the Agave Inn again and I have already recommended it to friends; and I would do so to anyone. There are Japanese, Korean, Indian and Thai restaurants near by and also a pizza place; there are also a couple of bars too. Across the street there is a garden nursery, a fabulous French patisserie and a sandwich shop; all within the Loreto Plaza shopping centre.
