We spent Christmas in Santa Barbara visiting family. The room we stayed in was well appointed, the bed extremely comfortable, pillows, linens and all. The wall of windows opened to a charming patio, fenced in for privacy. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to inquire as to our comfort. The breakfast, served daily, included fruits, pastries,...

We stayed here 5 nights in a spacious room overlooking the pool (unused in winter and so very quiet). The room was comfortable and well-appointed. There's a French press coffee maker (as well as coffee available at the morning breakfast buffet downstairs), although the coffee they supply smells like Folger's and wasn't up to their standard. Morning breakfast was OK...

Similar rooms to a Four Seasons but in a motel setting. Not a luxury resort but very clean and nice. Great free breakfast: continental items with fresh baked quiche. Would definitely stay again if...

My husband and I spent several days in Santa Barbara this month. The Spanish Garden Inn is a perfect location downtown within walking distance of the sites, restaurants, and shopping. It is located a couple of blocks off State Street and is very quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast included quiche, fruit, cereal, sweet rolls, bagels, eggs, and...
