We felt very fortunate to have found the Santa Barbara Inn when researching places to stay in Santa Barbara. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and very easy to navigate. 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 recently stayed at the Santa Barbara Inn for 2 nights on a business trip. My king ocean room was lovely. It had a nice patio, ocean views, large bathroom and other well-appointed amenities.The bed was very comfortable and the rooms were quiet. I loved the hotel's charming mediterranean architecture and decor. The hotel is located directly across the street...

First time staying here, came to get away from the Oregon rain (to no avail, raining here too.) We booked a double queen on the second floor, right by the pool. Nice large room with beautiful crisp white linens on the beds. Super clean and well-kept, I especially liked the plantation shutters on the windows. And AGAIN, everything is very...

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...

The hotel is beautiful but a little bit of a walk from downtown. There is a free shuttle stop nearby. The only issue was the limited power plugs but that is such a minor issue. Restaurant was excellent.

When I booked this place, I tried to figure out what equipment was in the fitness center but couldn't find that information on-line. This fitness center has free weights up to 50 lbs, two adjustable benches, a cable machine, two treadmills and a recumbent bike. All the equipment was in good condition. Overall I really like the hotel. A few...

We used this venue to host a 100 person conference and reception on the outdoor terrace. All the staff, from the sales manager, catering manager to the servers and set up crew were extremely proactive, helpful and attentive to detail throughout the entire process. The hotel stood out in that all the staff were extremely invested in offering the best...

We just had the great fortune of staying at the Santa Barbara Inn! They have just finished a complete remodel and it is fantastic! There couldn't be a better location, right across from the beach. The rooms, amenities and service are outstanding. The decor is so beautiful, the beds so comfortable, the location so perfect I didn't want to leave!...

We stayed in an ocean view king room that was magnificent. Large rooms with spectacular view of the ocean. The hotel has been completely renovated and added a great restaurant with outdoor seating called Convivo. You are right across from the great East Beach. I couldn't recommend this hotel more.
