We stayed at the Cabrillo Inn May 15-17. We had room #24 in the back on the ground floor with a patio. It was a updated room and very clean with a mini frig and microwave. The patio had a table and 4 chairs with a privacy fence, no view. It was totally quiet. They have nice muffins, fruit and...

We stayed at the Castillo Inn in February and it was a nice place for the price. It's a small hotel with a handful of units but it has the feel of a larger resort. The rooms are large and clean and ours had a little private patio out back. It wasn't much to look at but it was a...

The Castillo Inn is very well located, but that is only one if it's charms. It has spacious rooms that are generous and nicely appointed. The property and rooms were immaculately maintained. Mattresses were firm and very comfortable (hotel mattresses usually wreak havoc on my back). We were very satisfied!

I would have given this place 3.5 out of 5, but TripAdvisor makes me choose between 3 and 4, and the place was not my idea of a 4 star room, based upon the amenities. I suppose that this is a function of Santa Barbara being a very expensive hotel destination, but paying nearly $200 a night for a basic...

The Castillo was just as expected. Older place but updated well. Windows you can open, bed and linens nice. Clean and well maintained. HVAC was very nice, very quiet, not those in the wall kind. Location is close to the beach and walkable to State Street for restaurants and shopping. The mission, courthouse, Casa del Herrero 5-10 drive. My only...

Good value, clean, spacious accommodation within 2 minutes walk of the beach and under 10 minutes from the high street and pier. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The self service breakfast had a good range of beverages and pastries.

A vehicle accident brought us to stay at the Castillo inn at the beach, while our son is going to be fine. The staff were incredible along with the room. It was a overwhelming visit.

Husband and I recently stayed here for a night. The room was spacious and clean. We were walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and shops. The harbor and the pier were only a 5-10 minute walk. The people working the front desk were friendly and helpful. We are already planning another stay here this summer.

I would highly recommend Castillo Inn for anyone looking for a very nice place near the water and downtown without the high price tag. My husband and I were so pleasantly surprised when we entered the room and our stay did not disappoint. While it is not On the beach, it is a couple blocks away.
