For our two night stay in Santa Barbara we have been recommended to stay in the Castillo Inn by a local friend. It was the perfect fit for us: great location next to the beach and only a 10-15min stroll to downtown / state street, moderately priced for Santa Barbara, nicely furnished and decent sized room, very clean and friendly...

This was our first trip to Santa Barbara, and the Castillo Inn at the Beach was the best choice we could've made! We were a short walk to the Pacific Ocean and the area's best restaurants. Our room was clean, quiet, and updated with top-notch amenities. It's a small property (only about a dozen rooms and no pool), but it...

I cannot fault this place, from the moment we arrived we were treated to a warm welcome by the gentleman on reception and enjoyed every min of our stay. The location is a minutes walk from the beach and 15 min walk from the main shops and bars. The rooms are spacious, beds comfortable, fridge, hair dryer, etc. There was...

'Just around the corner from the beach and wharf area, which is great because you don't have to deal with the traffic (pedestrian and auto). Beautifully decorated rooms and bathrooms. No pool (but so close to the beach and playground/wading pool for kids). The internet was horribly slow, which was hard for us on our college visit tour with our...

They have a small breakfast bar in the morning. Which has muffins, fruits and orange juice. Overall we liked our stay. The only negatives The internet is patchy and the...

We stayed in this inn recently and were very impressed with the lovely accommodations! While from the outside this would appear to be a typical motel, the inside tells a very different story. Our room was beautifully decorated and the living area and bathroom were very well-appointed! The bed was very comfortable and our stay was delightful. And, we were...

I really appreciate Castillo Inn, simple, clean, near the beach, Mesa, state street and of course Dan is friendly and welcomes me back each visit as if I just left. Trip number 5 to visit my boys who moved to SB. Will return:-)

My husband and I Loved the Castillo Inn! The decor brought us back to Romantic Italy and the bed was so comfortable we slept like babies. The Innkeeper was terrific, gave suggestions on things to do, places to eat and generally eager to ensure our stay was a pleasant one. We just got back from a 10 day drive up...

Unbeatable in price, location, service and cleanliness combined. Short walk to shops, some of the best restaurants in town, and the beach! Reasonably priced for the service that they offer. You even have a fair selection of cold breakfast included in the price. One of the best hotels I've stayed in California in this price range.

Easy to walk to beach and town from here. The pier (the wharf) is about a 15 min walk. Room was very large, no 12, bed extremely comfortable and tv was huge. Breakfast was in the lobby and you could take it back to your room. Receptionist was helpful and gave dinner recommendation and tips on things to do. Try...
