I have been here many times before and have always been happy for choosing this place. Each stay was wonderful and super comfortable. I have a lot of health issues pertaining to allergies, thus cleanliness and the comfort of beds and beddings are imperative for me. Agave Inn is always the best in providing these for me.

This is one of the best deals you can get in Santa Barbara for a clean, tidy, colorful place. It's not fancy, but attention was paid to making it feel happy. The owner and staff care about the property, and even though it's an older building, it's been recently decorated in a simple and modern way that makes it inviting...

I had just been released from SB hospital after a month of treatments for leukemia and has a very compromised immune system so I needed a very clean hotel. This cute little hotel has just been completely remodeled inside/out. Our room was as clean as my hosptital room, I kid you not, everything sparkled. We were only going to stay...

The staff was friendly and polite. The room was very clean which was super important to me. It was exactly what I needed and was looking for for my trip. A good value and I would certainly consider staying again. My only complaint was that my room had an odd and not so pleasant odor.

We were passing through Santa Barbara and were on a long trip so looking for a budget option. This place was perfect, clean, good shower, lovely staff, simple but good complimentary breakfast and we could park right outside our door. Nice quiet area and not far to downtown. Would definitely recommend.

My partner and I booked this place last minute on the day of arrival. We were very delayed and ended up arriving early hours of the morning. Wendy and Suzan had very kindly left our key out for us with instructions of what to do on arrival. The motel is very well located with an easy drive to main attractions....

Stayed overnight with my partner on Sunday 23rd October. This is a great affordable base in Santa Barbara, an easy drive into the centre. Rooms spotlessly clean and with character - simple snacks for breakfast but everything fresh and tasty - best of all was the friendly, attentive service at reception. Would definitely stay again.

I normally wouldn't stay in a motel but SB was busy this weekend so most hotels were booked or ridiculously expensive. I decided to try Agave Inn due to its reviews and I wasn't disappointed. The owner was welcoming, accommodating and very helpful. The location was very convenient for what I wanted to do that weekend. Plenty of good restaurants...

Cleverly decorated. Great customer service. Expensive for a motel--but woman on the phone was really flexible about switching my stay dates I chose online. 4 stars for customer service. Took off one star because of high price.
