We stayed here three nights while our daughter was looking at colleges in the area. We were able to walk to area restaurants and Starbucks is not far away. The Valet workers were awesome, they went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. The tub/shower was a bit unusual and would be hard for some people.

Needed an overnite stay in the Santa Barbara area and since it was spring break, decided to avoid the beach areas in favor of Montecito. Chose the Montecito Inn as we had stayed there some time ago and wanted to revisit.
The price point was very fair for such a convenient location and service oriented spot. The room, though small, was perfect, cozy and well appointed from the very comfortable bed, soft luxurious bathrobes and lovely bath and body products. We heard some noise from adjacent rooms plumbing, but no freeway or traffic noise.(room 207)
Service was terrific, from valet parking to check in process, and especially nice since I left my cellphone which they sent promptly.( I received it within 24 hours of arriving back home.) Thank you!
The complimentary breakfast was fine, not nearly as nice as everything else, but we were only looking for coffee and a Danish prior to leaving.
We were not at all disappointed and would recommend this lovely little inn and plan to return. I wish we would have looked at suites.

Room Tip: I would ask about room size and storage if I was traveling w/kids or staying for more than a few days.

Got a good deal on a Couple's Getaway Package here and scheduled a two night stay. We got to the Inn early and were able to check in without delay. The staff is magnificent and so very friendly. They provided helpful information on local things to do, good restaurants in the area and driving directions. The room was a little small but laid out so well that it was not bothersome. We had a great view of the mountains out both sides of our corner room. We had a little noise from the street but there was not much traffic so it didn't cause any trouble sleeping. The only thing that kept me awake some was the weight of the beautiful comforter which was so heavy that It was very warm and I woke up sweating. The next night I switched it for the thinner blanket in the closet.

We came to the Montecito Inn because it was on our way north to Seattle and mainly because they had a Tesla charging station in the valet. It was free for hotel guests. The hotel is nice and vintage. We only stayed one night, but the staff was very pleasant and helpful. There was a nice cafe on the property that served a continental breakfast in the morning. There was also a small bar connected to the hotel as well.

They had an old style gated elevator for accessing the upper levels. The room was decorated with modern decor, though you could tell the construction seems vintage. From the doors to the walls. The only issue we had was the rooms were relatively small, and the bathrooms were tight as well. Other than that we enjoyed our stay and would stay their again if we visit Santa Barbara.

The Montecito Inn is truly a quaint and wonderful place to stay. It has the feel of a bed a breakfast for a full service hotel with a pool, fitness room, and restaurant. Just a few steps outside the hotel are small shops, art galleries, and other great restaurants to try out. Santa Barbara was also surprisingly just a few minutes drive. I was curious to find out that Charlie Chaplin used to own this hotel. They offer vintage Charlie Chaplin DVDs for the DVD players in the room. The rooms were comfortable, but keep in mind the bathroom is small. However, the hotel is clean, has a lot of charm, and is at a great location. We had a great romantic stay.
