Castillo Inn at the Beach
Ranked #9 of 52 Hotels in Santa Barbara
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Thus is a quaint, small, motel close to the harbor. Recently remodeled, but retaining the Spanish flair. The filtered water tap is a nice addition as is the new insulation. My room was on the street. Never heard street noise. On their own the management issued credit to my account because the A/C didn't work. Continental breakfast was included and was fresh pastries, fruit, juices, coffee, etc. will stay again next time in Santa Barbara. Wish it had a pool and spa on site.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled with family

Stayed in room 15 and it was lovely - big king size comfy bed. Large room with a decent, quiet aircon unit. Fridge and a coffee maker in the room. Staff were lovely too. Easy to park very close to the room. Only a couple of minutes walk from the beach.

Would definitely stay there again and would recommend to anyone!

Drinking really good coffee and eating delicious pastries with fresh fruit while sitting on the patio watching great blue herons fly to and from their nest in a tree in the park across the street - nice morning waking up at the Castillo Inn at the Beach. Our room is clean with a nicely updated bathroom and everything you need -- even a faucet for filtered drinking water. Next on the agenda: walk two blocks to the harbor to rent kayaks, then walk uphill from hotel to tour SBCC. Even though our room faces Castillo, there's not much traffic noise with the windows shut. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for one night on the drive down from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Close to beach and a short walk to State Street for bars, restaurants and shopping. Comfortable room with free wifi and free parking. Staff welcoming and helpful.

During our road trip in California, we stopped in Santa Barbra. The hotel was near by the beach. The room was good, clean and big enough for two persons. The parking area was located close to the rooms. We strongly recommend this hotel if you are going to stay in Santa Barba.

We stayed for two nights as part of our honeymoon. The accommodation was to a very high standard and was great value for money. We thought the breakfast offered was a nice touch. I would highly recommend the Castillo Inn and would stay again.

Perfect for a stop over during a road trip. We stayed for one night and had a really great nights sleep at Castillo Inn at the Beach. It's in a good location and we took a lovely walk along the beach in the evening until we found somewhere for dinner.

We had 2 large double beds in our room so had a bed each which was a nice surprise! The bathroom was lovely and very quiet at night.

Had a problem with our room key and the guy at reception seemed a little grumpy when we requested help, but all was resolved quickly.
