Very clean, comfortable, and staff nice. Would like to have an elevator, but our suitcase was carried up for us. Room right on street, but was mostly quiet at night. Did not use AC. Would like shower gel, but other amenities nice. Very close to beach. We were out very late and not room in lot, but ...
I enjoyed my recent stay at the Montecito Inn. The staff was extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean, comfortable and very quiet. The hotel is located within an easy walk to a nice beach and also located very close to many restaurants. I would definitely stay there again.
Wonderful, relaxing experience. Feeling of luxury and tranquility at virtually all times at all locations on the property. Definite thumbs up; looking forward to our next stay at San Ysidro Ranch!
The hotel was nice, but unfortunately they were remodeling during our visit and the construction noise was bad. We were disappointed that the hotel did not let us know in advance that they were renovating during the time of our stay.
Santa Barbara has been a honeypot for the rich and famous for decades. Drawn by the warm, Mediterranean climate, 300 days of sunshine each year, and beautiful, palm-lined beaches, it's one of the most stylish cities on the California coast.
Santa Barbara offers a number of chic boutique hotels downtown, near the beaches and in the outlying suburbs and towns, including Goleta, Carpinteria and the Santa Ynez Valley.
Santa Barbara has plenty of attractions, from old Spanish missions, historic museums and modern art galleries to designer shopping malls and a modern dining scene. Most boutique accommodation in Santa Barbara offers WiFi, minibars and room service as standard, while many also feature infinity pools, luxury spas and ocean-facing terraces.
First stop is a visit to the legendary Mission Santa Barbara. A mile north of downtown, this landmark pink-and-cream church dates back to the 18th century and houses a fascinating mission museum, a sacred garden and Chumash art gallery.
From here, it's a ten-minute stroll to the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, while the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, off State Street downtown, is well worth an hour or two of your time.
Ranked as one of the wealthiest communities in America, and home to many celebrity faces, the Santa Barbara suburb of Montecito has a chic, small-town vibe. Head to the main street for designer boutiques, stylish coffee shops and upscale SoCal restaurants. But also take time to visit the weird and wonderful Lotusland, a 37-acre botanical garden once belonging to eccentric Polish opera singer, Madame Ganna Walska.
Book a boutique hotel in the Santa Ynez Valley, some 30 miles northwest of Santa Barbara, and you'll be within easy reach of some of Southern California's best wineries. The area is made up of five small towns – Solvang, Buellton and Los Olivos – and there are over 100 wineries and vineyards in the lush hills, most of which offer guided tours and tastings.
