"Christmas refuge"
What a lovely place. We were greeted as we pulled in to our parking spot. Found our room (the garden) to be well-located across from the dining area. Very nice large gardens with small bubbling fountains. Each room was quite private and apart from others. Ours was well appointed, with a vaulted ceiling and vintage wood floors. Pleasant pale-yellow with white trim. Super-fluffy pillows. Our only very-slight concern was that it was a bit tight, the bath being very small. An ideal spot to walk over to State Street where restaurants and shops abound. We enjoyed the daily paper and read it over coffee before breakfast began at 8:30. A nice menu which has a daily special dish. Can't overstate how well we were treated by the servers and everyone else. Superb! Worth every dollar. You'd better get there. Rob V. Conifer Co.

"Nice hotel."
Staff was great. Room was comfortable. The only odd thing was the sliding glass bathroom door that was frosted, but provided a backlit show for people in the room.

"Very enjoyable!"
All the staff members couldn't have been more helpful. The service in the restaurant was excellent but the quality of the lunch and dinner menu was only fair. We have enjoyed Sunday brunch previously and it was very good.

"Older hotel doubles as youth hostel."
Youth oriented older hotel close to the Funk Zone, which is where lots of wineries are for tasting. Nice, helpful staff. Convenient to the beach as well (4 blocks). Generally ugly decor in room has not been updated in seemingly decades. No frig, coffee maker, or glasses in the room. Room was quiet though just off the 101 freeway. Seems expensive for the amenities (SB seems pricey overall).

"Close to the bay. Easy access from Hwy 101.."
Arrived late and got an "ocean view" room which meant right above the Main Street. It was noisy but the view was great. The room was nice; the bed was really comfortable. The buildings and grounds were well maintained and very attractive. Seems like a great location; we were only there overnight.

"Name is misleading"
The inn is not by the harbor, but a 15 minute walk. There's no view, but the courtyard landscaping was lovely and well-maintained. The pool and hot tub area were nice. The rooms had a bit of a worn look, and only the bathroom was updated. The service and staff made up for any shortcomings in the property.

    Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels in Santa Barbara

    Santa Barbara has a long and fascinating European history which dates back to the 1600s when the first Spanish missionaries arrived in California. Thanks to this Mediterranean influence, Santa Barbara has many iconic terracotta-red tiled and whitewashed buildings, a warm, year-round climate and a Spanish colonial appeal.

    Historic Hotels in Santa Barbara

    A hundred miles up the coast from LA and sandwiched between the Santa Ynez mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara is a popular weekend destination for the LA crowd who come to stay in its chic historic hotels.

    Head to the stylish suburb of Montecito or for trendy Spanish-style inns, or to downtown Santa Barbara for sprawling 19th-century villas and upmarket B&Bs in Spanish Colonial Revival-style homes.

    Stay near Santa Barbara's Historic Attractions

    First stop on your history visit to Santa Barbara has to be the Mission Santa Barbara, just north of downtown. Known as the Queen of the Missions, this beautiful pink-and-white church has a fascinating museum depicting missionary life in the 18th century, and stacks of Chumash artwork from the earlier settlers.

    From the Mission, it's a short hop to El Presidio de Santa Barbara State Historic Park. Built by the Spanish in 1782, the four presidios played a vital role in Spain's occupation of Alta California. Learn more about Santa Barbara's early years in the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, which is tucked away in a stunning cloistered courtyard downtown.

    Shopping and Dining in Santa Barbara

    Renowned for its wealth of rich and famous residents, Santa Barbara has a fantastic shopping scene. Head to the Historic State Street Plaza, a pedestrianised open-air mall where designer stores line up next to hip surf labels and high-street shops.

    After a day of sightseeing or shopping, retire to your Santa Barbara historic hotel for a drink in the bar, before heading out to explore downtown's many SoCal or Mexicana restaurants, chic cocktail lounges and wine bars around Lower State Street.

    From 19th-century hacienda-style guesthouses to plush hotels built in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, use Expedia to find the best deals on historic hotels for your next stay in Santa Barbara.
