Welcome to
Santa Barbara Inn

Discover Our Mediterranean Inspired Boutique Hotel

Gaze out to the Pacific from an ocean view guest room or take a relaxing stroll along the beaches at our doorstep.  Our dedicated staff at the Santa Barbara Inn looks forward to welcoming you.​ 

Framed by deep, red terra cotta roofs, luminous white stucco, gracefully arched windows and a duo of handcrafted tile domes, the Santa Barbara Inn perfectly embodies the spirit and architecture of its Santa Barbara. Our newly re-imagined Spanish Mediterranean boutique merges classic elegance and coastal luxury with 70 beautifully appointed rooms and suites and dramatic ocean views.

"This hotel is spectacular. The location is unbeatable and the cleanliness of the rooms was spot on. The staff were very friendly and eager to ensure our time there was comfortable and enjoyable. We can't wait to return and I highly recommend this gorgeous hotel right on the beach in Santa Barbara."

Sink into a lounge chair by the heated outdoor pool and disappear into a good book. Adorned with flickering gas lanterns and a fire pit, our oceanfront terrace is an enchanting spot for savoring cocktails, Italian fare and the Pacific Coast sunset.  

​​Additional amenities include a modern fitness center and a comfortable event venue accommodating up to 80 guests. 

The Inn’s central location puts visitors just moments from downtown Santa Barbara and abundant recreation in the Santa Ynez Mountains. Brilliant white sand beaches, wine tours, fashionable boutiques and world-class dining — beginning with our very own Convivo Restaurant — are all within immediate reach. This is the Santa Barbara Inn, exactly the California you’ve come to discover.
