If you are considering a stay at the Santa Barbara Inn, please browse the hotel reviews below for a sense of the experience that awaits.

Fantastic Hotel

We enjoyed our stay so much. The hotel is beautiful and the staff amazing. The front desk staff was very helpful and valet guys so nice and polite. We loved the Convivo restaurant on site. So convenient and food was amazing.


Beautiful hotel and town

Beautiful, tastefully decorated hotel about a mile away from State street/ downtown Santa Barbara and right across the street from the beach.
Loved the large beautiful room and balcony. Would definitely come back if we ever visit this wonderful town again.


Great place to stay in Santa Barbara!

The only disappointment we had was having to leave after five great days. Our room was spacious and well appointed. It was certainly comparable to the rooms we've had at Terranea, another one of our favorite location.

Wonderful restaurants are everywhere in Santa Barbara. The Inn's restaurant met all our expectations, as did their friendly and efficient staff.

The hotel's location is ideal in that it is convenient to so many places we enjoyed visiting, be it the many attractions on State Street, numerous good restaurants, the Santa Barbara Zoo, inviting walking paths, and the beach (which is right across the street).

We look forward to returning soon!

Worry-free and pleasurable

We were gifted with a stay at the Santa Barbara Inn, and what a treat! Concierge contacted us and by text, sent us the hotel amenities and restaurant menu. They responded immediately to questions; and allowed us to store our electric bikes on our balcony!

Our king room with ocean view was roomy and comfy; 2 entrances onto the wide balcony was great. We left the doors open to catch the ocean breeze and listen to the surf at night. The beach is across the street and bicycle paths are numerous.

From the valet to housekeeping to restaurant staff, every person went above and beyond to provide us with a wonderful weekend.

The restaurant, Convivo, serves incredibly delicious food indoors and out. Try the Peach Pizza, Charcoal Avocado salad, Brussels, Ribs, and Panna Cotta dessert with berries. Frittata for breakfast with excellent coffee!
Well mannered dogs were welcome on the patio.

We are grateful for this wonderful, worry free few days at the Santa Barbara Inn.
