Wife and I came up for a 3 day vacation and had a great time. The text concierge was super convenient and the entire staff was great. Room was very comfy with a great view of the ocean. We will definitely be back! The restaurant was also delicious.

Beautiful & comfortable in every way. Very helpful & cordial staff. Wonderful to be near the beach. What a perfect vacation for our extended family!



Great hotel across from the ocean where you can walk or bike along miles of the coast. Hotel lobby is pretty and cosy. Our room was huge and great for us. We were on the first floor and had a patio that we sat out on to watch the sunset. Clean and comfortable. Bathroom was large with a tub and separate shower. Great amenities. Would come back!

Santa Barbara Inn was a great location. Literally across the street from the beach & ocean. Prob a 15 min walking distance to the wharf and lower State Street (downtown). Most restaurants are located down the street. But they have a delicious restaurant, Convivo on the property...if you want to swim in the ocean, it’s steps away. The value was great for the location.

Had a great stay at the SB Inn. From valet parking to check in and check out everything went smoothly.
Got an ocean view room , lovely room it was very clean and comfortable. Definitely worth a stay for a special occasion. Expensive room but comparable to the area.  Shout out to the valet guys for fast and friendly service.  We ate dinner at the Convivo restaurant and it was ok.
