I'm so happy we chose this hotel. It is not only beautiful but is in a convenient location for a visit to Santa Barbara. Quiet area but still close enough to walk to restaurants & shopping. This hotel is charming, very comfortable, romantic & immaculate- with the added bonus of an exceptional staff. Another plus: Free underground parking.

The Spanish Garden Inn is a gem of a find hidden away in Santa Barbara, within easy walking distance of all the main attractions. The staff here are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

If you are planning a romantic getaway this boutique hotel is a must! We have stayed here a handful of times and it never disappoints. It's a bit hidden amongst a residential area but it's only three blocks away from State street (about a 10 minute walk at a very leisurely pace). They have free underground parking, which is super...

My boyfriend and I loved our romantic suite - it was gorgeous! Rachel at the front desk called us as promised, and let us know we could check in 2 hours early - she is awesome. My boyfriend requested chocolate covered strawberries and flowers in our room so it made the most beautifully romantic first impression! The bedroom was wonderful,...

I hadn't been in a couple of years but my 3rd visit was as amazing as the last two. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the guest rooms are all very...

From the moment we stepped onto the property we were so well treated. There was always someone at the front desk to greet us upon our return. Kayla was a breath of fresh air. Rachel was able to book us a couples massage that has to be one of the best I have ever received. Hubby agrees. Ask for Peter...

Charming hotel.... The spirit of Santa Barbara. Great service and lovely continental breakfast.... Comfy beds and large rooms. Ask about the art... It's my understanding that the owner is the artist! Excellent choice for a non-view hotel.
