Picked this off trip advisor. Even better than expected. Focused on two inner courtyards the Inn is a peaceful oasis with charming rooms, quiet sitting areas, nice plantings. We had room 13, which was spacious, had a private patio. Feels like its been here forever. Very nice breakfast buffet. Parking underneath. Nice people. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Spanish Garden Inn was super comfortable and filled with amenities (French press coffee maker in room, upscale toiletries, wine at check-in, quiet ceiling fan in room, all day coffee/tea/soft beverage service in lobby, etc.) and easy walking distance to restaurants and attractions. Staff was helpful and courteous. Great way to experience a few days in Santa Barbara.

My wife and I took the train up from San Diego and walked from the station to the Spanish Garden Inn. We realized within minutes of entering that we had chosen the right spot.

Our daughter got sick and had to stay in bed one day. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had movies and popcorn and anything else we needed. They certainly made an unfortunate bedridden day much more enjoyable and comfortable.

I stayed here last week and it is a great hotel. The staff was gracious and helpful, the room large, airy and clean with a fantastic bathroom, and the wifi free (as it should be). The location is excellent, a short walk to the main drag without being directly in it, so it was nice and quiet. An excellent place,...

The Spanish Garden Inn is a lovely spot in Santa Barbara. The hotel is conveniently located, with secure parking. We parked the car and walked everywhere--there's a trolley that runs along State Street, so you can walk to the beach and catch a ride back up the hill.
