This is a truly excellent hotel. Excellent mostly due to the amazing and personal service we received from ALL of the staff, particularly the two men who checked us in on the first day. There is nice, pleasant small talk with the hotel staff and then there is the Spanish Garden Inn, they were genuinely thoughtful, interested and made us...

What a great find. We absolutely loved everything about the Spanish Garden Inn. Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Room was unique -- definitely not cookie cutter. Felt like we were staying in a personally owned Spanish style home. Our room as very quiet, in walking distance to all the hub bubble downtown, and very cozy. Highly...

We stayed 4 nights at the Spanish Garden Inn. We meet another couple there and had a great time. Our friends were upgraded to the Majestic Suite, so that was a bonus for us all. Our room was a standard one with a lovely balcony over the courtyard...a great place to hang out. Our first night there was a wine...

The Spanish Garden Inn is the perfect place to stay. It is probably the most expensive room I have ever booked but it was absolutely worth it. Everything about it was perfect. They advertise a "Continental breakfast" but was more like a gourmet brunch....so many healthy choices to choose from. I was totally impressed by the customer service. Everyone I...

What a picture perfect hotel! This property truly matches the quintessential American Riviera reputation that Santa Barbara owns. The care that has gone into the property is only the kind of care that comes from very active owners. I did not personally meet the owners, but being a business owner myself, I know what love in a business looks like....
