We had a good room, a restful sleep and a hearty breakfast so what more do you need. We would be happy to return. Location is ideal for a Santa Barbara overnight. Breakfast supplied was more than adequate with staff who were very efficient.

My husband and I stayed at the Castillo Inn for 2 nights of our honeymoon whilst in Santa Barbara. It was perfect. Great location, a short walk from State Street and next to the beach. The staff were helpful providing maps and local knowledge. Rooms were spotless. In the morning there are pastries muffins fruit coffee and tea. All you...

Thus is a quaint, small, motel close to the harbor. Recently remodeled, but retaining the Spanish flair. The filtered water tap is a nice addition as is the new insulation. My room was on the street. Never heard street noise. On their own the management issued credit to my account because the A/C didn't work. Continental breakfast was included and...

Stayed in room 15 and it was lovely - big king size comfy bed. Large room with a decent, quiet aircon unit. Fridge and a coffee maker in the room. Staff were lovely too. Easy to park very close to the room. Only a couple of minutes walk from the beach. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend to...

Drinking really good coffee and eating delicious pastries with fresh fruit while sitting on the patio watching great blue herons fly to and from their nest in a tree in the park across the street - nice morning waking up at the Castillo Inn at the Beach. Our room is clean with a nicely updated bathroom and everything you need...

Stayed here for one night on the drive down from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Close to beach and a short walk to State Street for bars, restaurants and shopping. Comfortable room with free wifi and free parking. Staff welcoming and helpful.

During our road trip in California, we stopped in Santa Barbra. The hotel was near by the beach. The room was good, clean and big enough for two persons. The parking area was located close to the rooms. We strongly recommend this hotel if you are going to stay in Santa Barba.

We stayed for two nights as part of our honeymoon. The accommodation was to a very high standard and was great value for money. We thought the breakfast offered was a nice touch. I would highly recommend the Castillo Inn and would stay again.

Perfect for a stop over during a road trip. We stayed for one night and had a really great nights sleep at Castillo Inn at the Beach. It's in a good location and we took a lovely walk along the beach in the evening until we found somewhere for dinner. We had 2 large double beds in our room so...

My husband & I stayed for one night here, and were pleased with our choice. The rate was reasonable and we felt lucky to get a reservation. It's only a block away from the beach, and a few blocks from restaurants. The room is lovely, with lots of nice touches such as beautiful tiles and lovely landscaping. The room was...
