We went here with friends who are regulars including someone who uses it on business. We booked well ahead (3 months) and choose King rooms, front facing. The rooms are simple and the beds are heavenly. However, on our first night all hell broke loose when a wedding party returned and continued to party on the stairs, on the landings,...

I was interested in booking this Motel / Hotel for a week or two in the near future so went personally to the "Office" - and requested to take a look at a room if possible as it could be more than a couple of weeks. Possible - at 3pm - ? No, apparently all 27 rooms were occupied at...

My husband and I felt we needed to get some cool ocean breeze after a very hot week where we lived. Santa Barbara sounded great but we had a hard time finding a hotel that was not way overpriced or booked. We finaly found Coast Village Inn, not exactly in Santa Barbara but in the beautiful village of Monticito just...

This place is charming and great value. Some of the earlier historic reviews may or may not be justified . There are some people who will never be satisfied and they always write a review to tell others . Thankfully they will not be at the Coast Village Inn and better for it. The price is always right . It...

When I go to Santa Barbara solo I book the CVI, and have done this a half dozen times. The downside is that the rooms are small, the outside noises seem to be amplified at times, the parking is little funky. The upside is that the property is generally quiet, the housekeeping is excellent, the linens and toiletries are of...

This is a typical motel that has been upgraded. Everything in the room is first class. There is no AC. With the window open, it was comfortable in July, but you do hear some noise, not bad, though. We heard a train, but not during the night...we were there on the weekend. There was a two night minimum as it...

Our stay in this hotel was absolute comfortable, the rooms are clean and the service is friendly. The location is near to the street where you can find excellent breakfast opportunities. The rooms are small but with nice style. If you book with kitchen, the kitchen is simple and comfort only moderate. But I can recommend the rooms without kitchen.

I have only great things to say about this hotel. It is amazing value for big rooms with very comfortable beds, a nice swimming pool and extremely helpful staff who will go out of their way to always help you. They go above and beyond service that I received at other, more expensive, hotels. Lastly, the $5 breakfast ticket they...

I have been staying here for years, its a Motel not a Hotel and its the best in Montecito. It puts you in the center of the Lower Village, close to restaurants and not too far from the Upper Village. Santa Barbara is only 5 minutes down the road, and there is a swimming pool around which one can relax....

This was a wonderful surprise, considering there are only 3 hotels in Montecito and they are all quite expensive. Coast Village Resort gives you Location, Location, Location with a fraction of the price. You are in the heart of town, steps away from fabulous eateries like Cava and Jeanine's. There is a classic car show outside your window every Sunday...
