The Santa Barbara Inn was great in every way. The room was spacious very clean and of a 5 star standard. All the start were very friendly and the location was just perfect! Wish we would have stayed longer.

We spent 3 nights with friends in Santa Barbra and stayed at the Inn in Ocean view rooms with small balcony. Rooms are large with nice size bathrooms with both tub and shower. Beds very comfortable . Nice beach walk across the street (ocean side) with about a mile walk to the Santa Barbra Pier and State Street, which is the main street of Santa Barbra.

Room Tip: Ask for 4th Floor Ocean View rooms

We stayed for 3 nights at the Santa Barbara Inn, as part of a fly drive holiday. This is a really lovely hotel, amazing view from our large balcony. The hotel is spotless, breakfast was great and we would definitely recommend it. Be aware that it is a 30 minute walk to State St and the shuttle bus only runs until 6pm. Would definitely come back.

This hotel is opposite a white sandy beach, palm trees swaying.
We feel very lucky to have found this hotel, all the staff were polite, extremely helpful and welcoming, we have to mention one of the waiters here ‘Bogdan’ he served us twice and he represents what is great about this hotel, an outstanding lovely man who is a real credit to this establishment.
Food was delishly simple using locally grown produce, impeccably presented.
Bedroom immaculate, comfy beds with beautiful linens
What’s not to like? - Nothing

We stayed for one night in an Ocean View room. Although the inn was lovely, the rooms were beautifully decorated and the balcony was delightful, our view was really an obstructed ocean view. It was angled somewhat away from the ocean, and the 2 huge palm trees in front of the patio created obstacles that had to be looked around to see the ocean at all. The road between the hotel and the ocean was a bit of an issue as well. The road noise was sufficient to send me back inside after only 15 minutes.

The complimentary continental breakfast was OK, with oatmeal, yogurt, granola, fruit, pastries, coffee and juice served in the hotel's restaurant. There is no complimentary lobby coffee, nor any afternoon wine tasting or cookies to be had here. Not quite what I was expecting for $500/night.

That being said, this is a beautiful hotel. It was sparkling clean and service was outstanding. The walkway across the street goes along the beach was great for an early morning walk.

Room Tip: Be sure to request an unobstructed view of the ocean if that's what you're seeking.
