Nice little hotel

Would recommend Sun, Dec 20, 2015
The hotel is very appealing. Nicely decorated, very comfortable. Service staff very polite. Great location. Amazing linens! Put $60 on my card for incidentals and two days later still have not refunded. Bathrooms do not have fans. Heard gentleman in next room going to bathroom, clearing his throat, brushing his teeth, etc.. For the price we paid, it was well worth it.

Great two night stay

Would recommend Wed, Dec 9, 2015
Had a wonderful time at this historic hotel. We were upgraded to a beautiful room with two bathrooms. There are several great restaurants within walking distance and there are bikes available to use. Light breakfast included was a nice touch. We used the pool and hot tub with a friend that was staying close by. I would highly recommend this beautiful hotel.

Quaint Historic Inn

Would recommend Tue, Nov 3, 2015
My mom and I stayed here for a few nights as a home base for wine tasting and checking out SB and Montecito. It was really cute little hotel, great for walking to town and travel to nearby sites. The rooms and beds were great, clean good size and well decorated. My only complaint was that we were in a front street facing room and it was quite loud with the close street and hwy traffic. Also because it is older you could hear the people above us and maintenance/house keeping staff rolling there carts pretty clearly.

Great small hotel!

Would recommend Sun, Nov 1, 2015
This is an older, small boutique hotel with lots of atmosphere. The staff was wonderful & the rooms were comfortable. The bathroom was fairly small, but wasn't really a problem. Easy to walk to nice shops & restaurants as well as to the beach.

Very nice place to stay

Would recommend Sat, Aug 22, 2015
This is an older building, so it has charm -- big staircase to get upstairs, small but comfortable rooms, small elevator with steel cage type door, etc. The staff was excellent. The continental breakfast was very nice. Valet parking was relatively inexpensive. It reminded me strongly of many of the hotels I've stayed at in England and Scotland. They've done a nice job of making the old building very comfortable. I was going to meetings in Galeto, so I didn't have time to enjoy downtown Santa Barbara really, but it seemed like a good location for that.

Lovely historic hotel

Would recommend Thu, Jul 30, 2015
The Inn was very lovely and fairly priced. A slight downside was the location very near the freeway. Our room overlooked the roof and had a fair amount of freeway noise.

Nice location, you can walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. It is one of the nicest hotels in Montecito. It is the best place to stay if you are visiting Westmont college.

the hotel is very cute and clean, the only thing i did not like was the location, it is in montecito village and very close to the beach which is wonderful, but the freeway is right behind the hotel.
