My wife and I recently enjoyed a one night, mid-week stay at the Upham. We chose to stay in one of their lovely cottages that are located at the rear of the property. It was very private and gave us the feeling of a fine bed and breakfast. The grounds were gorgeous and just outside our room was a lush... More

My husband & stayed at the upham for two nights while on a tour of California for our honeymoon. We stayed in a delightful garden cottage right on the main lawn. The room was clean, comfortable nicely decorated. Only complaint is the lack of ac, it was extremely hot and although we had the ceiling fan and a floor fan... More

Love the Upham! This was my third time staying there. It is consistently clean,comfortable, and very relaxing. About a 5-10 minute walk to State Street. The garden and courtyard area is beautiful, and is a nice place to sit and enjoy the late afternoon wine and cheese. I will definitely be back!

Have stayed here several times for work, always very nice with great service. Rooms range from very nice to european small, but the bathrooms are standard size and over all, very nice. Easy walk to nice eateries in Santa Barbara.

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Upham Hotel two years in a row. I was there on a three day business retreat. The hotel set up a conference room with all of the necessary equiptment needed for our conference. The staff were all very accomodating and made sure we had refreshments throughout the day from water, tea, coffee,... More

My friend and I traveled to Santa Barbara and chose the Upham Hotel for our stay. I was a bit concerned as there were some reviews that made me think it may not be as we were hoping for. However, the minute we arrived, we knew we made the right choice. The outside and grounds are beautiful. We instantly felt... More

I LOVED the Upham Hotel. I felt so comfortable and I was able to walk to my business meetings downtown. I will probably never choose another hotel whenever I'm in Santa Barbara. I would love to have stayed longer in the garden soaking up the ambiance. I will definitely be back>

Had the pleasure of staying here recently. The Upham has all a guest could want. Brilliant service, beautiful surroundings and complimentary breakfast,afternoon cheese and wine and to ensure no one goes hungry to bed Oreos and milk. Tea and coffee were available throughout the day, also free of charge. Our double Queen room was clean and tastefully decorated. If I... More

The Upham is a lovely place to stay. Outside, it has a real old style American look. Inside, it feels like an English country house hotel. Our room was in the main building, although other rooms are in separate buildings around a central garden. The room was small, but perfectly adequately equipped. We had very efficient air conditioning, although other... More

Went for 1 sat. night w/o a reservation. I'm a planner, so this is rare. It was the end of summer and most of the smaller hotels/B&B's were booked. From the phone call to Charlie to the breakfast the next day, we had a 10+ experience. We drove in late and made the wine & cheese hour, while Charlie checked... More
