We come here to recharge and have a quiet and relaxing time. The Upham is within walking distance of things to do but we spend most of our time here kicking back in the garden or on the terrace. The rooms and cottages are quaint and comfortable. We've stayed in the Country House. While in the house is quiet, it... More

Hotel was even better than expected. Room was lovely, bed VERY comfortable. This was our first vacation with our friends and I chose the Upham, using TripAdvisor - relied heavily on the reviews. Was a bit nervous, but we all loved it! Pretty garden, wonderful welcome by the staff! Had great dinner at the restaurant, too.

I spent an evening at the Upham recently (6/19/15) by myself and had a perfect stay. The staff couldn't possibly have been more helpful, suggesting a nearby place to get a mani-pedi and mapping out a running route the next morning. My room was quiet, the bed was very comfortable and breakfast was delicious. The grounds are gorgeous and the... More

I came to stay at Upham Hotel and Country House with my 91 year old Mother. Todd, who checked us in at a late hour because our Amtrak train arrival was 6 hours late , was so helpful and courteous! He was more helpful and cheerful than you'd expect ! Our stay was most comfortable and the breakfast offered was... More

On our first visit to Santa Barbara, we were pleasantly surprised by the charm and quaintness of the Upham. In addition, the extra attention by the staff was much appreciated. The small touches were very nice. There was always something special waiting for the quests in the lobby. The room and were spotless and spacious. A great experience.

My fiance had always wanted to stay at The Upham so he booked us a room one weekend when we met with our wedding planner. It looks lovely on the outside and I was excited to get inside! The lobby area is really quaint and charming; definitely has that beachy cape cod type of feel. I believe there's also a... More

When we bring guests to town for a work function, we always start with the Upham. Our guests have never been disappointed, finding the hotel to be lovely and even luxurious. Breakfast is served early enough for the guests to be ready to start the work day, yet they are also conveniently located near a host of great restaurants for... More

We were lucky enough to find The Upham Hotel while driving around Santa Barbara for a place to stay the Friday night before the Memorial Day weekend. The hotel area and grounds are immaculate and very well cared for. We thoroughly enjoyed our short overnight stay here. To sum it up : - The room was spacious and the bathroom... More

I came to the hotel early evening, without a reservation, and the staff at the front desk were incredibly warm and helpful. They took the time to show us two rooms in the B&B across the street. By the time we dropped off our bags and grabbed dinner we were exhausted. So we came back to the B&B to find... More

This is a lovely hotel to stay at . It is walking distance to the restaurants and shops on State Street. This is where the hub of the city resides. The grounds are beautifully manicured and very pleasant to relax around. The continental breakfast is delicious with many choices to pick from. If you are looking for a romantic get... More
