Very charming hotel in a great location, within walking distance of State street. Breakfast is pretty basic, cereal, yogurt, bagels... they do offer a cheese spread with crackers and wine in the afternoon and cooking and milk at night. I was a bit disappointed with the cookies as I thought they would be housemade. However, all you get is oreos...... More

I am a frequent business traveler and choose the Upham whenever I need to stay in or around the Santa Barbara area. Wonderful rooms, amazing staff and terrific atmosphere. The adjoining restaurant is also quite amazing.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Upham for a couple of days while on business. It's a charming hotel made up of a few small buildings. Each room is private, nicely decorated, and well furnished. The grounds are peaceful and well maintained. There's a morning breakfast and afternoon wines and snacks. The on-site restaurant is good, although there... More

I've stayed there twice in the last two years. Charming hotel where incredible attention is given not only to the upkeep of the property but to customer service. Great experience both times I stayed(on business). Great restaurant within the hotel, though separately run.

Travelling as a couple, stayed for one night: Nice little hotel in downtown SB, quiet neighborhood, clean room, very small bathroom, typical American breakfast without any true healthy choices or fresh products, friendly and helpful people at the reception, parking lot in the premise, I would come back and recommend this B&B for short stays

Our stay at the Upham hotel was just wonderful! The hotel, staff, room, grounds, breakfast, lobby, was absolutely excellent. We stayed there for our anniversary and it is within easy walking distance to State st., and the beach. I was a little worried, because I read a review that the rooms in the hotel were not insulated very well for... More

I've stayed at this hotel a few times for business, and will continue to do so for many years to come. I like the location, as I can walk to the local restaurants and bars. They offer a complementary breakfast in the morning followed by wine and cheese in the early evening. To cap things off, milk and cookies in... More

We have been staying at the Upham for years. We love everything about the property - the rooms, the location, the gardens, the breakfast! The only quibble we've ever had was that some of the rooms did not have air conditioning. Since Santa Barbara has such a mild climate, a lack of air conditioning is usually not a huge deal,... More

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
