Good location on Montecito's main street and 10 min walk from the beach. The hotel is quite basic. My room was pretty small with a dated bathroom. Room walls are very thin, so I could endulge on the conversation and activity in the next rooms. Hotel staff were nice and attentive. Breakfast was basic, but there was coffee available all... More

We stayed here three nights while our daughter was looking at colleges in the area. We were able to walk to area restaurants and Starbucks is not far away. The Valet workers were awesome, they went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. The tub/shower was a bit unusual and would be hard for some... More

Needed an overnite stay in the Santa Barbara area and since it was spring break, decided to avoid the beach areas in favor of Montecito. Chose the Montecito Inn as we had stayed there some time ago and wanted to revisit. The price point was very fair for such a convenient location and service oriented spot. The room, though small,...

Got a good deal on a Couple's Getaway Package here and scheduled a two night stay. We got to the Inn early and were able to check in without delay. The staff is magnificent and so very friendly. They provided helpful information on local things to do, good restaurants in the area and driving directions. The room was a little... More

We came to the Montecito Inn because it was on our way north to Seattle and mainly because they had a Tesla charging station in the valet. It was free for hotel guests. The hotel is nice and vintage. We only stayed one night, but the staff was very pleasant and helpful. There was a nice cafe on the property... More

The Montecito Inn is truly a quaint and wonderful place to stay. It has the feel of a bed a breakfast for a full service hotel with a pool, fitness room, and restaurant. Just a few steps outside the hotel are small shops, art galleries, and other great restaurants to try out. Santa Barbara was also surprisingly just a few... More

This lovely inn, built by Charlie Chaplin, in the delightful village of Montecito neighboring Santa Barbara charms us every time! The overall quality, decor and furnishings throughout, and town(s) around, everything about this place, feels just right each time we visit. If you'll be in the Santa Barbara area, it's really hard to improve on on a stay here.

I had seen bad reviews and it's not bad at all. In fact, we were very impressed with the decor. Yes, our room was small, but who spends so much time in their room anyway? I loved the updated furnishings and bedding, but glad they maintained the historical bathroom tiles. I had read about noise from other reviews so I... More

I recently checked into the Montecito Inn post surgery, so I could recover in a quiet, peaceful space. I got exactly what I needed. My newly renovated room was beautiful, quiet and when the shades were drawn - was very dark. Sleeping in that bed was like sleeping on a cloud - the linens were so fresh and crisp and... More
