Stayed here for only 1 night with my family of 4 and we all loved it. We had a late check out and were able to enjoy the pool and weight room. It's right in town so we could walk to dinner and made use of the free bikes. Staff were all super friendly and helpful. Would love to stay... More

We were hear for a wedding. It is a small hotel so it was so fun to keep running into everyone. service and staff were great. The rooms were small but we were never in the room. I would stay here again.

We stayed at the montecito inn during our honeymoon stay in California in August for one night. Unfortunately we were not in the hotel long as we arrived late but the room was clean, front desk very helpful, gym excellent and breakfast brilliant for a complimentary option. The location was great and hope to be back for longer one day.

Our early arrival was no problem, our room was ready. The rooms are small as one would expect in an older building, but charm is abundant (the elevator is the old "cage" variety) and every amenity is thoughtfully provided. Our corner king on the top (3rd) floor was at the front, facing the street that is very quiet in the... More

We stayed at the Inn while attending a wedding in Santa Barbara. It was mid-week and the staff, without asking, upgraded us to an apartment from the king room we had reserved. We didn't want to leave!! VERY spacious with incredible amenities such as a heated floor in the bathroom and TV's built into the bathroom mirror. I know this... More

Something a bit different on offer here, as you learn about its links with Charlie Chaplin and other movie stars of a similar era. Our room was a large suite, extravagantly furnished and really not expensive for what it was. Disappointing that they charged separately for the rollaway bed we had specified for the third member of our party. There... More

This is our favorite place to stay when we visit our daughter at school. It's in a great location, the staff is awesome. We loved the pool. The rooms are always clean. I would highly recommend staying here.

Great quaint hotel with amazing service. Sublime bedding and plush towels. Great breakfast buffet with fresh squeezed OJ, good coffee, designer power bars and amazing pastries not laden with sugar. Nicest folded toilet paper. Pool had great, noodles and sunscreen. Only disappointment was that it was not adult only, as kids ruined my zen moments. Staff thought of everything. While... More

We were driving PCH and decided to overnight in Santa Brbara. Hotwire offerred a pretty good deal for a 4 star in Santa Barbara (0 to 4.4miles). The Montecito is probably right on the edge of that boundary!! Its not in Santa Barbara but the small town of Montecito. That said, Montecito is a nice little place. Mix of restaurants... More

This hotel was nice and in a great area. The rooms were smaller than I thought they would be considering they are not in a city but the charm of the hotel makes up for it. The gym, pool, and restaurant make this a gem.
