Its a good hotel to stop by. One must visit if they want to go for a small vacation in SB, CA. The food (breakfast) is good however have limited varieties in the menu. They shall increaser the no. of items in breakfast. Also the area is too small for having breakfast.

A Beautiful Hotel with reminders of the 1920's and plenty of luxury in the room; the most comfortable bed we have had. We stayed in a mountain view king room which is away from the nearby highway 101. The staff are very friendly, the valet parking is cheap compared to other hotels we have stayed at, the breakfast is nice... More

My wife surprised me by having our bags all packed and in the trunk of the car when I came home. She kidnapped me for our 25th anniversary and took me to Santa Barbara for a long weekend. The Montecito Inn was originally owned by Charlie Chaplin. It still has the ambience of that time period. After staying in 2... More

We just returned from staying overnight at the Montecito Inn in Santa Barbara. We were surprised to be upgraded to the Luxury King Suite. Wow! Our room was very quiet, clean, comfortable and LUXURIOUS! We have stayed in nice suites before, but this has to be our favorite. The parking was $8/night and that was indoor parking by a valet,...

Our favourite stay of our California trip. We loved this place. Everything about this place was top notch - the rooms were spacious, clean and the beds very comfortable. The food in the restaurant and breakfast cafe very "clean" and delicious. The Inn was very charming, upscale and contemporary yet you had that 1920's feel while staying there. There was... More

Stopped at this hotel on our drive from SF to LA. Really easy to find, just off Route 101. We were met with a warm and friendly welcome, room was lovely and clean and the restaurant was fantastic, we had dinner and a small but tasty continental breakfast. This is a great hotel, full of character but still rates highly... More

We were recommended The Montecito Inn by a friend for a low-key weekend getaway. Was not disappointed! Hotel is well maintained, rooms are newly renovated (but still keep their old charm), and the staff is very nice and helpful. Highlights include the complimentary continental breakfast, free bikes to ride downtown (20 minute ride or so on the bike path) and... More

I loved that this place was small and not part of a hotel chain. If you are looking for classy, quiet yet vibrant, a great breakfast, modern chic upgrades (except the bathroom) and in the best location this is your place. Pros: Cool elevator! It's original to the hotel. FREE (yes free) beach cruisers to rent. That is a savings... More
