This is a classic hotel in a fascinating location. Grounds are very fascinating. Sunday Buffet is absolutely outstanding. The flowers and location are just great. You can walk to the beach or just enjoy Santa Barbara.

We recently stayed for three nights and wished we were there for 3 weeks. Faultless service and a wonderful facilities including free use of the Olympic sized pool on the beach. The buffet breakfast was sublime - did not need to eat again for the rest of the day ! The bar tapas menu was uninspiring however and should be... More

We recently stayed at the Biltmore for the first time and were very impressed. The customer service was among the best I have ever received. The staff were remarkably helpful and courteous. Kevin at the front desk was especially impressive, providing a very welcoming experience and ensuring that we were well taken care of during our stay. Noah, one of... More

Although the grounds and hotel are beautiful the one negative is that you are near the train tracks and yes you can hear the train go by - the whistle does blow. Didn't hear it during the night thank goodness. The rooms ate nicely appointment and very comfortable - the staff us very accommodating & friendly

Such a beautiful hotel! It was our first stop in our California/Disneyland road trip. Totally worth it and wish we had stayed longer. The property is gorgeous, right on the beach. The Spanish style architecture and decor is so pretty and not overdone. Our room was really nice and comfortable- great bed, *great shower* and tub. Both restaurants have outdoor... More

It's different. It's unique. It's old California charm. It's the biltmore. In a world that seems a bit homogeneous, and where every hotel decor seems to be channeling the same 'hgtv' (home and garden tv) channel, time spent at the biltmore reminds you of how it used to be done. And it's good. It may be difficult to understand just... More

A California classic. Wonderful facility. Interesting mix of accommodations. Good food and service. Beautiful setting. Lovely gardens. 3 tennis courts. Close to shops and restaurants in Montecito. One of the best in the area.

I like being able to walked the beach. Nice a quiet setting. The neighbor hood is safe, clean, and easy walking. People I met on my walks were friendly and willing to visit with you about living there and making suggestions as what to see. I enjoyed my visit.

Clearly the best accommodations and service in town. We live locally and frequently come here for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and also occasionally for an overnight stay. The service at the hotel is extremely polished without at all being stiff. I truly believe the employees love working there. The food being put out of the kitchen is amazingly consistent every...
