Loved this place. They've got 23 rooms, all with fireplaces. Great pool, free continental breakfast and snacks. Tastings of local wines too! Concierge Rachel was a bucket of information about the area. WiFi included. Stayed one night, tried another place and came back 2 nights later for another night. Three blocks from the shopping/dining street (State Street).

Randy, Was a pleasure having you with us both times. I am glad we were able to get you back in for the end of your trip. Thank you for the review. I agree that it does feel a bit "Tuscan" around here and we appreciate the thought. We will see you on your next trip to Santa Barbara. Sincerely,... More

I was exceptionally pleased with our stay at the Spanish Garden in. When we arrived we were greeted warmly, offered water, ice tea, lemonade, coffee, or hot tea. Rachel personally showed us to our room and it was very clean and spacious. I instantly felt at ease. The major perks are the small size, it's quiet, onsite parking, and lovely... More

My sisters & mom booked a night stay here as part of my bachelorette festivities. They don't miss a detail at the Spanish Garden. The property and the rooms were immaculate. I felt tucked away in a quiet oasis as we relaxed on our patio and in the pool. The staff are more than accommodating. We returned from dinner with... More

We had an amazing time. The room, facilities and courtyard were all amazing. They have thought of everything and nothing is too much trouble. Sitting in the courtyard, watching hummingbirds, with a glass of wine was so relaxing. A must stay.

We were looking for a nice hotel in Santa Barbara (the relaxing portion of our vacation) and we hit the goldmine on this one! From the moment we walked in, we were greeting with nothing but warmth and hospitality. Pros: *Nice, central location. A little bit from the water, but just a few streets over from all of the shopping... More

Stayed two nights in Santa Barbara. Very relaxing hotel with room on second floor overlooking the pool. Since we enjoy walking we left our care in the underground lot and headed out. Breakfast was very good. Front desk staff very helpful.

the only thing I didn't like about this place is for a very expensive place you had to carry your heavy luggage up 2 flights of stairs. I personally would not go back there, the Canary hotel which our friends stayed there is must better
