3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at this hotel earlier this month and it was just ok. It's new so it's clean but it feels a little cheaply done and the room we stayed in was almost underground. And it was wheel chair /Old folks accessible, which is fine except it's not the sexiest of vibes for a young couple. I guess if one... More

The service provided by Alexis at Hotel Indigo and Bridget at the Blue Tavern Restaurant next door was outstanding! I highly recommend this hotel...the rooms are compact but the friendly and helpful staff more than make up for it! Alexis went above and beyond giving restaurant recommendations and helping us plan the perfect itinerary for our short trip!

I just was completely dumbfounded at the lack of space in this $300+ a night hotel. I would never stay there again. If you are alone, the room would work I guess. But for two people, it's simply claustrophobic! The positives really, the ONLY positive is that it is in a good location. I just wish I would have searched... More

Small hotel with great amenities--delicious restaurant, nice fitness center, excellent staff, uniquely designed room, outdoor space, and the most comfortable bed ever! Great location on State Street and just a block from the beach! So many restaurants in the area and cute little shops and coffee bars.

I have lived in SB for years but most recently been living in various cities around the US. A great opportunity brought us back to SB but until the official relocation happened I was in SB without a place to stay. I chose the Hotel Indigo due to previous meetings that I have held in the Chicago property. Needless to... More

The room was very European. It was small but very well done. Staff was friendly and helpful and the location is very nice. The beach and pier are wonderful. The restaurant next door was nice. Quick walk to the beach and easy ride to the highway.

The company I work for has an office in Santa Barbara and I travel there often. I always stay at the Hotel Indigo because it is fun and non traditional. The staff is always really professional and helpful. There is not a lot of turn over so I get to know the staff.

As a platinum member I am never disappointed with my stays! The staff is always cheerful and wanting your stay to be wonderful! So close to the beach, and My room is not near the train tracks, so for me it is quiet. The evening cocktail hour is a nice touch to the ambience. People complain of the small rooms,... More

Loved the hotel look and design. Its a very artsy hotel and has a European feel design with the way the rooms are made. The location is right by the beach and that's a plus since Im a beach goer. The only bad thing about the hotel its by the train tracks and the train woke me up in the... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Indigo. The staff was helpful and friendly, and the hotel is very well located at the end of State Street near the beach. The hotel is very clean and has modern decor and comfortable beds. They also have wine and cheese in the evenings, which is a nice touch. The only complaint I... More
