We were in Santa Barbara for a wedding and stayed at the Castillo Inn. Dan at the front desk was great and really helped to make our stay the best. The rooms were really nice, clean and comfortable. The WIFI internet was the fastest of any hotel we have ever stayed at. The Inn is half a block from the... More

Check in was easy at this family owned property. An easy walk to the pier or State Street makes this a very affordable,convenient location. The continental breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, juices, yogurt and delicious local baked goods.

The “No Vacancy” sign at the Castillo Inn is a testament to the well-deserved popularity of this hotel – it’s an excellent value in a superb location. Simple to find, good parking, and friendly staff combined with a short walk (two blocks) to Santa Barbara’s waterfront make this an ideal choice if you’re only spending one night. You can check...

My husband and I stayed here one night in July and were very impressed. Very clean, very nice furnishings, comfortable bed, great water pressure. Right around the corner from the oceanfront. We didn't hear any street noise, and I'm a light sleeper. Pastries for the continental breakfast were amazing. Within walking distance of very good restaurants. We stay in Santa... More

We arrived at the Castillo Inn after a 4-hour drive, 5-hour flight to LAX, and another 2-hour drive to get there as our first stop on a drive up the coast. Our stay was not as fantastic as I'd hoped based on the reviews. The first thing I saw when I walked into our room was a huge brown spider!... More

Clean and comfortable. Service and continental breakfast excellent. 2 minute walk to ocean and excellent restaurants. Would definitely work well as a destination long weekend. Next time we'll plan on staying longer.

Spent one night whilst driving down the Californian Coast. Situated very near the waterfront giving good access to the main Santa Barbara attractions. Good sized room with complimentary wi-fi and light breakfast and small outside seating area. Apart from the waterfront itself the immediate area has many restaurants so no problem finding somewhere to eat. Friendly staff and very helpful... More
