Of all the places we searched to stay in Santa Barbara, this one stuck out. It looks like a motel on the outside, but the property is beautifully kept and sits next to a park so street traffic and noise is not a problem. The rooms a tastefully decorated and the staff is very friendly and knowledgable.

The reception was really friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and bathroom had complimentary shampoos etc. Beds were really comfy. Parking was free and there were plenty of spaces in front of the room. Good location! Short walk to the marina(5min) and to the city center(10-15min). We would stay again!

Castillo Inn at the Beach is a small quaint hotel. The location is a walking distance to the beach, the wharf and the Santa Barbara harbor. Restaurants offering good food with awesome views are nearby. The room we stayed in though simple, was very clean. The bathroom was very clean. Linens were crisp and clean. Bed was comfortable. The hotel... More

My boyfriend and I decided to stay here on NYE night after researching multiple hotels/motels/inns and surprisingly the rates at the Castillo inn for NYE were not ridiculously outrageous. It was such a pleasant surprise. We stayed in a standard double queen room which was so spacious, you could've fit a third bed in the room! Not only was it... More

Me and my fiancé stayed only one night at Castillo inn and that for me was enough. It had pleasant decor and great service, but is unfortunately situated next to a railway track. With tooting trains that went on from late to early hours of the morning. Not a good sleep.

We loved the double room suit which came with a full equipped kitchen and a living room. Clean. I gave 4 stars because the sink in the bathroom was clogged and although the hotel does provide continental breakfast, it is in the tinny lobby with no seating so you can take a cup of tea, a muffin and a fruit...

Great location, right across the marina and only 10 minutes walk to the wharf. As this place is a bit far from the hustles of state street, it is very quiet at night. Easy to get in from 101 as well, only couple of minutes from the exit. Room was huge, clean and very comfortable. Hotel premise was nicely kept.... More

This is by far the best room and inn in SB for the price. You can spend more than $300 in this city but why when you have Castillo Inn? This is just a beautiful place, comfortable bed, details are quite upscale such as the granite counters, bronze fixtures and purified water in bathroom. The lights are all on dimmers...nice... More

This hotel located off of main street, but still close enough to walk to State Street or to the beach. Easy parking. No complaints about a room or a bathroom. They don't have a place to have breakfast, so you have to take your coffee and a muffin (that is all you have here for breakfast) from the lobby to... More

Gorgeous room and patio, got the king with sofa for just over a hundred dollars. Amazing customer service from Dan and Noah. Just a few minutes' walk away from the best restaurant in town: Toma. About twenty minutes from downtown and the funk zone. Great location, clean and comfortable.
