The Castillo Inn is basically a motel, with a very small lobby and no other public area. The website advertises a fitness room with pool, but I saw no signs of either. The brochure at the hotel indicates these are "available" whatever that means - admittedly I didn't ask. We stayed 5 nights in a king room with patio, which... More

We were lucky to snag the last room available online a few days before visiting. We wish we had gotten to stay longer but were on a fast and furious road trip. The room was beautiful, spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. We found we had a personal connection as well; when we checked out in the morning we... More

Stayed here the last night of our holiday and had a wonderful time. The room was immaculate, great big bed and nice bathroom. Also free wifi, coffee machine, fridge and free breakfast. We arrived early but were able to check in and the man on reception was very helpful. From here you can easily walk into town and to the... More

We had a great experience at the Castillo Inn. We called ahead and were able check in a few hours early since our room was ready, which was very helpful since we had just arrived in Santa Barbara after a long drive. There were lots of maps and brochures in the check-in area which were helpful for planning things to... More

This place has it all. My husband and I stayed here for a couple of days before we drove up the coast to San Fran. We arrived early and the manager let us check in anyway. Our room was on the corner so it was very quiet and private. The room was lovely and clean. We stayed in a room... More

We stayed one night at Castillo Inn, when traveling from Las Vegas to San Francisco. We had a very nice stay after a long drive. I unfortunately forgot my tablet at the hotel, when we left. I didn't realize this before we arrived at the next hotel. Dan, the receptionist, had been very helpfull, both in terms of contacting me... More

We stayed one night in the 2 room suite while traveling through California touring colleges for our daughter. The room was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. I loved the tile in the bathroom. We were able to walk to the wharf and state street for a fun evening. We would definitely stay again and if my daughter chooses UCSB we... More

Stayed here for one night with my husband while we were in California for my work conference. So glad we chose Castillo Inn at the Beach for our night in Santa Barbara. Our room was beautiful- a corner king size room with a patio. Very clean and beautifully decorated. Walked the few short blocks down to Stearns Wharf for dinner.... More

My wife and I stayed in St. Barbara for only one night (should have spent more time). Our stay at the Inn was very pleasant and we felt we received great value for our money (around $100). The room (no. 17 with a queen bed) was spacious, so was the bathroom. WiFi worked fine - very good performance. When we... More
