Tried this based on internet comments and it did not fail us. What a charming place. The rooms are uniquely decorated with something other than "hotel furniture". The bathrooms are beautiful with separate filtered water. It is close to everything and the harbor/beach is right across the street. They sell out constantly, so plan ahead. They do have rooms with... More

We had a night at the Castillo as part of a recent road-trip and were pleasantly surprised. At the time of booking the room seemed expensive, $200 for the night. It seems that Santa Barbara accommodation is a little more expensive generally, and in hindsight it was only a few dollars more than our previous nights accommodation, but easily ten... More

I wished I was staying longer. The large room was in great shape, with good lighting and pleasant decor. The faucet for filtered drinking water was a great touch and just the right height to fill a thermos or water bottle. Very convenient to the beach and shopping. The continental breakfast was a few simple items to grab at the... More

Went to SB for a one night getaway. Saw on Trip Advisor that this hotel got good ratings. Decided to try it out and was pleasantly surprised. Clean, cool, love the wood shutter's & a nice size room. Very relaxing sitting on you private patio with a nice size table and lounge chair. Free continental breakfast with a small assortment... More

I have stayed at Castillo Inn multiple times. Dan (the manager) makes this Inn the wonderful place it is. It is clean, cozy, easy parking, and close to the beach and city college. This time I am thrilled to stay in the two bedroom suite. It has cozy living room, full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 3 tv's., soaker size tub, and... More

I took my mom to Santa Barbara for her 80th birthday and wanted something special for her. I booked this hotel after reading numerous reviews. We stayed in room 32, the 2 bedroom suite, which was more like an apartment. It had 2 bedrooms and full kitchen. The stainless steel/granite kitchen was a great bonus and came fully stocked with...

Beautifully decorated, and clean but stale smoke smell everywhere. Had to ask the housekeeper for Lysol the smell was so pungent. Even the pillows and sheets smelled. The bed was too soft and pillows were flat. The breakfast consisted of muffins and coffee, that's all. If you are expecting more you will be disappointed.

We only stayed here one night, but I would definitely come back again for a longer stay. Beautifully appointed room. Close to the beach and tons of restaurants. Excellent value as well. No pool...but that's ok...the ocean is just steps away.

Exceedingly clean and a great value. The beach is within a very short walk as are other area attractions. Many nice restaurants are just a few steps away. Next time we're up that way, Castillo Inn at the Beach will be our first choice.

The Inn is small but beautifully designed, the rooms were very comfortable and bathroom was very clean with plenty of towels.Great location really close to the sea side and all the restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay here. Quick easy check in and check out perfect for us as we just stop for a night on our way to SF.
