After reading all the good reviews for this place, we decided to book it. For the price we couldnt refuse. Place was really cute and room was a good size. We had 2 adults and 2 kids. Kids had a pull out couch bed. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was a good size. Nice little balcony with table and 2 chairs.... More

The property has only 20 rooms, is very modern with nice furnishings, clean and comfortable. They say they are at the beach but really it is located at the harbor so getting to a swim able beach takes a little walking/driving. Being in this location really requires a car for visiting State Street and downtown as well as most of... More

Stayed in two different rooms here while in SB - the 2 bedroom suite and a room with 2 queens. We're a family of 4. The suite was amazing - very roomy, comfortable and nicely decorated. We'll definitely plan ahead next time and reserve this for our next stay. Huge value for what you get for your money. The other... More

We had really nice stay in Castillo Inn. The bathroom felt luxurious and everything was clean and pretty. I'd give 5 stars but the breakfast was poor (but there is absolutely fantastic breakfast place near (called Sambo's On The Beach)) and there wasn't closed captioning-option on TV. My husband uses hearing aids and finds TV's closed captioning really helpful, so... More

The inn is located about two blocks off the 101 expressway and one block from Santa Barbara's marina and beaches so that I feel you couldn't get a much better location. Our room was very clean and, I felt, had better furnishings and amenities than are normally found in lodging of its type.

I am so pleased I found this gem. I enjoy staying in different rooms each time. So far no favorites although the two bedroom suite is stunning and so much room at a great price off season.Rooms are spotless with so much attention to detail. The pulls and knobs are brass. There is a fridge in each room. There is... More

Excellent location, very helpful staff, easy parking. Our room (#28 upstairs) was large, quiet, very well appointed and tasteful. The ensuite was stone tiled and good quality. As a value for money proposition, it is hard to beat. Would definitely stay there again.

Just simple a great place to stay hands down this was my first time staying at Castillo Inn, it was just over the shoulders with their customer service and the room was up to par. I was in town for a Santa Barbara City College golf outing. I had drove in from Dallas, Texas it was almost like sleeping at... More

We have nothing but positive things to say about the accommodations...roomy, clean, comfortable, terrific location, easy check in and check out, terrific value! Really a "boutique" like feel. Parking is convenient...but a bit tight. Continental breakfast is very basic, but there are very good full breakfast options within walking distance. We were only passing through Santa Barbara, so only stayed... More

This cute little inn is clean, quiet and well run. Efficient, friendly check in/out. Like the pictures, the rooms are updated rooms with a sitting area. The bed and pillows are very comfortable which you can never tell by the pictures. We asked for a room(#21 queen bed) towards the back part so it was quiet. The inn is u-shaped... More
