We recently spent 2 nights here while making our way down the PCH and really loved it. The Inn is quick walk to the beach and Harbor Area. Rooms are very comfortable and decorated with a Southwestern charm. We had a king patio so we were able to sit outside at night but there is no view. Bed furnishings were... More

Finding a reasonably priced place to stay in Santa Barbara can be a challenge! The Castillo Inn is one block off of the ocean and offers a beautiful ambiance to enhance your stay in Santa Barbara. The rooms are spacious and nicely appointed. The grounds are packed with lovely flowers and trees to compliment the southwest architecture of the Inn.... More

What a gem! We stayed here after driving down the coast from San Francisco. We arrived late (10:00pm) and Dan at the front desk was more than helpful. He gave us a map and gave us some breakfast suggestions along helpful beach information (my kids were dying to swim in the ocean). The room was way bigger than I thought... More

Castillo St. in Santa Barbara is a nice, quiet street near the beach with a number of hotels and inns on it. However, there was only one with a “no vacancy” sign on it that we saw – Castillo Inn. It’s easy to understand why. Castillo Inn is a beautiful, quaint inn decorated with lots of flowers. The rooms are... More

We spent 2 nights here on a trip down the PCH. It's just around the corner from the marina. Restaurants, the beach, the pier and Stearns wharf are all a short walk. The rooms have been recently been updated, so everything is very comfortable.

Castillo Inn is located about a 1 minute walk from the main street at the beach. Nice park across the street. Very good eateries within short walking distance and also Stearns wharf is closeby. Great place for a weekend getaway.

An older style property. All one level. Free parking. Yay! Small breakfast included - muffins, pastries, juice, coffee, fruit. More than enough to start the day. Owner / Manager (?) very friendly and helpful. Gave us some good maps and tips. Room was on the large-ish size as was the bathroom. Plenty of space. Bed was comfortable. Very quiet room... More

This is very unassuming property until you open the door to your room and are amazed! The rooms are huge and extremely well appointed. There are 3 in our family and I used the sofabed and it was the best I have ever slept on. The A/C unit in the room is very good and allows you to keep the... More

This inn is adorable and very affordable. It's within walking distance to the beach. The front desk employee was very nice and helpful, offering maps and advice when we checked in. We would definitely stay here again.
