Great location in Montecito near shops, restaurants and local zoo and bird refuge. Downtown Santa Barbara is a 10 minute drive away, depending on the traffic. Our room was clean and quiet, although a little tight for 4 when fold away bed was down. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Coupon for $5 off breakfast at Jennine's, a short... More

Stayed in a queen suite with the family for 5 nights. Kids loved it and there was plenty of space for everyone and they had a blast swimming in the pool. Great location across from the Coffee Bean and down the street from Von's and Starbucks. For the cost you can't beat it. We love montecito and the staff here... More

Found this place by accident on a recent road trip. We were going to be in town the following weekend and quickly googled the place. Being somewhat of a hotel snob, I was pleasantly surprised that I really liked this place. It has been renovated, but it kept a lot of its original charm. They have actual keys for the... More

Recently spent a night here of a road trip a friend and I were making along the Pacific Coastal Highway. The places to stay were pretty much randomly selected on availability and price. This matched both of those and became the best place to stay on the whole trip. The rooms were really well decorated and were a great place... More

This motel has been operating in Montecito for many years. It is the only reasonably priced motel in Montecito. The rooms are small, but clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is located at the lower village of Montecito with numerous nice stores and good restaurants.

Montecito has something for everyone so if you are looking for a Ritz or Four Seasons type of experience, then head down to the Four Seasons. If you are looking for an unpretentious, family friendly or weekend getaway with friends experience, at an affordable price, Coast Village is your best bet in Montecito. It's on the main road in town,... More

Just arrived home for a weeks stay at the CV Inn. Very pleasant and friendly staff. When we checked out we were not offered a receipt, this did not cause any alarm because we thought we were aware of the total to be charged. Asbsolutely disgusted to find that I have been sent an electronic receipt that includes a charge... More

Not one of the cheapest places we stayed in (with my son on our 3 weeks touring), but as local colleagues commented, a really good price for staying in Montecito, Santa Barbara. Simple inn, friendly staff, clean rooms, a poll, free parking, hiring bikes for free. The solution about breakfast (in Jeannie's bakery in the vicinity, you will meet several... More

Time flies and things change. And that includes the CVI. The last time I stayed here must have been 20 years ago. It was just OK then--great location but pretty ho-hum, quaint lodgings. Nice transformation in the years since. It's winter now so the issue that other guests have noted about no A/C was certainly not a problem. I called... More

The Coast Village Inn is a nice place perfectly located in Montecito. The rooms are just fine but I would opt for the upstairs units, especially the corner twin bed room on the end. The downstairs suite is OK too if you want to cook. The pool facility is well kept too, but this hotel is pretty much for sleeping... More
