There are only three hotels in Montecito proper. The Biltmore is so expensive it's not even on my radar. That leaves Montecito Inn and The Coast Village Inn. Both I believe are owned by same people and are a block from each other. I have stayed in both. Coast village is the lesser expensive. It is old, as is Montecito... More

I really want to be able to return to this awesome motel and not have to compete with other people or higher prices, but it was such a surprising and wonderful discovery that I am morally obligated to share. This lovely hotel was a shockingly good value in Montecito. The hotel is located right in the center of town and... More

Short and sweet. Best value in the best location. Can rent bikes and ride to water activities in Santa Barbara. This Room was booked through Hotels.com which just iced the cake. Clean room, comfortable surroundings and accommodating staff. The coffee, complementary was awesome! I would recommend it and be sure to discover the secret pathway to the beach, unbelievable.

We were looking for a convenient place to stay and to use as a base while we were in the Santa Barbara area, this place worked out very well. A very nice clean comfortable room with a breakfast voucher to a great cafe (Jeannines) just down the street. This inn is just to the north of 1-101 which makes it... More

When you are looking for a value hotel on a shoestring budget, this is the hotel for you. It is clean and on the small side. Would recommend getting a top floor room or one on the end as the walls conduct noise easily (bring earplugs). The staff in the front office--both shifts--were extremely nice and helpful. There is tea... More

While driving from San Francisco to San Diego on Highway 1 we sort of stumbled upon the Coast Village Inn. Booked for 1 night but stayed for 2. Excellent reception from staff, simple but very clean room and comfortable bed. Great place to relax for a couple of nights. Small and clean pool with a few sunbeds. Vouchers from reception... More

We went here with friends who are regulars including someone who uses it on business. We booked well ahead (3 months) and choose King rooms, front facing. The rooms are simple and the beds are heavenly. However, on our first night all hell broke loose when a wedding party returned and continued to party on the stairs, on the landings,... More

I was interested in booking this Motel / Hotel for a week or two in the near future so went personally to the "Office" - and requested to take a look at a room if possible as it could be more than a couple of weeks. Possible - at 3pm - ? No, apparently all 27 rooms were occupied at... More

My husband and I felt we needed to get some cool ocean breeze after a very hot week where we lived. Santa Barbara sounded great but we had a hard time finding a hotel that was not way overpriced or booked. We finaly found Coast Village Inn, not exactly in Santa Barbara but in the beautiful village of Monticito just... More

This place is charming and great value. Some of the earlier historic reviews may or may not be justified . There are some people who will never be satisfied and they always write a review to tell others . Thankfully they will not be at the Coast Village Inn and better for it. The price is always right .
