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

We stayed overnight at the Coast Village Inn in Montecito for a quick getaway to visit with friends from Santa Diego. The upstairs room overlooking the ocean was clean and cozy. The room are adequate, but certainly not spacious by any means and the adjoining bathroom lacked counter space and could only accommodate one person at a time as it... More

We (2 adutls & 2 kids) stayed here for 1 night. We had a room (#19?) with a convertible sofa and a Queen bed. Sleeping on the sofa was fine for us as we're not picky, but it may not be good enough for people looking for a harder mattress. The room was very nice, located right by the pool... More

The Montecito Inn is a hidden gem and I confess a divine surprise in the heart of Montecito. The room, elegantly appointed, exuded character and style usually exclusive to a 5 star hotel. The queen bed and sofa sleeper both had high quality, major compfy mattresses and in inordinate amount of room for my son and me. The room did... More

We spent two nights here. We had an upstairs unit on the back side of the hotel. This was great, as Coast Village road runs parallel to Hwy 101, so the front side has freeway noise all the time. The room was clean and quiet, but as I said in the title, the rooms are beginning to need a renovation.... More

This hotel is a great value for the area! The service is outstanding and the staff are very friendly. We traveled with our 13 year old son so We reserved the Queen suite with a sofa sleeper. It was perfect for our family. I loved the vouchers to Jeanine's Bakery. The food is great and you may run into movie... More

We stayed one night at this hotel, and everything was nice. The hotel is a little bit far from the beach, but there are restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Nice neighborhood, very calm. The bathroom is very small, the bedroom size is comfortable. There is no breakfast, but you receive a US$ 5,00 voucher to use in a bakery near... More

Came in to the Santa Barbara 1 day earlier than expected and scrambled for a place to stay on the fly. I was totally surprised as to what $140 bought. It wasn't because it was some fancy hotel located in a great area, it was a very decent hotel located in a very nice area. The rooms were clean and... More
