We loved this place! Rooms are small, but cozy. Service was great and all staff were super attentive to our needs. Only downside was a low pressure shower head, which still does not change our rating. A good stay and only a few minutes from downtown SB.

We stayed here for a wedding at the really expensive Biltmore which was just around the corner. Rooms slightly small and not much privacy as people walk past your window on the top level rooms. Also quite noisy as walls very Jin. That said the rooms are clean, pool area is great and the little cafe down the road Jeannies... More

So so pleased with this gem in Montecito. My favorite amenity was cruiser bikes available for rent during the day FOR FREE! Fantastic and central location for a reception at the Four Seasons Biltmore and wedding at San Ysidro ranch. Walls are a bit thin and would be great to have access to a laundry machine, but those little things... More

It was inexpensive, but it was still a tiny room with no a /c. The area was kind of business like, but a few restaurants close by and a quick walk to the beach. Unremarkable is probably the best word.

The Coast Village Inn is a very clean and perfectly located hotel in Montecito. Santa Barbara is a quick 5 minute drive to state street. Montecito has many very good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel and there is a Von's shopping center again within walking distance with many great shops. I really like the Montecito area. The one... More

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
