We drove up to Santa Barbara for a summer concert at the bowl. A local friend recommended us the Agave Inn. We booked our room last minute, the staff was super friendly and accommodating at checking us inn late after the concert. The rooms are tastefully decorated, very clean, and the beds feel like a cloud. The staff was beyond... More

Loved this spot and my stay here! I spent 3 nights at agave inn while santa Barbara during my drive up the coast from San Diego to sanfransisco. Honestly, I couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. First the staff are so kind and welcoming which made me feel comfortable and at ease especially being a solo female traveler. The...

Honestly, we were expecting to stay in a motel 6 for the night until I found this place--so glad I did. The staff member we interacted with was accommodating in more ways than one--more pillows, cups, early check in, and so on. The inn has a cute and urban Mexican theme, if you can imagine that. Very clean, and very... More

Santa Barbara accommodation is expensive… I didn’t realize this until I started to search for a one night spot. There are lots of bad options for accommodation in Santa Barbara, or places that are in fact not in Santa Barbara, so I was weary of where to pick for a good price. I ended up relying on TripAdvisor and this... More

We had a really great stay at agave inn. The rooms are comfortable, clean, pretty. The owner was lovely and very helpful. A great value for money! Only a couple minutes drive from the high street and the beach. We loved Santa Barbara and agave inn.

i stayed here for 1 night with my sister, the room was clean, pleasant and large (we were on the 2nd flour). breakfast was included in the price but it's basically coffee and bananas sitting on top of a closet- opposite the reception- there's no where to sit and eat it. all in all if you come expecting a clean...

We had a great stay at the Agave Inn and loved the motel & the staff. It's a friendly renovated drive up motel in a thriving, interesting area. There are restaurants and shops within walking distance and a big supermarket a couple of minutes up the street. The staff are very happy to provide you with a map, suggestions and... More

As a regular annual guest is so easy to highly recommend Agave Inn - efficient, warm & friendly check-in, *five-star staff*, ultra-clean, quiet & comfortable rooms/beds (flat screen satellite tv, mini-fridge, microwave, air-con/heat), complimentary breakfast to start your day (fresh fruit & baked goods, orange juice, coffee/tea), convenient location with much (supermarkets, restaurants, large shopping mall) in immediate area, easily...

We had two nights at the Agave. It's a simple but very nice motel, clean and spacious. We arrived after a long flight and a stressful drive on the racetrack/highway from LA. We were very tired and the carpark was full but the manageress moved her car so we could have her space. This was a simple but kind gesture... More

Chose to stay here in escaping the hostel/backpacking trail for a night's relaxation and privacy... The perfect balance of luxury and price! Bed was comfortable, soft sheets, clean room with all your basic needs. Location is fine for car drivers, easy 5 min cruise from down town, and supermarket and necessarily shops are just across the road. Staff super relaxed,... More
