Stayed here for 2 nights in April as part of our honeymoon roadtrip between LA and San Francisco. Pros: - Cute little motel with nice decoration. We were in room 23 which was a king room with a small sitting area and a sofa. - Value for money for Santa Barbara. We paid around £75 per night which is considerably... More

This hotel is a good place to stay if you travel like we do--spend most of your time in town, but just need a place to rest your head. Friendly service, very clean and comfortable room, nicely decorated. The bed is great. It's big and very comfy. The location is also fine. Even though it is ten minutes (at most)... More

On a whim, I called Agave on a Friday morning to see if they had availability for that night and Saturday. They did. I took it. We'd had a bad week - our 16-year-old dog passed away - and I thought it would be better for my family if we got away for the weekend. I'm glad the Agave was... More

We stayed here for one night during our road trip through the west coast. We found it very clean and well decorated, with fully equipated rooms. The price was afordable. It's a really good deal. It's a very small and familiar hotel and the woman at reception, Susanne, was very friendly.. I would repeat!

What a great find! This cute roadside motel off of State Street is a great stay in Santa Barbara. The price was perfect and it is just a 5 minute drive to the city center where all of the action is. Considering the prices in downtown SB, this hotel was great....and the parking was free! The room was quiet at... More

Very friendly, personal little inn rather than soulless motel. Our room was very bright and airy, very clean, good bed. It is a little far from downtown but doesn't really matter. Don't rely on breakfast as it is very limited. We stayed 3 nights and would stay again.

We were passing through Santa Barbara. This place was perfect and excellent value. Comfy beds. Rooms were sparse but more than adequate. There was a microwave, fridge, iron. No cutlery or plates. A paper cup would have been handy to heat water in the microwave. Plastic cups provided plus the usual soaps/shampoos. There were several close by places to eat.... More

Stayed there with my partner for one night. The room and bathroom was very clean, and the furniture was very nice and comfortable. For a motel the receptionist was very helpful where to get food or about Santa Barbara. For the Prize very good and very central. The prize was very good>! i would book there again!

I contacted the Agave Inn because I had seen an article in the Los Angeles Times regarding affordable STAYS in Santa Barbara. Well, from making the reservation, to checking in and out, it was an easy stay. The room was clean, HD TV, comfy bed, breakfast in the morning along with, the L.A. Times set out for the occupants.

For the money I'd give it 5 stars. Really comfy bed. Good wifi signal. Clean room and all quite new. Coffee and muffins for breakfast and close access to restaurants, supermarkets etc. The lady on reception was really nice and helpful too and although the room was close to a main road it was surprisingly quiet at night.
