Adequate except for the "free breakfast," which consists of a few items placed on a ledge outside the building, and the door locks - more below. The motel is clean and the neighborhood seems safe, but the place has little else to distinguish it - it's extremely basic. The door locks are not acceptable - you have to remember to... More

The property is beautiful, quaint and unique! We only stayed one night but we wished we stayed longer - the room was so big and cozy! We arrived late but we found the manager no problem, and there's lots of great food in the area.

I stayed at Agave for a weekend and I got to say that I would stay there again. The staff is very welcoming and friendly; they help me by giving me directions and tips about places to eat at. Definitely the best bang for the buck.

Would stay here again! Great price in a great area. Clean rooms, and really friendly staff. There are just a few reasons why I didn't give it a 5. 1) beds weren't super comfy. They were fine, but could have been better, or at least better pillows. 2) we were a the room second from the street so it was... More

Hi, We stayed in Santa Barbara only for 1 night. We came late at night, but still was a plenty of parking in the hotel. Reception was already closed, but the manager left our room open, so it was very convenient. The room was small but destined very beautiful and cozy. Very nice hotel, very recommended!!

We stayed at the Agave Inn for two nights as we worked our way down from San Francisco to San Diego. Wendy, the owner, is a lovely woman who was very helpful when we arrived letting us know about the local area. The room we had was small but done beautifully. You can see Wendy has an eye for art....

I cannot recommend this place highly enough, we were supposed to be carrying on to another place but we decided to stay an extra night instead. Great location, over the road from a mall that has everything a traveller needs. The rooms are comfortable, well-decorated and spotlessly clean and the staff were all very helpful and accomodating. We'll be back.

This was an excellent motel on the outskirts of Santa Barbara. The rooms were very comfortable and well equipped. Breakfast was very basic but there was a terrific French cafe in the shopping centre, 2 minutes walk away. The same shopping centre had a very good supermarket and Harry's restaurant in the same complex had great atmosphere. The receptionist at... More
