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

Reasonably priced in comparison to other places. With a car it's a good location to everything on state st. Receptionist was really helpful and friendly and offering us another room as they'd allocated the one by the road for us. Room was clean and spacious with everything we need, clean comfy bed and quiet enough to sleep. Air con worked... More

I went to Santa Barbara for only 1 night and stayed Agave Inn. The rooms are very well maintained and excellently cleaned. I am allergic to dust, so I'm unable to sleep in dusty rooms. But I always slept well in their clean and comfortable rooms. Their continental breakfast has also improved significantly. Better coffee and choices of pastries. This... More

We stayed two nights in a clean room on the upper floor. When my older son decided to join us, we were provided with a rollaway bed, so we each had our own comfy spot. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. They do their best to answer any and all questions about the area, the gorgeous "American Riviera." No... More
