Stayed for one night with a family of three. Large spacious room with comfortable new beds. Well decorated and colorful. Pleasant change from typical drab and boring chain hotel rooms. Very clean and quiet location. Easy to find. Too far away from downtown to walk but only about 5 min away by car. Parking was limited so we had to... More

When I first looked into the hotel, it seemed really small. However as I approached the check-in desk, the staff was fast to respond. So, check-in process was easy and fast. Although the queen room was very small, the bed was very clean. Another thing is that the rooms smelled really nice. They were also really generous to give us... More

We had a lovely night in this cosy hotel: loved we the way it was decorated; the lady was adorable and enthusiastic about recommending us nice places to visit in the area; the room was extremely clean and spacious.

Enjoyed staying at Agave Inn. Very clean room with comfortable bed and beddings. Super friendly service. Susan and Wendy who run the place made sure that our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. Highly recommend to others and definitely will come back.

This was lovely (once we found it!), checked in really easily, we were given lots of advice about the area and recommendations on where to eat, were even sent an email with lots of info. Room was really big and very clean, shower was heaven too! Free wifi was great and didn't drop out, a must when travelling with your... More

My wife and I saw the Agave as we drove past it last year and thought it looked like a fun place to stay. We found it when we were planning a trip this year and decided to give it a go. We loved it. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the management was friendly and welcoming. We could... More

The Agave Inn is managed by the same great team who used to run the late, lamented Presidio Motel down the street -- so whenever I'm in SB I stay at The Agave Inn whose rooms have the same ambiance and attention to artistic detail we enjoyed at The Presidio. On top of the looks, they also have current accoutrements... More

I chose the Agave Inn based on the photos because it did not look like your "average hotel". The room itself had a very used look to it but clean & the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had very limited space to set your toiletries around the sink so I kept my bathroom kit on the floor. Towel racks... More

I stayed at the agave because I was in town for a week visiting my family. It is simple, clean, functional, and comfortable no frills lodging. The free continental breakfast was great, the service and cleanliness are impeccable. It's great for singles or couples travelers. Not a great place to bring kids unless you're passing thru. No pool. A great... More
