The Montecito Inn is perhaps in one of the world's greatest locations, and the hotel is has elegant, yet relaxed feel. We had a great suite with a fireplace, but it seemed like the details (curtains, linens, carpets, etc.) hadn't been upgraded since the 1990s or so. Also, the breakfast was nothing to write home about - cold cereals, baked goods wrapped in saran wrap, and yogurt straight out of the carton. I've had more interesting breakfasts at Quality Inn, and with more helpful breakfast staff. For the price and the reputation, one would expect something much more - it kind of diminishes the experience. But a walk along the beach right around the corner, will make you forget!
