My husband and I took a short trip to Santa Barbara in January and wanted a comfortable spot to stay that wasn't too expensive. The Spanish Garden Inn exceeded our expectations! From the friendly staff to the little touches that made us feel pampered, we really enjoyed our stay. I didn't want to leave! Highlights: wine bar, breakfast quiche with fresh-squeezed juice, super-comfy bed, wonderful bath, and quiet atmosphere. The location was ideal for walkers like us, too. We could leave our car and walk to the mission, downtown or the waterfront. We highly recommend this hotel!
