We have been staying in the Santa Barbara area in one of the large hotels along the water. This year they have increased their rates by 25% so we decided to try a new spot and we are so glad we did. The Castillo Inn is a small motel style location where you never have to hear a guest above you and the parking allows you easy access to your car with no parking costs. The rate was half of what we have been paying with a much larger and updated bathroom. There is no pool or hot tub but in Jan./Feb. these are not amenities most of us are going to want to use. The train that runs along the waterfront turns inland before getting to this location--- so no noise issues there. The place is very clean and the small garden areas well cared for around the inn. Breakfast is simple and must be taken to your room but the fruit was fresh and tasty.
Dan the manager was quite helpful throughout our stay and performed many tasks after we left with a most pleasant demeanor. We had forgotten a large suit bag of clothing in the wardrobe and didn't realize it until we were over two hours from Santa Barbara. The honest maids had already brought it to him. Many of the items in the bag had just been purchased so we were so pleased when Dan took control of the situation --- boxed them up, measured and weighed them, and explained how to proceed for the UPS pick-up. Within two days the clothing arrived in perfect condition. Lucky us to have chosen this perfect little inn.
