Pleasanton, California1 contribution
I was looking forward to staying here, however, the hotel did not live up to the high ratings I read from other guests. The room we stayed in felt more like a bed and breakfast room than a hotel room. I was very disappointed by the size of the room and the bathroom - especially given the expensive nightly rate. The one positive was the dinner we enjoyed in the attached restaurant.

The location can not be beat, there are restaurants, bars and beautiful shops within walking distance, Butterfly beach is a block away. Everything you need is on that block. I loved my room, we upgraded to a double suite and it was spacious and great. The bed was very comfortable and the room had many high end amenities. The Hotel restaurant is very good too although the hostess was a little difficult the two times I ate there. Overall a wonderful stay and I would come back in a heartbeat.

Everything about the Montecito Inn was superb. The location, the staff, the rooms and the overall condition of the property was exemplary. The Inn has brought us back to a time when life was calmer and more peaceful. Built by Charlie Chaplin this propery has maintained the charm of a bygone era.

Excellent location! Easy access to town and highway. Rooms and bathrooms are very small but clean and nice. Some challenges getting housekeeping to bring towels and toiletries- had to ask multiple times. Overall a nice place for a weekend

Very comfortable stay with husband and teen daughter. We stayed in a King Family Suite. Fold out bed for 19 year old was pushing it a bit, but worked out fine. Room was super comfortable, location was right in the middle of all things Montecito - fabulous!
