We booked the Palihouse for the weekend of our elopement just blocks away at the Santa Barbara courthouse. We visited once before and it seemed quaint, the staff friendly. We decided what the heck, let's book it and have a nice place close to the venue. Our stay was spectacular. From the moment we arrived to peach brandy, fresh raspberries and complimentary prosecco in the room (maybe just since we were getting married?) to cocktails in the courtyard, it was a lovely lovely place to stay. We couldn't recommend this enough for a romantic getaway.

I just absolutely LOVE this hotel, it’s the second time I’ve stayed there! What I liked about this time was the beautiful in door and outdoor private seating with delicious Nespresso coffee, yummy treats in the fridge/freezer, delicious avocado toast and per usual.... the friendly staff. Thank you for a most excellent stay! Loved how walkable everything is from this location as well! My only feedback would be to try and find a way to ask guests to not block the electric car charging spots with non EV cars and also the pipes were pretty loud for most of the 3 night stay.

Dear Red510, Thank you for your overwhelmingly pleasing review of Palihouse Santa Barbara. I glad to hear you had the opportunity to experience so many of our hotel's unique amenities. I appreciate your feedback on our complimentary parking garage, with regard to EV charging accessibility. I've also taken note to address the issue of you experiencing some periodic sounds of draniage from the HVAC system. Ensuring that our guests have an overall pleasant and memorable experience during every stay is extremely important to us. We're so very pleased to know that we've become your new home away from home. Cheers, Joseph Lewis | House Manager

Great boutique hotel. Rooms are retro chic, bed was very comfortable. We took the bikes around town and to the beach which was very convenient. Staff is friendly and drinks were very good at the bar. Great stay
