However , once we went inside , my fears went away and u was very pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly and we were upgraded to the Barcelona suite! What a wonderful room... More

The location is great just a little walk to the pier. The original hotel is a little worn, and you have to really search for the ocean view in the "partial ocean view" room. We were disappointed when we checked in, however the manager was exceptionally accommodating and moved us to a large suite in another new building. The room... More

We LOVED this quaint inn and all of it's amenities! Very peaceful and pretty, relaxed but attentive service. Close enough to everything in Santa Barbara without being in the melee. The complimentary guest parking, lovely continental breakfast and free wifi makes this a good value overall.

This hotel is absolutely stunning. It reminds me a lot of a smaller version of the Four Seasons Biltmore. The rooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. The bathroom are large and ours had a deep soaking tub, along with a separate shower. The grounds are nice and quaint.

This was our 2nd stay at Spanish Garden and another memorable and comfortable experience. Very friendly and professional staff, from the front desk to house keeping. The breakfasts are excellent- not a huge variety, but the pastries are excellent as well as the coffees.
