My husband and I wanted to get away to celebrate our anniversary. We could not have chosen a better place! They are so nice and attentive at the Spanish Garden Inn. The room was beautiful and the service was 5 Star! They booked our couples massage for us and left us a Happy Anniversary card on the bed! We had all the amenities you could ever hope for! I highly recommend staying here! You wont be disappointed!

Stayed for two nights. Smaller, unique property. We enjoyed all of the staff interactions. they were very attentive to any request. The morning breakfast is now delivered to your room during "TheCOV". Excellent quality and choices. not to mention convenient. The property is well kept and peaceful. The pool is very small but available. The property has a romantic charm for a quiet getaway. The only problem we had was the multitude of stairs with some current hip problems. They do have other options but lots of uneven paths and stairs if you have concerns. Overall I think it was a very nice property.

Great on site staff. They were very attentive and pleasurable. It was a lovely property in a great location, central to every thing. They provided Bikes to roam around town at no cost, which was fabulous. The breakfast was amazing, sitting outside on our patio with coffee was a great experience!

We needed to getaway to relax and just catch our breath before going back to work. We love Santa Barbara and the Spanish Inn. The service is amazing and we loved the breakfast service. The young man who checked us in went above and beyond to make us welcome. I would recommend if you like being pampered in a great hotel, you need to go the Spanish Inn.
