A gem of a hotel located off the noisy beach and main streets of town. Our room was bigger than most apartments I've lived in. The bathroom was the size of most hotels you would rent. The staff here was the best I have come across. A very good meal in the morning. With good coffee. Parking included. No extra... More

Our stay at the Spanish Garden Inn was absolutely wonderful. From the moment we walked in the door we received excellent service. We were early so our room was not ready yet so we planned to venture out for lunch on foot. The staff offered us some maps of the area, made recommendations for restaurants and offered us water bottles... More

We found the Spanish Garden Inn on line, and made a reservation as we were driving between San Francisco and Los Angeles and wanted to spend some time along the route. The Inn is a little way away from the beach and the main strip, so if you need to be in the middle of the action, then this is... More

Absolutely superb and friendly staff from the front desk to the housecleaning to the breakfast staff. Fantastic location with free parking and the ability to walk easily to downtown, restaurants and shopping. Loved the small boutique feel to this hotel, which is what I look for. We had a deluxe double room with a small sitting area and deck.

Superb location 3 short blocks off State St. - you can walk to most anywhere. Even the Santa Barbara Bowl is only a mile away. The staff at the Inn are probably the most friendly I've encountered, and perhaps it's because it's a small property & not crowded with several hundred guests, but all were very cheerful & always offering...

What a wonderful hotel! The phrase “tranquil retreat” might have been invented to describe this place. The Twitchy family stayed at the Spanish Garden Inn for two nights and we loved it. We had a Deluxe Double Queen, so it meant being closer to our two lumbering sons than we would normally care to be. However, it was perfectly spacious... More
