Absolutely loved staying in the Agave Inn last week. Susan was extremely helpful and lovely! She was very welcoming and gave us loads of tips for things to do and places to eat in Santa Barbara. The location was excellent and the room was clean, spacious and air conditioned with everything you could need. I would definitely stay at the... More

Very cute quirky little throwback of an Inn! Very clean and colorful and Wendy and Suzan were lovely hosts. Will definitely stay here again when passing thru SB! It's a little bit farther than walking distance to the old part of town but then it's quiet too. Good breakfast place across the street diagonally if you want more than the... More

Stayed here with my teenaged children on our trip up the coast. It was comfortable and clean, with all the basics we needed for our stay. The staff were accommodating and friendly. I left my favourite boots behind and they went out of the way to send them to me with no delay. How kind and helpful!!!! The location was... More

Bright clean rooms bit different to other Hotels in the way there is bright colours. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Upon arrival even though we were 2 hours early they checked us in and gave us the key so we could let ourselves straight in. And pulled out a map of the area and explained in detail places we...

I would rate this at 4 stars if the continental breakfast was a little better setup and had croissants from the bakery nearby! It was very clean...the retro feel of the room was fun, the bathroom was modernized & the bed comfy... parking is perfect...close to a great Thai restaurant so another plus. Gal who checked us in was really... More

Used this motel for a couple of nights at Santa Barbara. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. A small breakfast is provided which is a nice touch. The lady that welcomed us was very nice and gave us some tips on where to eat and visit in Santa Barbara. If you need a more substantial breakfast, Renaud's Patisserie... More

A simple cosy and comfortable place where to stay. North of Santa Barbara but within close distance to the city center, with a hostess that will tell you all the best places in town. A nice spot where to stay.

Agave Inn is a lovely little hotel sitting on the upper part of State Street in Santa Barbara. It is far enough from the busyness of Lower State and the Waterfront but close enough for a quick drive of a couple miles to all that action. UCSB was in the other direction from lower State and Waterfront so there is... More

A refurbished classic motor hotel, the Agave Inn is no resort destination by design. But with clean rooms, upgraded bathrooms, comfortable beds, and colorful decor, it is an inviting option overnight. Set in a quiet neighborhood, breakfast options are within walking distance. Staff are pleasant and responsive, and appreciative when we called ahead to let them know we'd arrive late.... More

The hotel was clean and the staff was nice, but this is not a good place to stay. I asked for the ice machine she handed me a cup. It was overpriced, the air conditioner kicked on and off sounded like a truck next to you. There was so much street noise!
