I booked the Agave Inn all the way back in July 2016 for a bachelorette party to be held the first weekend of February. There were 10 ladies in our party and the price of the Agave Inn was the best option for our needs. We were able to book 2 double rooms with kitchenettes and one king room for...

I needed a reasonable place to stay going to the doctor for an appointment. It was an adorable decorated place with everything you might need for a nice visit. Nice bathroom, fridge and microwave, located near all kinds of restaurants in walking distance. Muffins and fruit and coffee served in a nook outside so just get your stuff and eat...

What an adorable motel! Real cozy and comfortable place to stay. I will definitely stay at this motel again. Great location. I was upgraded at no extra charge. The ladies that run this quaint motel are the best and very accommodating. Tastefully decorated with bright colors. A very welcoming atmosphere.

Agave Inn is great for a stopover. Our room on the outside building was spotless and brightly decorated. It was a little noisy during the day from street traffic but that wasn't an issue at night. The lighting was kind of odd, with dim lights by the bed and too-bright lights in the ceiling - again, not a huge problem....

If all the motels in USA would be like this one, there wouldn't be so many disappointments. It's a small unit, from outside it doesn't look much better than any other small motel however once you enter in one of the rooms, there's a huge difference: bright colours, nice and modern decoration, very clean, cosy, very good bathroom. You know...

Agave Inn is a small boutique inn, with approximately 25 spacious rooms that are simply yet colorfully decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable, and the hotel provided a small continental breakfast of muffins, fruit, and coffee each morning. My only complaint is that, although the hotel is located on "State Street", it is a good 2+ miles from the part...

I have been here many times before and have always been happy for choosing this place. Each stay was wonderful and super comfortable. I have a lot of health issues pertaining to allergies, thus cleanliness and the comfort of beds and beddings are imperative for me. Agave Inn is always the best in providing these for me.

This is one of the best deals you can get in Santa Barbara for a clean, tidy, colorful place. It's not fancy, but attention was paid to making it feel happy. The owner and staff care about the property, and even though it's an older building, it's been recently decorated in a simple and modern way that makes it inviting...
