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!

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night. What a find. Great hotel, Clean, modern room with light airy feel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. To the centre of santa Barbara is around a 30 minute walk so some sort of transportation would be good. Its also an extra 10 minutes to get to the beach. But saying... More

I was driving several hours and needed a place to stay pretty late into the evening. I came across this inn and was pleasantly surprised. It's a quaint Inn. Very friendly staff. Clean room. Free parking and WiFi. And a nice continental breakfast in the morning to get you on your way. I would definitely recommend and would stay again.... More

Stayed 4 nights. Staff very helpful, continental breakfast was excellent, rooms were very clean, and it was great value. Breakfast started at 8am. Since there was no coffee maker in the room, you will need to wait till then to get coffee. However, Renaud's Patisserie (great looking croissants and pastries) is in the shopping center diagonally across from the Agave... More

Although we arrived later than the final checkin time which is 10 pm, the lady at the front desk was really kind and helpful. She told us about the things to do and some parking tips in Santa Barbara. The room is not very spacious but beautifully decorated. Definitively a good choice for budget travelers!

A little motel with very nice decorated and clean rooms. The bathroom was new renovated and very nice. You can park directly in front of your room and it takes only 5 minutes by car to town. Breakfast was just a take-away outside with coffee, muffins, bananas and apples.
