Booked a night here for my in-laws 45th anniversary so they could be alone and I was very impressed with their experience!!! The staff went out of their way to make them feel special, upgraded their room for the occasion, had champagne on ice, they were greeted with a "happy anniversary" from the front desk the waiters and even the bartender . They came home raving about their experience and the beautiful grounds. I'm so thankful to the Upham for making sure the experience was memorable! I highly recommend this historic hotel.

My husband and I spent one night at the Upham during the SB film festival weekend. I was very pleased with the grounds and clean/quiet room. We enjoyed some wine out on the nice patio and lawn. It was also the perfect location to walk to the downtown area for a very nice dinner. The breakfast was just OK because they did not offer any cooked options just more of a continental with cereal, oatmeal and fruit. But I would definitley come back.

Room Tip: Next time I would request a room in one of the separate buildings and not off the main house.

The Inn was lovely overall as was the hospitality, offering a free light breakfast, wine and cheese from 4:30-7 and cookies and milk after that. My only complaint would be that the size and beauty of the room- at least our room, was a bit less than expected. Very clean yet slightly musty on our arrival - a little AC/heat helped overcome that problem. Still it was small room was small,rather dark and situated in a way that made it uncomfortable and difficult to watch tv from the bed. That may not be important to some but unfortunately it was kind of annoying for us. I would stay there again but I recommend getting more information about the room options rather than go with what you see on your computer screen.

Room Tip: Wish I could tell you!

Came to the upham for my 31st birthday with my best friend and had a wonderful stay. Conveniently located and perfect B&B feel. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Santa Barbara either for work or pleasure.

We booked this little hotel on advice from friends and what a great surprise. It wasn't nearly as expensive as comparable chains in the area but it was much warmer and comfortable. We highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Choose one of the cottages.
