Overall the property is nice. Basic amenities with a great location and free parking. Staff are helpful and friendly. Bed was very comfortable and updated shower was nice. Not a lot of counter space to spread out toiletries but not a big deal. Breakfast not worth it, especially if you are gluten free. Plan on eating out if you want a real meal (or at least more than just toast).

I'm thrilled to have stayed at the Franciscan Inn! My wife and I stayed there on our way up Highway 1/ the coast and I can't recommend this wonderful place highly enough! The staff was hospitable, personable, and very helpful. It's a truly charming inn!

Room Tip: Every room is excellent, I think. We were in 104.

Our room was in excellent condition and the location was prime. The staff was extremely helpful and went out of their way to accommodate us. Would definitely stay at the Franciscan Inn on a return trip to Santa Barbara.
