We stayed here based on other tripadvisor reviews and they were so right! The location is great and the hotel was charming. Our suite had doors that opened onto the private patio. The breakfast is fantastic and all of the personnel aim to please. I can't wait to go back and stay at the inn again.

Thank you for writing a review of your experience at our hotel. You are correct, we are the only hotel in town where you can conveniently and safely walk to the County Bowl for a concert, which is so much better than trying to find parking etc...

Can't wait to welcome you back!

My wife and I were looking for somewhere special to stay for 5 nights R&R during our California holiday (San Francisco, Pacific Coast Highway, Santa Barbara, LA)......and boy did we hit the jackpot! The Spanish Garden Inn was everything we hoped it would be. Quiet, personal, beautiful rooms with lovely balcony, helpful friendly staff, great location. The courtyard was a joy. Al fresco breakfast in the morning and sitting round the raised flame furnace in the evening with a glass (or 3) of wine. If you want somewhere really special to stay....treat yourself and look no further.

We stayed two nights in order to attend a concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl. We were close enough to walk to the venue which was a nice bonus. It is also very convenient to all of the shops and restaurants on State Street. The staff was incredible friendly and helpful and the rooms were large and clean. This is my new hotel of choice in Santa Barbara, I can't wait to return.

Spacious room with private patio. We were upgraded to a suite with a large shower, soaking tub and 2 comfortable chairs in front of the fireplace. Friendly, accommodating staff (thanks, Jordan!) and a terrific location in Santa Barbara. Coffee available 24/7. Great for us early risers. Nice pool, too.

An amazing beautiful small cozy hotel in amazing Santa Barbara. The service is exceptional, the staff are very helpful and provide excellent help and assistance in anything you ask them.

The grounds are beautiful with the central court water fountain and swimming pool, very picturesque! The quality of the rooms, comfort of beds, and cleanliness is top level (5 Star). Toiletries, Towels, and everything in the room was top class.

Location is within a few blocks from main State Street where all the action is and close to top restaurants.

To me this is a top hotel and I would use again and again.

Room Tip: Each room has a special character, the ones by the pool are nice.
