“our little secret”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

A perfect blend of historic charm and modern convenience. From wireless access in my room, the flat screen tucked in the armoire, a comfortable breakfast room and an affable hostess (Christine)! Pssst, don’t tell anyone, it’s just between us.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

We stayed at the inn this past weekend and enjoyed it immensely! We had originally planned on staying one night and a second somewhere else but loved it so much we stayed there for the second. The innkeeper was so sweet and helpful!! She had a great sense of pride for the inn and a great disposition. While we didn't get to spend much time with her I witnessed her interacting with other couples at the inn.

The rooms were beautiful with great A/C! The beds were so comfortable I never wanted to leave. The grounds and rooms were very clean!!!

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place in area.

My fiance and I stayed here a little over a month and a half ago and words couldn't express how relaxing it was to stay here. We stayed in room number 7 and it had a super comfortable king size bed, working fridge, microwave and toilet :) The breakfast served was light and simple, nothing fancy but it was nice. Very clean, very friendly staff. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing and quiet getaway.

I would recommand Santa Paula Inn to everyone who like peaceful environment. It is a such lovely place and the managers and the owner are really dedicated and helpful.
It was the best place to stay near from hiking and the beach.

The Inn is located off Main St. which made walking around the historic down town easy. A step back in time with everything new and up to date, (wifi, flat-screen TV, refrigerator, microwave). Very quite, clean and comfortable rooms. Being able to enjoy special treats on the terrace for breakfast was most enjoyable. We thank everyone and hope to return some time.

This is a very clean and quiet inn. The staff was very kind to my little dog and myself during our week long stay. In fact, she became quite attached to them. The room was a good size with a very comfortable king, air conditioner, large flat screen, lots of storage and a frig. The historic inn is right in the heart of downtown Santa Paula across from the library and just a quick 15 minute drive to the beach in Ventura. After a day out at the beach, it was wonderful to come home to the quiet Santa Paula Inn for a restful night. The offering of a small continental breakfast in the beautiful sun-lit breakfast room was a nice touch. I really appreciated Christine and Donna's always kind attentiveness. Definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: Not all rooms are the same size, so ask for a larger room on the library side.

I really appreciate the fact that the folks who rehabbed this place a few years ago retained and even enhanced the historic features of the place (crown moldings, big baseboards, etc) while adding all the modern amenities (flat-screen tv, refrigerator, microwave, wifi). A real cut above the cheap-looking construction of the modern places, and quite homey (for this owner of a 100-year-old home). Our room was a little small, but that's probably because they squeezed in that kitchenette. The cold continental breakfast offered lots of options. There's a comfortable patio out back that invites one to relax and read a while. The onsite staff was friendly and responsive. The location is half a block from an active main street with several restaurants.

Room Tip: There's one room with a neat-looking balcony to relax on.
