      Historical Traveler Reviews Spanish Garden Inn Santa Barbara

      Amazing place!

      from

      What an amazing place to say. The location made it very easy to walk to State Street shops and visit great restaurants. The staff is very well knowledgeable for those who never been there and those who wish to experience more of what Santa Barbara is all about. The rooms were very nice all around. The one minor thing is their pool is small and only 3 ft. deep. All in all it's high class all the way and highly recommend it.

      Santa Barbara Pace...

      from

      From the ease of checking in, borrowing the inn's laptop computer to tie into their high speed internet connection in the room you felt like being at a very good and organized friend's home. Love the natural light, maintained gardens and everything about the king deluxe room. We spent five days there and enjoyed every minute. We have a great bed at home that was matched with the inn's bed. We drink tea and the tea kettle and Tzao teas were perfect to unwind with. The made to order coffee drinks and continetal breakfast were great on the sun drenched patio. We will recommend it to our friends!

      Great Attention to Detail

      from

      These folks know how to run a great hotel. The service was amazing. Tim was kind of hip, Shanda was charming and Josefine was sweet and accomodating. I can't remember the last time I knew the names of hotel workers. This was realy memorable. Nice soaps and shampoos--none of the tiny cheap stuff--realy high quality here. Cookies in the afternoon were welcomed.

      Exquisite!

      from

      Charming and the essence of Santa Barbara. Quiet, intimate, romantic. Staff is superb! I wanted a few days of R&R and to get away from a rainy Portland winter. I couldn't have found a more satisfying slice of heaven here at the Inn of the Spanish Garden. Close to the SB Mission, Botanic Gardens, Ensemble Theater, the SM Museum of Art, and the Soujourner and the Palace, two of SB's best restaurants. I prefer small exquisite hotels instead of impersonal large places (i.e., the SB Biltmore). It you want a true "SB experience" stay here and walk everywhere via State Street. I had a lovely room with a four-poster bed, fireplace, jacuzzi tub, lovely balcony overlooking the lushly landscaped grounds and pool. Terrific continental breakfast featuring frittatas, granola, and yummy blueberry coffeecake. This is what a vacation is all about!

      Wonderful Stay

      from

      My partner and I stayed at the Inn of the Spanish Garden over Valentine's weekend. We were treated wonderfully, from the moment we first arrived to the moment we left. The Inn itself is beautiful, especially for those who enjoy Spanish architecture and simplicity. You won't find any needless clutter here, thank goodness, and the linens, bath products, etc. are all luxurious. The staff was attentive, but respectful of our privacy. We will definitely return.

      Almost perfect!

      from

      We've stayed at the top hotels in Santa Barbara, but this Inn comes close to being perfect. Frette linens, huge towels, beautiful warm colors in the room, excellent wine tastings in the evenings (not the cheap wine most inns put out at 5 pm) and a sumptuous breakfast made this inn a great deal. The fact that it is in walking distance of town (unlike the Biltmore or El Encanto) is a real plus. One slight flaw: there is not enough privacy between the huge sunken tub and the rest of the suite, which was a shame. Even married couples sometimes want privacy from each other taking a bath!

      Perfect Place

      from

      We are blessed to be able to travel and stay at some of the country's best hotels. This place is splendid and is right near the top of the list. The service is wonderful (not too familiar), and the location is great. The hotel's architecture feels like it is 150 years old--with 21st century upgrades.

      Santa Barbara is one of our favorite places...you should try the new restaurant Epiphany, or Brigetta's. There is a cool coffee shop downtown (sorry, I don't remeber the street) called Santa Barbara Roasting Company.

      have fun,

      Wonderful!

      from

      A very nice, intimate inn with a high level of attention to detail We had a beautiful room with a really luxurious bed and fireplace. The bathroom was very nice, too -- big tub, great amenities. The staff was friendly yet professional, the location is perfect -- in a quiet neighborhood but close enough to walk to State Street for dinner or shopping. A great place for a relaxing weekend.

      Experience of a lifetime

      from

      My husband and I went to the Inn of the Spanish Garden for our anniversary. Not knowing much about it just taking a chance. We absolutely loved it. They went to the extreme to provide excellent service. The massages and breakfast in bed were also great. My favorite part aside from it just being well designed and plush was the bathroom with the sunken tub (excellent). I recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable yet luxurious get a way.

      WOW! What a place!

      from

      What an amazing hotel. This place has it all: luxury, romance, great service the most compfortable bed I've ever slept on--in fact, the hotel staff ordered a bed for us to have in our home. We can't wait for it to arrive. The linens we so soft and the towels were plump...these guys covered all the bases and paid attention to the details. They even have some meeting space for corporate people. We arrived on a Friday evening and was impressed with the nicely appointed lobby and wine offering upon arrival. The breakfast was more that adequate for us as we began our day be stolling old town Santa Barbara. This place is a gem.

This is where you will find all the designer shops and upscale eateries as well as local bars etc. The street looks amazing with Palm trees down both sides. It has a great relaxed atmosphere, probably because it is narrow, which gives it a real homely feel. We looked in several shops had a drink in the The Old Kings Road ...

      ... everyone told me to do so. It is a old courthouse that was built in 1850. It is also an amazing tourist attraction. Many people get married (and/or divorced) in this building and while I was visiting, a wedding was ongoing. What is interesting about that courthouse is that there is an observation tower where you can have an overall view of Santa Barbara. When I got up there, I was amazed by what I was seeing: the roofs ...
