Love the location and charm of the Montecito Inn. Wife and I had a great trip. Thank you to all the great staff for helping make a perfect weekend. Walked to breakfast and dinner each night. Couldn't ask for more. Absolutely will be staying there again.

Very charming boutique hotel. Very clean, rooms a little small. Location in downtown Menticito. Many restaurants and shops within walking distance. The hiway is close by, but it wasn't noisy in our room. Pool is great and we enjoyed our stay.

It was a great stay, and the staff was easy to talk to and helpful. Our room was nice and cozy and the bed was amazingly comfortable. The hotel staff was attentive to our request and provided us what we asked right away.

Great location and adorable hotel. We stayed in montecito and took a $10 uber downtown Santa Barbara. The hotel is in a great location and we walked to breakfast. Room was small but clean and did the job! Would stay again!

This property is historic.... yet updated to feel nice, and it does. Located in a GREAT spot in Montecito with fast freeway access and in the middle of all the shops and restaurants. I enjoyed my escape from life, the staff was all friendly and helpful.

While it is a historic hotel in a great location, the drawbacks are the noisy rooms and dated fixtures/plumbing. It does have charm though with the old elevator and history. It's about a half mile walk to the ocean.

I suppose I was a bit tricked into staying here via price. To be transparent, they have a great location, and I enjoyed the surrounding area tremendously. Now, all that being said, I was placed in a room that might of been the noisiest hotel room I've ever slept in.. I was put on the second floor, and could literally...

We had a nice two night stay at the Montecito Inn which is well located a few miles away from downtown Santa Barbara. The hotel must be old, and still has many attractive features that make it seem like a classic place, such as an old fashioned elevator. Our room was lovely and comfortable. There is a free grab n...

Great place, terrific location. Be warned if you are staying in a standard room, it is very noisy. Hotel is located on a busy street and next to a major highway. Lots of noise in many rooms. However, location is great, and staff is terrific. Historic hotel has charm.
