We stayed at the Spanish Garden Inn last weekend for a quick girls getaway. The room was awesome- it had a fireplace & very cute courtyard. The service was incredible & the location was great!! They had wine tastings each evening & offered movies & popcorn upon request. We were busy about town & missed these events, but thought it was great that they were offered. A continental breakfast was also available each morning-delish muffins & pastries! Loved our stay-very comfortable!

Comfortable, convenient, and clean. Very relaxing. Love the wine available by the glass in the lobby. Underground parking. Close to everything. Bike rentals available. Rooms are spacious and have a traditional touch. Grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Great spot to relax and unwind. Good location for wine tasting and tours or to catch a music event at the bowl.

A beautiful place, in a beautiful setting. Room was large, beds were so big and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and just right. Location perfect for walking out to State St. Plus parking was free! It was my son's birthday whilst there, and staff had left him a card and treats in the room! Nothing was too much bother. Highly recommended, only stayed 3 nights, wish we'd stayed longer!

My wife and myself stayed here for 2 nights before travelling on to LA.
This was the most expensive hotel that we stayed at on our trip down form San Fran but boy you get what you pay for.
We arrived to a wonderful smiling lady who asked us to give her an hour as we were early for check in (12.00). when we returned she had manged to upgrade us to a Junior suite as it was our 25th wedding Anniversary which was a lovely surprise , there was also an offer of a lovely glass of wine each in the courtyard before we went out for a meal that evening.
The room was on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the pool. A stunning room with a superb sizable bathroom, Molton Brown products and big fluffy towels and robes.
Tiny touches like a corner bedding turn down and Chocolate that lots of Hotels just don't get made this 2 night stay so enjoyable. Would go back in a heartbeat.

We needed to get away from the Bay Area and went to Santa Barbara for a few days. Located 2 streets off of lively State Street and 4 blocks from the ocean was this fantastic small 18 to 22 room hotel. Secure underground parking was included in this not car friendly downtown area. The atmosphere was quiet, upscale and very much attention was paid to its guests by staff. We stayed in room 22 above the pool and had a great private balcony that made us feel like we were in a private home. The rooms are spread in several building clusters and all in the Spanish style with lush gardens. Included breakfast started and end with wine tasting in the early evenings. In the day there are significant places to see and numerous great restaurants are just around the corner.The experience was that we extended our stay and now plan to return again soon. Forget Carmel and go to Santa Barbara, the weather is better and this is a great walking, boating and biking town. Expensive yes but, for the rates that you will see in Santa Barbara, its very fair pricing and we never felt like we did not get our monies worth. We left totally relaxed and wanting more...
