Classy hotel in a classy town near the beach

Posted Jan 27, 2015
The hotel staff was terrific, the rooms though a bit small were very well appointed. the adjacent restaurant offered great food at a reasonable price considering the area. We stayed Fri and Sat night. Friday we got turn down service and Sat. there was no turn down service and the room was not 100% clean. that was the only downside. and yes we'd go back

Really well kept antique hotel

Posted Jan 24, 2015
I didn't know exactly what to expect but we wanted a hotel away from the tweakers and drunks in downtown Santa Barbara. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. The decoration is awesome and the overall feeling a great one. The hotel staff were super nice and the continental breakfast was good. The room was impeccable and the bed super comfy. I would easily recommend this hotel to a friend.

Great Location - Great Hotel - Great Stay

Posted Jan 13, 2015
My only disappointment was that I was really hoping for the deep soaking tub that I saw in the pictures. Otherwise, everything was just great. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was quite nice. We took advantage of the bikes they offer and had a fantastic ride down to the beach and back. I would definitely go again!

NICE Hotel. I would stay there again.

Posted Jan 3, 2015
Pros: I was there over the holiday. The Christmas decorations were just gorgeous and worth taking photo's of.
Cons: I was a bit surprised that I could hear my neighbors next door - mainly the bathroom. But it being such an old hotel, I let it go.
Location: The location is fantastic. IT IS CLOSE TO VERY GOOD RESTAURANTS and not far from the beach at all.
I really enjoyed the beautiful classic decor in the entire hotel. The room was clean and also very nice in decor. The bed was very comfortable which is important to me. I have a bad back.

Nice hotel, but a little drive to downtown SB

Posted Dec 31, 2014
Great little hotel. Very nice and clean. Th staff was very helpful and polite. The hotel is a short drive to Downtown SB. We did not have a view of the ocean and would most likely stay downtown next time. This hotel was great for the price.

Wonderful historic hotel

Posted Dec 31, 2014
Pros: The hotel is very well kept and so clean. I liked the location. Our room backed to the freeway but the windows are doubled paned, so no bother.
Cons: none
Location: Loved the shopping area, many restaurants and boutiques. Wanted Italian food, choose Tre Lune. Its a local favorite. CVS is across from hotel.
Hotel is right in the small shopping area of Montecito. Beautiful older historic hotel with connections to Charlie Chaplin. Parking is valet but free. The breakfast is included but room to eat is very small. Very, very clean with comfy beds. The small lobby is very cute with a fireplace and few seats.

nice location, but average - small rooms.

Posted Dec 29, 2014
Pros: location - main street of Montecito.
Cons: cleanliness
Location: walking distance to Butterfly Beach - beautiful sunsets.
bathroom floor was dirty - window was broken and did not allow to keep open. elevator was old and slow. area for breakfast was cramped. good location - but would not stay there again - noisy because it backs to the freeway.
