                                  Nice hotel, friendly staff!Friendly and attentive staff during my stay. Room and bed were comfortable. I was on the first floor and I could hear people using the stairs outside my door, but that was quite minor. The keurig coffee machine water reservoir was quite dirty, so I didn’t use it.

                                          Guide to Santa Barbara Historic Hotels

                                          When you take a Santa Barbara trip out of town, it's easy to choose a chain you are familiar with, or a modern hotel. You may be used to your hotel having all the familiar amenities. But sometimes opting to stay in a more unique hotel can enrich your getaway. A stay in a Santa Barbara historic hotel still gives you a well-appointed room and one with lots of character. Furthermore, it provides you the chance to immerse yourself in Santa Barbara's past.

                                          Old-World Charm, New World Amenities

                                          When you walk through the lobby of your Santa Barbara hotel, you'll be whisked back in time. With their unique architectures and addresses in the center of Santa Barbara, you'll love how these historic hotels stand apart from their modern counterparts. Although these lodgings are vintage, they have many of the modern comforts that allow you to relax during your stay. You'll notice rooms outfitted with a comfy bed, and about anything else you might want for a wonderful getaway.

                                          After you've explored the hotel property, you can check out the prominent landmarks and art galleries to take in more of the region's culture. With several historically key landmarks in Santa Barbara, you can take a long walk through this area's past on your visit. Start the week by checking out Rafael Gonzalez House or Santa Barbara Mission.
