This was our second visit to The Spanish Garden. It did not disappoint. Check in staff were efficient and helpful. Our room was large with a fireplace and balcony overlooking the courtyard patio. Bathroom had a bath, separate shower and separate toilet area. Breakfast was small buffet style and would have benefitted from a slightly larger choice. A nice small...

Delightful boutique hotel walking distance to historic district of Santa Barbara that offers spacious suites with a fireplace and balcony. Friendly, helpful staff, nice courtyard common area, onsite covered parking. Caveat: the breakfast buffet food is good - but the breakfast dining area is surprisingly basic with no ambience, not as nice as the rest of the hotel. Minor point...

I love this place. It is in the old Santa Barbara school of the arts building. The building is spanish colonial architecture. Rooms are clean and quiet. Breakfast is European-like with on site baked pastries and quiches. Enjoyed being able to park the car in the hotel garage and walking to State St. My wife and I enjoyed sitting by...

The property is exactly as advertised (a smaller, upscale alternative to the typical chain behemoths). The service, however, was BETTER than advertised! The entire staff was kind, attentive, and quick to help. Everyone there clearly believes in customer service... from helping to open a door to making restaurant suggestions. Our room was quiet. The layout was well-planned and the bathroom...

This is a beautiful property located within walking distance of State street and not too far from the Stearns Wharf. The staff goes out of their way to ensure your stay is pleasant, the rooms are clean, nicely decorated and comfortable, and the gardens are well maintained.

From the moment we arrived at the front desk we felt like we had arrived at a friend's home. The greeting was warm and incredibly informative. The wine they poured was welcome after the hours in the road. Their restaurant and things to see recommendations were spot on. The cookies at the desk in the afternoon continued to reinforce that...

This hotel exceeded my expectations. I expect to pay more for hotels in Santa Barbara and am often a little disappointed, but this one was well worth the price. It had parking, superb staff at all levels, easy access, and the room had all the comforts of home.
