We enjoyed our stay in Santa Barbara, especially at Agave. Clean rooms, awesome service, great location. We will definitely stay there again. When in Santa Barbara, look up agave inn and you won't be disappointed.

Stayed here one night on a last minute booking when many hotels where already full. Room was clean but looked like something from the 70's. Air conditioner was so noisy I couldn't leave it on at night. At least it was easy to take an Uber to a restaurant on State street. Staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was... More

This small motel is located right on State St. across for Gelsons Market, with lots of restaurants within walking distance. There are only a few rooms at this motel, but each room has a South Western blanket on the bed. My room had a microwave, fridge, tv (no HBO). It was clean and quiet. It was relatively inexpensive for Santa... More

Very cute, updated place to stay. Our room was very clean with very comfortable bedding. Opened the windows for nice, cool sleeping. Easy to get to the places we wanted to go. We would definitely stay again!

This is a small motor inn that is reminiscent of the 1960's. Our room was clean, and the bedding was superior. The bath was completely modernized with new fixtures and shower only. The decor of the room has charm with a bit of kitch.

Very cute quirky little throwback of an Inn! Very clean and colorful and Wendy and Suzan were lovely hosts. Will definitely stay here again when passing thru SB! It's a little bit farther than walking distance to the old part of town but then it's quiet too. Good breakfast place across the street diagonally if you want more than the... More

Stayed here with my teenaged children on our trip up the coast. It was comfortable and clean, with all the basics we needed for our stay. The staff were accommodating and friendly. I left my favourite boots behind and they went out of the way to send them to me with no delay. How kind and helpful!!!! The location was... More

Bright clean rooms bit different to other Hotels in the way there is bright colours. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Upon arrival even though we were 2 hours early they checked us in and gave us the key so we could let ourselves straight in. And pulled out a map of the area and explained in detail places we...
