This was a great hotel, especially for the price. The location is right in the heart of several businesses and right off of the 101. The rooms are clean and the service is terrific. I highly recommend this hotel.

Can't beat the price of the Montecito Inn relative to the Biltmore (closed), Miramar ($3k+) and SYR ($3k+)... but you can beat the rooms / quality of the facilities and, in particular, the bathrooms. I stayed in a room with 2 bathrooms (only needed one) but both were basically on the main second floor hallway and only separated by single pane of frosted glass. Everything, and I mean everything, in my bathroom was basically visible to other guests as they walked by my room. The volatility in water pressure and temp in the shower was also a big issue. Management was not interested in engaging or acknowledging the issue. Bummer - I would have gone back a lot had it worked out.

This hotel was just what I expected. Beautiful architecture in a beautiful, relaxing town. Short walk to the beach as well as restaurants. The hotel is very close to the 101 so you can hear the cars from the back patio.

Small room but excellent location and staff. Enjoyed the onsite restaurant, and Jeannine's bakery on Coast Village Road. Valet team was excellent with timely response and reasonable at $15/day. Nice way to spend our Christmas/New Year's holiday

Rooms in the original hotel are very small with tiny bathrooms. We were in a corner room that had a wonderful view. We moved to a junior suite in the newer wing which was excellent in every respect. It was spacious and well appointed.
