I stayed at the Spanish Garden Inn with my 10- and 12-year-old children, never having stayed at a small hotel with children before. I was very pleasantly surprised by how welcoming the staff were and my kids and I loved our stay here. The service was so friendly, helpful, and unpretentious. The room was very spacious, attractive, clean, and well-maintained...

We were really looking forward to our stay at the Spanish Garden inn and did enjoy our stay except for two incidents that will make us never go back again. The hotel is nicely situated and our rooms were very nice. The ambiance is also very nice. The beds were a little uncomfortable, but that is true with many hotels...

Thank you for the review. I am glad that overall you enjoyed your stay. My apologies for the confusion over certain amenities on property. We do have menus on every table as well as on the buffet which outline the additional offerings at our breakfast. 12 years ago, Spanish Garden Inn was a very early adopter of the environmentally responsible...

We stayed for four nights in May and thoroughly enjoyed the inn. The front desk staff was very helpful, and our room overlooking the pool, was lovely and roomy with a nice balcony. We also liked the breakfast and appreciated the in room electric kettle and French press since we like to have coffee as soon as we wake up....

Hello Tinaindenver, WOW..You covered most of the bases here! Happy to hear you enjoyed the beach cruisers- it's a great way to see Santa Barbara. Sounds like you took advantage of the well thought out bike paths we have here. Our hotel features a special local blend of coffee so the French press is a welcome sight for you morning...

This Inn is just about perfect! A few blocks off the main street in Santa Barbara is this wonderful place that will spoil you.

What an amazing place. From the minute we arrived, we felt we were someplace special. The staff is ready to assist with any request that you make. The continental breakfast (more than what you expect) was delicious and having refreshments available day and night (coffee, tea) was an extra nice touch.

Lisa, Thank you for the review and for letting us help you with local suggestions. We love being your concierge and helping to create custom stays tailored to your requests.

As you step into the lobby, you can almost feel yourself calming and relaxing.
