Medical treatments brought my parents and I back to Santa Barbara for 3 weeks in April 2013. Having health issues, we were very happy to stay at Agave Inn again as the rooms are very clean and comfortable. My parents had the room with 2 queen beds, sofa and kitchenette. I had a room with a queen bed, right close...

Spent one night at Agave Inn. Best decision. It was inexpensive and comfortable. The place is small, but the rooms are really nicely decorated and the bathrooms are clean. The lady at reception was exceptionally nice. She let us use her phone for free to call Los Angeles. The room was downstairs, we parked right outside the door. Surprisingly, no...

The Agave Inn is a decent option in Santa Barbara. There is nothing very special about the hotel, but it's a well done up Motel with good decor and is comfortable enough. It's a no-frills option, with a poor breakfast option (avoid the coffee), but there's stuff in the area to go to instead. The supermarket across the road is...

This was a cute little hotel that had everything we needed, actually more. It was clean, comfy, and well kept. Nothing extravagant, but you can't beat the price for the quality. Free wi-fi, fridge and microwave, great location. I didn't see a coffee maker, but I don't drink coffee, so perhaps I missed it. That might matter to some people,...

We loved our stay at this small Inn. Very friendly reception by Susan. Room was clean and modern. We stayed in the large unit with kitchen and sitting area. A good place to spend some time when visiting Santa Barbara. Very good location close to everything. This place is colorful, modern and with many clever touches that please the eye!

We stayed for one night.The staff was very friendly and helpful. This motel is a great place to stay while visiting Santa Barbara. The rooms are clean and lovingly decorated. We had two rooms on the 2nd floor (no elevator) which provided us with enough space for 2 respective 3 people. WiFi Internet was fast. We also enjoyed the little...

We stayed at the Agave Inn for one night on our way up the coast to San Francisco. The positive elements; super clean and bright linens. Nice color accents in bed scarf and shower curtain. Nice renovation in the bathrooms. In our room (and perhaps in all) the bath tub had been removed to make a walk in shower which...

A great little place. Nothing particularly scenic to look at - essentially a small motel wedged into an average-looking block - but tastefully and cleanly set up. The real surprise came upon opening the room door - a riot of cheerful colour in an expansive and well-appointed room. Incredibly comfortable bed, equally restful lounge, big bathroom, table & chairs -...

Agave Inn is not your average Best Western type hotel and thank goodness! It is a refreshing little Inn with Spanish style decor throughout and more character then most hotels in Santa Barbara. We stayed in a 2nd floor room with a little balcony that was great. The room had modern amenities like IPhone docs, modern bathroom fixtures and modern...

This is a super cute spot! The ladies who helped us upon arrival and check out were so sweet and their customer service skills were awesome.
