"Great bed and sheets."
The bed was wonderful...very comfortable mattress and great sheets. The staff, from front desk to valet people were very good, friendly and helpful. The downside of our room was that the toilet was so tightly cramped between the wall and the sink that it was difficult to sit comfortably facing forward, and we aren't large people. Other than that, and that situation possibly varies from room to room, the hotel was great.

"Charming hotel in Montecito"
Nice, charming hotel with character. Room is a bit small & noisy from upstairs occupants (could hear voices, footsteps, etc). Good location: near freeway & nice dining options within walking distance.

"Classy hotel in a classy town near the beach"
The hotel staff was terrific, the rooms though a bit small were very well appointed. the adjacent restaurant offered great food at a reasonable price considering the area. We stayed Fri and Sat night. Friday we got turn down service and Sat. there was no turn down service and the room was not 100% clean. that was the only downside. and yes we'd go back

"Really well kept antique hotel"
I didn't know exactly what to expect but we wanted a hotel away from the tweakers and drunks in downtown Santa Barbara. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. The decoration is awesome and the overall feeling a great one. The hotel staff were super nice and the continental breakfast was good. The room was impeccable and the bed super comfy. I would easily recommend this hotel to a friend.

"Great Location - Great Hotel - Great Stay"
My only disappointment was that I was really hoping for the deep soaking tub that I saw in the pictures. Otherwise, everything was just great. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was quite nice. We took advantage of the bikes they offer and had a fantastic ride down to the beach and back. I would definitely go again!

"Nice hotel, but a little drive to downtown SB"
Great little hotel. Very nice and clean. Th staff was very helpful and polite. The hotel is a short drive to Downtown SB. We did not have a view of the ocean and would most likely stay downtown next time. This hotel was great for the price.

"Wonderful historic hotel"
Hotel is right in the small shopping area of Montecito. Beautiful older historic hotel with connections to Charlie Chaplin. Parking is valet but free. The breakfast is included but room to eat is very small. Very, very clean with comfy beds. The small lobby is very cute with a fireplace and few seats.

"Meh"
The hotel is nice, but not anything you would go out of your way for. It is very cramped, from the small rooms, the narrow hallways, the tiny elevator and the small parking area. They do charge for parking, even though you're not in Santa Barbara anymore. Accommodations are adequate, but we ran out of hot water after only one shower. It was surprisingly noisy.

"Ok, not great."
The hotel is quaint and the rooms are ok. The bed was comfortable. Window opened to street view so not very romantic or lovely considering the cost and location. Fireplace did not work, we had to call maintenance. They came right away. Carpets were dirty. The TV was really old and the picture was not very good. Limited cable. Nothing hot with the continental breakfast, except instant oatmeal.

"Great except for water temperature fluctuation"
The hotel is located in a very nice and convenient area of Montecito. The staff was very friendly and helpful; the room was small, but clean and quaint. The only issue we encountered was the fluctuation of water temperature, which was be a challenge when challenging. We did express this to the management and they immediately took responsibility and stepped up to the plate. We would definitely go back to this hotel.

"Convenient and Friendly"
I've stayed at the Montecito Inn before and my room wasn't great. This time I selected "Luxury King Studio" and it was excellent and very reasonably priced. Far more spacious and well appointed than I expected. The lesson is at Montecito Inn choose the specific room; don't take the run of the rack. I'll definitely be back.

We loved staying at this hotel and would again in the future. There is a lot of charm and the rooms are well-appointed. They also provide free bikes to guests which we enjoyed. There is coffee/spa water available all day, and the pool and hot tub area is lovely. Aside from the guy who oversaw the breakfast each day - the staff was most helpful.

"mostly good hotel"
Hotel was clean. Front desk clerks were all very nice. Room was very clean as was yhe bathroom. Free WiFi in the room. all but one staffmember was very nice. The one guy was overseeing the dining area during the complimentary continental breakfast and was rude to my wife when she was asking for utensils. He also didn't bother to restock the pastries from a box he had until we were ready to leave. Why would you not offer them when you see guests opeNing the empty pastry cupboard? Elevator was also broken and we had a third floor room so that was inconvenient, but they did email me ahead to advise me. If it weren't for the broken elevator and the one rude guy, I would rate this place as a 4 overall.

"Nice hotel and great customer service."
We had a great experience the customer service was great but the elevator was not working and I think that's unacceptable especially if it happened during the week. With an inconvenience they should have waived the parking fee or something. The price for the hotel was not worth the room amenities and space. The view from our room was horrible.

"My stay was not nearly long enough!"
I was in town for a conference, rooming with a colleague. We needed a room with two beds and enough space so that we wouldn't stumble over one another. The Montecito Inn was PERFECT for us! Not only was the room large and extremely comfortable, but it was well-appointed with comfortable beds, a great bathroom, high-end toiletries, and sumptuous robes. The property is very well-maintained, and in a great walking area, with restaurants, wine bars, and boutiques. If you wish to venture further, the hotel provides bicycles! The staff was friendly and accommodating. --I can't wait to come back here with my boyfriend for a romantic weekend!

"Charlie Chaplin Inspired"
Lovely hotel, however the elevator was out of service during our anniversary vacation. We had to walk up 3 very steep flight of stairs to our room. Made for a little uncomfortable experience as I was in heels a lot. Otherwise it was fantastic. They sent up a bottle of wine to our room for our anniversary--very nice and classy touch.

The Montecito Inn has the lovely old Santa Barbara charm with modern amenities. Very friendly staff and loved the valet service as we were in and out each day. Quaint downtown and very friendly people even with all the high end shops. A vintage car show was along the main street which made for a great stroll and my husband loved showing our kids our folk's cars and our first car! Would look forward to staying here again.

"This 1920s hotel is a delight!"
This hotel, built by Charlie Chaplin in the 1920s is a pure delight to the senses. As you walk through the hallways you sense the aura of the Golden Age of Hollywood. Even though the rooms are a bit small, the attention to detail in terms of high quality of bedding, furniture and art deco themes were wonderful. There is a full service restaurant whose signature dessert, coconut cake reportedly has visitors returning many times to the Montecito Inn Cafe for it alone. Highly recommended.
