"The Perfect B&B"
This Inn has it all! The Inn itself is beautiful and meticulously maintained, with cozy rooms, a quaint courtyard and blossoming garden. The daily breakfast has ham, cheese, boiled eggs, fruit cups, yogurt, cereal, homemade banana bread or scones and something hot from the kitchen. At 5:00, after a day of biking, whale watching, beaching or shopping […] (all excellent), be sure to have the complimentary wine and snacks, such as cheese, deviled eggs, crudités, and bruschetta (among other tasty offerings). A dip on the hot tub before or after dinner is delightful...and before bed they offer freshly baked cookies and brownies! All the extras, and the loving attention to detail, make this a real value as well. And the icing on the cake is the friendly and helpful staff, the free parking and free WiFi. Perfect!

We stayed at Mock Turtle. Even though it's a smaller room than most, it still has room for a small round table and two chairs. Very cozy and intimate. Bed is very comfortable and better than most hotel beds. Love the small blue flowers wall paper and the periwinkle bathroom walls. Didn't notice traffic noise as the windows face the quieter street. Hotel […] provides wonderful hors-d'œuvre including wine and cheese during happy hour. Coming back in the evening, we were pleasantly surprised to see some brownies treats by the front door as late night snack. The next morning, we were offered a very good continental breakfast in bed. Overall a most wonderful experience. The romantic hotel grounds will certainly tempt us to come back again in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great little B&B"
I've never stayed in a B&B before because I heard creepy things. This place set the bar high for my first B&B experience. Pleasant atmosphere, great restored building, nice garden... this place has it all. The food was awesome, and they even through a little garden happy hour daily which was unexpected and nice. Awesome parking lot on site. Wifi was […] free and worked well. I felt like I came home when I got here as was welcomed with open arms. Mad Hatter room was quite nice, good size, and nice view to the neighborhood. A+ all around! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Charming place; very nice staff. Pretty outdoor garden with chairs and chaise lounges.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A homey little stay!"
A lovely, homey place. They worked very hard to keep us happy. A few little kinks need to be worked out in terms of after-hours coverage, and I wish the room had a bathtub. Other than that, we felt very nurtured there, and would return.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We'll definitely be back!"
We loved the Cheshire Cat Inn. The rooms were very clean and quiet, the food was terrific in the morning, and we enjoyed getting to know some of the other guests. We stayed in the Mad Hatter room, which we found to be cozy and comfortable. It's on the side of building facing the street. We were not bothered by street noise, but if you are the type of […] person who would be, then ask for a room away from the street. Street noise is very modest, anyway, since the inn is not right on State Street. Also, regarding the location, the inn is just a block off of State Street, and about 3 blocks away from where State Street starts to get interesting. So, you're very close, but not right in the hustle and bustle. We'll be back at some point! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful weekend away in our home town"
We live about 45 minutes away, but work and play in Santa Barbara. For our anniversary we decided we wanted to be able to stay up late, see live music, without the long drive home. The Cheshire Cat Inn was a lovely option for us. The 5:00 wine and cheese hour was a treat. The room was nice (the beds were comfortable, but not the pure luxury we are use […] to in some hotels). The Sunday breakfast was delicious. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Weekend Stay"
My fiancé came here over the weekend to recharge our batteries and to strengthen our bond. Cheshire Cat Inn provided the best setting and ambience to make that happen. The inn and our room was decorated beautifully and the inn keepers were the most gracious in attending to our needs. The location was away from busy downtown but close enough to walk […] to.

"a nice place to stay"
Overall, it was a nice stay. Breakfast was nice, but not tops for a B&B. Same is true for hospitality. It was odd that the evening inn keeper kept speaking about other guests (at first we thought she was kidding). The afternoon wine and apps was a nice touch along with the cookies and cake at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely little B&B"
My bf and I stopped at the Cheshire Cat for one night on our way up the coast. I wish we could have stayed longer! The price for the room was extremely reasonable, the customer service was wonderful, great location walking distance to the downtown, the breakfast was delicious (french toast and baked apples... mmm), and the room was cute and cozy. Would […] come back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Quaint, cozy and romantic"
We stayed in the Eberle room - it had a fireplace and a hot tub. It was sweet. Very romantic. The girlfriend enjoyed it quite a bit. The Inn is actually several buildings and the whole "estate" is very nice. Everything seemed clean and the decor was thoughtful. I'd recommend it!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Charming, Clean, Comfortable, Perfect!"
This was my third visit to the Cheshire Cat and as usual it did not disappoint! The rooms are cozy, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Complimentary wine and apps in the evening and a very lovely breakfast included in the morning. I not only will come back and visit again but recommend this lovely Inn to friends.You aren't in the center of town but […] a few blocks a way and walking distance from some fantastic restaurants (Bouchon!).

"Amazing Staff, Very clean, make sure you stay here"
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and This place was more pleasurable than expected. The home and staff are A++ superstars. Great breakfast every morning, the hot food was pretty amazing and the 5pm wine and snacks is an awesome touch. The patio is comfortable and they have a pretty garden area. If you are in the area and need a place to stay, […] I definitely recommend this place. its a block from state street and all of the shopping, restaurants, etc... the only cons: = It was warm during our stay, there is no air conditioning, except for a fan sitting on the floor. Screens on the windows to keep bugs out would help to leave the windows open during the night. =The bed was unconfortable, it could be that I think they are all uncomfortable since I sleep on a temperpudic cloud supreme mattress at home. ;-) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great welcoming inn"
I'm not usually the biggest fan of Inns or B&Bs but I loved the Cheshire Cat. The service was outstanding; the rooms were really nice and it was overall a really pleasant stay. Free parking. Brownies in the evenings. Walking distance to everything. I cannot fault the place. Great spot!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very comfortable spacious retreat"
We stayed in the Woodford cottage, my wife fell in love with it. Everything was spotlessly clean. Was basically a small house with everything you could want, small kitchen, bathroom, 2 bedrooms, living room. Nice hot tub as well. Only complaint was the noise (near State Street) not a fault of the room and the living room couch and the bed were uncomfortable. […] Everything else was perfect.

"Nice place to relax as you visit Santa Barbara"
Romantic getaway with most rooms having a large tub-jacuzzi. Pillows need help, though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great base to explore Santa Barbara"
We found the staff very warm and helpful. The afternoon wine and cheese was very generous and we enjoyed the breakfast very much. We found the location to be a great base to explore the area by bicycle as there are bike lanes both on State Street and on a quieter street a block down from the inn. Also, the trolley that runs to the beach leaves from […] nearby which made it more pleasant to leave the car at home. Between biking, walking and the trolley, we never moved our car after arriving.

"Cute and well-located B&B in Santa Barbara."
A very cute b&b conveniently located a short walk from numerous State Street restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the small room had all the amenities you could want except for a small refrigerator (which was available in the adjacent building). Will likely return, and would definitely recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review

We had an unforgettable experience. Lovely place, the staff is committed to do the very best. It is so clean, feels home. There is no way to discribe how good of a time my wife and I had there.

"Best Bed and Breakfast Inn we've ever experienced!"
We've stayed at a lot of bed and breakfasts over the years but the Cheshire Cat was the best. Connie and Bharti were wonderful innkeepers and made us feel quite at home. We stayed in the Mad Hatter which includes a king-sized bed and a small fridge. The room was clean, cozy and quiet. The breakfasts included scones hot out of the oven, fresh fruit and […] french toast filled with cream cheese. Wine and appetizers are served in the afternoon. Warm cookies and brownies in the evening. The Inn is within walking distance of many fine restaurants and first-rate shopping. My husband and I had a wonderful experience and hope to stay there again in the future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"perfect getaway to santa barbara"
It is hard to find a hotel that will allow a 1-night stay but Cheshire Cat, a pretty 2-story b n b, more than met our needs. We were greeted with an upgraded room on the 2nd floor which was cozy but certainly adequate. Loved the green colors in The Mad Hatters room. Our Innkeeper was so pleasant which started us on a good note. Loved the early evening […] hors d;ouevres and wine with the other guests by the fireplace. Good onsite parking. Quiet area near upper State Street. CLose to all the fun in downtown SB. Breakfast was wonderful too! For a place that has been around forever, it still felt wellkept and clean.

"Highly recommend Cheshire Cat Inn"
The Cheshire Cat Inn was great! The Inn is well located in the centre of Santa Barbara, a block from State Street and just a short walk into the centre of Santa Barbara. The rooms in the 2 houses of the Inn are spacious and beautifully decorated. The backyard of the houses has a lovely sitting area for reading a book on a warmer day. A generous breakfast […] was served at the family table in the main house. The staff were very friendly and helpful providing advice on what to do, how to get around and where to eat.

A delightful experience. The owners were friendly and seemed to truly enjoy hosting people (essentially in their home). The house itself is lovely - very cozy and charming. I will definitely be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Alice's Outdid Herself"
The hotel itself was beautiful. It was American Victorian with a touch of English Victorian. The room was well outfitted. The room amenities were adequate. The very best characteristic of the inn was the staff. Every person was superb. The host, the cook, the one who cleaned the room -- all were welcoming, pleasant, and had an excellent understanding […] of the vision and concept of the hotel. We were greatly impressed in a city that impresses at every turn. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Cheshire Cat Inn definitely has character"
The location is great, the BNB is ok. They have some interesting room options but it is a little in te expensive side for what you get. We were in a cottage with a fireplace but the fireplace did not work. The paper towels were not replaced nor were the bathroom towels. It felt a bit campy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"clean and lovely"
Absolutly nothing to complain about. Room, service, staff friendliness and helpfulness, all excellent. We will hope that it is available next time we go to Santa Barbara. Very clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
