Overall satisfied
We loved the location of this hotel and really enjoyed our stay overall! We loved the proximity to the restaraunts. However, for such an expensive room the bathrooms are very dated. The shower was rusted and could really use an update The toilet handle was loose and had to be held down to flush for the entire flush The bathtub was rusted and old on the fixtures as well and the tub itself seemed very dusty and grimey which was disappointing as we were traveling with our 6 month old son and needed a tub.

Great hotel in an excellent location! The only reason we didn't give it 5-stars was due to the fact that the restaurant is still not yet open (which meant no room service)during our stay. Other than that, fantastic!

Weekend getaway
This hotel is in the heart of Montecito, which makes it very nice. It's a very old building which has been updated. Because of the age of the hotel, the rooms are somewhat loud (you can hear your neighbors). The rooms are cozy rather than spacious. You do have to pay 15.00 per night for parking which I wasn't aware of. The staff is all very pleasant, and I would stay here again.

Beautiful, clean & cozy
Everything add everyone was lovely. Of course, the hotel is small, it’s a famous Charlie Chaplin’s cozy home that was converted into a cute hotel. Sweet memories were made. Wish the weather was nicer ~ it would’ve been even more exciting! 😊

Charming Inn in the heart of Montecito
So happy to see that the Inn has been completely restored after the devastating mudslides a few months ago. The entire area outside has been replanted and it looks great. We stayed in the Tower Room, and while it is a very unique and charming room, the bathroom had a few quirks that weren't working, such as steam shower controls, handle for 2nd shower sprayer, etc. Some of the furniture is a bit worn as well. But generally, nice room with character. You stay up pretty high and have a great look out over the village, but with this also comes some traffic noise from the 101, so just be aware if you choose this room. Love the history and being right in the village to walk to restaurants and shops.
