Comfortable but needs an update
For the price, the hotel could be much nicer. It needs to be updated. For this price I would expect more.

The room was very small and the bed wasn’t great. Location was amazing, staff was great.

Lovely hotel, but the elevator is a huge problem. It's an old-fashioned European-style metal grate cage with an ultra-heavy door as well. Barely possible to manage with bags. Interior light was out, so it was pitch black between floors. Not so comfortable for riding with strangers.

This is an old facility. The rooms are small, the elevator is not good. The staff were fine and helpful but it is tough for them to overcome the age of the property.

Quaint and historic
Older hotel so rooms are smaller, bathrooms not as lavish, elevator old school with accordian inner gate closing. But service was fantastic, quaint, hotel, lovely area. Just have your expectations set accordingly and it will be an enjoyable stay. If you wanted a modern 5 star rooms, go to the Four Seasons down the road. If you want a quaint, historical experience, then Montecito Inn fits the order.
