Beautiful hotel
Great hotel! Wonderful location (however some construction going on next door, will wake you up early morning). Thanks to Nick who was so helpful and welcoming!

Quaint experience...
We arrived at the Montecito Inn for a four day stay for a mini celebration of our 35th Wedding Anniversary. The staff greeted us nicely and checkin was a breeze. The Inn had a quaint beautiful lobby with an on going fireplace lit every day and provided a continental breakfast each morning for all. I spent sometime the next morning by the pool and it was nice but nothing impressive, no attendant around. Our room was quaint with a great fluffy bed, great decor, and a well designed bathroom with a touch of European class, but a window view of the roof top took away from the special feel. All in all a very nice stay. Would stay here again.

Great solo trip spot
This hotel was in a great location and had a lot of character. Because of the age of the hotel, it is a little noisy in the mornings but otherwise it was quiet. There is a great restaurant in the hotel and is within walking distance of amazing restaurants and boutiques.

Really dislike the fact, it is Monticito Inn, in the city of Montecito they should have a more representable hotel, the pictures on the website might seem good but are not, the shower switch off depends if ur neighbor is using it so it turns cold if they put hot, they say newly renivated but was only exterior and NO interior work done, the hotel is pretty old. Next time i would be staying at the Best Western Beachside Inn, for about $50 more a night. And the Soap stays on your hands no matter how long you wash it off for. Good gym though.
