Montecito Inn
Not really a 4 star!
Only stayed for one night but I wasn't impressed with this 4 star hotel. The walls were very thin and you could hear everything! Room was quite small and bathroom was tiny. Not much to do in montecito either. A lot of money for one night in an average hotel which I wouldn't stay in again.

Never stayed in a hotel like this in my whole life
The receptionists were rude and unpleasant! The rooms had very odd smells. The bathroom was very tiny with a very old shower. The breakfast was terrible and there was nowhere to sit apart standing in the corridor. down. Coffee and tea were undrinkable. The whole experience was dreadful.

Montecito Inn
Lovely hotel - Clean, comfortable and convenient.
This was just a 1 night stay to have a quick look at Santa Barbara. The 'Inn' was very easy to get to and the room was lovely and comfortable, We enjoyed having a swim in the pool and lying in the sun to relax. The next morning we had a nice breakfast before setting off again. Overall we had a great experience and all too brief.
