Fabulous 8.6 From 235 reviews

The Upham Hotel
A Great Place in a Fantastic Town
The hotel is just a five minute walk from the main street. Parking was fine for us in the hotel car park but it is quite small for the number of rooms available. Breakfast was buffet style and had pastries, cereals, hard boiled eggs, fruit, yogurts and juices and coffee. There was also wine and cheese available in the afternoon and Oreos and drinks at night time. The room was large, clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. We got some laundry done as well which was reasonably prices by hotel standards. Santa Barbara itself is wonderful with lots of good shops, bars and restaurants.

Very Good8.0
Really lovely place and staff were polite and helpful. We had a room out the back in the out houses which was tiny, but still cute and nicely decorated. Nice little touches like milk and cookies out in the evening.

Peaceful gem
We were given an upgrade to a cottage which was lovely. Beautiful gardens and very peaceful. Complimentary breakfast and wine and cheese in the evenings were excellent. Hotel is convenient for State street shops and restaurants and beach. No pool but otherwise perfect

The Upham Hotel
Ok but not excellent
The hotel room was not as excellent as the reviews... it was kinda low end of hotel stays. Room had a quaint smell. The bath rub was too old to be inviting for a bath... it was a holiday inn kind of experience. The staff were quite nice tho.

The Upham Hotel
Excellent hotel, quiet and comfortable
Stayed at the Upham for one night. We had a room above the Carriage House, which was very comfortable and quiet. Enjoyed the Happy Hour wine and cheese, plus having Louis' Restaurant in the same building is very convenient - excellent food and service. Only minor issue is tight parking, but it is at least off the street. Will stay there again.
