Front office staff/owner was amazingly friendly and welcoming. The room is large and clean. The bathroom is a bit small for the size room but serviceable. Location, Location, Location. This place is very affordable considering how close to the boardwalk/ocean it is.

The desk personnel and the service staff was friendly and helpful. The only disappointment was the breakfast advertised in the Castillo Inn website and not served during my stay. I understood it was due to the pandemic situation but shouldn't it been mentioned by Travelocity and by the Inn itself before I booked? Otherwise, my stay was very pleasant and I would recommend this establishment.

This is a great little place for a weekend (or weekday) getaway. It’s a small hotel the the rooms are far better than the price you pay. Check in was easy, snd the manager (who’s been there a long time) was incredibly friendly and pleasant to deal with. You’re literally a block from the beach. Just around the corner is a great breakfast place (Chads). It’s not some big fancy chain or luxury hotel - it’s a perfect place to lay your head while you’re out exploring Santa Barbara.
