For the price, the Castillo Inn was a pretty good deal. The room was clean, spacious and cute, and the property is very well located near the harbor. However, the few blankets on the bed were pretty thin and the pillows were completely flat. Overall, a fair choice on a budget.

Flexible and friendly staff. Older building with tiny parking area, no pool or spa but close to the waterfront. Breakfast did not open until 7 AM so we were not able to partake and noone else in town for the same event was either.

Beautiful small hotel, but very high end and cozy. Perfect stay for a weekend in Santa Barbara and central location made it ideal to walk to restaurants and the beach.

Very nice room. Dan and Noah were really friendly and helpful at hotel reception. We were lucky and received a room upgrade. Very large, clean, well appointed and stylish rooms with quality furnishings , finishes and appliances. The room was very quiet and the bed super comfortable. Great location right by the beach. 👍😊 - Wendi Graf

We were upgraded upon arrival to a two bedroom suite with a fully equipped kitchen. It was a pleasant surprise as our two teens would definitely prefer more space. The property has free onsite parking and coffee and pastries in the morning. The location was a quick walk to State Street restaurants and the harbor. We would definitely stay here again.

The room is very nicely decorated and we really enjoyed the balcony. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Most of all the location is perfect. It’s across the street from the marina and very close to Downtown Santa Barbara.
