Rooms could use some updating. Small bathroom. Location was excellent

Not what I bargained for.
Our room was not like the photos we looked at. It was rather small. Valet parking was the only option even with Corona Virus. I refused, but was still charged until I complained. Breakfast was supposed to be included. When we went downstairs they informed us they did not have breakfast. I get it... a lot is going on. Just be upfront with the details. The bed was very comfortable. The only big plus.

Historic inn with modern conveniences and service
Fun historic inn with all the modern conveniences located in an area packed with restaurants and shops. The staff were all very welcoming and any requests we made were handled efficiently. The bathroom towels are large, Soft and plentiful and there are nice soft bathrobes. Valet parking was fast, efficient and reasonably priced at $15 per day with 24 hour in/ out access. The ocean is within a 15 minute walk, with sidewalks.

Such a fun weekend
Easy check-in, we got complimentary valet, water and coffee complimentary, nice staff. Really old building with tiny guest room bathrooms (tip: use the lobby bathrooms, which is a bit inconvenient, but way better) RENT THE BIKES AND RIDE DOWN TO THE BEACH/STATE STREET!

Overnight to the Village
Great remodel of the 1928 Gem in a perfect location. Caught it off peak so rate was fantastic. 3rd floor has the old world charm, quiet at night although walls are thin and vents carry a lot of sounds in the morning. Super cool old elevator. Montecito is just such a great town, thank god most people stay in SB lets keep it a secret...too late.

The Ultimate Hotel in Montecito
The Montecito Inn is an historic piece of what makes Montecito so special. But the attitude, kindness, service of all of the staff members has it's own magic.

Everthing was good but i found a sock tucked in with the linen.

Poor 2.0
Treated like a 2nd class citizen.
Worst experience at a hotel I’ve ever had. I’ve stayed at this property more than a half a dozen times over the last 5 years and in the past have always enjoyed this property. Buyer beware. I booked a room through and didn’t get a confirmation so I extended my current hotel. The confirmation came in late so I called and they said it should not be a problem to cancel that night, they only needed to contact the hotel. They did and said it was complete. I arrived at the hotel (luggage on a cart in the lobby) and was told I was a no show so I would be charged the first night after an hour with they then changed their story and said I would be charged for both nights even though I decided that with the poor experience I would not be spending another night here ever again. I left and they then called me and said that they would be charging me both nights if I didn’t return promptly. I replied - that they had aggressively stated that I was a no show. If I was a no show shouldn’t I only be charged the first night’s reservation. The billed me approximately $600 for a room I never stayed in. I asked to speak to a manager - but no managers are available at checking time - in what world does this make sense. DO NOT STAY HERE.

Staff was kind. The facility was clean and the hot tub & jacuzzi was great. The wall unfortunately are super thin and we had challenges with the shower our last morning. The complimentary breakfast was very nice as well.
