Spanish Garden Inn Review

A half block from the Presidio in the heart of downtown, this elegant Spanish-Mediterranean retreat celebrates Santa Barbara style, from the tile floors, wrought-iron balconies, and exotic plants, to the original art by local plein-air artists. The luxury rooms have private balconies or patios, fireplaces, Frette linens, and deep soaking tubs. In the evening, you can order a glass of wine and relax in the candlelit courtyard. This inn is a good choice if you want to park your car for most of your stay and walk to theaters, restaurants, and shops.
