      Classic inn/hotel with good restaurant. Quiet, well appointed rooms with pleasant relaxing areas.

      The Upham had the most comfortable bed out of all of the places we stayed. It is also a great location in Santa Barbara and was close to all of the things we wanted to see and do.

      I think the breakfast could offer something hot (I.E., eggs, bacon/sausage, etc.). I was getting a little tired of the same bread, cereal and cold muffins.

      Kind and diligent service. Changed rooms when realizing we had more luggage. Good continental breakfast. Provided good information about the city and directions of continuation of our trip.

      Drains of sink and shower were damaged.

      I was expecting the rooms to be more luxurious for the price I paid.

      It was lovely to stay in such a historical hotel and the grounds were truly beautiful - we had a relaxing time sitting outside in the garden and reading for a while.

      We just didn't see the value for the money. It's nice to have a reception of "cheese and wine", but there's no good reason for a place like this to serve cheap white wine and a "cheese ball" spread. This is just miles from wine country so showcase a good (affordable) local red and white and even a large slab of brie from Costco would class things up a bit. The same deal with the night time "cookies and milk" - a store bought bakery cookie would seem a lot nicer than a tray of Oreos. Room itself was very nice; bathroom could really use some work.

      My husband and I thought the grounds were lovely. Very peaceful and relaxing and yet just steps from everything Santa Barbara has to offer on State Street, shopping, restaurants and entertainment. We will definitely come back here from now on when visiting Santa Barbara. Louie's Restaurant on the grounds was another plus, good food and great atmosphere dining on the outside porch was wonderful. The cocktail hour every evening and breakfast every morning was icing on the cake. I will recommend this hotel to all our friends and family.

      The grounds were beautiful. The room was very comfortable and serene.

      The cookies offered in the evening were not homemade.

      They upgraded us from a queen room to a king room without us even asking. Overall, a very enjoyable place to stay. Enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and it's proximity to State Street. The front desk personnel were very friendly and accommodating.

      Could hear a lot of talking through the walls. Hotel appears to be showing some wear and tear. Would have been nice to have a flat screen. Our room didn't have one but noticed another room on our floor had one.

      The hotel was fabulous. Unbelievable comfort. It was like stepping back in time. The smell of fresh baking, the fresh cookies on the tables and some wine. It was our honeymoon and we could not of picked a better place to spend it. We were sorry to leave but we will be back.

      privacy, excellent breakfast food choices, quiet atmosphere, nice decor and sitting area in lobby , friendly and smiling staff, lovely peaceful garden. We will be back....

      1. the bath robes were nice, but there is no place to hang them in the bathroom ( not one hook). Actually, there are not enough racks for hanging and drying the bath towels without squishing them all together on one short towel rack. We loved our room #40 but although there are several places in the bath where one could add robe and towel hooks (on the back of the door, near the shower, higher up above the toilet area) there were none. You could also add robe hooks on the horizontal 1X4 wood running along the back wall in the closet. 2. It was very nice to have a gas fireplace, but the fake logs were piled up high in front of the gas outlets and you couldn't see any flames at all except as two small spots under the logs.... the flame actually was hidden behind the logs... not the luxurious atmosphere one was expecting and rather disappointing, but this could be fixed easily.

      Lovely Hotel in great grounds. They do wine tasting every night and put on a great breakfast.

      It's slightly off pitch if I'm being picky. We didn't think it was a problem but if you're walking to the beach it takes about 20 mins.
