Perfect place for us!
Reviewed 14 hours ago

2 adults, 2 grown kids, 1 car-4 days in Santa Barbara. Staying at the Upham was the perfect place for us. Our suite had 2 bedrooms and a nice pull-out bed so everyone had a comfy place to sleep. Kid 1-"This might be the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in." We were right downtown so we could walk to State Street to go to the public market, drugstore, Old Navy. The staff was wonderful-big shout out to Jazmine, she is awesome! Super friendly, helpful and very professional. The breakfasts were just right for us-something for everyone, including hard-boiled eggs for my protein men. The evening wine and cheese, the gorgeous grounds, the staff, really, We LOVED this place!

Very quaint location

I really liked this hotel. I spent several nights over the course of three weeks due to work. Let me start with the negative. It is an old hotel. It was built in the 1870's and it shows. You can hear guests walking on stairs and floors. It lacks a "modern" feel. That being said, there is a lot going for this hotel if you can deal with that one aspect. It is so quaint it is a great location to really relax and spend time with a loved one. I wish I'd been able to bring my wife here. Not really great for kids, more of a romantic location. They offer free wine, cheese and crackers at 5 pm, though the "cheese" is really more of a cheese spread. At 7:30 they provide cookies and milk. They have a great courtyard to sit and enjoy the wine with the great Santa Barbara weather. They offer free breakfast in the mornings, but that really only consists of cereal, bagels, fruit and hard boiled eggs. Coffee is available 24 hours. It is situated less than a mile from State Street (the main drag in Santa Barbara) and all the shops, restaurants and stores there. The beds are comfortable, and the staff do a great job cleaning each day. The hotel has parking which is great in Santa Barbara. Lastly, there is a restaurant, Louie's, on site. It's a good restaurant with good quality food and friendly staff.

I love this place. Big rooms, comfortable bed, great service, old-school charm. My only issue was lugging my heavy suitcase up the stairs. There is a bellman but he was busy. I enjoyed my stay here very much and would return any time.

Perfect place to get away!

This place was perfect for a girls get away! Room was really clean and bathroom was spotless! Loved having our own patio! The charming yard with chairs and a secret garden, gazebo and outdoor setting. Coffee and tea and water all day and night also a nice light breakfast. A short walk to State street where you can eat, shop or take in a movie. About 5 minute drive to the beach. And for those whom still smoke a space is available in the back.
