Our Wedding Hotel

June 14th we eloped to Santa Barbara! While in the planning stages I initially booked the RC Bacara which was extremely expensive, luckily I came to my sense and cancelled that reservation and booked us at The Upham Hotel.

This hotel and the grounds are SO darling we were SO thrilled I had cancelled the Bacara. The Upham is small, quiet, intimate, did I mention the fireplace?

The snacks throughout the day, provided breakfast and ample free parking - (say what ! Pretty sure free parking is unheard of at most SB hotels) also just add to a lovely stay. Side note for early risers or those with insomnia, which I had during my stay, at 4am I ventured to the lobby - there is a sign that says Just Knock - I did and the night shift gentleman was happy to make a pot of coffee for me - that is personal touch !!

Anyone who reviewed this hotel stating "old, tired" I have no idea what hotel they stayed at, The Upham was literally a perfect stay.

Beautiful !

Wow! What an amazing surprise! Everybody warned us that Santa Barbara’s hotel are super expensive and so when we got to pay that price we thought it will be a big disappointment , of course it turned up to be such an amazing stay! Prime location by the way! We highly recommend it !

Best hotel on our PCH vacation

Stayed in 5 very nice hotels from Santa Cruz to LA via the PCH. This one was special. Well located, great setting, comfortable, nice staff. Our room was very comfy, breakfast was great and they serve wine and snacks for HH and milk and Oreos post-dinner. Would definitely recommend if you can fit it into your budget.
