Property Description

The Upham Hotel and Garden Cottages is the oldest continuously operating hostelry in Southern California, situated on an acre of gardens in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. Close enough, but not too close, to Los Angeles, Santa Barbara possesses a beautiful natural setting by the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific. It is a red-tile, white-adobe, flower-decked town evoking romanticized Spanish California. Just two blocks off State Street, within easy walking distance of several restaurants, shops, theatres and tasting rooms.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

"During my search for a hotel in Cape Cod, my hair started going grey very quickly. Each time I found a hotel, either the prices were through the roof or the hotel was a complete dump. I accidentally called you when I thought I was calling a hotel in the Cape Cod area. It was the best mistake I could have ever made! You took down all the details and specifications that I needed and THE VERY NEXT DAY I had a list of hotels that met my requirements." A.C. - Cape Cod, MA
