Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 122 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect location for car-free SB getaway We wanted to enjoy a few days in Santa Barbara without having to worry about parking and the other hassles of car travel, so this location - just around the corner from the lovely SBA Amtrak station - was perfect. Wharf, beach, and downtown all within an easy walk. Very sleek and modern European-style interior and furnishings. Friendly, alert, helpful staff. The small private patio was a nice unanticipated bonus to the ground-floor room. September 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the Hotel Indigo, Santa Barbara Great place to stay, we return often and are always so happy with the accommodations, location, decor, food, etc. September 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HI Santa Barbara Awesome staff and accomodations. The staff were fantastic and the food at BT next door was great. Rooms are spectactularly clean and fresh sheets. Very refreshing to have a garden patio to sit out on and enjoy. August 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Best hotel in downtown Santa Barbara! I am a returning customer and enjoy my stay everytime I come. Frank and hao are always welcoming and Amanda makes sure all my needs are met. Whether it's a recommendation for an activity or restaraunt, the front desk is very helpful and knowledgable. I really feel like a local now . I love the style and decoration as well as location. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Hotel. Stay here!!!! My girlfriend and I stayed two nights at Hotel Indigo. It is unlike any hotel we have ever stayed at. The rooms offer a convenient and efficient way to spend vacation. This hotel is located a block from the beach and a block from downtown Santa Barbara. We discovered early in our vacation that Taxi Fares in Santa Barbara are expensive so this hotel is ideal being so close to everything. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. August 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful Experience The hotel staff was friendly and welcoming during our entire stay ~ regardless of who was 'on duty'. The coffee an pastries in the morning were fresh, the room was clean and very comfortable. The only down side (if I were to find one) was we could not get the room quite cool enough! With 3 of is in a room with 2 double beds, 67 degrees wasn't quite cool enough; but I understand the reason for it as it is a green hotel! The products in the bathroom were lovely! Because my mother's car has ADA plates, we were not charged for parking, which was nice. Due to the fire in the Blue Tavern the day before our arrival, we were not able to use the restaurant attached to the hotel - there was no damage or smoke smell in the hotel from the fire. It was also convenient to have the train station within walking distance when my son took the train up to spend one of the days with us. Over all, an incredible visit and stay at the hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and service Had a great time here! Very convenient to all the tourist sites of the city and the staff was super helpful. Highly recommend it. August 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Second great stay at this hotel We stopped here last year on our travels in California and liked both the hotel and location so much that we decided to use some points and have a couple of nights there. Great service and very comfortable bed. Ideal location for the marina, beach and downtown. August 18, 2014
