Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JonMort 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jofo14 Unique Hotel near the beach and restaurants
Hotel Indigo was a comfortable and relaxing spot in Santa Barbara easily within walking distance of restaurants and the beach. The rooms are cozy and small, but for 1-2 people, the efficiency is nice and, to some, even desirable. There was enough closet and drawer space and my bags could slide under the bed. The bathroom was small (I could touch each wall both ways), but it was a fun experience and still had everything you could need in a bathroom. Overall, very nice experience. The only negative would be that there was not an elevator at the hotel, so our bags had to be carried up the stairs, which was inconvenient, but not a deal breaker.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TimXKR Very Cool
We loved our 1st stay in this pet friendly hotel as we installed our son at UCSB. The rooms are on the small side but very well appointed and comfortable throughout. What makes it cool is the original building is very old and was completely rebuilt on the inside so it has wonderful raw brick accents showing through ultra modern design and material finishes. The enclosed patio was perfect for our dog and lovely to sit and have coffee and a class of wine in. We couldn't understand some of the complaint comments about the rooms being small when when it was made abundantly clear they're not big, anyone that has travel Europe would't care.
The attached restaurant has a great menu that also works as a tapas menu, we sat outside for two of the nights, the entire front opens up so even if you can't get an outside table you don't feel cut off from the great the State Street vibe. Wine by the glass is on the pricey side.
Definitely on our speed dial for the next SB visit.
