More Room Types

Originally constructed in 1871, the Upham Hotel & Country House is a collection of cottages on an acre of gardens. Touted as the longest continuously operating hotel in Southern California, the 4-star inn’s rooms were renovated in 2014 including the addition of air conditioning and Wi-Fi connections.

The intimate property has only 50 guest rooms and balances stylish antiques found in most bed and breakfasts with contemporary furniture. All rooms have flat-screen televisions and desks with the choice of two queen beds or one king bed; some also have fireplaces and private patios.

In addition to daily cooked-to-order breakfast, room rates also include afternoon wine and cheese served around the fireplace or on the wraparound porch. Before bed, guests are treated to milk and cookies. Louie’s, located off the lobby, has served upscale California comfort food for nearly three decades paired with a wide array of wines from Napa Valley.

Located in downtown Santa Barbara, the hotel is one mile from Presidio Historic Park and State Street shopping. The area is home to five colleges and offers a vibrant nightlife scene on State Street. Santa Ynez is a 45-minute car ride from the property and is a great day trip for those looking to explore beyond the city limits.
