Our Story

The Franciscan Inn has grown from the modest 21-room Franciscan Motel in 1976 to the stylish 53-room Spanish-Mediterranean hideaway that exists today. The original owners of this unique property continue to welcome guests, along with our long-term staff who have become members of our hospitality family.

The Inn has become an ideal refuge for the modern traveler–whether you’re visiting for business, vacation or an extended stay, you’ll enjoy warm hospitality along with Santa Barbara’s world-renowned attractions and legendary climate.
