Hotel of the week: Montecito Inn, Montecito, Calif.

Charlie Chaplin built the Mediterranean-style Montecito Inn as a haven for his closest friends.

“Hollywood plays a role” at the Montecito Inn, said Bill Daley in the Chicago Tribune. Silent-film legend Charlie Chaplin founded the historic roadside inn in 1928. Since then, stars ranging from Kirk Douglas to Oprah Winfrey have stayed the night inside its olive-green doors. Tucked away in a “posh oceanside enclave” just east of Santa Barbara, the Mediterranean-style hotel was originally built as a haven for Chaplin’s closest friends. Today, anyone cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway can enjoy its vintage charms. Contact: Montecitoinn.com
