Lavender Inn by the Sea, Santa Barbara
Outstanding5.0 / 5
The hotel was fantastic! We were greeted by Peter on the front desk who was extremely helpful and professional. The hotel itself is in a lovely area which is walking distance to the beach, State St which has lots of shops, restaurants and bars. There were so lovely touches like the complimentary champagne in the room and wine and cheese each afternoon. We stayed here for a few days after a west coast road trip and it was the perfect end to an amazing trip!

Perfect and attractive little hotel
Really great place to stay. Very good location for sightseeing close to shops, harbour, train station and major roads. Couldn't fault it. Staff so friendly and helpful, a nice choice for the cold buffet breakfast and pretty patios to sit and relax with your coffee etc. Pool was nice too and the outdoor furniture all super comfy and clean. Room spacious comfortable with everything you could expect and more. Good wi fi signal too. We would love to stay again.

We were absolutely 'over the moon' when we arrived in our room to complementary Champagne, late following heavy traffic....!!!!!! How relaxing and a thoughtful surprise as it was a special Birthday Celebration.... :-D :-D xx The large bed was was the bathroom / shower facilities. The room was especially comfortable with controlled heat / air conditioning and fridge etc.. Breakfast was lovely....sitting on the patio / terrace in the sun with fresh food. Could not have been any better for the money we paid.... THANK YOU...!!!! Keep Up The Good Work Guys... The Signature Lavender Bag did help us sleep.... Such a lovely aroma..."""

A great place to stay, with lots of extras.
We had a lovely stay at the Lavender Inn. Such a charming place. We had a huge room with lounge area, 2 shower rooms (although one shower didn't seem to work), and enormous bed that was soooo comfortable. This is one hotel that gives a lot of extras for your stay. We had cheese and biscuits and wine in the afternoons, and cookies and milk in the evening, along with a free bottle of champagne in the room fridge, and they will provide you with movies on DVDs to watch if you so choose. There is a nice heated pool and hot tub for you to use. The location was good, within good walking distance of the Harbour and Pier and the main shopping area. We would definitely stay here again. You get a lot of value for your dollar here!
