Lavender Inn by the Sea, Santa Barbara
Good3.0 / 5
Room near beach
This is a very quaint little hotel. Rooms are small, and parking can be difficult in the small lot. Hotel employees were very nice. The room decor is quite outdated, and had an unclean feel - woodwork and doors were dirty, and light fixtures were dirty. The beds are comfortable, good access to beach (about a 5 min walk) and great little patio with wine and cheese in the afternoon.

Had business nearby so we decided to book two nights, giving us a play day in Santa Barbara. Cute little place, very walkable to everything. The bottle of champagne in the fridge and the lavender sachets on the pillows were nice. Would certainly stay there again if I was going to SB.

I had to come in to move my son for college adn this hotel was .04 from his apartment and right down the street from shopping, coffee shops, spas. Great place!

I would stay here again in a second!
All the "extras" really made our stay special: the free parking, the upgrade to king bed & sparkling wine, the free breakfast / wine & cheese hour / cookies & milk hour/, the free bikes, the pool & hot tub, the staff suggestions, etc...

I thought it would be better.
It was okay. The woman checking me in seemed to be a bit grumpy. The location was good, but I thought the name and photos were deceiving.
