Lavender Inn by the Sea, Santa Barbara
Very Good8.0
Location near the beach
Clean and small boutique hotel.
Michael, us1 night trip
Lavender Inn by the Sea, Santa Barbara
Really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again! If I could change anything it would be the pillows, they were uncomfortable. Overall the stay was great! The wine and cheese hour was very nice, but would definitely add jelly/jam to the cheese platter to go with Brie. :) thanks for nice stay. Upon leaving we did notice ants crawling onto a plate on our night stand. Otherwise the place was clean and was very enjoyable.

Well-managed hotel worth the money
The Lavender Inn is easy to find, it's conveniently located close to Stearn Wharf and downtown SB. We walked to the restaurants and shops in downtown without any problem. The hotel is well managed, and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. I love their thoughtful all-day food services. The most memorable part of our staying is their lobby which let us feel warm and comfortable like being at home. People feel free to hang out and enjoy food next to the fireplace.
