Short walk to beach and beautiful Harbor with great restaurants. Convenient for anyone visiting SBCC. Plenty of options for breakfast in morning. I would stay here again.

Exceptionally Average But Clean
I travel for my business every other week. With that said, this property would be about 2.5 to 3 stars. Older property that appeared to be fairly well maintained. Room was exceptionally clean and beds were comfortable. Breakfast is about what you would expect, nothing exceptional but acceptable. Rates are a little pricey, but then so is the location. For a room like this in my business travels I would expect to pay $125 - $150 before taxes. Also there was a "service fee" of $7.50 per night. For what, I have no idea. Would I return? Possibly, but I would have to get the service fee explained.
Don, us3 night trip
Avania Inn of Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara
Overall the room worked. The pool and spa tub did not look clean at all so we didn’t dare use them even though I had really wanted to. The staff wasn’t friendly at all. Also, the hot/cold breakfast was more like just a cold continental breakfast NOT a hot/cold buffet. A dirty burnt waffle iron does not count as a hot buffet. All that was offered was sour coffee, juice, cereal, muffins and a dirty waffle iron.
