Chantico Inn, Santa Barbara
Surprise visits
We had stayed at this hotel in the past and enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and happy hour. The standard room is pretty small but ok for two people. This stay was different, unfortunately we had a roach in our room. It was late at night when we discovered it, so we waited until the next morning. My boyfriend went to tell the front office, they told him they will look into it. Nothing really happened after that. We didn’t push the issue because we were waiting for their response. We stayed for 4 nights, the last night we found another one and I told them the next morning when I checked out. I felt like they should have at least moved us to another room when we complaint the first time. That was the main issue with this hotel. If the room did not have any roaches, I would have enjoyed my stay here.

No closet in the room. TV remote did not work. WiFi would not connect in spite of night staff working on it for 30 minutes.

Don't Go There
The location is great and within easy walking distance to the many downtown shops, restaurants, events. The woman who checked me in was nice. That said, the room was very dimly lit and everything was in poor condition and/or broken. Had to fuss with broken shutter to close so people could not look in. Broken, uncloseable drawers in bathroom vanity. No place to hang clothes up. Dirt caked in "antiques". Hot tub moldy and spotty. Unclean and unpleasant smell made relaxing impossible. They make you pay in full at check-in and I understand why. Would never recommend or go there again.

Great little hotel.
I loved this cute little hotel - they have a great heated pool and the rooms were so unique with different antique type furniture everywhere. Its so refreshing from the standard hotel rooms full of the same Ikea stuff. Location is just down the street from downtown area making this whole trip very walkable. They also hosted a happy hour with wine where we could chat with other guests and learn about other fun things to do in the area and share our experiences.
