We stayed two nights in January and liked the place very much. I will try to go back there if I come back to Santa Barbara. Rooms were clean, staff was friendly. The happy hours are a nice touch.

We had a comfortable, pleasant stay at the Lavender Inn by the Sea. It is furnished very nicely and is close to the beach. The shops of State Street are walkable. In particular, we found the woman at the desk very friendly and helpful. We would recommend it as an affordable, nice place to stay.

This is a delightful, cozy inn that I will visit again and again. The rooms are very cozy with warm colors. My bathroom was reminiscent of the old Santa Barbara cottages with brightly colored tile and quaint bath fixtures. I did not want to leave my room. There are sitting areas outside where you can relax with your wine and cheese which is provided in the afternoon. Milk and cookies are set out for the evening along with unlimited hot tea and coffee service. I was astonished at the morning continental breakfast. An abundance of pastries, fruit, bagels, cereal and hard boiled eggs will leave you full of energy! The staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a beautiful little inn hidden two blocks from the beach and only about four blocks from State Street.

The woman who checked us in was very personable and friendly. That should be a given at any hotel you stay at, but is not always the case. This hotel is only two blocks from the beach and within walking distance of the Wharf, many restaurants, the Santa Barbara Visitors/Information Center, a beautiful park that has a playground for children, and the downtown shopping area. If you are up for a slightly longer walk, but still a fairly short distance, you can walk to the Santa Barbara Zoo. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Evening wine and cheese and cookies, and a very nice continental breakfast (with great pastries) were all included. They had a beautiful pool, which we didn’t have a chance to use, but it looked clean and inviting. We wished we could have stayed longer than two days. We are very pleased with our stay at the Lavender Inn by the Sea.
