This inn is conveniently located just outside of Santa Barbara, nestled in peaceful, upscale Montecito. As usual, the first room I was escorted to was unacceptable--hot, stuffy, and dark. The second room was cool, airy and bright--with a festive view of the adjoining restaurant and bar. Unfortunately, the carpet was damp. I loved having coffee service in the lobby 24/7. The front desk personnel were welcoming and helpful, but the bellboys were rushed. The breakfast service was terrific. In short, this old inn could use a little tlc.
