“Exceeded my expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

This B&B pleasantly exceeded my expectations in both accommodations and hospitality. This B & B is well maintained and clean. The inn keeper is very personable and professional. The check in process was very smooth and welcoming. This is a great place to stay if you are planing on enjoying the SB night club scene because the inn is a 7 minute walk to most downtown nightlife.

My boyfriend took me on a "mystery ride" for the holidays, and what a wonderful place to start!!! He had booked a room at the White Jasmine Inn and it was amazing! The room with two fireplaces, jet tub and cozy bed, along with the welcoming and friendly service of John made this one of the best getaways ever!!! And, as a super bonus, they deliver to you the most wonderful, hot breakfast I have ever had...thank you to all at the White Jasmine Inn. If I am ever back in your area I will for sure be staying at your place, and, hopefully longer than 1 day!!!!

We recently booked a one nice stay last minute and found the owner extremely accomadating. The Inn is cozy and wonderfully decorated with a great blend of antiques and modern ammenities like the private hot tub outside our room on a private porch. Breakast was amazing and served piping hot right to your doorstep. You can't ask for better service than that! We throughly enjoyed our stay, would highly recommend this wonderul little get away and will deinitely be back next time we visit Santa Barbara.

Just returned from a 2 night stay in the Craftsmen Room. The owner, John, was friendly and welcoming. I loved the unique room we stayed in. The private entrance was great and we enjoyed the private spa on the patio. The bed was amazing and the sheets were incredibly soft. The only the downside was the small bathroom, but that didn't bother me at all.
I really loved how breakfast was brought to our door in a cute basket. Most B&B's we stay at serve breakfast in the common area.
The location was perfect as we could easily walk to State Street. I would stay here again!

My wife and i stayed here for a night on our road trip along Highway 1. The owner, John, is an ex-New Yorker, and a real character. His banter, and wisecracks come thick and fast, but try to keep up. Santa Barbara is gorgeous. If you find yourself there, we visited the court house for stunning views of the sunset. After that we had really nice wine and cheese at Intermezzo, and then a very nice evening meal in Brophy's. The White Jasmine Inn has ample parking space, a very nice garden, and is well located. The room we were in was a little twee, but if you dig floral patterns, then you'll love it. The breakfast was well worth it, a basket of fresh fruit, home-made muffins, and a really nice frittata. We would definitely stay here again.

This B&B was just what my boyfriend and I were looking for - reasonably priced, great location, comfortable and clean. The owner even up-graded our room for free! The breakfast was home-made and delicious. Great experience at this Santa Barbara B&B.

Room Tip: We highly recommend the Wild Rose room, which had a fireplace and a partial mountain view.

This place reminds me of the Bates Motel from the movie Psycho. The Innkeeper with his Norman Bates personality was unpleasant and hard to understand. If you make a reservation at this place you better not cancel, because you'll still be charged for the room plus fees. That's the way the people that run this old place with small rooms roll.
