This is a nicely maintained hotel located on Bath Street, in a residential area of Santa Barbara, away from commercial traffic. Flowers, landscaping, vines, beautiful stone work, beamed ceilings and charming touches were reminiscent of an inn in the wine country. Room was spacious, immaculate, very comfortable, and quiet. There was a great bed and luxury bedding. Each day there was complimentary fresh fruit, bottled water, candies, and weekday newspaper.Lemon/herb scented Crabtree and Evelyn toiletries were especially nice. Hotel Staff was pleasent, helpful and accommodating. WE ate suppper one night at the on-site restaurant, Las Aves, which was excellent. We loved this hotel and plan to return.
