We really thought that this was a cute hotel right in Montecito and about 5 minutes away from Santa Barbara. It felt like something out of the movies. They have free breakfast in the morning and staff is very pleasant. The pool was nice as well. Montecito was cute and had some boutique shops. We did walk around, but didn't actually go into the stores. It has some nice restaurants as well, which was nice to walk to from our hotel. We went to Lucky's (right next door) for dinner. The one down side was that our room was a little stuffy--no air to put on, only ceiling fan. We were there on Oct. 31, when it wasn't really that hot out, so not sure if I would want to stay in the summer. I would stay here again.
