There's a reason the Spanish Garden Inn is rated #1 on Trip Advisor, which is how we discovered it prior to a wedding weekend in Santa Barbara - and thank goodness! It is absolutely darling, with just over 20 rooms, and the staff goes to great lengths to welcome guests - smiles, fresh cookies, delicious breakfasts and day-long lemonade service, plus fresh-ground coffee in the room...I only wish we could have spent longer there.
Traveling with a young adult son, I was able to book a delicious Junior Suite with a door that closed between both rooms (and included two separate terraces) - perfect! Plus, the Moulton Brown bath products are divine...
While not on the beach, there's a lovely pool, with courtyards and flowers, a genuine oasis just three blocks off the main shopping street.
One added note: I inadvertently left my own "travel" pillow behind and the General Manager, Brian Cogswell, was in contact with me several times about it. When it couldn't initially be located, he offered to replace it - very gracious of him, and seemingly typical of the hands-on style of interaction you just cannot expect in larger, showier hotels. I will eagerly look forward to another stay here...
