I wanted to take my new wife on a mini-honeymoon right after our wedding and decided to stay in Santa Barbara. Since neither one of us had stayed at a bed and breakfast before, I thought it might be a good experience to try one out. I reserved the room online, however, be careful because the website is notoriously inaccurate and I received a call and had to change rooms.
The B&B is located on a residential street, but stands out with it's historic look. Check-in is between 3pm-6pm and then the innkeeper leaves for the evening. If you cannot make it between these hours, I highly recommend calling and making arrangements for check-in and breakfast the next morning. We stayed in the Victorian room which was decorated accordingly. The room is divided into a bedroom and living area. The living area had a fireplace, fridge, and coffeemaker and was spacious for two. The bedroom had a queen bed which was comfortable, yet the room barely fit the bed and was a bit tight to maneuver around. There was also another gas fireplace in the bedroom which was nice and an A/C wall unit though we did not use it because it was cool at night. The bathroom was clean, but small again so if you are very tall or of a larger frame it could be uncomfortable.
The breakfast is delivered to your room and consists of fresh fruit, a baked good, waffle/pancake/quiche/etc, and fresh OJ. The breakfast for filling enough to get the day started and tasted fresh. The menu changes daily and is a surprise as the innkeeper unaware of the following morning's menu. At checkout the innkeeper sat us down and went through various restaurant and activities available to us around SB. Please keep in mind since it was our first B&B and we have nothing to compare it to, but all in all the experience was great if you are looking for something differenct from the Holiday Inn type room.
Tip: In the off season there is a 25% discount on rooms. Which make the rooms a decent deal.
