This cute little motor inn just 2 blocks from the beach has so many lovely amenities that we were sorry to have to leave after just one night! But the bed was so uncomfortable that we just couldn't take another night! I do want to say that, although we had booked 2 nights, the hotel was extremely accommodating about letting us out of the second night. So... if you don't mind a very soft bed (no support), then stay here because you'll enjoy the free bicycles, simple but adequate wine reception, the nice continental breakfast, the extensive DVD collection, intimate Jacuzzi and the close proximity to beachfront restaurants. If this property would only update their beds, we would return in a minute.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Along a sweep of California coastline reminiscent of the Côte d'Azur, guests can relax amid the soothing scent of lavender and soft ocean breezes at the Lavender Inn by the Sea. French-inspired paintings adorn the walls, lavender bouquets grace each room, and sunlight shimmers off the waters of the pool. Lavender Inn by the Sea's plush guest rooms feature pillow-top beds, down duvets, lavender-scented bath amenities, and a welcome bottle of Champagne. Savor a deluxe continental breakfast on the sunny patio, wine and cheese by the fire, and milk and cookies before bed. Surrounded by beautiful lavender gardens, the Lavender Inn by the Sea is just two blocks from Santa Barbara's picturesque beaches and yacht harbor. Stearns Wharf, the oceanfront bike path, and downtown shops and restaurants are all within walking distance. Golf courses, wineries, and the Santa Barbara Mission are just a short drive away. ... more less
