First the positives - very nice amenities (continental breakfast, wine and cheese, cookies and milk, champagne in the room), very friendly and helpful staff and excellent location for what we wanted to do in Santa Barbara. The parking lot is small, but we always found a spot, but then we noticed that it was only on the last day that the 'no vacancy' light was on so perhaps not full on the other days. The negatives - the bed was either very old or very soft or both. When one of us tried to turn over, we landed smack in the ditch in the middle of the bed. Any movement in the bed or getting in or out of it elicited squeaks loud enough to wake the other person. :-( Seriously doubt we'd ever return.
- 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
