Beautiful hotel, FREE champagne!

Would recommend Wed, Jul 2, 2014
The Lavender Inn by the Sea was a lovely place for my husband and me to stay. It's not directly on the beach, but it's not a far stroll. The outdoor pool and hot tub looked very nice, but we did not swim during our stay. There was complimentary wine in the lobby in the evening for happy hour, complimentary cookies and milk later at night, and a complimentary bottle of chilled champagne in the room! Delightful.

Very nice!

Would recommend Sat, May 17, 2014
Bottle of champagne in fridge, bottles of water, wine and cheese in afternoon, warm cookies in evening, great breakfast. Room was perfect. Stayed 1 night on a drive from San Diego to Napa but would definitely stay for a longer period when in town again. Very helpful in recommending restaurants and sites.

Tired by the Sea

Would not recommend Fri, Apr 4, 2014
This hotel was a little tired. Rooms need some updating and the beds squeaked when you rolled over. The grounds were pretty.

Attractions

Go see Solvang, CA. Fun Danish town in wine country. Beautiful drive.

Nice location

Would recommend Mon, Mar 18, 2013
Beautiful atomosphere. the grounds are lovely! The Inn is small - but nice, very cozy - great perks with wine and cheese hour and milk and cookies! Staff was very helpful, especially Danny. It is a short walk to the wharf and beach - where you can enjoy beach life and resturants - then you can get on a trolley that takes you downtown...really nice feature! Spend the day enjoying the shops and more delicious food, then trolley back - and walk to your hotel.

Remodeled motel

Would not recommend Sat, Feb 23, 2013
Very clean, older motel converted into present day inn. Outside and inside noise heard because of older construction. Outside light illuminated through door jam. Free wifi was a plus, and the remodeled bathroom was nice too.

Outstanding breakfast but otherwise is overrated

Would not recommend Tue, Jan 22, 2013
Before staying here I read lots of reviews. My expectations were high. The breakfast surpassed my expectations. The danish were high quality lots of selection including yogurt, bagels, muffins, fresh fruit and OJ. The room however was uncomfortabily small and dark. My guess is that the room was only about 300 square feet. The pictures shown appear much larger than the room is. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were overly big and sufficating of the type that leaves your head hot. The cheese and wine were nice but I expected the cheese to be thicker than wayfer thin. The hot cookies were good but a little hard and were only available in the lobby.

Cozy family stay or romantic getaway

Would recommend Thu, Jan 3, 2013
Part of a three B&B group, across a small street from the main inn Brisas del Mar, this adorable inn offers coziness and comfort. The amenities are actually more than enough. Rent bikes for free. Check out dvds. Frolic in the pool and spa at each hotel. Dig in to the continental breakfast that offers parfaits, hardboiled eggs, fresh-cut fruit, etc. They also keep you satisfied with wine and cheese and milk and cookies, while you wait for dinner. It's all so thoughtful, you can't help but feel at ease. The staff is friendly and accomodating, too. The location is a little bit west of most other B&Bs, but it was easily walkable from the Amtrak station (~5 minutes), and only 4-5 blocks away from State St/Stearns Wharf.

Time saver

take a short walk (4-5 blocks) east to State St, and take the electric bus (50cents a person) from Stearns Wharf or the Amtrak station to the larger shopping/eating destinations up north. You can hop off at one of the convenient stops, if you want to check out a boutique/store/restaurant along the way.
