Very nice hotel!

Would recommend Sat, Jun 26, 2010
This is a very charming hotel with a great location. The price was much better than most hotels in the area. It was very convenient for walking around downtown. The hot tub was very nice. The hotel has a continental breakfast and sets out wine and cheese in the afternoon and cookies and milk in the evening. It was a very enjoyable stay.

Comfortable and relaxing

Would recommend Sat, Apr 24, 2010
We enjoyed walking at the beach (2 blocks away), riding a surrey at the beach and visiting State Street for shopping and eating. It was a relaxing get-away that fit our "play it by ear" plans to a tee.

Dining

The restaurants on State Street are unusual and quaint. Be prepared to spend a little extra.

Charming and classy

Would recommend Mon, Feb 1, 2010
I was welcomed at check-in and felt comfortable and secure in the surroundings. The rooms were immaculate with classy amenities. There was wine and cheese at 4:30 and later warm cookies; as well as a well-stocked breakfast. Only two blocks from the beach.

Money saver

For the price, I thought it rated extremely high.

Review of Colonial Beach Inn

Would recommend Sat, Jan 23, 2010
We managed to arrive in Santa Barbara the wettest week of the year, but several things about the hotel made our stay more pleasant. The lobby with its cheerful fireplace, wine and cheese reception every afternoon, and coffee on demand, as well as the exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, made this vacation trip much nicer than it would otherwise have been. We really liked being two blocks from the beach and within walking distance (3 short blocks)of a decent place for breakfast, the historic Sambo's on Carrillo.

Dining

Sambo's for breakfast.

Trying too be nice

Would recommend Mon, Oct 12, 2009
The place is not bad. It can be noisy if one leaves the window open. This place has its own charm, the amenities were nice and the staff very friendly and helpful. A bit pricey like everything else in Santa Barbara. Some of the people walking down the street are questionable. A nice place to stay without a Hotel atmosphere.

Shopping hint

If you don't mind walking the restaurants are close and shopping is a bit farther but worth it. Any way you can cut it we still had Fun.

Santa Barbara

Would recommend Sun, Oct 11, 2009
I would return to this hotel. Stay here rather than one of the big chain hotels. Refurbished, modern, excellent 'continental' type free breakfast, free internet, free parking & although hotel is on street with thro' traffice is relatively quiet in rooms. Can walk to restaraunts.

Very nice Stay

Would recommend Thu, Sep 3, 2009
We were there on business, the hotel was very nice and walking distance to restaurants. We enjoyed the breakfast, cheese/wine and milk/cookies. Parking is a little tight but we managed to get in the lot every night.
