Perfect place to spend my birthday evening

Would recommend Thu, Nov 29, 2012
Such a magical hotel, reminds me of grandma's house. :-) The beds couldn't be any more comfortable, the location is near the beach, and they even let me check out at 2! Great amenities such as milk and cookies in the lobby, wine and cheese hour, free DVD rentals (and they have an awesome selection!), free beach cruiser rentals, etc. I will definitely be coming back :-)

Dining

You have to take the time to eat at Arlington Tavern, a short drive away. The food is absolutely unbeatable! So good!

Pleasant accommodations in Santa Barbara

Would recommend Sun, Sep 30, 2012
Upon arriving we were a bit surprised by the location of this hotel being on such a bustling street and having virtually no shield from the street noise. However, the room was nice, with a wonderful shower and bathroom. The complimentary bottle of sparkling wine was tasty, and though the street is busy, the location itself leaves little to complain about being that it is so close to the beach, wharf, and plentiful dining options.

Dining

The Brewhouse, while noisy, serves very good dinners and is located just a couple of blocks from the inn.

Concert Getaway

Would recommend Tue, Sep 25, 2012
Perfect place to stay and get out of L.A. Wine and cheese, milk and cookies, but most of all, a very clean hotel. Will stay again next time in town.

Dining

The Brewhouse is a great place to eat right around the corner on Montecito St. You can even bring your dog and sit outside!

Great Place

Would recommend Mon, Jun 18, 2012
Lavender Inn by the sea was a great spot. Specifically when you compare them to the competition in the same price range I was very happy. The beach cruiser bikes were great the bed was very comfy and the overall feel was nice. Do not be deterred by the negative reviews. I should have wasted less time reading all the reviews and just booked. Enjoy Santa Barbara.

Entertainment hint

Borrow the free Beach cruisers and ride along the beach. It is a short but rewarding lazy ride and it is at no cost. I will be doing it again.

Amazing stay in Santa Barbara

Would recommend Tue, Feb 21, 2012
The hotel is very cute and a great location. We rented a car, which you will most likely need, but could drive anywhere in 5 min. Close walk to the beach. 5 min drive to State St and all the restaurants. The hotel had a nice pool and hot tub, the breakfast was average - it was continental. Wine and cheese hour, as well as cookie and milk hour were great! The staff were mostly very friendly. The bed was super soft and comfy, and the room was great! We loved it here and would definitely come back!

Dining

Julienne is an AMAZING restaurant, has a great tasting menu. Would recommend for a special occasion, make reservations! It's $$$!

relaxful retreat

Would recommend Tue, Nov 15, 2011
From walking in the door to the smell of pastries and fresh hot coffee until the time we left four days later, it was like going to a friend's home. There was a delightful wine and chesse and fruit reception each eveing and then at bedtime, there were hot baked cookies and cold milk! Yum...it doesn't get much better than that. We were also extremely delighted when we got to our room and they had a surprize awaiting us...a cold bottle of champagne in our refridgerator. We definitely would and will recommend the Lavender Inn to anyone who asks!

Money saver

Rent a car. there are so many places to go and things to see. It is much more ecomonical than using a taxi service.

Comfortable & Great Locale

Would recommend Mon, Sep 19, 2011
We stayed mid-week for a one-night honeymoon. Nicely appointed room. Great staff who accommodated our requests to store our surfboards & bicycles (they do have bike loaners as well). The only drawback was that the walls were a little thin and we hear our neighbors. However, there were quite a few vacancies, so it was pretty quiet otherwise.

Attractions

Great restaurants, shops, beach & wine tasting nearby. a medium walk but better to bicycle>

Lavender inn by the "STREET"

Would not recommend Fri, Sep 16, 2011
We were expecting a little more. On line photos are a bit deceiving. The pool is right on the street. No privacy. Hot tub was right infront of a parking space. Room was small. Bathroom was very nice.

Shopping hint

Be sure grab a rental bike to get to downtown shopping .
