The Lavender Inn was everything we were looking for. Conveniant parking, comfortable rooms, nice continental breakfast and even though it isn't right in the center of Santa Barbara, it is within walking distance to the pier and State street. We would stay at the Lavender Inn again.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and the wine they served in the evening was quite good. Also, this hotel is a short walk from the train station.

Comfort and location

Lovely, comfortable room, great location, super friendly and helpful staff. We especially loved the afternoon wine and cheese, evening cookies, and nice little breakfast. They also have free DVDs you can check out. Very close to the pier and town.

The 'deluxe' breakfast was anything but! A small sitting area with no tables other than outside on the roadside, and limited choice by comparison to other cheaper places. Distinct lack of electrical sockets in the room for the modern day traveller.
Clean, comfortable, free parking and close to harbour. Quiet. Nice swimming pool.

Breakfast is really poor! Plus there's only a few (couch) seats indoors, otherwise you have to sit on a balcony by the street, or by your room… if you find a spot! It would have been better with no breakfast and cheaper!

Although more of a travel lodge it was lovely. Beautiful rooms and bathroom, spotlessly clean, nice pool and very good breakfast. All staff were lovely and very helpful. Would recommend it.

the staff was very friendly. They had wine and cheese in the evening and continental breakfast in the morning. The hotel is slightly old but seems to be well kept.

Nothing. We liked everything
We loved the friendly staff. Breakfast was really good and the wine and cheese in early evening, cookies and milk later made us feel like we were home. Brenda St. John's Newfoundland Canada

Will request 1st floor room next time as there is no elevator.
The amenities were great - wine and cheese in the afternoon was a real treat. Very convenient to visit our granddaughter at UCSB and convenient to town. Would stay there again and reccommend it to friends.

WiFi keeps disconnecting. Room was comfortable and clean, but a bit dated.
Continental breakfast, wine/cheese happy hour, quiet, champagne upon arrival.

It was the hotel/motel that offered the worst cost-benefit throughout our trip
The breakfast is included in the price which is important for a family traveling with three persons

Big disappointment view only of Ugly shady looking homes and unsafe park across street. Had to drive to get to ocean scenery. Very busy street & lots of road work.
The rooms were nice & comfy. Quiet at night, enjoyed the wine & cheese, & continental breakfast in very small side room near door entrance. The staff was super nice!

It was our last night in the USA and we were able to relax at night and in the morning we rode bikes along the water front and had a very casual day before our flight back to Australia. Very well located.
