We were driving through Santa Barbra and decided to stay for a few nights and just happened upon this little jewel. It is a quaint inn that pampers guests with great little touches. Just a few examples include... Champagne in the fridge, robes in the closet, to cookies and milk! What a wonderful experience. I wish I could bring them along on every trip I take. Highly recommended.

Great location to the beach and State Street. Staff friendly, appreciated the water and Champagne in the fridge. Also nice touch offering the wine and cheese and cookies and milk every day to guests.
Lots of space in the room and easy parking. Towels available for the sun loungers at the pool. Also loved the little lavender bags on the pillows.
Would definitely return if visiting Santa Barbara again.

Lovely place. Welcoming host. Cheese and wine. Cookies and milk daily included. Also champagne bottle on arrival. Pool was good size (next to road but no problem). Was so good we booked an extra night.

Free parking. Car was just out of our door 20m away. Amazing

Easy walk to everywhere

Chose this hotel for the reviews and proximity to the beach and pier without the beach and pier price.
The property is clean and well maintained and the staff from the front desk to the maintenance crew are fantastic. They offer a wine and cheese social ( and Cookies! ) in the evening and it offered an opportunity to meet fellow guest and share the days stories.
The room was comfortable and quiet despite being on a main street. The bed was supple and the room contained a small fridge , a table and two chairs and an office table with chair.
The hotel's' sister property Casa La Brisas directly across the road offered free beach cruiser bike use and dvd for the in room dvd players.
The 3 minute bike ride to the beach and bike paths was fun and therapeutic. Our bike baskets filled with complimentary bottled waters and a picked up snack we wound our way down to Butterfly beach and locked our bikes up (locks provided) spent a few hours on the beach and made our way back to the Lavender.
Fantastic stay , thank you !

Room Tip: All rooms face the same main street
