The staff at the Inn was very helpful in helping me make my reservation and I got a executive king room for well under the published rates. The room was exactly as advertised, the bed was comfy, the tub was luxurious, the bath products are incredible, the patio was great to sit out on and the services was wonderful. The breakfast each day was plentiful and delicious and the cookies in the lobby were much appreciated! :)
I wondered if the location would be "too far" off of state street and we found it a very comfortable walk both to Paseo Nuevo Mall and to The Arlington Theatre. It's quiet and the off street parking garage is a treat! We never moved the car for our entire stay!
This is not a hotel for business travelers if you plan to use their internet hookups.. they do not have wi-fi and their connection was on the top of the dresser, in a lamp actaully with no space to work. I wasn't irritated about not hooking up my laptop but it could have been a problem if I was planning to use it for more than restaurant reviews and directions.
Also, although they brag about their "movie library" the selection is small and less than desireable. If you plan to stay in and watch a movie, as we did after a long day and late flight, bring your own!
There is nothing wrong with this ittle hotel... you'll love it!
I've been trying out various hotels in Santa Barbara for about the past three years and i'd say that this is the nicest at this price point. A Step up, of course, would be Bacara, Four Seasons and others that are all away from the downtown and at significantly higher price points.
