This is a truly excellent hotel. Excellent mostly due to the amazing and personal service we received from ALL of the staff, particularly the two men who checked us in on the first day.
There is nice, pleasant small talk with the hotel staff and then there is the Spanish Garden Inn, they were genuinely thoughtful, interested and made us feel welcome the very second we arrived.
In the first hour of being in the hotel, they helped us with our bags, showed us to our room, served us wine and even booked two restaurants for us after first being able to show us the menu from every place in town.
We sat by the fire and read magazines about the local area. Once the restaurant reservations had been confirmed they printed out the details with turn by turn directions from the hotel to each place. What fantastic service!
The room itself was exactly what we wanted from Santa Barbara - it felt very "Spanish" style, with red tiled floor, white walls and a fireplace. The room also had a private patio and the bathroom had a very deep soaking tub which was great. The bathroom products were Molton Brown and just lovely.
Breakfast was great, good teas and coffee and an interesting mix of fruits, cereals and muffins. I also had delicious hot quiche every morning.
Other nice touches from this hotel were the fire pit in the courtyard, bikes to borrow and free lemonade in the lobby.
It's not cheap but this is in an exceptionally great hotel. We wish we had booked a few more nights.
