We stayed at the Canary this past week and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The location is just off State Street, the main street with stores/restaurants. It was located about 1/2 mile from the beach but the hotel offers complimentary beach cruisers or there is a shuttle for 50 cents that runs from the wharf if you don't want to walk. There did not seem to be any higher end hotels along the beach.
The rooftop pool was great and offered amazing views of the Santa Ynez mountains and the ocean. There is also a fireplace up there surrounded by comfortable couches and lounge chairs.
The front desk and valet staff were really the highlight of our stay. They were so friendly and gave great ideas/advice on restaurants and what to do. The hotel also has great touches such as complimentary wine in the evening and yoga mats in the rooms.
