“I "Love this place" & Samantha the Manager is THE BEST”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

I have been staying at the Avania Inn for almost 2 -years now...the rooms are great and I feel at home with Samantha...she is great and one of the reasons I return...she is always accomodating and friendly always willing to assist with whatever you may need. The rooms are clean, well decorated and oh so comfortable...big fluffy pillows and very comfortable beds.
Mercedes prepares a great complimentry breakfast every morning... always on time with the best coffee...
I'm going back in a few weeks and look forward to my stay. I recommend the Avania Inn to anyone for business or just a pleasurable stay...short walk to the beach...

Room Tip: I love the "ground floor"...that's what I ask for and that's what I get...it's...

What can I say?
The room was perfect, clean, and we had a king size bed, which was wonderful especially after the 18 hr trip we had.
The owner ( I think )was soo kind, and helpful, thanks for that, you really made our first day in CA :-)
Oh and the breakfast, exceptionally good comparing to other motels we stayed in the US so far.
Wide selection and everything.
Location is also good, 15 walk to top of State street.

We stayed for 3 days and had a wonderful time! The location is excellent, walking distance to the beach and downtown Santa Barbara.
The rooms are clean and nicely decorated, comfy bed and lots of pillows. Their complimentary breakfast was great compared to what other hotels offer these days.
The service was excellent, friendly and attentive.
Overall a great value for your money. We are already planning our next trip and will definitely stay there again!!

We stayed for one night whilst passing through Santa Barbara.

The Motel was excellent, the rooms were modern and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the shower good. The complimentary breakfast was also ver good.

The location allowed us to walk to all the main sights in Santa Barbara.

Overall a great motel, clean, modern and in a good location.

This hotel is perfect about location. Just across the beach. The hotel itself is really small, but the rooms have space enough to move and be comfortable. The bathroom is extremely small, but the sink is outside. It has a small kitchen area and complimentary wifi at a really good speed.
Includes a basic but really good breakfast (waffles!) and parking.
It is a good place to stay a couple of days or just for sleep. The price is OK too, considering the others hotels around, much more pricier. The only problem we had was the noise. Our bedroom faced the interior parking, and during all night we heard the people laughing, screaming o talking really loud. If you stay here, try to book a room facing the street. I can assure you that it will be much more quiet.

Upon arrival we were greeting by, Samautle with a smile. She saw that there would be 4 of us and upgraded us to a larger room she had available at no extra charge.
We chose Avania because we were looking for a room relatively close to the beach and services at an affordable price.
The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, no sags and we found plenty of towels for our group of 4. Usually when you have a small group you have to ask for them. There was sufficient free parking as well.
Breakfast was nice for a continental style and included with room, fresh scrambled eggs, choices of bread or muffins and fresh fruit, coffee and juices.
Our gathering is an annual event so we plan to stay there again next year.
