    We enjoyed our stay at the Cheshire Inn, the Alice room. When we first arrived the heater had been left on so it was quite toasty (and not cold) but we were able to remedy the situation. This is a beautiful room with a King sized bed, a balcony and small bathroom (shower/toilet). The Inn is in great condition. Our stay was quiet and comfortable. The door code was challenging but other guests were usually inside to let you in! Wine at 5 pm includes light fare as well, like a fruit and cheese tray. Breatkfast had plenty of light offerings and something unique each morning.They do have some private parking if you are early. Santa Barbara is very walkable so once we parked, we left our vehicle and strolled to our destinations.
