Canary, a Kimpton Hotel

31 W Carrillo St, Santa Barbara 93101 - Map
"Lovely, cozy boutique hotel "
This place was just wonderful -- we loved the location (very close to restaurants and shopping on State Street), and the thoughtful touches everywhere. The room was cozy and homey, but not old-fashioned, with a beautiful and very comfortable canopy bed. The roof deck is amazing, and features a pool and hot tub, outdoor fireplace, lots of comfy seating (including seating away from the pool area), and a really great view. They have free bikes to borrow, coffee and tea in the lobby every morning, and a happy hour with wine nightly. It is not directly on the beach (it is a 1-mile walk or bike ride down State Street), but then none of the Santa Barbara hotels are. There's no on-site gym, but they give you access to a full-service gym next door. We would definitely return if we end up in the area.

"Great hotel, great location, great staff"
We had a fantastic time at Simpson House Inn. The national trust property is so well maintained and beautiful. We loved everything about it, the rooms, the food, the staff. The breakfasts were amazing and the afternoon teas of wine, homemade lemonade and appertizes are a must. We loved it here so much, we stayed an extra night. Even the beds are amazing, we had to purchase the pillows!!! Thank you so much to the beautiful staff who made our visit so memorable.

Chantico Inn

406 W Ojai Ave, Ojai 93023 - Map
"Extremely accommodating manager"
I have stayed twice at Chantico Inn, each time with a young grandchild. Both times the manager, Debbie, went way out of her way to make certain that the child and I were comfortable and all of our needs were met. Her friendliness and accommodations made our stay fun for the kids and relaxing for me. From the table and chairs on the patio where we picnicked, to the jacuzzi tub that made bath time an adventure, to the rustic antique furnishings, Chantico is a refreshing change from the usual, cookie-cutter motel room but still at a reasonable price.
