"Charming"
Apparently this charming motel used to be a beach house where Charlie Chaplin would entertain his fellow stars in Hollywood's hey day. It has very nicely decorated rooms, a small pool and a jaccuzzi . It's very close to the 101 & Cabrillo Blvd is fairly close , so one can make it to the beach in Santa Barbara in 10 minutes. We were 4 people and got a quadruple room at the 2-nd floor and couldn't be more pleasantly surprised to see that the room has 2 bathrooms , making everybody's life easier.

"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.

"Nice, With a Few Minor Complaints"
We've been visiting Los Olivos and Santa Ynez for more than 10 years, but usually stay at the Santa Ynez Inn or the Marriott in Buellton--both of which we really like. The Fess Parker Inn is also nice--and a great location--but we were somewhat disappointed with the customer service as well as a few other minor details. Upon arrival, the receptionist at the front desk was on the phone and took a few minutes to even acknowledge us, which was a bit off-putting. When we got to our room, we discovered there was no bathtub, even though our room description said there would be one. They were nice about moving us to a different room, but even that bathroom had a tub/shower combo; it was small and not nearly as luxurious as the bathrooms we've enjoyed elsewhere (can you tell I like a good bathroom?! Probably not important to some...but it is to me.). The room was nice otherwise, with beautiful decor and plenty of space. That said, we were disappointed to discover that the pool was across the street from the main building. If you're hoping to use the pool or spa during your stay, you might want to request a room across the street (although I'm not sure if the rooms in that building are as nice). We had dinner and breakfast at Petros, located at the hotel, which was fine. The food was hit or miss. The breakfast was a lot better than the dinner. Overall, a good--but not great--stay.
