Santa Barbara by bicycle

The hotel is in a quiet Santa Barbara neighborhood, 2 blocks from the beach and harbor. Guests can borrow a bike for free, and ride to State Street or Stearns Wharf in 5 minutes. The area is rich in local history, from the Maritime Museum to the Carriage and Western Art Museum, a minute's walk away.

Bedtime milk and cookies

Guests can start their day with a free breakfast on the patio, ease into the evening with free wine and cheese by the fire, and enjoy free milk and cookies before bed. The outdoor pool and hot tub are ideal for unwinding. WiFi and parking are also free, so it's easy to leave the car and bike around instead.

Welcome bottle of bubbly

Guests of Lavender Inn by the Sea are welcomed with a free bottle of champagne, perhaps best enjoyed while admiring the restful garden view. In each of the 23 rooms, Old World charm is supplemented by free WiFi and flat-screen TVs. Cozy down duvets help to ensure a good night's rest.
