beauty nestled into the hillsideThis resort is very gracious and lovely. The gardens and grounds are park like. If you have the good fortune to have a room with a view of the ocean (there aren't many), it's quite a site!!! The complimentary shuttle into Downtown SB is a huge plus - convenient and easy to access. The drivers are ...

However, we went over President's ...

Lovely staff but amenities lackingThe exterior of the Santa Barbara Inn is gorgeous and the staff (front desk, valet, breakfast waitstaff) were all professional, friendly, helpful and engaging. And the location is superb! Our major complaint with the Inn is that for a facility promoting itself in the luxury category and charging ...

It's okayWhen you go to a small town you can't expect to find luxury. We always like to stay in nice hotels especially because I have kids. In Solvang there is a lot of small hotels and a few BB so you will get about the same anywhere you go. I stayed here because it was the most decent and clean hotel I ...
