Avania Inn of Santa Barbara
Ranked #40 of 52 Hotels in Santa Barbara
Reviewed 18 October 2017

Lovely large room with a balcony overlooking the pool. Staff were efficient and friendly, breakfast was ok, the usual fayre, fresh waffle maker, toast cereals etc.... If I have one comment we would have liked more fresh fruit as there were only apples. Pool is small but enough for a dip, I think they struggle with keeping it clean throughout the day as it is surrounded by trees. Overall I would recommend it to friends for its price, free parking and position

Room Tip: We had a room on a higher floor and it worked well for us

Santa Barbara was so expensive so tried to get a decent motel at a good price, this was definitely a good choice, good location easy walk to beach, asked for a ground floor room and was given one we had a kingsize bed that was so comfortable, and it had a small balcony area with a table and chairs. The swimming pool area was quite small but the pool was lovely and warm.

The Inn was clean, close to the beach and a great place to spend a couple of days. Good breakfast, small pool & hot tub, free parking and a great location for the harbor and beach. Would definitely recommend and stay here again!

Stayed for a night on our roadtrip in beautiful Santa Barbara
5 min walk to the beach and harbour
Most restaurants are 10 mins walk away
It's a very pleasant walk !
Our room on the 3rd floor was great, nice big bed and a balcony
There's a pool that was in the shade when we arrived at 4pm
All the staff were polite and helpful
The breakfast was good, eggs sausage toast and pastries
It was great value for money
I would definitely recommend and return

We stayed at the Avania Inn for one night in September 2017.

For one night it's fine but the hotel has seen better days. The decor is quite shabby and dark but the location to Santa Barbara beach and main areas is excellent. The free complimentary breakfast is very poor however the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Rooms have a fridge, hairdryer and iron/ironing board but no safe.

Fine for one or two nights, but if you're staying in Santa Barbara longer then spend a little bit more money on somewhere better.

We stayed 4 nights, staff pleasant, electrics went one day, they were happy to help and sorted quickly.
Couldn't hope for a better location, easy for beach and state street.
Free parking and plenty of it.
Perfect for a few nights. Loved the pastries at breakfast!
Only negative... could do with a deep clean.
