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.
