Experience a Romantic Santa Barbara Hotel

Lavender Inn by the Sea

Surrounded by fragrant gardens and just two blocks from Santa Barbara’s picturesque beaches and yacht harbor, Lavender Inn by the Sea is your gateway to a Pacific paradise. Here you’ll find an inviting collection of rooms and suites, modern facilities, and thoughtful amenities that enrich your stay.

Step inside and unwind with welcome champagne, daily breakfast, tranquil decor, plush bedding, and lavender-scented bath amenities. When you’re ready to explore the area, borrow one of our complimentary bikes to cruise the oceanfront bike path or visit the nearby Funk Zone, home to boutique tasting rooms, cafes, and galleries. Afterward, return back to the property for wine and cheese on the patio or milk and cookies before bed. Explore everything there is to enjoy here, and see why we’re one of the best boutique hotels in Santa Barbara.

He provided us with important information of the hotel amenities, Santa Barbara wine and local chocolates they provide, and local restaurants, which we all took advantage of. The hotel grounds and rooms were very clean and well kept

Had another wonderful time at the Lavender Inn by the Sea!! This is the second time I have stayed there and it definitely will not be the last! The service was awesome and the room was perfect. Walking distance to the pier.

Lavender Inn is about a 5 minutes walk to the marina/beach/boardwalk. I liked being able to walk to the ocean quickly.
