We have been going here for years and love it. The hotel I always super clean and quiet. This trip stood out though because of Micheal and his amazing service! Our room had a busted HDMI cord and he not only trouble shot the issue but ran to find us a cable immediately. It was a non important issue that we wouldn’t have minded waiting but he dropped everything to help us and make sure our room was just perfect. He really has a way of treating each guest like they are very important and special! Can’t wait to stay again in a month or so!
We loved our stay the Avania Inn! Easy check-in and amazing customer service by Glory and her staff. Super beautiful room, cozy bed and all the amenities. Breakfast spread in their spacious lobby was delicious and can't beat the location. We'll for sure stay again on our next visit! Can't recommend it highly enough. A+++
We've stayed at the Avania Inn before and it was great! However, this time we booked through Chase rewards and weren't advised the hotel was under renovation. That's fine, it was obvious on arrival because the parking lot is full of construction materials, debris and dumpsters. What they didn't tell us on check in was that the rooms are also under renovation. We had no closet, no towel hooks and no hangers. Ok maybe they just forgot something. The worst part? The faucet didn't reach the sink. So if you attempted to turn on the water, it flooded the counter and all of your stuff. We notified the front desk immediately and the clerk said "Oh yeah, all the new rooms are like that. We are waiting on new faucets." Ridiculous! During a pandemic, we could not even wash our hands in the room. This is not at all what you expect for a $200+ night hotel.…
So glad we found this hotel. Reasonably priced, heated pool, close to the beach & town. Rooms have large private balconies, ours had a great mountain view. Staff are incredibly kind & accommodating. Breakfast has lots of choices. Location is walkable to everything! They're renovating, we didn't notice noise while we were here.
Took my family with young children and older parents and we all had a wonderful experience. Customer service was stellar, free breakfast and being right across from the beach was definitely a plus. Michael, Jake and staff were super nice, accommodating and readily available when needed. They are currently renovating parts of the hotel. We were able to stay at one of the newly renovated rooms and the staff shared they will be working on all the rooms, lobby and pool area. Pretty excited for when they are done and will definitely bring back the family.
First and foremost I would like to say thank you for the Avania Inn for being such great people when I come here. Everytime I come here I am always greeted by skiles and people wanting to have conversation and talk. Michael at the front desk always has a great presence and always is fun to talk to. Great front desk worker and know.im in good hands when he checks me in. Jamaru and Samantha at the breakfast area are always on top of everything at breakfast and are very hardworking. This team here is one of a kind and trust me when I say you want to stay here when visiting Santa Barbara. Thank you again Avania Inn.
The staff was very accommodating. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom had excellent lighting. Close to the beach and where the rest of our family stayed. Edith and Michael work the front desk and they were very helpful as well
The staff at Avania are amazing. When one of the staff heard us discussing a walk to the beach she came over and made suggestions as to the best areas we should explore when we were on our walk. When we arrived we were given 2 bottles of water and cookies For some reason our room had a very musty smell to it We opened the windows to try to air it out but even after leaving the room for a few hours it still had the smell. The hotel is undergoing major renovations. I think our room was one that was recently renovated but it is still very basic. It was clean and we did enjoy a good nights sleep. Breakfast is one of the better continental breakfasts that we’ve enjoyed as they had hot items available. It is in a great location, very close to the beach.
Great place to stay. Michael offered great suggestions. Edith And Samatha were friendly and helpful during the breakfast hour. Good location to get to the wharf and state street. We were close to the activities presented by Healing Justice Santa Barbra.
We were first given a room on 1st floor which we were not happy about- we requested a change which Michael gladly did and gave us a nice room on the 3rd floor. The breakfast was very good and so were all the amenities. Michael our host was exceptionally good.
