Friendly staff but the hotel is very dated. Dark bedrooms and ancient bathrooms but clean. Yellow towels which is a bit awful. TV microwave coffee machine hairdryer iron air con are all available. Free parking and large rooms but the space could be utilised better

Arrived early and they were happy to let me park and go for a walk until the room was ready. Very clean and a little more updated than some I have stayed in along the coast. Breakfast was nice, with quite a good selection. The reception lady wasc very nice (sorry didn't get her name)

We enjoyed staying at Avania. The room was always clean, we had balcony with the view to the mountains on one side (3rd floor). The breakfast was really good. Huge parking place. The location is perfect - quiet, 5 min walking distance to the beach, close to the downtown. The staff was always nice and smiling. Perfect, short stay in...

We stayed here for one night as a break in journey. It was very clean and comfortable with a very good breakfast which was included in the price. The staff were quite friendly and gave us directions to go for dinner. Although the room was on the top floor so we did not get any noise from the other guests,...

Can't believe this motel actually cost almost $300 per night. The décor is awful. We were greeted by someone at the front desk who had a mouthful of food. The air conditioner was a wall unit that didn't throw off cold air. We had it set at 59 and it was still hot. Only redeeming quality was cleanliness. Location was...

I had to work in Santa Barbara this past weekend and I needed to find an inexpensive spot to rest. Avania Inn came up in my search queries and I took a chance on it! The rooms are on three level, limited parking spots, and there's a small pool for use! Awesome plus, free breakfast! They have scones, eggs, pastries...

Firstly, anyone that has booked this through booking.com will be surprised when they arrive that the building looks nothing like it does on the photos. That said, its no offensive in anyway, its just not what you expect. The location is great - a short walk down to the front. None of the rooms have a particularly spectacular view, they...

I had the best nights sleep I have ever had in this hotel, we only stayed here for one night whilst we were passing through. The location is ideal, the room was very spacious, the facilities were excellent and the choice at breakfast was vast. Parking is although everything you need is in walking distance.

The room was very modern. The bed was massive. We had a balcony which was also massive with a table and chairs to catch the late afternoon Ray's. Nice to have a room and a desperate bathroom. Breakfast was also good. Lots of choice
