What hotel has a lilly pond with two ducks who look like they're wearing wigs. Serenity in the midst of central California wine country in Santa Barbara County. Very attentive staff, with years of experience. Worth a visit.

Really enjoyed my stay, hotel was great! A good location and 10-minute car ride away from downtown Santa Barbara. Staff (Leticia, Ozzie, and Sean) greeted us with warm smiles, were very helpful, friendly and they also gave us some delicious chocolate chip cookies! Room was spacious, clean and very comfortable! I would definitely recommend this hotel!

What a difference! The patio was small but we really enjoyed gazing over the lotus flowers and the pair of...
