Lounge :: Hotel Hunt / Santa Barbara

















I wanted to try a hotel I'd never been to, so Elizabeth and I decided on Avania Inn for our short stay in SB. Though we loved the decor, we ended up leaving due to poor customer service and no electricity. After a journey that seemed Biblical, we ended up at Castillo Inn, where I'd stayed twice before. As fate would have it -- or, according to Liz, beautiful coincidence -- it was the last room available. Even though they had a two-night minimum, we were allowed to stay only one, and the owner matched the cheaper rate we were going to pay at our original inn. A delicious breakfast on the balcony was the final touch on what turned out to be a wonderful experience!
