Not bad, was won over
I read a lot of bad reviews, but was booking a last mintue trip to Santa Barbara and kind of got stuck here. I know most places can boast location, but it must be said, it really is a great location for Avania Inn. I walked to the beach, to restaurants, to coffee, to my massage. The woman working the desk wasn't saccharine friendly, but she was very helpful. I had an issue with the internet and they called specifically to give me an update. Housekeeping also called me because I had left the "do not disturb sign" on the door and they wanted to know if I needed any service. I loved the mint and chocolate colors in the new rooms. Nice flat screen TV (which I didn't use), a fridge, great internet (the provider--COX--had an issue but Avania was great), and TALL showers (I'm 6 ft) which I loved. Breakfast sucked, but I never like hotel breakfast. I grabbed some fruit and left the cereal, waffles, toast and scones alone. but the other guests, especially the kids, were having a blast with the little buffet. It was expensive for a place that essentially felt like a motel, but the rooms were clean and comfy and service was was great.
