A Great Hide-A-Way Downtown Santa Barbara

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 14, 2005

For Valentine's Day we headed up the coast to The Glenborough Inn Bed & Breakfast. Built in the "Craftsman" style, this charming B & B was delightful.

We stayed in the "La Grande Suite." It consisted of a parlour with a fireplace, and the bedroom with yet another fireplace and a four poster bed.

This is a romantic get away, although there is a suite on the properties that can accomodate a family or several people traveling together. The other rooms and suites were very pretty and ranged in price from $134.00 to $319.00 USD.

This B & B is perfect for those people who avoid going to them because of early morning breakfast with other guests. Breakfast is served in the privacy of your room! Pick a time, put on your spa robes and right on time a delicious breakfast is at your door. But for those who wish to, you can choose communal dining, I just wouldn't expect too many guests.

One note though, several of the lamps did not have working bulbs and the seal around the window air conditioning unit leaked cold air. These are little things I think should have been taken care of, especially given the cost of the room.

Unique Quality: The very fact that this B & B is spread out over Bath Street is great. Our suite was actually down the street from the main house, this gave us a wonderful sense of seclusion.

We had a coffepot, refrigerator, coffee, tea and hot chocolate stocked in our room. Breakfast was delivered directly to our room at the time we specified. The telephone in the room provided free local calls so we were able to access the internet for no charge (we used our dial up service).

The bathrobes were made from microfiber and were terry-cloth lined; light weight yet very warm. This was needed because we had to walk down the street (2 doors) to the main house to use the jacuzzi.

We took a jacuzzi under the stars with the lovely fragrance of night blooming jasmine in the air. The jacuzzi was enclosed behind a redwood fence for privacy. I liked the fact that there was a signup sheet for its use so there were no conflicts.

All in all the stay was relaxing and the setting quite charming. The inn does offer discounted room rates Sunday through Thursday provided there are no holidays or speical events booked.

Directions: Exit Carrillo from the 101 freeway, head East to Bath Street, head North. The Inn is on the left hand side between Victoria and Sola
