50th Wedding Anniversary

5 on July 15, 2014

We had a very busy weekend in Santa Barbara. Bath Street Inn made our stay and anniversary that more special. We never expected to have this opportunity to celebrate our anniversary like this. It was one of most wonderful events in our lives thanks to Marie, Deborah, Vickie and the Staff. Everything was just so wonderful - the accommodations, the food (was just out of this world). We hope we'll be able to come back and enjoy this experience all over again and that others will come and enjoy themselves the way we did. Again Thank You so very much!!!!!

Great place to stay!

Vicki was especially friendly and helpful. Great service and food. Highly recommended! Easy walking distance to everything downtown and State Street.

very hospitable

Service was most hospitable. Lovely outside patio for breakfast. Enjoyable hosts. Convenient to down town Santa Barbara.

College visit

5 on April 09, 2013

We stayed at the Bath St. Inn numerous times during our two son's 7 years of college at UCSB. We were NEVER disappointed. They are very accomodating and the food was EXCELLECT. We liked eating by ourselves at our own table. Not every B&B has that!

Perfect location, very nice place

We spent a night at the Bath street inn while touring through South California last summer. The particular thing about this inn is that you feel that you’re staying in a family house yet it’s very professional. Our room, the Jaracanda, located on the back of the house, had a private access which is very convenient . Nice room, spacious bathroom, very clean. The inn is perfectly located in a quiet neighborhood just a few blocks away from Santa Barbara’s main street and all the shops. Delicious breakfast, perfect service. We recommend it!

Loved the room!

This b&b is really nice! People were very welcoming and they have awesome homemade cakes available all day. The room my husband and I stayed in was really cool, we had a small balcony and an awesome tub.

Geat, quiet escape...

The Bath St Inn is a lovely place to step back in time to when life moved a little slower. The rooms are lovely - we were in the Rose Room. There is an extensive video library for guest's viewing enjoyment. Afternoon tea, evening wine n cheese and breakfasts are delicious and thoughtfully prepared on site. There are even some delicious gluten-free baked treats available! I bake and I know making gluten free taste that good is not easy! The location is handy for accessing State St Shops on foot. Our hosts were warm, friendly and quite knowledgeable about the area. We'll be back!

comfortable and convenient

Stayed in the Tiffany room on the third floor; weather was cool so temps were fine. It was quiet, clean and beds were comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious; tea and wine served afternoons provided opportunity to relax and talk with other guests and the inn keepers, which was fun. Very convenient location, was able to walk to everything.

Great Vacation, Adorable B&B

4.6 on November 29, 2011

We stayed in the Wedgewood Room at the very top. It was everything you could want in a B & B room. I wish I would have thought to not bring a blow dryer, shampoo, and a few other things because they had everything there. Breakfast was great, unlimited organic coffee, and the innkeepers are excellent sources of Santa Barbara information. My only complaint was it was hard to eat very healthy here. Of course, you are on vacation, but maybe lighter options in food choices at least at breakfast. Also, the wine hour is a bit of a let down. One carafe of wine for everyone and sandwich quality cheese. My husband and I wouldn't have rushed to the wine social hour had we known it would be so minor. We stay in a lot of B and B's around the area, but over all this was a memorable one.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for those kind words; I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Couple of quick comments for clarification - we actually have 2 or 3 carafes of wine chilled in our refrigerator at all times so we can bring another to the table at a moment's notice; I'm sorry if we didn't notice that the carafe needed to be replaced or if no-one asked for more wine. Our cheeses are all very good quality: Danish Harvarti, Jarlsberg Swiss and Tillamook Cheddar and Pepper Jack. For those with dietary concerns, we really do go out of our way to help folks get what they need for breakfast; but we do need to know what that is, and in some cases, we need to know in advance (diabetic diet, limited salt, gluten and/or lactose free, vegan) For lighter eaters we are happy to scramble egg whites, serve half portions, omit the fruit or granola, serve sugar free yogurt etc. We'll be happy to accommodate your particular tastes next time. Hope this helps. All the best,

Okay...But will stay elsewhere

3.0 on October 21, 2011

We stayed here on a recent visit to Santa Barbara. I have to say it was just okay, and I would probably stay somewhere else on our next visit. The Summer room was "okay", got a little warm since it was on the top floor, the Bathroom was very small and no where to put our things. We found 2 "dirty" socks that the cleaning lady must have missed from the previous guest. The Breakfast was good...the first morning, my hubby left hungry (not enough) and the 2nd morning the food was very good. Our window in the room was broken when we arrived, & the Innkeeper offered another room or 10% off. Overall if I had a choice, I would stay elsewhere.

Innkeeper Response
I'm so sorry that your visit was not all you and we hoped it would be. Our innkeepers check the housekeepers' work before we check guests in to the rooms, but obviously we didn’t catch the problem. I do apologize. The window was broken in a windstorm during the previous guests' stay a day and a half before. Although only part of one pane (of eight) was broken, the frame was damaged beyond repair and so we could not get a glazier in to fix it. We make every effort to address maintenance concerns in a timely manner. Our windows are custom made and take 4 to 6 weeks to make and ship to us. We clarified this when we offered a complimentary upgrade. The bathroom is small and we are now working on some ideas for additional shelf space. Thank you for giving us your feedback on this. We have a very large water-cooled fan just outside that room for any of our third floor guests to take to their rooms and use in addition to the room fans; it works a treat. We do make a point of asking folks if they have had enough to eat at breakfast. We always have more of our home made granola, usually have extra fruit and muffins or biscuits and sometimes have additional entree portions. If we are serving a casserole dish that has been cut into exact portions for the guests we have, we are happy to scramble some eggs as a second helping. We just need to know. Thank you for helping us to improve our guest services; we appreciate the feedback.
