Our sleek, modern, micro guest rooms feature comfy beds with premium linens, usb-media-ready tvs, ergonomic workstations, space-efficient storage, wet bathrooms with spa-inspired showers with 8 ft. high showerheads and Aveda products, and yet the smaller footprint characteristic of environmentally friendly lodging.
Select rooms have private outdoor gardens and mountain views.
Facilities include a business center, fitness studio, boardroom, art library, open-air lounges, and a contemporary art gallery in partnership with the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation with free Wifi throughout the hotel.
The front desk clerk was the most accommodating, he showed us the king bed room with garden patio, upstairs king bed room, and patio area.
This boutique hotel is quaint for two, EUROPEAN rooms are smaller than the rooms at this hotel, and I loved the innovative artistic concepts at this hotel.
The hallways display local artwork, therefore the hotel offers a feast for the eyes, and romantic coziness to read and bask in the ocean air.
This hotel is pet friendly (another plus), and walking distance to the beach and pier ( less than a block).
Can’t beat this location. Next to Finney’s, the funk zone and within walking distance to the beach.
This hotel is pet friendly and clean. It is super small, think NY small or SF small. The rooms fit a bed and nothing else.
There is no elevator, poor hubs got his workout carrying our luggage upstairs.
The showers or bathrooms are at most a two butt room, but a challenge for two women sharing the same resources (hair dryer, mirror, and sink area) so one will need to get ready in the room area (not a deal breaker for us since we had to get ready in European bathrooms that were smaller)
Hip place in a perfect location near the water and on the main street downtown.
Very clean with comfortable nooks throughout the hotel to hang out indoors and outdoors. No elevator, can be a problem with heavy bags, though there are people to help.
Parking is expensive at $48 for valet and $20 for an unprotected lot.
The heat/air didn’t work properly in my room, wasn’t an issue since it was a cool night and perfect sleeping temperature with windows open.
The rooms are small, like European scale, and adequate. Bed is comfortable. I’d rather sacrifice room size for location and price, so it works for me.
If you’re expecting a large desk, big closet, and extra floor space, this isn’t the place.
For me this was in a great location with close proximity to the train station and a short walk to the beach and jetty.
It was great having bikes to take out and pedal along the bike tracks.
I love the fact that it was pet friendly, but my last night was marred by the high pitched yelping of a couple of dogs in a nearby room in the middle of the night.

We booked the King room with corner view. Room was smaller than expected but beautifully appointed. Bed was exceedingly comfortable – perhaps the best hotel bed I have ever experienced. The on-site restaurant was friendly, happy and delicious.

We had a great time with the staff and enjoyed every bite of our meals.

We traveled with our family dog and the property was very accommodating and very pet friendly (big bonus points from us).

My recommendation would be given the reduced amenities and service the prices should be adjusted to reflect such, but having no pet fees is nice.

Location can not be beat right downtown

Park the car and walk everywhere or use the free bikes. Use the valets

Also pet friendly hotel a big plus.

I love returning to The Kimpton Canary Hotel in Santa Barbara for a weekend getaway from LA! First of all, the location is perfect. It only takes us less than 2 hours from LA. The hotel is only a few steps from the shops and restaurants on State Street, but not in the loud part of the town.

It is not walking distance to the beach, however, the hotel provides complimentary bikes you can take all the way down to the beach and back… if you ever feel like leaving this amazing property.

Also a huge plus for us is their pet-friendly policy. They LOVE pets, and they are not afraid to show it. My dog got a warm welcome from every staff member in the lobby. Her name was written on a welcome board together with all the other dog guests.

The restaurant Finch and Fork is amazing for brunch as well as cocktails, dinner, and watching games. The rooms are nice, comfortable, and full of natural light. We enjoy every time we come here.
