Lovely B&B in Santa Barbara
Beautiful time spent at the Secret Garden Inn in Santa Barbara. Gracious hospitality and the room was lovely. A large private bathroom made our stay so comfortable. The gardens are lovely with tables provided to eat breakfast outdoors if desired. The breakfast served was fantastic! This Inn was truly a delight to stay in!

Secret Garden Inn and Cottages
This is a lovely setting for the cottages. The owner was very gracious and had an evening snack for the guests. It seemed much like a European bed and breakfast. The room was very attractive, clean, and comfortable. The only confusing thing initially is where the free parking is located. If you stay here, get directions for the parking before you go. I would highly recommend this as a great choice.

Poor 2.0
Injury and No Partial or Full Refund
I made reservations for three nights, but had a bad fall and fractured my knee cap. I am in a immobilitzaitio splint and cannot drive. I asked for a refund or a partial refund because I could not be there becasue of injury and Domonique absolutely refused in no uncertain terms to refund any of my money. I was shocked and disheartened because I have been there several times. Needless to say, I will never to there again.

Delightful stay in a charming cottage nestled in a garden that reminded me of Monet. Dominique is a wonderful hostess! Definitely recommend staying here!
