The Best Hotel In Santa Barbara- Montecito Inn

What a fabulous birthday ( day...week...month!) I have had!

There were birthday drinks....(go this striped number at Marshalls for $29)



Birthday Lunch (At Villa Blanca OF COURSE!)



But the best time of all was being at my dream place, my new home away from home, The Montecito Inn. Yes, I am talking Montecito, home of Oprah, Rob Lowe, Drew Barrymore...and hopefully one day me! I digress...

Montecito is the jewel of Santa Barbara with fabulous things like: Butterfly Beach..


And the cutest town you've ever seen. And right on the Boulevard is Montecito Inn.


 It was built in 1928 by Charlie Chaplin!! Amazing history and a boutique luxury hotel! The rooms are fabulous and best of all you can walk to lunch, dinner, or shopping! They even have a pool. And it is kid friendly!

You can even make things super easy and dine downstairs in their cute little cafe! The food is great.



But there's one special room you will not believe. Something called "The Apartment". And yes, my husband wrangled this for us for my birthday weekend. Wait until you see it in my next post! Have you been to Santa Barbara? Or to the Montecito Inn?

The Montecito Inn is wonderful! I kinda miss that cafe. And the fact that you can just walk around to any place you fancy. Will definitely go back there before the year is over.
