... and headed to the harbor in hopes to grab lunch at Brophy's, but unfortunately there was a long wait. As we were leaving for plan b, we saw the actress that plays Sarah on the ABC show Revenge. We ended up going to Shoreline, where we ate on the beach with our feet in the sand. The fish tacos were great and the view was priceless.
For the remainder of the day we relaxed at the house, enjoyed an awesome view from the back deck, and completed the ...

... and gorgeous rugs.

We crossed the street and headed back towards the ship, and we saw a woman holding a sign that said "Hungry. Please help." There are quite a few homeless people in Santa Barbara and many have funny signs or signs like “Blah Blah Blah I just want alcohol. Give me money.” So seeing this simple plee for food and not money for booze made me turn back and buy a BLT sandwich and an apple juice from a specialty café for this woman. ...

... 4200 ft. – and on the way down, it’s like we added another 5 degrees in the warm. It was an awesome drive up and down.

And we finally leave the I-5, 1st time we are in the US, but before we can reach Hwy 101, Paul discovered a car wash…. And now our motorhome looks nice and clean again so we are ready for the beach in…..

... to learn more about the people who populate this revolving ball in the universe.

After the tour, I wonder over to a resto, Tupelo Junction, that has a lineup out the door (I noticed it during the tour as well). Being a party for one, I was quickly seated. I'm up at the bar and after much pondering settle on this dish:

... git a but geographically embarrassed driving in Santa Barbara suburbs, but it was an interesting insight, very well kept and cultivated. Seemed like a place wealthy people may retire to.
We kept driving up the 101 to Pismo Beach for dinner. This is a beachside tourist town with beautiful Pier. There seems like many coastal towns boast huge piers. Lots of surfers, and to my delight swings on the beach. I took the boys to ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews A White Jasmine Inn Santa Barbara

    Excellent Stay

    from

    We spent two nights in the Grande Suite. Very comfortable bed (yes John, the bed was comfortable - even my wife who complians about beds regularly thought so) and cozy room. Great location for downtown dining in Santa Barbara - just a short walk away. Located in quiet area away from 101 and the railroad. Convenient parking and charming gardens. Grande Suite is in a separate building with some other rooms across the street from the main location, so did not partake of the common areas of the inn (which looked comfortable) even though they were available to us. Nice cooked breakfast delivered to the room including fresh fruit , juice, bakery goods and egg dishes. Do it yourself coffee or tea available in room. Good fritatta and omelette (better than the frittatta, in our opinion) on the days we were there.

    Friendly host - cordial and flaky (in a good sense).

    Delicious Breakfast, Friendly Management/Service

    from

    My girlfriend and I stayed at the Glenborough for a special anniversary weekend. There were many things we enjoyed. The house itself had character which we clearly saw upon arrival. Inside, we stayed in the French Rose which was quite lovely and furnished with a decent-sized jacuzzi tub. The breakfasts brought to our door each morning were gourmet quality! The quiche and the french toast are an experience within themselves- it was wonderful eating it right by the window facing the street and rose garden. There were also delicious cookies, wine, crackers and cheese to tide us over during the day and the night. The manager was friendly and helpful, offering towels for the beach. He also gave us our space to explore Santa Barbara for ourselves and to sleep in without being disturbed (until 1-2pm!) which is just what we wanted. Overall, we had a wonderful weekend and aftwards, they still wanted to know how they could improve. We had no criticisms whatsoever and hope to stay again.

    Great getaway

    from

    Had a wonderful time at this bed and breakfast. Convenient walking to restaurants and entertainment. Nouveau Luxury Suite was super comfortable, with private entrance, patio, and spa. Breakfast is served in your room on your schedule, a real plus. We will definitely be back.

    Wonderful time in SB!!

    from

    Never been to Santa Barbara and my first experience at a bed and breakfast. Loved the quaint, cozy feeling at the Glenborough Inn. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with another couple. We had an amazing weekend. And the breakfasts were fabulous...Wonderful food and fabulous environment. Loved it, loved it, loved it!!

    A wonderful romantic getaway!

    from

    On the spur of the moment we decided to go to Santa Barbara....on the July 4th weekend...without a reservation. Had read about the Glenborough Inn and decided to take a chance. Rang their bell and was greeted by a delightfully friendly innkeeper with a great sense of humor whose name was John. He had 1 room left...due to a last minute cancellation. The room was called the Captain's Quarters. There was a fireplace in the bedroom and a wonderful jacuzzi tub for 2 in the bathroom. The decor of the room was, of course, nautical and charming. Had a great night's sleep in the large comfortable bed, and awoke at 9am with a housekeeper holding a breakfast tray of french toast, juice and fruit for 2.

    We will definitely be back and highly recommend it!

    Terrible Service

    from

    We stayed at the Glenborough Inn over Christmas 2002 and it was a very unpleasant experience. Upon our arrival on Christmas Eve - around 6 pm - we were received as if we weren't wanted. We assumed that the woman was not happy having to work during the holidays and let it go. Upon checking into our room we noticed that one of the windows would not close. When we brought this to the attention of the host, she said to just stuff a towel in the window - this is not much security for a first floor room! It gets worse - on Christmas morning we were opening presents and although we had the "do not disturb" sign up, there came a knock on the door - same rude woman - demanding that we let them pick up the breakfast dishes..less than an hour after having it dropped off.

    As to the breakfast, it was fine, but the portions were small and you had no opportunity to have seconds. It was clear to us at that point that we weren't wanted - the common area, which was small, was unwelcoming - stuffed animals and dolls on all of the furniture. The message being take your stale cookies (grocery store cookies) and go back to your room. To top it all off, on our last morning my girlfriend woke up sick and we put out the "do not disturb" sign again because she just wanted to sleep in. This time she called and demanded that we let them come and make up the room - this was hours before checkout time. I told them they could come back after we left and hung up.

    The room was reasonably nice, but the prices were excessive for the service we received. We have enjoyed numerous B&Bs and this is the only one where we had a negative experience.

    Straight up, John

    No Hospitality

    from

    We went to the Inn for a romantic weekend. The accomodations were okay - nothing extra special. The staff was awful - incredibly non-friendly.

    A woman showed us to our room and explained the layout but didn't crack a smile the whole time. Breakfast was brought to the room, but the food was pretty awful (some kind of mexican egg soufle, 1/2 a muffin and a small glass of fruit smoothie). You had to make your own coffee or tea in the small coffee pot in the room. No seconds. When we checked out in the morning, the owner was rude to us - complained that we weren't allowed to have a third person in the room (my 10 month old baby) and no children were allowed. No one mentioned this to us when we made the reservation or checked in. I would never recommend a place that was so unfriendly.

    Lovely but impersonal

    from

    My husband and I just returned from the Inn. The accommodations were lovely, but we found the entire experience very impersonal. The inkeepers were much more "hands-off" than any other B&B we've ever visited. When we were shown to our large, well-appointed room, it was in a separate house down the street. It was a cold, rainy day, and no one had bothered to turn on any heat in advance of our arrival. It took hours for the room to warm up. There is a wine/cheese hour in the main house, but the innkeepers were not there to answer questions or provide local area information. Finally, breakfast service is in your room, as there is no common dinig room. A romantic concept, but the housekeeping staff drops off a basket with your food and leaves. There is no chance for a second glass of juice or piece of toast. When I mentioned these criticisms to the innkeeper, she was very dismissive and seemed completely uninterested in what I had to say. If you want a place where you feel on your own, you should consier this. If you perfer more attention, then you may feel as we did that we would have been happier elsewhere.
