Visit Santa Barbara
and we guarantee that you’ll want to stay awhile. The scenic vistas, breathtaking beaches, busy streets and delectable restaurants require much more than one day of exploring.
But with so many hotels, inns and motels dotting the main streets, how can you know which one is the best fit for you? 10Best to the rescue! This list narrows down your best overnight options, so you can slumber soundly knowing that you made the right choice.
If you like to be pampered, try one of Santa Barbara’s luxury hotels - many are in prime locations, like the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara
, situated across the street from stunning Butterfly Beach.
If a bed and breakfast is more your style, The Upham
is just the place. Right around the corner from busy State Street, it’s the oldest (and, we suspect, coziest) continuously operating hotel in Southern California. And for those on a sightseeing mission, it’s worth noting that Santa Barbara is home to the very first Motel 6
in America. It’s budget and pet friendly and even has a view of the ocean!
So make a reservation, settle in and stay awhile. Your comfortable night - or nights - in this beach town will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed... and ready for a whole new day full of adventures. Just don’t be surprised if you like your accommodations so much that you find yourself turning in early!
