Hotel Californian

“This hotel is exceptional. The staff greet you by name and make you feel as if you are the only person there. The rooms are luxurious, bathrooms are spotless. Blackbird, the fine dining restaurant is incredible. We loved everything about it and would love to visit again!”

Inn at East Beach

“This was an excellent location, and a good value for the area. We had a very private room with a full kitchen suite, which was great for a beach rental for the price. Overall, I'd recommend this unless you are looking for luxury!”

Harbor View Inn

“Beautiful, great location, fantastic staff, yummy room service...but big surprise--valet parking is required. A charge to park per day, plus a tip every time I came & went. An expensive town so I get it, but I can't ever afford to stay here again. Yet a lovely, old world, luxury memory.”

Harbor House Inn

“Wonderful hotel. The management is extremely friendly and supportive. The hotel provides bicycles beach chairs, surfboard etc. for free. The location is perfect, just a few steps away from the beach and restaurants are in walking distance. The rooms are clean and provide everything you will need, but they are not luxurious.”

Hotel Milo Santa Barbara

“Excellent hotel. 5*. Pictures do not do this hotel justice. Beautiful grounds, room and views. Hotel is on the beachfront literally across the road. We got upgraded for free to a deluxe queen room. Four adults staying in one room very spacious. Luxury toiletries to use. Couldn’t have asked for anything better. $25 amenity fee completely reasonable based on lovely continental breakfast, good with lovely tables outside on seafront; and super fast WiFi.”

Belmond El Encanto

“The room, suite really, was luxurious while still making you feel at home. It was so peaceful and quiet, a real sanctuary. The lobby was warm and inviting for pre-dinner drinks, and the breakfast was excellent. Highly recommend if you are looking for a place in Santa Barbara but want something away from the commercial hustle and bustle of State st.”

Alamar by the Sea Motel

“Extremely central location, right across the beach, which is what you pay for. All hotels in that area are likely triple the price. My room was extremely interesting, see pics, like a luxury suite from the 1950's with actually a hot tub (didn't use). I don't think all rooms are like that (mine was the last one second floor on the right side, I think room 119, not sure).”
