                                We loved our stay at the Santa Barbara Inn. The room was a good size and there was a complimentary bottle of fizz in the room as a birthday gift. The staff were lovely and we felt that the location was great.

                                      The quietness of the building was appreciated. However housekeeping was hard to find and when located request was unable to be fillies. My request was for sugar to go with the coffee.

                                          Good location, pretty grounds and atmosphere.Was cute and updated. Pretty courtyard and noticed a lot of guests had dogs. The king mattress was fairly uncomfortable and worn although the kids’ twin mattresses were comfortable, they said. Was mostly quiet outside of what sounded like kids running down the street at 1am. Would go back likely ...

                                          Everyone recognizes the familiar music of the beach: the sound of the surf splashing on the shore, the "slurp" of your chilled cocktail, and seagulls chirping overhead. It's true, a visit to the shore is a time-tested holiday dream. You'll find something for everyone at the seaside, whether you want to saunter along the boardwalk in search of french fries or soak up the sun on the soft sand. Bonus: You'll join lots of other beach bums to trade tales with in Santa Barbara.

                                          We have what you are searching for. Don't miss out—Santa Barbara was among the most visited beach bookings on earth last year. We feature dozens of Santa Barbara beach hotels on our site, and you'll certainly find comforts like plush towels and shampoos to clean away the grains.

It should come as no surprise they were given a spectacular overall rating, and you'll soon see that the building's setting is practically as pretty as the shoreline.
