How would you describe your perfect hideaway? Is it a downtown hotel in the heart of Santa Barbara? Is it a seaside beach hotel where you awaken to the sounds of ocean waves hitting the shore? Perhaps a luxurious Santa Barbara resort where every whim is catered to, and you spend each day being pampered to your heart’s content? Or do you prefer a romantic bed and breakfast where you and your beloved can take a break from the outside world to hide away on a secluded garden patio and indulge in wine tastings at dusk?

Like the city itself, Santa Barbara hotels are a study in choice, ranging from exquisite luxury hotels to the brand-name budget motels that you know and trust, to everything in-between. So whether you prefer a family-friendly hotel where kids can be kids, a pet-friendly hotel that pampers to our canine companions, an extended stay hotel for business travelers, Santa Barbara has something for every taste and budget.
