    Good! - 79% of guests recommend

    This is the first time that I've decided to stay here. I've decided to stay here because of it's "PRICE". I thought that I wouldn't be staying in the room much, so I wanted to stave some money on hotel room and spend it elsewhere. The sound you open the door to your hotel room, you are basically inside your ...

    For me, this place was on the border between two and three stars. The gardens are pretty, some of the rooms have blocked off patio areas for privacy with hot tubs and the main room has the appearance of comfort. However, the location is poor, not within comfortable walking distance of anything and everything about it is old - not ...

    Great location and nice and quiet. It need a bit of TLC but it is in pretty good shape. The rooms are nice but could use a little updating. They still use real keys for the doors. Definitely recommend.

    Free breakfast, free wifi, quiet and spacious rooms, and a reasonable prices. What more could you ask for?! They are also pet friendly and make the breakfast to your specific liking. Remember that the rooms are suites so they come with all the fixings (mini-fridge and pull out sofa, dvd player, flat screen). It's a great place to stay if ...

    This place gives me the hibby jibbies. Is that a word? Well, it was on Boy Meets World and that's exactly what I mean. This was basically the only place you can afford during Bimmerfest season, a weekend in May where BMW owners used gather in the thousands in Santa Barbara. The hotels knew this, Ramada knew this and that's ...

    This hotel is an ideal location in Santa Barbara. Located on upper state street right across the street from a major shopping mall. The rooms are very nice and the pool has a nice setting. Great middle of the road hotel to use when visiting the Santa Barbara area.

    Motel style accommodations. Very clean. If you want a little more, Lemon Tree has it. Have to try that next. But, I was very satisfied with Orange Tree.

    The hotel is clean and right on the water. Good beds and linens. The staff is attentive, friendly and accommodating. The location is excellent, because you could walk to the pier or go to the beach or walk down to the winery tasting rooms. I stayed here with my wife and was given a free upgrade to a harbor view ...

    Agave Inn

    1 review

    Very small, about 10 rooms. It used to be an old motel, but has been updated with new styling and bright colors on the exterior. The room was fine, few ants in the bathroom and a broken shelf. Not in walking distance from downtown or the heart of State Street. (Considered uptown SB). Free wifi and ample parking at the ...

    Excellent! - 89% of guests recommend

    This is a cute Mediterranean style hotel. When you check in, you're greeted a wine and cheese reception in the afternoon and cookies and milk in the evening. In the morning continental breakfast is available. The rooms were okay. It's close to the beach. But if you can't live without your laptop, they do have free WI-FI.

    Gets the job done if you're coming to the Santa Barbara area. Located on upper State Sreet, so it's not quite downtown and it's still 8 miles or so from Goleta. It's right in between. This is a motel so don't go in with any expectations. Really meager breakfast but the staff is friendly. The reason to go here would ...

    This is a nice hotel and a good option if you are in the area. Teams like to stay here - the hotel has a good layout and a pool centrally located. It is a little old and there are some newer hotels in the area if that interests you. Good rates usually.

    cute, quaint motel. It seems like it was a old dorm or camp that was converted into a motel room. It's really cute. They decorated it wall decals and added cute Ikea furniture. It's nothing fancy but very decent for the price (busy weekend of$ 179 that Friday night). You have to tell them if you're coming in to check ...

Santa Barbara Hotel Insider
Santa Barbara is one of California’s overlooked gems, overshadowed by its sprawling megalopolis sisters San Francisco to the north and Los Angeles to the south. But the city has no shortage of attributes to offer visitors. Often referred to as the American Riviera, Santa Barbara has beautiful beaches, a colorful and eclectic culture, a thriving nightlife, and a renowned wine country that make it a premier resort destination. Hotels in Santa Barbara cater to this environment, offering everything from romantic getaways to luxurious retreats, extended stay business accommodations, and family-friendly vacations.

Santa Barbara Hotels
As with many prime California coastal cities, there is no shortage of luxury hotels in Santa Barbara. Set up home away from home at premiere establishments such as the Canary Hotel, where you can enjoy the city’s only rooftop pool deck; the Bacara Resort & Spa, just steps away from the beaches and bluffs; or the exquisite Simpson House Inn, the only five diamond rated bed and breakfast in North America. Each of these hotels is nestled among the heart of the city’s most popular attractions like historic downtown and the stunning seaside, and offers tours to the famous Santa Ynez Valley wine country. If you really want to schmooze with the rich and famous, drop the big bucks for San Ysidro Ranch, an exquisite resort of vine-covered cottages hidden away from the city hub.

For those looking for a more unique and intimate hotel experience, there is a vast array of boutique hotels in Santa Barbara worth checking out. Stop in at Pacifica Suites, a popular dog friendly hotel that caters to both business and leisure guests. Or try Hotel Indigo, an artsy and eco-minded choice just steps away from the main downtown strip and the Amtrak station.

For the budget-minded, there are plenty of so-called cheap hotels in Santa Barbara as well. Try the Sandpiper Lodge, West Beach Inn, or Harbor View Inn, all of which offer reasonable rates, yet the same class of service and standards you’d expect if you paid more.

Attractions and Environs
There is an endless variety of things to do in Santa Barbara. Besides the miles of surf and sand, you can tour the historic Old Mission Santa Barbara, visit animals from all over the world at Santa Barbara Zoo, or browse the art galleries and boutique shops along State Street. The Lemon Tree Inn and Presidio Motel are great choices to stay near these locations, both offering quaint, homey, and lovingly decorated rooms and a friendly atmosphere.

Out on the coastline, don’t miss the Coronado Butterfly Preserve, a protected land trust in Santa Barbara with millions of monarch butterflies fluttering above scenic hiking trails. You can put up for the night in Courtyard Marriott Santa Barbara Goleta, a comfortable brand hotel just a mere mile from the preserve. El Capitan State Beach makes for an easy day trip from the city, but if you want to stay overnight, the picturesque eco-friendly El Capitan Canyon resort is top notch.

Be sure to visit the valley’s beautiful wine country, filled with rolling hills and sweeping vineyards. There, you can stay in a number of bed and breakfasts like the country-styled Cheshire Cat Inn, The Secret Garden Inn, or Santa Ynez Inn, a world-class, turn of the century hotel where you can sample local wines or while away the afternoon in their cozy library. It is also a convenient launching point for the quaint Danish village of Solvang.
