Hotels and Motels

Santa Barbara hotels and motels range from large, inclusive properties to smaller, recently revamped motels, name-brand lodges, and everything in between. The Spanish Colonial style of architecture that defines the city is also apparent in many establishments, while others embody a more contemporary European look and feel. Some have the retro beach vibe that has drawn visitors in for decades.

The area’s earliest architects knew one thing for sure — this was going to be a place people would always want to visit. Then and now, the city encourages travelers to become a part of the Santa Barbara experience, not just a viewer of it.

Whatever you’re looking for, we invite you to find your Santa Barbara South Coast side in one of these fantastic properties.
