You’ll find neighborhood accommodations to suit any style or price point. Take in the view from a cozy beachfront inn or relax in a classic Santa Barbara bed and breakfast with whitewashed walls and a red tile roof. Whether you want to escape to a quiet retreat or stay right in the center of the action, Santa Barbara has the perfect place for your getaway.

It’s easy to make the most of your visit when you stay in one of these fun spots. The inns and bed and breakfasts of Santa Barbara are as welcoming as the neighbors you’ll find there.
