I liked, for this time to Santa Barbara, that it was away from the beach front. It was nice to change things up considering it was summertime & hotels are always booked up.

We booked here as there was nothing else available the weekend we were staying in carp. We were a bit skeptical, but were pleasantly surprised by the hotel and the room. It's a great location within walking distance to town and close to the beach.

Pocket Guide: 2 stars Hotels in Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is a popular stop along the coastal U.S. Highway 101. With five colleges and universities, including the University of California’s Santa Barbara campus, and a loyal surf crowd, Santa Barbara offers a wide range of good two-star accommodation.

Two-Star Hotels in Santa Barbara

Book a room in a two-star hotel in Santa Barbara and you'll have easy access to all of Santa Barbara main attractions. Head downtown to find a mix of modern roadside inns, rustic guesthouses and pocket-friendly places to stay, all catering to a budget-conscious crowd.

While Santa Barbara has a repution for being upmarket, a few miles up the coast is Goleta, home to University of California’s Santa Barbara campus, with beachfront hotels, ideal if you want to be near great nightlife and Santa Barbara’s popular surf beaches.

Stay near Santa Barbara’s Best Beaches

Santa Barbara has some of the finest beaches on the Californian coast. East and West Beaches have volleyball courts, picnic areas and beach cafes for a perfect day at the beach. But don’t miss a trip to Stearns Wharf, a historic pier with waterfront bars, seafood restaurants and quirky gift shops. Dedicated surfers should head east to Carpinteria and California’s legendary Rincon Beach.

Explore Santa Barbara’s Historic Attractions from Your Two-Star Hotel

Book a two-star hotel in downtown Santa Barbara and the city’s main cultural attractions are on your doorstep. See Chumash artefacts in the 19th-century Mission Santa Barbara, or the natural exhibits at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. For great views of the city and ocean, climb the 85 foot-high El Mirador clock tower at the Santa Barbara County Courtroom.

Enjoy Santa Barbara’s Nightlife

After a day of sightseeing, head back to your two-star Santa Barbara hotel for a swim in the pool, before sampling the city’s nightlife. Downtown Santa Barbara is packed with lively bars, cocktail lounges and laid-back Californian style restaurants. If you’re looking for a cheap night out, head to the lively student bars on State Street before heading back for a comfortable sleep in your two-star hotel.
