"Great location & cute building!"
Carpinteria is a sleepy little town which is 15 mins drive from Santa Barbara. The hotel is right off the freeway, great location! The building is very pretty, especially the courtyard. The hotel staff was a bit stand offish, but responsive to my complain re: sand in my bed. I enjoyed my stay, but one thing that REALLY bothered me and kept me awake at night was..... pigeons!!! They were at my balcony all night, and so loud! The hotel can use some owls... I never knew how loud pigeons can be when you are trying to sleep.

"Older hotel doubles as youth hostel."
Youth oriented older hotel close to the Funk Zone, which is where lots of wineries are for tasting. Nice, helpful staff. Convenient to the beach as well (4 blocks). Generally ugly decor in room has not been updated in seemingly decades. No frig, coffee maker, or glasses in the room. Room was quiet though just off the 101 freeway. Seems expensive for the amenities (SB seems pricey overall).

"Great location for beach, downtown and UCSB"
The hotel is vintage on the outside, in a cool way--very 1960s. But it was clearly restored and all the rooms have been completely modernized to the standard of a chic boutique hotel. Light colored laminate wood flooring, walk-in closet, renovated bathroom, comfortable bed, decor straight out of a magazine, etc. The breakfast was included in the very reasonable price. It was an excellent spread of gourmet deli meats, a delicious baked egg casserole, biscuits, muffins, and plenty of coffee. The hotel is an easy walk to the beach, which was beautiful. Some restaurants were within walking distance. Downtown SB was minutes away by car, and UCSB campus was an easy 15 minute drive. I highly recommend this place for short stays in the area. My flight arrived at LAX in the late evening, so I arrived after hours at the hotel--but the owners made accommodations for my late arrival by leaving keys in a lock box. All pre-arrival communication was by text, which made things super easy.

    Pocket Guide: 3 stars Hotels in Santa Barbara

    Tucked between the Santa Ynez mountains and the Pacific Ocean, the palm-lined beach city of Santa Barbara is often called the American Riviera. With a distinctly Mediterranean appeal, a temperate year-round climate and stacks of Spanish colonial architecture, it's the perfect Californian destination for a week or even two.

    Three-Star Hotels in Santa Barbara

    Use Expedia to search through the variety of three-star places to stay in Santa Barbara, from beachside inns, hacienda-style B&Bs and mid-range hotels with views of the ocean. There are several three-star hotels just moments from the beach and Stearns Wharf, as well as in the area surrounding State Street, the city's main drag.

    Hotels near Santa Barbara’s Beaches

    Book a room in a three-star hotel near the southern end of downtown and you'll be a short hop from both East and West Beaches. East Beach is a 1.6-mile stretch with picnic areas, volleyball courts and children's playgrounds, while the smaller West Beach is sandwiched between Stearns Wharf and Santa Barbara Harbor.

    Stearns Wharf is the city's historic wooden pier. It's lined with upmarket seafood restaurants, quirky gift shops and lively waterfront bars, and is easily reached from downtown, East and West Beach. A 15-minute stroll east is Santa Barbara Zoo, one of the best small zoos in the country. Time it right and you can hand-feed the Masai giraffes or meet the Humboldt penguins.

    Santa Barbara's Bars and Restaurants

    Famous for its healthy SoCal cuisine and Mexican favourites, Santa Barbara dining out is a real pleasure. Eat freshly caught fish and chips on Stearns Wharf, or try one of the many modern Californian restaurants which line State Street.

    After dark, Santa Barbara lights up when dozens of lively pubs, wine bars and cocktail lounges draw the beach crowds to State Street. Thursday night is college night, when Santa Barbara's student population heads downtown to take advantage of all the drink deals.

    From modest roadside inns to casual beachfront hotels, wherever you choose to stay, use Expedia to find a three-star hotel in Santa Barbara.
