"Nice hotel- close to the beach "
Great location. Friendly hotel staff. We would stay there again. The hotel is broken in to five separate buildings which made for a bit of confusion as there are no signs directing room numbers (lower and higher) from one building to another. Three other guest and I spent fifteen minutes walking around in the same building due to lack of signage. Other than this- everything was great. Valet, front desk, and room service staff were excellent!

" Nice location. We could walk to beach and stores."
We enjoyed our room and location on private beach. We needed to do laundry and had problems with the washing machines. We got it done but a little frustrating. We ate in the restaraunt one night and it as good. The staff were awesome.

    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.
