Charming Inn - Close to the BeachI enjoyed my recent stay at the Montecito Inn. The staff was extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean, comfortable and very quiet. The hotel is located within an easy walk to a nice beach and also located very close to many restaurants. I would definitely stay there again.

Pocket Guide: 4 stars Hotels in Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is a popular stopover on the coastal US Highway 101, 100 miles from LA. The oceanfront city is known as the American Riviera, thanks to its year-round Mediterranean climate, 300 days of sunshine and Spanish colonial architecture.

Stylish Four-Star Hotels in Santa Barbara

Many of Santa Barbara’s four-star hotels are built in the European Mission style with terracotta-red roofs and whitewashed walls. Most have swimming pools, modern restaurants and chic bars. Use Expedia to search through Santa Barbara’s four-star accommodation and you can choose one that has a full-service and bike hire, too.

Stay near Santa Barbara's Attractions

Book a hotel by the beach or downtown and you'll be within walking distance or a short bus ride from many of Santa Barbara main attractions. Visit the landmark 18th-century Mission Santa Barbara, just north of downtown, and see the colourful frescoes in the Santa Barbara County Courthouse or its 85-foot observation tower, with its sweeping views of the city and the ocean.

Santa Barbara's Wine Country

Santa Barbara County is renowned for its excellent Californian wines. Book a four-star hotel in one of the Santa Ynez Valley's main towns, such as Solvang or Los Olivos, and you can tour Santa Barbara wine country’s over 100 wineries. Your four-star hotel can book you on a guided bus trip wine tour and tasting, or you could add a bit more adventure to your wine tasting on a cycling tour. So leave the car at the hotel and head off on a Santa Barbara wine experience.

Shopping and Dining in Santa Barbara

Head to city's Historic State Street Plaza, a popular outdoor shopping mall with designer boutiques, high-street labels and quirky gift shops. Or find smaller, local designers and boutiques in La Arcada mall.

After a day of sightseeing, make your way back to your Santa Barbara hotel for a drink in the bar, or head out to the surrounding streets for a margarita or two in a local bar. Wherever you choose to stay, use Expedia to find the best four-star hotel in Santa Barbara to suit you.
