"Castillo inn"
The "jacuzzi" is a little misleading as it is just a regular shower/tub with pumps. Aside from that the room was nice, clean and spacious and the front desk clerk was very helpful and nice.

"Great location, amenities, room"
Stayed in a king suite. Things we liked: Spacious - good sized room with large bathroom & kitchen. Property amenities - free to borrow: beach chairs, bicycles, beach towels, beach toys, DVDs. Service - everyone is super nice in a genuine way. Location - just a couple blocks from the water and a quick walk to Stearns Wharf. Quiet neighborhood most of the time, other than the occasional train (tracks crossing & station several blocks away). Funk zone is walkable from Harbor House Inn, though we didn't go.

"Perfect get away!"
I absolutely loved this hotel. The entire hotel is so welcoming and spotless. The room felt like I was in a beach cottage. It was so peaceful and quaint. I loved the character the hotel had that you can not find in big resorts. Breakfast is served every morning and it was so delicious! I will definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone!

"Nice hotel just off the 101"
Not your standard BW - quaint and quiet even though it is just next to 101. Mission style design with updated rooms and beautiful courtyard. Enjoyed a margarita from the bar and sat poolside while my kiddos swam

"Charming hotel with European feel"
There were some exceptional characteristics of this hotel, although it was dated. It had a unique charm by retaining some of its original features like an old fashioned elevator that still was operational and bathrooms that were original and well maintained. It offered fresh squeezed OJ, good coffee and wrapped pastries in the morning. If the pastries were fresh baked it would have been a perfect alternative to the typical canned fruit and make your own waffle. The common areas and rooms had an authentic elegance. The staff was well trained and helpful. It was nice to be at an establishment that didn't feel like a clone of the popular chain hotels. Our room was quiet, but I can't speak for those facing the highway. My only complaints are that there was an additional charge for parking and the valet was not available in the late evening. The restaurant was closed and may be in the renovation process. There was an outdoor walkway form the main building with lobby to the other side of the hotel.

    Pocket Guide: Beach Hotels in Santa Barbara

    Santa Barbara and neighbouring beachfront towns of Goleta and Carpinteria is known as the American Riviera, thanks to sweeping white sand beaches, a year-round Mediterranean climate and over 300 days of sunshine each year. Santa Barbara is great for a weekend or longer, or to use as a base for a tour of the Californian coast.

    Beachfront Hotels in Santa Barbara

    With some of America's best beaches, Santa Barbara has a wide variety of oceanfront hotels, from casual inns with swimming pools and diners, small, family-run hotels right up to sprawling luxury beach resorts.

    There is a number of hotels and inns within moments of Santa Barbara's East and West beaches, and within easy walking distance of the shops, bars and restaurants downtown.

    Stay near Santa Barbara's Surf Beaches

    Californian coast is renowned for its world-class surf spots and Carpinteria's Rincon Beach is one of the state's top surf destinations. Give surfing a try with lessons from one of the town's many surf schools, or try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding or windsurfing.

    Or relax with the locals on Carpinteria State Beach, one of the world's safest beaches thanks to its flat, clean sands and shallow, reef-protected waters. Explore the rockpools, have a picnic or just lounge on the beach, listening to the shore birds and the waves.

    Santa Barbara's Dining and Nightlife

    After a day on the beach or catching some waves, head back to your Santa Barbara hotel for a shower and a relaxing drink in the bar, before venturing out to sample the city's vibrant nightlife.

    Lower State Street downtown is brimming with hip pubs, craft breweries and cocktail bars, as well as trendy SoCal restaurants. It worth remembering that Thursday night is college night, when the city's students make their way to the many local bars to take advantage of their drink deals.

    From oceanfront inns and chain hotels, to swanky beach resorts, use Expedia to find the best deals on Santa Barbara’s beach hotels.
