Pocket Guide: Choice Hotels in Santa Barbara

Choice Hotels: From Budget Accommodation to Boutique Hotels

Founded in 1939, Choice Hotels is an American hospitality company which owns and operates well-known brands including Quality Inn, Comfort Inn and Comfort Suites and the Ascend Hotel Collection.

Choice Hotels operates a number of hotels across the US, including two- and three-star Quality Inns and the more unique, boutique Ascend Hotel Collection, all of which are in Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley.

Facilities at Santa Barbara’s Choice Hotels

One of Choice Hotel's most prominent brands is Quality Inn, two-star inns offering comfort and convenience at an affordable price. The relaxed rooms all have cable TV, free WiFi and coffeemakers, while onsite you can enjoy outdoor pools, on-site parking and free breakfast as standard.

Stay in a Choice Hotel in Santa Barbara

Book a room in a Quality Inn in downtown Santa Barbara and you'll have easy access to some of the city's main attractions. Visit the Mission Santa Barbara, an ornate 18th-century pink-and-cream church built by Spanish missionaries. Known as the Queen of the Missions, it has a fascinating museum, a sacred garden and a Chumash art gallery.

Nearby is the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, which houses the full-domed Gladwin Planetarium and a space lab.

After a day seeing the sights, head back to your Santa Barbara Choice hotel for a swim, before heading down to the waterfront for sunset. Visit Stearns Wharf, an historic wooden pier now home to some of the city's best seafood restaurants. Or venture out to the laid-back bars and restaurants on State Street, for a true taste of SoCal cuisine.

Stay in Santa Barbara Wine Country

Thirty miles from downtown, you can explore the five small towns in the Santa Ynez Valley that make up Santa Barbara Wine Country, thanks to their abundance of wineries and vineyards. There are Choice hotels in the charming towns of Buellton and Solvang, which both have easy access to the region's best wineries.

Santa Barbara's range of Choice hotels offers you everything from comfort and affordability to a unique boutique experience, perfect for your next Californian getaway.
