"Fantastic resort"
We loved our stay here. Property is beautiful and staff was super friendly, from Philip at check in, to Emmy and Taylor at dinner, to Roland at golf, everyone was so wonderful. Loved the golf course and spa as well.

"Charming vintage, convenient central location"
Although I was traveling on business, this location would be ideal for a base-camp to explore the area. Although small, the rooms are well appointed, very comfortable, with abundant hot water and the softest of robes.

"FYI: Changes at The Capri, but we still had a good"
My boyfriend and I went once again to The Capri, this time arriving the day before Thanksgiving and leaving Friday after Thanksgiving. The Capri is under new ownership so here are what has changed. No longer is there a free continental breakfast, no more DVD/VHS player or free VHS movies in the room, no more treats or drinks to purchase in the room, the computer in the lobby is gone. They also do not do Living Social or Groupon so be warned. The girl that checked us in said they have told these two places but people were still being sold these discounted coupons and that made for mad customers. The chaise lounge has also been removed from the room. We still had a great time there and will return again and again.

"Very nice hotel close to the beach!"
Great accommodations especially considering the distance to the beach. Good breakfast and great staff. We arrived late and left early but the hotel has a nice pool area we wished we could've had use. The room was clean and comfortable.

"Great Hotel for the Thankgiving Holiday"
We couldn't have asked for better. The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. It was great having a relaxing area in the lobby or outside by the fire pit to socialize when some members of our group wanted to sleep. The putting green was nice. All of the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful when asked questions about the area.

"Nice hotel near UCSB"
I had a great experience staying at Hampton Inn with colleagues as we were attending a professional development conference at UCSB. The hotel is near the freeway that quickly got us to the campus- it took us less than 5 minutes.

"Amazing beach location but disappointing staff"
The location near the beach, harbor and shops on State St is ideal. The hotel itself is older and is showing its age, i.e. closet door in room was broken, screen was ripped and doorknob to stairs fell off when used. The staff was inexperienced and they only had one staff person at the front desk during check-in time at 4:00pm and again only one person at check out time. Two rooms of the exact same type were booked but ended up with two completely different size rooms. If you are willing to put up with lackluster customer service and older amenities, the location is beautiful (provided you have an ocean view room) and conveniently located near the harbor and downtown.

    Pocket Guide: Family Friendly Hotels in Santa Barbara

    Tucked away between the Santa Ynez mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara is less than a two-hour drive from the theme parks of LA and perfect for a laid-back family beach stay.

    Stay in palm-lined Santa Barbara for miles of white sand beaches, a hip surf scene and great city parks – all suitable for kids.

    Family-Friendly Hotels in Santa Barbara

    Santa Barbara offers a variety of B&Bs, inns and international chain hotels, all catering for a family crowd. For family-friendly hotels with swimming pools, gyms and restaurants, head to hotels around Stearns Wharf or the stylish suburb of Montecito, where some hotels offer kids' clubs, bike hire and babysitting services. <.p>

    For family-friendly hotels near Santa Barbara's many beaches, head out to the quieter coastal towns of Goleta and Carpinteria, home to Carpinteria State Beach, regarded as one of the safest in the US.

    Santa Barbara's Family Attractions

    Maybe spend the morning hanging out on East Beach, then a ten-minute stroll east is the Santa Barbara Zoo, regarded as one of the best small zoos in the country. Or head to Shoreline Park in the Mesa District. A perfect spot between the ocean and the city, it has a kids' playground, a Japanese garden and a whale-watching area with a telescope.

    Santa Barbara was first inhabited by Spanish Missionaries back in the 1600s. Get the kids learning about California's missionary history with a visit to the iconic Mission Santa Barbara. Perched on a hill a mile from downtown, this beautiful pink-and-cream church has a fascinating mission-era museum and a Chumash art gallery.

    Family Dining in Santa Barbara

    After a day on the beach or feeding the giraffes at the zoo, head back to your family-friendly Santa Barbara hotel for a rest, before heading for dinner at Stearns Wharf, the city's famous wooden pier-turned-dining and entertainment hub. While you’re there, say hi to the resident sea lions and brown pelicans.
