"Nice hotel."
Excellent for the price value and location. Close to beach and to State Street, walking distance to many places. Great staff. The bottle of champagne in the room was a pleasant surprise.

"Good value convenient location"
We chose this motel because it was within walking distance to the train, beach and downtown and it was very affordable. Huge rooms, full kitchen, nice breakfast, all the conveniences. It has an older feel to it, but in a good way. We were able to walk easily into town. We would stay there again.

    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.
