Very nice, quiet and comfortable hotel. A bit pricey however, perhaps that was because of the weekend. Definitely better than we had expected, and we would come back again. You need to drive or take uber to get to the heart of downtown, or to the pier/beach area. Too far to walk. The front staff ...

If you’re driving the US Highway 101 coastal route, stop off for a stay at one of Santa Barbara’s hotels with a pool. Swim away the drive then enjoy a few days exploring all that Santa Barbara has to offer.

A temperate Mediterranean climate and over 300 days of sunshine a year, it's no surprise that Santa Barbara, the chic beach city on the California coast, is known as the American Riviera. Thanks to its temperate climes, the majority of Santa Barbara’s hotels have outdoor pools to cool off in.

Santa Barbara Hotels with Pools

From budget roadside motels to international chain hotels around East Beach, Santa Barbara has many hotels with outdoor pools. Head east to Carpinteria for low-key motels within easy reach of the coast's beautiful beaches.

For luxury beach resorts with infinity pools and spas, head to the chic suburb of Montecito.

Stay near Santa Barbara's Beaches

Santa Barbara has many white-sand beaches and popular surf spots. Book a hotel in the sleepy surf town of Carpinteria and head to Carpinteria State Beach, which claims to be one of the safest beaches in the country thanks to its clean sands and shallow, reef-protected waters. Surfers looking for an adventure should head to nearby Rincon Beach, famous for its world-class waves.

Highlights of a Stay in Santa Barbara

Pools and beaches aside, Santa Barbara has stacks of mission-era history. Take a few hours to explore the legendary Mission Santa Barbara, a pink-and-cream church with an interesting mission museum and a Chumash art gallery. Or learn more about local Chumash history at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History.

After a day of sightseeing or beach hopping, head back to your Santa Barbara hotel for a dip in the pool, before venturing out to Stearns Wharf, the historic wooden pier lined with popular seafood restaurants.

When you’ve spent enough time in your hotel’s pool, make your way down Highway 101 to the Casitas Water Park or drive inland to Six Flag Hurricane Harbor for a day of waterslides, lazy rivers and water fun.
