overall good Nice victorian style hotel in a small town. Room is clean, and spacious. Staffs are friendly. The only part of improvement needed is the meal, although the breakfast is complimentary, the options are very limited, too many sweet, unhealthy, and high carb items.

Beautiful grounds. Great beach access. The two on site restaurants get busy, so make reservations, especially for dinner. Some of the villas are close to a very busy street, so ask for a quitter villa at check-in.

Pocket Guide: Romantic Hotels Hotels in Santa Barbara

A city brimming with Spanish mission-style architecture, wide sandy beaches and a top-notch dining scene, Santa Barbara is a popular destination for romantic weekends away. Often known as the American Riviera, thanks to its year-round sunshine and Mediterranean climate, Santa Barbara is a great place to stay for a romantic escape.

Romantic Hotels in Santa Barbara

The quality and quantity of Santa Barbara's accommodation is particularly high. Choose from swanky five-star beach resorts in the chic suburb of Montecito, or head out to the foothills of the Santa Ynez mountains and book a room in a romantic luxury ranch.

For upscale inns in Victorian-style mansions or quirky haciendas, head to downtown Santa Barbara, where you'll find several romantic places to stay within easy reach of the city's main attractions. Many four- and five-star hotels in and around Santa Barbara feature full-service spas, fine-dining restaurants and infinity pools, perfect for a romantic weekend away.

Stay near Santa Barbara's Arts and Culture Scene

Book a hotel near State Street downtown and you'll be within easy reach of the Mission Santa Barbara, an 18th-century church with a fascinating mission-era museum and Chumash art gallery. Or head to the stylish suburb of Montecito - home to Santa Barbara's celebrity set - and visit Lotusland, the quirky botanical gardens of Madame Ganna Walska, an eccentric Polish opera singer.

Romantic Stays in Santa Barbara Wine Country

Santa Barbara County is renowned for its many vineyards and produces some excellent Californian vintages. Book a hotel in the Santa Ynez Valley, 30 miles northwest of Santa Barbara, and stay in one of its five charming small towns including Solvang, which has a long Danish heritage, or Los Olivos, known for its vineyards and horse ranches.

Santa Barbara's Gastro Scene

After a day on the beach or exploring Santa Barbara's attractions, head back to your romantic hotel for Champagne on the terrace before heading downtown for dinner at one of the upmarket SoCal restaurants just off State Street.

From sprawling ranches in the hills to luxury beachfront resorts, use Expedia to find the best deals on romantic hotels for your next Santa Barbara getaway.
