      Santa Barbara Hotel Insider
      Santa Barbara is one of California’s overlooked gems, overshadowed by its sprawling megalopolis sisters San Francisco to the north and Los Angeles to the south. But the city has no shortage of attributes to offer visitors. Often referred to as the American Riviera, Santa Barbara has beautiful beaches, a colorful and eclectic culture, a thriving nightlife, and a renowned wine country that make it a premier resort destination. Hotels in Santa Barbara cater to this environment, offering everything from romantic getaways to luxurious retreats, extended stay business accommodations, and family-friendly vacations.

      Santa Barbara Hotels
      As with many prime California coastal cities, there is no shortage of luxury hotels in Santa Barbara. Set up home away from home at premiere establishments such as the Canary Hotel, where you can enjoy the city’s only rooftop pool deck; the Bacara Resort & Spa, just steps away from the beaches and bluffs; or the exquisite Simpson House Inn, the only five diamond rated bed and breakfast in North America. Each of these hotels is nestled among the heart of the city’s most popular attractions like historic downtown and the stunning seaside, and offers tours to the famous Santa Ynez Valley wine country. If you really want to schmooze with the rich and famous, drop the big bucks for San Ysidro Ranch, an exquisite resort of vine-covered cottages hidden away from the city hub.

      For those looking for a more unique and intimate hotel experience, there is a vast array of boutique hotels in Santa Barbara worth checking out. Stop in at Pacifica Suites, a popular dog friendly hotel that caters to both business and leisure guests. Or try Hotel Indigo, an artsy and eco-minded choice just steps away from the main downtown strip and the Amtrak station.

      For the budget-minded, there are plenty of so-called cheap hotels in Santa Barbara as well. Try the Sandpiper Lodge, West Beach Inn, or Harbor View Inn, all of which offer reasonable rates, yet the same class of service and standards you’d expect if you paid more.

      Attractions and Environs
      There is an endless variety of things to do in Santa Barbara. Besides the miles of surf and sand, you can tour the historic Old Mission Santa Barbara, visit animals from all over the world at Santa Barbara Zoo, or browse the art galleries and boutique shops along State Street. The Lemon Tree Inn and Presidio Motel are great choices to stay near these locations, both offering quaint, homey, and lovingly decorated rooms and a friendly atmosphere.

      Out on the coastline, don’t miss the Coronado Butterfly Preserve, a protected land trust in Santa Barbara with millions of monarch butterflies fluttering above scenic hiking trails. You can put up for the night in Courtyard Marriott Santa Barbara Goleta, a comfortable brand hotel just a mere mile from the preserve. El Capitan State Beach makes for an easy day trip from the city, but if you want to stay overnight, the picturesque eco-friendly El Capitan Canyon resort is top notch.

      Be sure to visit the valley’s beautiful wine country, filled with rolling hills and sweeping vineyards. There, you can stay in a number of bed and breakfasts like the country-styled Cheshire Cat Inn, The Secret Garden Inn, or Santa Ynez Inn, a world-class, turn of the century hotel where you can sample local wines or while away the afternoon in their cozy library. It is also a convenient launching point for the quaint Danish village of Solvang.
