Santa Barbara

Recommended Posts

We just spent four days in Santa Barbara. We were able to walk the four blocks to our hotel with our rolling luggage. After check in, walked one more block to the beach. We spent the four days walking and using public transit. They have a trolley system that only costs fifty cents a ride, twenty-five for seniors. The main business district is perpendicular to the beach and the trolley goes along both. We used the city bus system to go to the mission, but otherwise it is a great car-less city--terrific restaurants, shopping and cultural events. Can't say enough good things about this town.

I stayed at the Eagle Inn a couple of years ago. It is close to the station, and is okay, but pretty expensive. Seems like everything in SBA is $$$$.

Where did you stay? I have been looking for a close hotel to the train station if I am in Santa Barbara.

If you use an app like (or visit the webpage for) kayak.com and enter the street address of the Santa Barbara Amtrak station, you can order your search results by distance from the station.

We stayed at the Marina Beach Motel. It was about $150 a night, during the week. They had a nice breakfast included with the room. The staff was great. The motel was in very good shape.

Consider The Franciscan Inn on Bath St. We stayed there in late September for a very affordable rate. Nice people with comfortable rooms. We walked from the Amtrak station with our luggage without much difficulty.
