The 5 Best Hotels for Families in Santa Barbara, California

1. Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore (luxury)

Amazing grounds and architecture. Great full-day kids’ club for ages 5 to 12. A large saltwater pool and a children’s pool are on the beach (and a smaller pool in another location). Yoga, aqua aerobics, pilates, and a top-notch fitness center for the adults.

2. Hampton Inn Santa Barbara/Goleta (moderate)

Good value hotel with nice outdoor pool and king suites that sleep families of 4 and 5. Located a short drive outside of downtown Santa Barabar.

3. Harbor House Inn Santa Barbara (moderate)

King rooms are great for a family of 3 or 4. Full kitchens, free parking, and free wi-fi. Loaner bikes available. A block from the beach.

4. Hotel Milo Santa Barbara (moderate)

You’re paying more for the location right on the beach but worth it. Free breakfast and wi-fi. Courtyard feel and friendly staff.

5. Best Western Plus Pepper Tree Inn (moderate)

Great pool and jacuzzi. Walking distance to a mall but you’ll be driving to the beach or downtown. Good sized rooms. This is a budget hotel by Santa Barbara standards.
