What was Sunset Magazine thinking? After reading a Sunset Magazine article about this Airstream trailer "camp," we booked a trailer for 3 people and a dog one year in advance. We had to pay in full. We were given the Trailer 1 spot, which is so close to the sidewalk, you can almost touch it. This is no camp, my... More

We absolutely loved our stay. Very clean and comfortable bed. We stayed in #4 for two nights and were very happy with everything. Good neighborhood with an excellent breakfast spot just down the street. Will happily stay if ever in Santa Barbara again.

We stayed for 2 nights mid-week in number 5. We loved it. Great facilities - everything we needed. Good neighbourhood, loved the bakery and the pizza/pasta place. I must admit 1st night (Wednesday) was very noisy but it did not bother us too much and we heard nothing the 2nd night (?). We would definitely recommend it and try other... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during our road trip. Again for us it was an American Icon thing and looked good fun, being something a little different from a hotel. We were very pleased with our choice and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We thought the neighborhood was friendly, the bar close by didn`t make any noise there were shops... More

This place exudes character. Its fully restored, it has the moderne stylings, the 1950/1960s feel, with all the pleasures of today, down to the towels, soap and shampoo. It looks a little small but the bathroom and kitchen are perfect, we cooked several meals and had a blast! The location - mid-point between the beach and the foothills, not far... More

We stayed in #4 and it comfortably fit my husband, myself and our teenage son. It was surprisingly quiet with little noise from the street. The place is nicely landscaped with cute succulent pots on each entry deck. I was pleased to see that the existing motorhome park with longer-term residents was left in place. There was no noise from... More

If you ever wanted to sleep in an Airstream trailer, prepare a meal, or sit outside in a real trailer park, this is the place. It is unique. It is classy. It is convenient. It is unusual. It is true glamping, glamorous camping. Everything you might need is a stone's throw away: A really good bakery (Our Daily Bread), a... More

Thank you so much for your helpful review. We love to receive guests feedback on how we can improve our operation. I am truly sorry about the ants. I know that the drought has brought them up from beneath the ground more than ever lately, and we are working on a natural remedy to this issue. I am not sure... More

We had been looking forward to staying here on our roadtrip for months. The expectation was incredibly high. The place just looks so cool. We spent the day of our arrival driving down the coastal highway, which was beautiful. We arrived in Santa Barbara as the sun was setting. We pulled up to Airstream no.3 and we were in love....

I stayed at the Autocamp for three nights and found it very clean and comfortable. The location was great as there were wonderful restaurants in walking distance. We walked to "Sushi" in the evening and "Our Daily Bread" every morning for coffee and breakfast - very convenient as I had children with me. My nine year old daughter remarked how... More

I am obsessed with glamping, so when I saw a blurb about the Auto Camp in Sunset magazine, I suggested to my husband that we go there for our wedding anniversary - with our two kids, though :) The camper we stayed in was immaculately clean, super cutely decorated, and comfortable enough for the four of us and our Boston...

Hello! Thank you so much for the great review! You just described everything we love about hanging out at the Autocamp. I am so happy you received your rainbow caterpillar in a decent amount of time!
