1. Re: Santa Barbara CA bed and breakfasts

Having been a resident manager at one of Santa Barbara's bed and breakfasts many years ago, I am familiar with some of them -- most of them. All are quite nice. Many of them offer a variety of rooms with different room features and different room sizes. and configurations.

I suggest that you make a list of the amenities and room features that are important to you, and then focus on your list as you do your research.

What size bed? Do you want a fireplace in your room? A whirlpool tub for two? The option of breakfast delivered to your room? A large room? A smaller room? Ocean views? Close to State Street? Close to the trolley? Close to the beach? If you are visiting in warm months, is room air-conditioning important to you? Would you like a swimming pool or a spa on the property? Do you want your room to be located in the *main house* or would you like or prefer to be in a cottage, or in a room in another building either on the property or across the street?

Also, be sure to ask if the bathroom is *en suite*.

Enjoy your time in Santa Barbara!

The Simpson House Inn is highly rated, has a great reputation, is close to downtown, and next to a pretty park - Alice Keck Park Park. The Cheshire Cat Inn is close to downtown, is on a street with other Victorian homes - I would try for a room in the main house.

There are a variety of Bed & Breakfast type lodgings. Most hotels in SB offer some kind of breakfast option, so if breakfast included is your criteria, then there's a lot of choices.

My hotel is considered by many to be a B&B. Trip Advisor lists us in the B&B/Inn category. There's a plethora of hotels to choose from in West Beach, which is IMHO the best part of Santa Barbara to stay in.

Happy hunting!

We missed the breakfast when we stayed, so I often forget about the B in the Eagle Inn - Great hotel in a great neighborhood.

We liked The Upham B & B some years ago. Check them out.
