We booked into Castillo Inn at the Beach in Santa Barbara following a search on Trip Advisor. The friendly staff, Frank and his crew were able to provide us with 2 queen beds and 2 tvs in our room for $140, in a spacious room right across from the beach. We enjoyed a great breakfast around the corner at the original Sambo's.
We appreciated the check out time of 11am, and the friendly advice of the staff. Would recommend to families and couples.
