We stayed at Autocamp as part of a long road - trip through the West Coast. As such we have a large amount of luggage with us. I had booked an Aistream for three of us (and was convinced I'd booked a two - bedroom unit, but must have been mistaken). In common with other visitors we were disappointed by... More

We had a great stay here. Stayed as a family of four (two adults, daughter age four, son age six months). The trailers are clean, well-furnished, and easy to manage. Check-in and check-out processes were both great. It's important to know that the camp is miles away from the downtown area (a 10-15 minute drive) and is housed in a... More

Thank you for your thoughtful review. I know that we are 3 miles from the downtown tourist area and for some that is not close enough. I am glad that our cleaning standards were up to par. We do our very best to make sure each guest is happy and comfortable. Thanks again! Christi More

The other hotels in Santa Barbara were booked up and we ended up staying in one of the Airstreams at AutoCamp. It was such a pleasant surprise. I kind of want to keep this place as a secret for myself but I try to not be selfish. The insides are completely modern and have all of the amenities you'd expect.... More

So much to say about staying here so I'll keep it short if poss. Firstly don't forget your final email from auto camp (very important) it gives you the airstream number and code to get in. Being from the UK we had no phone signal so couldn't contact the office which is not on site. Many thanks to the friendly... More

Excellent layout. We had everything we needed - and it is all done with style. Great for a family of four and surprisingly roomy. The outside space is great. While the location is not central, it's a quick drive or uber into town / beach and the surrounding area has some good places to get food.

Had a great couple of days at Autocamp! We'd been staying in various hotels in Vegas and LA so this was a pleasant and quiet alternative. Santa Barbara is beautiful and has lots to offer.

they didn't send the right email to me. We called and got it soon. Very happy with everything they offered. There is a supermarket nearby where you could walk by. We rode bikes there and enjoy downtown Santa Barbara.

Stayed two years after our first visit. The property was in excellent condition, with new artificial grass to combat the drought. Airstream was comfortable and well-equipped. Neat new mini-bar amenities. Explored the neighborhood and found a nearby park. Ate at Daily Bread, which was excellent - wanted to eat everything! Auto Camp management stopped by to check that we had... More

We loved it! Yes the living space is kind of tight, we were in #4 and yes you don't want to have to take a lot of luggage into the trailer with you. But the trailer and the site were wonderful. We sat out at night under the tree with the soft lights with a glass of wine and in... More

We spent two nights in Airstream No2. What a Lovely experience, very much posh camping. All we needed was there. Area is a long walk from town but short freewheel by bikes provided. Also there is plenty on your doorstep. Great Mexican resteraunt just up the road. Road can be noisy as you'd expect but earplugs provided helped drifting off... More
