Can anyone recommend a nice, romantic hotel within 25 miles of Santa Barbara that is truly oceanfront? Does such a thing exist, or are they all across the street? I have only been to SB once for a very short visit, and stayed at the Fess Parker which was not at all what I wanted. I guess I am looking for that east coast experience of in-your-face ocean with chairs and umbrellas on the beach. Is there any hope? We have to make another quick trip, and I was thinking of extending it to 3 or 4 nights for a little R&R if I could find something suitable. We are a quiet late-40s couple traveling either September or early October. Thanks so much.
