Why Stay At Oceana Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara's 122-room beachfront Hotel Oceana, just steps from the city's historic downtown, is bright, breezy, and laid-back—the perfect mix for a SoCal escape.

The Scoop

Idyllic Santa Barbara, CA, founded by artists in the 1920s, is known for its easygoing vibe and unique cultural charms centered on the main thoroughfare, State Street, and the Pacific Ocean. The waterfront Hotel Oceana, a 122-room Spanish colonial-style hotel on two acres of manicured gardens, is the perfect retreat for travelers who want to explore the town on foot; many of the local highlights (including Stearns Wharf and the Santa Barbara harbor) are within walking distance of the property. Recently renovated rooms are done up in stripes and floral patterns, but there's no need to stay indoors. The concierge will organize day trips and activities, from whale-watching to kayaking, in addition to providing access to complimentary bike rentals.

Insider Tips

Santa Barbara is an ideal city for cyclists thanks to designated bike lanes and the flat terrain downtown: borrow one of the resort's complimentary beach cruisers, and head to the boardwalk for a ride along three miles of white-sand beaches.

Though there's no wellness center on-site, Hotel Oceana offers a mobile Indulgence Home Spa. Book two days in advance, and a staffer will treat you to a massage or facial in your room.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) which is approximately 98 miles from the hotel. Anticipate between 2 - 2.5 hours of travel time depending on traffic. You may also elect to fly into Santa Barbara Municipal Aiport (SBA) which is 11 miles (20-30 minutes) from the hotel.
