Hi everyone!

I will be visiting my husband in Bakersfield this summer, but for a few days want to take our girls to spend a few days in more beautiful Santa Barbara area, so that they don't complain when we come back home to MA. The ideal place would be within walking distance to the beach, and under $150 a night. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated !
THANKS!

Stayed here almost 20 years ago and it was nice, on the beach and a short walk to Stearns Wharf - Santa Barbara Hotel: Fess Parker's Doubletree Resort and Hotel in Santa Barbara, CA, California Coast Luxury Accommodations. It will probably be more than the $150 price you quoted, but it was nice. You'll find all places near the beach to be expensive. Also Welcome to Santa Barbara's Stearns Wharf

In case you're wondering who Fess Parker is, he played Davy Crockett on TV in the mid 1950's.

The only place I can think of near the beach is a motel my mother owned from 1987-1991 it's by West Beach, Santa Barbara's most popular (and with good reason) beach. The new name is Casa Del Mar and they're at 18 bath st. The number when my mom owned it was 1-800-433-3097. There's also the West Beach Inn right across the street. And there's the Santa Barbara Inn at Cabrillo & Milpas. Stay Away from Ocean Palms. It's right on Cabrillo but it's a dump and the desk clerks are rude. I would advise you check these hotels and any others on tripadvisor.com though.

My wife and I have stayed at The Cheshire Cat a couple times. I would check it out. It was a real Bed N Breakfast, no TV, no radio, no computer accessibility, etc.. If you go here you better be able to entertain yourselves with each others company because that is all you will have, except for beautiful rooms and great service. It has been several years so please check it out thoroughly. Sometime these places change ownership and it really is about the owner and their attention to details.
