My planned itinerary includes 1 night in Santa Barbara, travelling from Anaheim, on the way up the coast. Unfortunately it falls on a Saturday in August and its virtually impossible to find anywhere in Santa Barbara within the budget. The only option seems to be Motel 6. Is it better to take Motel 6 and stay in SB, or are there any other nice towns within about half an hour, so we could spend the day in SB then drive on to our accomodation? Any hotel recomendations in the $200 range@ I've looked at Solvang, Ojai, Carpinteria and Goleta - any comments on any of these places? Any help appreciated!
