Where to stay around Santa Barbara?

I'm setting up my itinerary for a trip in October 2014. Looking for a quiet, reasonable, safe, clean place to stay on a Saturday (one night only). We will be driving the PCH southbound and need a nice place to stay on our way from San Simeon to Santa Monica. I don't know yet if I find an option that won't blow our budget in Santa Barbara, but we will stop there for sure. Any suggestions (including a restaurant for dinner) will be appreciated. Thanks.

Check the Fess Parker in Santa Barbara

and let us know your budget

If yu want to stay a few miles away (closer to LA but still very close to Santa Barbara)

we liked the Hampton Inn

Get a room with a marina view

Breakfast included in morning

There are numerous chain motels and B&B's in Buellton and Solvang, about 45 minutes north of SB along Hwy 101. Lots of good dining choices too -- recommend the Hitching Post II if you're a beef eater.

Hi, well our budget is $100.00 per night and room. We are staying in Chicago, San Francisco and Death Valley. Those are very expensive already. So I need to find more reasonable places for the other nights.

Santa Barbara is an expensive city. Maybe the Agave Inn, Blue Sands Motel, Motel 6, Franciscan Inn and Avianna Inn.

Look for these hotels on Hotels.com and other discount sites.

Check out the #1 original Motel 6, just a block back from the beach. Reserve early. It's simple, but very popular.
