Santa Barbara Kid Friendly Hotel Guide

It’s not a family vacation if you can’t bring the entire clan with you, is it? Next time you have a few days off from work and want to plan a getaway, don’t leave the kiddos with your parents or your slightly dotty Aunt Edna. Instead, set a course for an adventure the entire family will love, and book your stay at one of the kid-friendly hotels in Santa Barbara.

Your little ones are the most important thing in your life, so make sure they enjoy your accommodation as much as you do. From a kids-only room service menu (macaroni and cheese, anyone?) to special perks like in-room video game consoles, these lodgings provide a little something extra for the smaller members of your crew. The best kid-friendly hotels in Santa Barbara may even offer playgrounds, kiddie pools, and other activities geared toward youngsters. What’s more, some hotels provide a babysitting service so you can get a few hours to yourself—you might not want to admit it, but grown-ups need a little rest during vacation, too!

Whether you’re traveling with one small child or hauling around your entire extended family, Travelocity is here to help you out. Let us hook you up with Santa Barbara kid-friendly hotels that will keep your youngsters happy without doing irreversible harm to your wallet. You can save up to $537 when you bundle your flight and hotel together, so what are you waiting for? Grab your family and get ready to explore!
