At first when we arrived in Santa B we were a little confused, it wasn’t as we had imagined, but then again that’s probably because we arrived at midnight. We got shoved in the back corner of the hotel in a pretty terrible room (it was the last one they had) and of course this wasn’t the best of starts. We woke up the next day and decided to give Santa B the chance it deserved and also asked to move rooms, the fantastic staff (day time staff, the night time staff didn’t seem too interested) at our hotel managed to move us into a much nicer room. We explored the historic court house, we visited Henry’s beach and we even went for a sick night out. We soon started to feel at home in Santa Barbara and we ended up having an amazing few days. Our diet consisted of Acai Bowls from the amazing Backyard bowls, and cupcakes. But Hey we weren’t complaining! One thing that did surprise us was the weather it was around 22/24 degrees, I was expecting to sun bathe the whole time here but with the breeze coming off the ocean, it just wasn’t quite warm enough. I’m not complaining though, apparently the weather is the same year round in Santa Barbara and 22 degrees in the winter would be pretty sweet.
Yes, of course we would go back to Santa Barbara. We would probably go back to the same hotel too, providing we got a nice room. Would I stay in the Holiday Inn again…Yes if I got it for a good price, but I would certainly look else where first.
