I loved staying at the San Ysidro Ranch! So plush and they took care of everything for you! So close to Montecito's Butterfly beach which is the best beach in SB, at least in my opinion! I spent a whole lot more then I expected to which was a downfall. The last time i was in Santa Barbara I stayed at the Sandman Inn (www.thesandmaninn.com). So elegant and affordable, I really enjoyed myself here!
