With its palm-fringed beaches, red tile roofs and laid-back lifestyle, Santa Barbara deserves its moniker as the American Riviera. You and Fido will feel right at home at one of our Santa Barbara pet friendly hotels.
Featured in TV shows and movies, Santa Barbara's iconic Stearns Wharf offers locals and visitors an array of restaurants and shops to visit with their canine companions, who are permitted on the half-mile-long pier as long as they are on a leash and under the control of their owner. While you're at the Wharf, why not have a bite to eat? The Santa Barbara Shellfish Co. has outdoor seating where your pup can join you as you dig into the likes of oyster shooters, lobster tacos and coconut shrimp.
When you're ready to relax, head over to Summerland Beach, minutes away from our Santa Barbara pet friendly hotels. Open from sunrise to sundown, this beach welcomes dogs to run free or on-leash, depending on their owners' wishes. Fido will enjoy chasing the small birds that scurry away from the waves, while you watch for porpoises and seals in the water. A dog-washing station is available for a small fee to help clean off your pooch (and your feet).
