    Wanted to stay in Santa Barbara for 3 days without breaking the bank. Marina Beach Motel was perfect. They are pet-friendly and we were happy to have our dog along. The beach is a block away and there are lots of restaurants nearby.

    No, there are no beds at the beach but it is very close to it (1 street). It has a small space in the middle of the hotel with some chairs and tables but not really to sunbathe, just to have some relax there.

    I think you should probably bring your own child seat. The bicycles are pretty basic.
