Very nice, but basic Inn more or less on the beach - only the boulevard between. Although basic, Cabrillo Inn provides what you need in terms of room fascilities etc. The Inn is around 1 mile or so away from Sterns Warf, and another mile or so up State Street to the main shopping areas. Overall good location if you come by car as it still allows you to easily get to a good selection of nightlife and shopping opportunities. Parking is limited, but can be found both right off Cabrillo Boulevard as well as at the Inn office. Continental breadfast is included in the price, but be aware that these breakfasts are very basic so if you got you mind set on a massive buffee this is not it. Still good for some basic energy in the morning bagels and pastry, a few juice options and surprisingly good coffee.
Overall, a very good choice while you explore Santa Barbara.

After a nice and slow morning we start making our way towards Santa Barbara. The hills around and south of San Luis Obispo are filled with wineries and farms. We decide to drive along the 101 freeway rather than highway 1 as both run inland from the coast (the 101 has yet to turn into the multilane mahem that it turns into as it hits Los Angeles) …
... had a couple of drinks, we wisely go in search of food. (Harder than you might think). Eventually after much walking through miles of shops and casinos,we manage to find a bar that also sells food. After we eat, we go in search of casino foyers to ogle the displays, but we must be looking in all the wrong places because although they're all lavish, there's nothing we want to see.
The streets are jam-packed with people and this is a party ...
... had lunch here by the waterfront and went to the other side of the bay for a walk where there were sea otters chilling in the bay and a beach. The walk was nice around the other side of the bay as it is so pretty and the surrounding landscape was awesome. We left here at about six to head on to San Simeon, once we arrived we showered and went out for dinner. We went to a grill place and ordered way too much food. We learn't that american ...
... Chinese over the road from Sandpiper Lodge.
We arrived about 8.30 and were the last customers for the night. All those already present were young and speaking Chinese. I'm guessing students at Santa Barbara University. The food was good we had a 'banquet'. Wonton soup, spring rolls, chicken skewers, fried rice (which was pretty much just rice) and 2 mains. We were home before 10 and in bed soon after. Long drive tomorrow.
Drove in to Santa Barbara today to see the aftermath of a local tidal surge which had happened that morning, we drove into the town to have an little walk in the rain, where my coat developed a small technical hitch ..... I discovered after 10 minutes that my coat is no longer waterproof ( o great) the fact that there was a small river running down my Tshirt made Emma laugh, so we ran inside and tested out a fantastic seafood restaurant out on the pier ...
