Days Inn & Suites: Santa Barbara, CA, 3 nights
Type: Inn

Description: The modest yet comfortable Days Inn & Suites at 1601 State Street in Santa Barbara is conveniently located within walking distance of many main attractions of downtown Santa Barbara. Although it does not have a restaurant on the premises or some of the features of a full-service hotel, the Days Inn & Suites has been utilized by Road Scholar for several years because it affords our participants close proximity to the major cultural sites of Santa Barbara. You are only blocks away from the scenic beauty of Santa Barbara's beach and harbor area and moments away from seeing internationally renowned exhibits at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and Broadway-caliber stage productions at the historic Granada, Arlington and Lobero Theatres. You can also walk to many of the fine dining establishments for which Santa Barbara is renowned.
