Located just steps from Santa Barbara’s famous East Beach and within walking distance to great restaurants, the Santa Barbara Zoo, the Wharf, and the famed Funk Zone, the Blue Sands Inn is centrally located in one of Santa Barbara’s most sought after neighborhoods. Because the Blue Sands Inn is small, we have dedicated every aspect of the hotel to the support and implementation of local artists and artisans. From the hand milled, locally felled countertops, to the custom made furniture, and unique rotating art featuring new artists each month, we are dedicated to integrating Santa Barbara’s unique, creative community into the experience of everyone who stays with us. Fulfilling our commitment to the environmental practices, we pride ourselves on having the most green and eco-friendly property possible. And of course you can bring your pets! We hope you will come stay with us and have a truly local experience!
