Goodland Hotel: Relaxing on the Road to Santa Barbara Wine Country

Goleta is mostly known as the home of UC Santa Barbara, but the town just north of the university’s namesake city also makes a convenient jumping off point for trips to the Santa Rita Hills wine country. Visiting parents and wine-tasting tourists will find the Kimpton-affiliated Goodland hotel a fresh and pet-friendly alternative to the cookie-cutter chains along the 101, with a refreshing pool and surf lodge aesthetic. Eclectic, earthy decor and private patios make for a relaxed stay, and a record concierge will help select the right vinyl soundtrack for the visit.

Stay: 158 rooms and suites feature turntables, yoga mats and free wi-fi; the Good spa has a full menu of services.

Eat: Coastal California cuisine at the Outpost

Drink: Cocktails by the pool or in the Good Bar
