Welcome to Santa Barbara! 

Hotel accommodations should be made individually by each attending guest, as no conference related hotel is available. Below we have created a list of hotels near UCSB. The hotels closest to campus are in Goleta; those in downtown Santa Barbara are often more expensive, and you'll need to take a car or public bus. Attendees who will not have access to a vehicle, it is our recommendation that you find lodging within walking distance of the bus lines (11, 12x, or 24x) that serve the campus. Information on bus lines and transit is in the transportation tab, and some information can also be found at

Hampton Inn Santa Barbara/Goleta
Courtyard by Marriot Santa Barbara/Goleta
Hilton Garden Inn Santa Barbara/Goleta
Best Western Plus South Coast Inn
Kimpton Goodland
Super 8 by Wyndham Santa Barbara
Motel 6 Santa Barbara-Goleta

We also suggest looking into Airbnb accommodations, highlighting the proximity to campus by choosing to search rooms in the town of Goleta here. If you are interested in staying in Santa Barbara, and are okay with driving or taking public transportation, you can compare prices in Santa Barbara here.
