This weekend we decided to skip the Halloween festivities and head north to Santa Barbara landing at The Goodland Hotel. An amazing boutique hotel that describes themselves as a California cool hotel featuring 158 eclectic guest rooms with a dash of surf-culture nostalgia. A surf lodge meets chic boutique hotel. Rooms that are covered in interesting textiles with record players and vinyl, great food from Chef Derek in their Outpost restaurant, an airstream named Rita that sits in the parking lot, and a DJ that played by the pool. I mean...who doesn't love listening to The Smiths and The Cure while sipping a margarita?
Just under 2 hours from Los Angeles, it's an easy drive for a quick weekend getaway. If anything, just head up to check out the decor. Great job, Goodland! We'll be back.
