    About

    Nestled in the trendy Funk Zone neighborhood, The Wayfarer hotel in downtown Santa Barbara continues to win over guests’ hearts with its chic-hipster style, kind service, complimentary hotel amenities, and central address along State Street. Newly opened in 2014, this Santa Barbara boutique hotel offers 27 private hotel rooms and 4 shared hostel rooms, as well as plenty of fun on-site amenities - including Corn Hole, Ping Pong, and a Giant Jenga Set!

    At The Wayfarer Santa Barbara, we're all about having common spaces for our guests to be social. That's why our downtown Santa Barbara hotel offers a spacious community kitchen and dining area for guests to use at their leisure. Located adjacent to our lobby - where you'll meet Lloyd our life-size giraffe - our kitchen and dining room is the place where complimentary breakfast is served every morning from 7 – 10 am, which features fresh bagels, toast, cereal, yogurt, Peet’s Coffee, and fruit. You'll also enjoy our year-round heated pool, surrounded by large inflatable red chairs that just crave an Instagram picture (which is easy with complimentary Wi-Fi), as well as fun on-site events like hosted pub crawls with Wayfarer-exclusive drink specials.
