SoCal Costal Hotels for Overnight Getaway?
December 14, 2013 2:18 PM Subscribe
My girlfriend and I both have some time off between Christmas and New Years Day. We'd like to take a one-day roadtrip somewhere along the southern California coast, get a hotel, hang out on the beach a while, sleep, come home the next afternoon. We're located in Santa Monica, and on a pretty tight budget. Ideas for great little spots/hotels?

We've talked about San Diego and Santa Barbara, but are totally open to other ideas. I'm relatively new to the area, so you can safely assume I know nothing. Things that would be awesome, if possible: in-room jacuzzi/hot tub/roman tub; walking distance (< a mile or so) to the beach. We'd prefer somewhere relatively quiet -- We're looking for more "cozy/relaxing" and less "nightlife!" I imagine doing that on a budget during a busy time is going to be impossible, so I'm totally open to ideas that lack one or both of those 'nice to haves' but are otherwise cool.
I just read this previous question
, and it's sounding like Santa Barbara might be a good idea; any specific hotel recommendations?
