So, this is a rather different blog entry for me. It’s not exactly about a camping experience, but it was a neat enough find that I wanted to include it with our other Airstream memories.
When we travel, we always try to stay in Kimpton Hotels if they’re available in the area. They’re fun, boutique hotels and each one has its own distinct personality. We were traveling to Santa Barbara this spring and saw that the city in fact had two Kimptons to choose from. One, more upscale, was located on premium real estate right in the downtown area. The other was in the close suburb of Goleta – a ten minute drive down the road. The choice was easy after a bit of research and you’ll see why!
The Goodland Hotel is a two-story hotel/motel that was probably at one time a Super 8 or Holiday Inn. This looks like a place we would have stayed on a road trip when I was growing up! The Kimpton bought it recently and remodeled it with a funky retro vibe – Complete with a 1967 Airstream on property!
But….the real reason we stayed here was…
The Airstream is open for guests to lounge in during the days. From photos, it looks like parties are held here sometimes as well. We had funning exploring and snapping photos!
