While staying in an airstream may be a dream reality fell more than a bit short! The location is not picturesque although it is convenient. The photos on the website must be from another location.We arrived at night had we arrived in day light and seen beyond the 4 or 6 airstreams to the rest of the trailer park we...

We just returned from two nights in AutoCamp units 4 and 5. The location was less than desirable, about three miles from the beach and on a main road. The units are actually in the front part of a rather sketchy trailer home park. Having two couples on this trip, we found there was no where the four of us...

It was great fun saying in a classic Air Stream trailer in a classic California beach town. Space is somewhat limited but after adjusting to the dimensions we found it to be very functional. The trailer was beautifully restored and spotlessly clean. the location was a bit of a hike from downtown and the beach, but Santa Barbara is very...

The area is a bit distant from downtown Santa Barbera, so location is not perfect. But the caravan we rented, no 2 in Santa Barbera, was in good condition and the beds were comfortable. I guess we got what we booked. But once is enough, caravans are small and being three in the caravan is a bit on the limit....

We stayed at Autocamp as part of a long road - trip through the West Coast. As such we have a large amount of luggage with us. I had booked an Aistream for three of us (and was convinced I'd booked a two - bedroom unit, but must have been mistaken). In common with other visitors we were disappointed by...

We had a great stay here. Stayed as a family of four (two adults, daughter age four, son age six months). The trailers are clean, well-furnished, and easy to manage. Check-in and check-out processes were both great. It's important to know that the camp is miles away from the downtown area (a 10-15 minute drive) and is housed in a...

Thank you for your thoughtful review. I know that we are 3 miles from the downtown tourist area and for some that is not close enough. I am glad that our cleaning standards were up to par. We do our very best to make sure each guest is happy and comfortable. Thanks again! Christi

The other hotels in Santa Barbara were booked up and we ended up staying in one of the Airstreams at AutoCamp. It was such a pleasant surprise. I kind of want to keep this place as a secret for myself but I try to not be selfish. The insides are completely modern and have all of the amenities you'd expect....

So much to say about staying here so I'll keep it short if poss. Firstly don't forget your final email from auto camp (very important) it gives you the airstream number and code to get in.

Excellent layout. We had everything we needed - and it is all done with style. Great for a family of four and surprisingly roomy. The outside space is great. While the location is not central, it's a quick drive or uber into town / beach and the surrounding area has some good places to get food.
