Convenient but unattractive location is within walking distance to groceries, restaurants, bowling alley, lots of nail salons.
One well-behaved pet is allowed.
As the cheapest hotel in town, there is a contingent of uncouth, foul-mouthed guests who may stand outside your window and carry on, or rev their engines in the parking lot, also right outside your window.
Our non-smoking room apparently had a history of smoking. The inverted ashtray labeled with a "smoking prohibited" sticker was a nice touch.
Kids like the pool.
There is something going on with the keycards. Our keycard failed over and over again, and we had to go to the office to have it recoded. The lobby was crowded with people recoding their keycards. The hotel had no explanation, and moreover, never did anything to confirm our identity before recoding the cards. The would have coded our card for any room we asked! Maybe we just look super wholesome and honest. We though maybe they are having a security problem there so automatically set the cards to expire every few hours? This was the most bizarre and annoying thing about the motel.
I guess I'd stay there again because it was cheap.
Had to make a quick trip to Santa Barbara for my son's school. Picked a bad weekend to find a room. It was so loud and noisey at this hotel. Cars were parked on the walkway right next to the rooms. Walls were paper thin. Rooms very small, pool had a lawn chair floating in it, the pool looked dirty. Will never stay at another motel 6, no matter what.
If you are in need of a cheap place to stay in Santa Barbara, this is it. This is a good sized motel in the middle of a business district. You have Highway 101 on one side of the property, and a busy street on the other. Next to you is a bowling alley and shopping center.
The rooms are small, the beds are poor to average in comfort. You can hear everything going on outside of your room which we eventually got used to.
The staff was very nice which helped the experience for us. The ladies at the front desk were very pleasant and we really appreciated that. Also on the positive side, there is no shortage of restaurants that you can walk to.
Just remember the title of this review and know that there's a reason you're paying less to stay in such a pretty town.
