Some may think that if a room is anything over $30, it should be a 5 star hotel or something, after reading reviews from others on both Motel 6's in this town! Let me say first off, that I did check out a few dumps that were a block from the beach, but looked dumpy enough to afford to stay... More

Booked this room at the last minute on Motel6.com. It was a bit pricey for a Motel 6 but I took it anyway because nothing else was available. Check-in was a bit narly because their credit card machines weren't working. However, the room was very clean and functional. Had a great night's sleep. I would recommend it.

Great place to stay for a family weekend activity. We stayed in a non-smoking, CLEAN two full size bed room. Room had wood floors. Room was on third floor inside toward pool area. It is small but it fit our family of 4 well. Table inside for eating (sits 2). We needed extra towels as they supply for 2 people... More

I want to start this review by stating - if you are expecting 4star quality please stay at a 4 star hotel. Motel 6 is a place for budget minded travelers. If you keep this in mind then you should be okay. I booked this for the July 4th holiday. All the other hotels in the area were booked and... More

Stayed 2 nights here for a graduation event in June. Cannot recommend this motel due to its close location to highway 101... like 50 feet from the highway. Luckily I bring earplugs whenever I travel so was able to get some sleep. But just sitting the room, you can hear the freeway traffic all day and night. For those of... More

When we re-capture our wonderful time in the states, one night will stay in our heads as the most overprized, dirtiest and loudest night of this four weeks. We booked on priceline and thought, although the motel looked close to the 101, they would definately do stuff to the rooms to keep at least some noise out. At $85 (the... More

We stayed at this hotel the weekend of August 1-4, which coincided with Fiesta Days in Santa Barbara. We had reservations for 2 rooms, checked in late on the 1st and woke up to find a bed bug in one of the beds. Upon further search, we found bed bugs in both rooms that we had stayed in (rooms 312...

Good - Desk staff friendly. Bad - Towels thin, small, like Junior HI P.E. towel. Killed a roach on the wall. No toiletries except tiny soap. No hair drier, no coffee maker (coffee at desk in am). Remote wouldn't change channels. Very thin sheets. 2 total pillows. $84 seemed overpriced.

$2.99/day for wifi is no bargain when the download speed is .40 Mbps. The TV reception was only fair on some channels, & one morning the shower went cold after about 15 minutes. Besides those annoying but probably temporary problems, everything else was OK; the staff is friendly & the beds are decent. It's not great but everything considered, I... More
