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

Its a cheap, convient place to stay for the night. No fancy amenities and the wi-fi cost an extra $3. But its close to the 101 and 10 min from Santa Barbara. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable. No remote for the ancient television but we didn't come to Carpenteria to watch t.v. anyway. Our room faced the... More

This motel six is not remodeled and way over priced I dont know why Californians think you should pay more for less they all seem bent on finding good value I will stay at the state park next time although like everything else in California it to is overpriced at least its not on the freeway.

This motel is located next to Highway 101. Traffic can be heard all night long. The train horn can be heard in the middle of the night. The walls are very thin and you can hear the television and other people laughing in the next room. The motel is three stories tall and there are no elevators. If you check... More

Great value for you money, really close to US101, 15 minutes from Sta Barbara. Typical Motel 6 style, small but clean rooms, cable TV, AC and heating working just fine, but no luxury. A little bit noise, as the door is in front of the parking lot, so every guest with a louder car may wake you up, but thats... More

For all those who will stay in this motel please understand it is just a motel. We enjoyed the stay and the staff was very nice and accommodating. It is conveniently located near Santa Barbara and all the hot spots.
