When checking in we were told that tea and coffee were available in the mornings. There was only coffee. I asked where the tea was, and was told they don’t have any. They then bought out hot water, after I complained, but if you wanted tea you had to supply your own tea bag!!!!! Sorry, but the 83 year old... More

Dont stay here! It's dangerous, stabbings not uncommon. Rough place. Would never left my child stay here let alone my dog! Lock up everything! Staff stole from me. Manager was terrible no customer service you pay for wifi and it's slower than dial up. For $120 you can find nice accommodations. Rip off and taking your life in your hands.

It was clean and safe and remodel is nice. The upper floor doesn't have elevator access so if you need to bring in all your bags it is a haul. They changed my room but were not thrilled about doing so. If you have just an overnight bag, no problem.

I have stayed at Super 8 nearby and like this property better. The rooms have been renovated and are very nice. The pool is much better than Super 8. Negatives here: no shampoo, bad towels, only regular (no decaf) coffee in lobby in morning, no TV channel list. Super 8 has breakfast, however. Staff at both places are very nice.... More

Filthy floors, dirty bed spreads, mold in back of toilet, one hand towel for two people, small bath towels and worst of all, LARGE ROUND CRACK IN BATHTUB READY TO GIVE WAY!! I know that they don't provide any extra amenities, but for the difference of $20 more, you can stay at the beautiful Best Western Plus in Carpinteria, CA.... More

The staff are very friendly and accommodating, and the rooms are modern and, for the most party, cleanly. One cleanliness issue I found, however, was mold spots on the bathroom walls and ceiling near the toilet and shower. As for comforts / amenities, the beds are a bit on the hard side, and the towels are smaller than I would... More

If you need a clean place to rest your head with a TV this will work. You will be hard pressed to find a less expensive place in SB too. Pretty close to airport and there is food, stores, and a little bowling alley very close too. It was perfect for our short stay.

We don't expect much out of Motel 6 anyway, but when we needed to check in early to ready ourselves for a formal function, we called ahead from the road, explained our situation, that we wouldn't have much time and the event started at 4:30 and we would arrive at 3. The guy we spoke to, D____, assured us that... More
