Dirty old rooms with weird checkins through the night for hourly stays, this place smells like a nightmare & is most probably only good for hourly rates. Keep your dignity & run--west beach has lots more fun, sun & the beach what SB is famous for--with dignity!! Very rude male employees who run this menagerie of vagrants!

These rooms were remodeled and not moldy smelling like others of this era. The best part was the grassy area outside of the rooms where we were able to drink our wine in the evening. It was only a 10 minute drive to the "Historic" part of State street.

I know the hotels quite well since I lived in Santa Barbara for 10 years. Even though the Oasis is small and not brand new I was very glad that I had selected it for my stay. The room was spotless and the Inn is within walking distance of several good restaurants. The staff was very attentive and I would... More

This inn was okay. It was much more affordable than most places in Santa Barbara, but it was not the nicest. The room had a stale odor but seemed fairly clean. It was dated, but again -- clean. The mainly thing I found disconcerting was the fact that when I pulled the covers off the bed, there was an ant... More

Plus: Cozy room, nice staff. Supermarket and post office right opposite the motel. The pool seemed to be clean. We decided to stay a further night and had no problems in expanding our stay, we could even stay in the same room. Minus: Only little breakfast, mainly with sweet stuff, but you'll get something else at the supermarket or in... More

Older fixed up place was clean. the breakfast filled us up. Highly recommended for the one day stopover. Tables outside foster contact with staff and patrons (though we stayed in the room.) Enough plugs for all the devices. Maybe I am easy but that made my stay.

We expected more for this hotel, based on website information and photos. We can consider location and room size as positive aspects, but, on the other hand... Bathroom, with a small sink wasn´t clear, and we difficulty to adjust temperatures in the shower, because tap need repairs. About breakfest: you have to pick it in the reception (front desk). So,...

We arrived in April and the weather was warm during the day and about 60f at night. We found the place well located. Good place to stay with grocery and restaurants near by. Clean and employees always there to help you with your needs. We stayed in a room near the pool. Breakfast is basic and ok by the pool.... More

I stayed only one night but everything was ok. Rooms are large and comfortable (I booked a room with a queen-size bed) and staff member was really nice. It's not so far from the beach (by car I mean) and the breakfast is good !

Stayed here while passing through the area. Could not believe the price of $75, so was skeptical when booking. Checked in early and our room was ready. Very nice front desk clerk checked us in right away. Gave us the lay of the land and even recommended a restaurant nearby, which turned out to be awesome, despite the one hour... More
