Spend a night on Motel 6, State Street again. Have been there before and will definitely come back. It's just a nice experience - everything works, is clean, the lady at the reception is so welcoming, gives you all the right information in a quick and polite manner, and at the same time makes you feel you're a special guest...

Stopped by at the Motel 6 (not necessarily my first choice) and they had one room left, so I took it... And guess what... The room was niiiiice. Newly renovated with hardwood floor, nice clean bathroom and also the Lady at the... More

People need to rate this Motel based on it being a Motel 6, not the Ritz-Carlton. This property has obviously had some recent updates done to the rooms. The property and room were clean. Rooms are on the smaller side, so instead of running the air all night, we just ran the fan and that worked out perfect, it kept... More

Chose this place because of the price compared with nearer the beach, and was happy with the choice. The room was a good size and was clean. No coffee machine, but we were only here for one night so not a big problem. The breakfast was O.K. Plenty of inexpensive places to eat in the area, and very easy to... More

Not that much to say about a small and non special place like this. Room is small for 2 people but manage to fit 2 double beds in so 4 people. The room was so small we were scared to turn the AC on in case we would get sick, and it made a lot of noice. No coffee in... More

We spent a night here mid-week while helping my son. I can't remember when I last stayed in a more basic hotel. There is no closet, just two pegs (only one of which was there) and two open shelves in the bath. One side of the bed had a fixed table, and there was a fixed table and chair. I... More

We stayed for two nights to take a look around SB. The hotel was right located at the main street through SB, it wasn't noisy at night, but walking to the beach would take more than 1h - but the motel had an outdoor pool! The room was small and clean. Unfortunately the bathroom had a swinging door and wasn't... More

We stayed here for one night while traveling from Los Angeles to San Francisco. The staff provided good service. We were assigned a room at the upper floor as we requested in the booking. And understanding that we are tourists, she provided us with a map of Santa Barbara showing all the attractions in the region. She also gave us... More

Nice person at front desk -- got a remodeled room, which is a good start for Motel 6, but they really need to keep the non-smoking rooms non-smoking -- my room kind of stank (from previous smokers). I looked at another non-smoking room, but it stank in the same way. I wish they could provide a few extra blankets in... More

This is the 4th-5th time we've stayed here. As always, the location is great...a long hike to downtown (about 4 miles-I did it!) but with a car..no problem, and it is easily within walking distance to many upper State St restaurants///shopping mall. Rooms are small..but remodeled, and nice flat screen TV. A real plus for me was they had HBO... More
