hotel is nice and cozy, breakfast is ok for what they charge, there is a small pool, and a tiny gym, simple but there is all you need right? close to nice stores, restaurants and if you`re not driving, you can get the bus in front of the hotel, n11 will take you downtown in 15 min.

Came here to spend the first night of 2016 coming from Solvang. The place is conveniently located at State St. Staff are friendly and courteous The room is large enough - two queen beds for my hubby and kids. It is definitely a perfect place if you are just doing a quick stop at Santa Barbara. Amenities are satisfactory -... More

Decent hotel, a little pricey, but seemed clean enough. I was only there from like 11pm to 10am, seemed like an okay place. Definitely not like the Ritz Carlton or anything, but a nice average hotel room.

We took two rooms for the five of us, and each room was terrific. The staff couldn't have been better or more helpful, and the breakfast couldn't have been more ample, balance or delicious. We all had a terrific time there, and only wish we could have stayed longer!

Exceeded my expectations. Clean, comfy and pretty room. Friendly staff and free complimentary breakfast in the morning. Excellent value for the money. And a quiet part of Santa Barbara but close enough to get the must see attractions. Definitely will stay here again.

When booking this motel we didn't have very high expectations and we were just using it as a 1 night stop over on a road trip. We arrived at the motel late, check in was not a problem as it was 24 hours, the room was very spacious even with 2 double beds, the bathroom area was also very spacious... More

My experience at the sandpiper lodge was a great one. It is in a nice area not to far from state street. Its located at the base of the mountain i enjoyed the staff. Melissa was great and super friendly had a great conversation with her about the hotel industry.

We stayed in Santa Barbara for a weekend getaway. The room rate was very reasonable. Location-wise it was close enough to State street and lots of shopping and dining. The staff was very accommodating and had some recommendations on where to visit and included a map of the town. Bed was a bit firm for my liking but my husband... More
