We loved the Sandpiper Lodge. We ahead a clean comfortable room and the grounds were lovely. The staff at the front desk were very nice and helped us out when we needed a large bag of ice for some medication.we would recommend the Sandpiper lLodge to others and plan to stay here the next time we are in the area.

We booked 3 rooms for 1 night and 1 room for 2 nights for a basketball tourney close by. All was fine, the woman at check in was darling, the rooms were clean (a little musty smelling), this is like a motor lodge from the 70's, but updated with a decent pool and spa also continental breakfast. The wifi is... More

My husband and I stayed here last night for the first time. We are both very impressed, and will book here again in the future. Our room was clean, updated with granite counter and table tops, fashionable paint colors, flat screen TV. The king-size bed had a top quality, just-right mattress that provided a completely rested night's sleep. Breakfast was... More

Needed a nice affordable place to stay while visiting from Chattanooga. The place is adorably dated, yet nice and clean. We ended up staying longer than expected on the cheap! There are some nice places to eat within walking distance, and a market just across the street.

I stayed here with my son and nephew during a whirlwind tour of southern California colleges. The boys loved the pool and breakfast. The beds were comfy, the space was big enough for all of us, and the supplied toiletries were appreciated. I loved that there was a microwave and fridge in the room, and that the wifi worked quite...

This is your typical 3 star american hotel. Check in was easy and the room was clean with plenty of space. The decor was basic and although they offer wifi it drops out all the time, which is frustrating especially when watching "netflix " during the jet lag stage.Its a good long walk into the town and we wanted a...

I'm staying here this evening with my daughter and was impressed by the cleanliness of the room and the price, so I booked it. Little did I know how horribly noisy the guests staying here would be. There was a group of middle schoolers who checked in to take up most of the motel. Running down the halls, yelling, etc...... More

After searching for 2 days for a family-friendly, clean, convenient, bang-for-your buck hotel in Santa Barbara, I came across the Sandpiper Lodge. When I say EVERYTHING was perfect, I mean everything. The room we stayed in had another bedroom which allowed us to accommodate the 5 of us...unreal for the price!! Exceptionally clean and quiet. Check-in took less than 2... More

We stayed here for two nights. Car parking is free and a delicious breakfast included in price in a small upstairs dining area. It is only 2 star hotel but everything was clean and shower was hot with good water flow. It had everything we needed. My only complaint is interior lighting was very dim making it hard to read....
