Most hotels in Santa Barbara are quite expensive,it's a lovely area. This hotel was very clean it had a ,small but perfectly adequate swimming pool and gym. You would need to drive into Santa Barbara but it's really not far, 5 10 mins and there is plenty of parking. A lot of it is free or very reasonable. Very pleasant... More

We made a last minute trip to Santa Barbara and this was one of the few affordable hotels still available on a weekend. The price was significantly less than other hotels in town, most likely due to the location some distance from downtown and the beach. The room was clean and comfortable. The queen sized bed seemed larger than a... More

The staff were very welcoming and helpful with any questions we had. The rooms are really spacious with big TV's and a fridge. Beds were comfy and powerful aircon that had the room cool in no time. There is also lots of free parking.

When we arrived and were given the keys to our room, we noticed the door to our room was wide open. We thought the cleaners were still in cleaning, but there was no one in the room, which we thought was odd. When we closed the door, we had a horrible cleaning odor. After a day, we realized the cleaning... More

Stayed in a double room with two beds. Beds seemed larger than a standard queen which was nice! They were also super comfortable! Location was great, right on State street, close enough to be near the hot spots but far enough away that it was quiet. Great places to eat within walking distance. Room was clean, free wifi, and also... More

We stayed at the Sandpiper Lodge on the first leg of our 2 week road trip. The drive up from Santa Monica took under 2 hours and before we knew it we were driving through the centre of Santa Barbara which, in itself, is a gorgeous Spanish influenced seaside town. The Sandpiper Lodge is located on State Street which is... More
