We stayed two nights on our trip down to family for the holidays and opted for the two-bedroom suite (well worth the upgrade at a very reasonable rate). The rooms were spacious and clean, thoughtfully decorated, and seemed recently refurbished. Location was literally a stone throw from East Beach and a 10-minute walk to State Street and the Pier.
The lady in reception was extremely helpful throughout our stay, pointing out local attractions that would be suitable for a young family and even wrote down detailed useful information for us. She was fantastic, a real asset at Blue Sands!
After we had checked out we realized that we had left some items behind and contacted them - they promptly found the items and kept them safe for us until we passed by on our return trip.
We'll definitely be staying at Blue Sands again on our next stay in Santa Barbara and can't recommend them highly enough.
