My girlfriend and I stayed here in Feb 2013 for 2 nights. The Hotel is located right on the beach, and a 15 min walk to Santa Barbara pier. On check in we were given some great local information by the manager, and were upgraded to a room with a fireplace, which was a nice touch. The room was a good size, with a large bathroom with the best shower we had during our 3 week stay in the USA. There is a pool, but we opted for the beach instead. The room was very clean, and serviced daily, and a good standard of toiletries was provided. Santa Barbara is a great place to spend a few days, a highlight for us was a sunset meal on valentines day at the Santa Barbara Shellfish Company at the end of the Pier. The Brewhouse is also a great place for craft beers, and has live music! The Blue Sands Motel is great value for money in Santa Barbara, which can be pricey!
