We stayed at the Blue Sands for one night and felt it was really nice. The room was well furnished, fairly quiet, just perfect for walking to the beach. We travel with our small dog and found the first floor room convenient. There was a small kitchen, good wifi, and a flat screen tv. Everything was clean and well maintained. We were able to park in the motel lot. My only complaint was that our room was just steps from the pool and the chlorine smell was a bit strong inside the room. However, it is a small hotel (just 12 rooms, I think) and others would probably find it very convenient to be so close to the pool! I guess that it was a trade-off - first floor ease for going out with the dog vs. less chlorine odor on the 2nd floor. At any rate, the location was so perfect, the staff was friendly, and we would probably stay at the Blue Sands again if we are in Santa Barbara.
