Typical Days Inn. Comfortable but in newc of updating. Rooms have fridges and there is a small hot tub that can be used. Breaskfast (continental) is included, but you collect from reception and eat in your room.

The old fellow who runs this place is a terrific guy- so decent, professional and warm. His wife is a talker but they are great people. Make you feel welcome. Rooms are not huge but extremely clean and well appointed- there is a popular Jacuzzi- well located hotel. continental breakfast to take back t yr room.

Few hotels can accommodate our adult family of five in one room, and this is one of them. We had a corner room, that although a bit outdated, was large with three bedrooms. The hotel is only one floor, and the office is extremely tiny (if you want their pastries for breakfast, plan on eating in the car or your... More

Stayed for 1 night as a stop over from Los Angeles to San Francisco. This is motel style place, looks a bit shabby from the outside, but very close to beach, pier, shops and restaurants. We stayed in a family room which consist of 2 rooms with double beds, a small bathroom with a shower only. Breakfast is included and... More

First, it's Santa Barbara....so don't expect cheap rates in summer or on holidays. That said, Days Inn has the lower end rates for an average motel. The location is great if you want to walk to the marina area, cabrillo St., and Stearn's Wharf. For State St, you better drive or uber. The outside of this motel looks like it's... More

Stayed here as a family of 4 adults for one night. Nice that there were two rooms, each with a double bed. Bathroom was quite small but did the job well. Breakfast was a bit disappointing, cakes, muffins and granola bars with a selection of juice boxes to be eaten in the room. The main attraction of this hotel is... More

We booked this 5 minutes before we arrived and were slightly disappointed when we got there as it was quite pricey but turned out to be like a motel. As we then told them we were going elsewhere, the managers offered us a good discount and we accepted. The room was small and the bathroom smaller but I liked the... More

The hotel was overpriced. Let me get that out of the way. I wasn't expecting anything fancy, but it was still overpriced. The bed was horrible, sleeping on the floor would have been more comfortable. The second day I woke up with neck pain and back pain. The shower and bathroom was roomy and clean. The AC seemed to keep... More

The room was very basic. Clean and good for one night but expensive for what you got. No pool only a Jacuzzi. Short walk to the harbour and beach. Free parking. Coffee and juice with muffins for breakfast.
