A very nice ma and pop type of motel within walking distance of Sambo's and wharf. The bed was comfortable and room was clean, even the bathroom! We didn't care for the in-room coffee so we substituted it for the office coffee, which was better. For all the accommodations available in the city I would stay here again for the...

Breakfast was basic, comprising coffee, croissants, pastries and juice cartons from the foyer and...

I recently stayed here as my daughter had an event at ucsb. EVERYWHERE was expensive. This 'motel' was $220/night. Although the location was good, there was a park across the street with many homeless screaming through the night amidst the barrage of cars going by. Our chain to lock our door was broken off of the wall and hanging on...

A smaller, nice, tidy and comfortable property. Great location - walk to harbour and wharf area. The lady on reception was very friendly and helpful. The hot tub was lovely too. Breakfast could do with some improvement, but all in all, good value for money.

Stayed for 2 nights in September. The Days Inn is within easy walking distance of the beach, shops, restaurants and bars. The rooms are basic but clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. Would stay again.
