Bed was great and got a solid nights sleep. Free continental breakfast, gym and pool. Not noisy at night, walking distance to 7-11 and just a short drive to the... More

We only stayed here for a couple of nights but we really enjoyed out stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were big with a tv and fridge included. A safe was also available in the room. The pool and gym areas were great. Both were quiet and clean and helped us to relax. Plenty of food options nearby including;... More

We stayed on the upper floor. Very clean place. The staff was great! There was free wifi. There was a pool and hot tub. The area seemed nice with a lot of shopping. The breakfast was good and well stocked. There is an elevator for those on the top floor with a lot of luggage.

Upper floor is better. We stayed on lower floor and occupants on top were very inconsiderate noisy people banging on the floor. Front desk staff were not thorough in making arrangements to combine 2 separate reservations that we had. Such an inconvenience and uncaring and smug attitude by staff.

I went to Santa Barbara for a weekend meeting and didn't want to spend a lot for a room. I found a very good price for the Sandpiper and thought I would get what I paid for. The room was large and clean and had all the amenities. There was a decent free breakfast and good service. I got more... More

This is one of the cheaper places to stay at the top of state street about 6 miles from the beach. On check in the receptionist was friendly and helpful especially when we were given a gloomy corner room, she changed it immediately on request. The room was spacious, clean and tidy, and then bed was large and comfortable, there... More

Stayed in a two bedroom suite with the kids. We were tired after driving up from Anaheim via Santa Monica. The check-in staff were friendly and efficient, the room was great and we felt immediately relaxed, particularly after a dip and the pool and hot-tub. The general surroundings of the hotel are ok - a few shops and restaurants. The... More

When we arrived at the hotel we were checked in quick and easy by the friendly staff. When we arrived at the room it was nice and very spacious however it wasn't that clean as there were empty wrappers on the floor near the bed which must be from previous guests. The rooms had all the basic amenities including an... More
