I've stayed here three times but doubt I will return. This motel is conveniently located in Carp and near enough Santa Barbara. I like the simple utilitarian design of the rooms, with modern touches. However the beds are just ridiculously uncomfortable. The first two stays were somewhat manageable with only relative stiffness in my back in the morning. However this last time the mattress was so awful, I couldn't sleep a wink. The springs popped loudly every time I moved and jammed me in the back as punishment. So while I really want to like this motel, I just can't bring myself to return there.
