“A good low-priced alternative”
Reviewed August 22, 2004

Went to Santa Barbara for a wedding and only were staying for one night. Few Santa Barbara hotels will honor Sat only reservations so we opted for Motel 6. Although reservation was for smoking rooms (only thing available at time of reservation), they upgraded our party (4 of us in two rooms) to non-smoking rooms. Nothing fancy and with a few problems - toilet needed some attention (they fixed it) and carpets a bit worn...but for the money A GREAT LOCATION...walking distance from the beach. Ours actually had a view of the beach. We also walked to downtown State Street...a bit of a hike (20min). Hard to believe that $100 for a room is a bargain but it seems it is. If you're looking for low budget and great location, recommended.

Considering how expensive most hotels are in Santa Barbara, we decided to spend roughly $70 (for 2) and stay at the Motel 6 near the beach. We had a block-away beach view from our 2nd floor room, and were pleased about how clean the room was. Although the room was not very large, it was certainly adequate. The free local and 800 calls were also added bonuses. Finally, I can't begin to say how friendly the staff were. We'd definately stay there again.

This motel resides next to other lodging, across the street from the beach. I am not sure there is another Motel 6 as close to the beach as this one is. The staff was friendly and the room clean. In my opinion, this motel is very easy to find from downtown. Unlike many Motel 6's, this one does not have an eatery within 60 feet, but I have no problem returning to this place.

Spotless. Best Location. Family Crowd. Quiet. Friendly Staff. Can't beat the price. Book it if your lucky enough
