Motel 6 Santa Maria
Ranked #13 of 21 Hotels in Santa Maria
Reviewed September 11, 2010

Driving my daughter to UCSB and we needed a quick cheap overnight. If you just want a cheap overnight this works. The room we had smelled musty and the beds were squishy but hey, you get what you pay for, right? Overall it seemed clean. A key learning and a bit of 'tripadvisor': apparently the new trend in low budget hotels is that they do not provide shampoo. Really?! Yes, we asked the front desk for some and the answer was NO. Wow. So advice for you is to Bring Your Own Shampoo! My suggestion to the hotel is to add shampoo to their vending machine. Anyway, we are well rested, less money out of our wallet and on our way to UCSB, even if our hair is a bit greasy. (-:

I stayed here for one night while headed back to Sacramento. The location is right off the freeway, so it's easy to find. I made the reservation online (using my phone). You save a couple of bucks that way. It's really had to beat the price. The room was clean and well maintained. You have to purchase a internet access card at the desk. No frills and no problems!

Close the freeway, and everything you would expect from an average Motel 6. Had the usual suspects in the laundry room and parking lot, though they were not out of hand. Decent enough for the price.
