If you want to have a get away to Santa Barbara, but don't want to pay $500 per night...this is the way to go...only 15 minutes from Santa Barbara. Close to the beach. Place to rest before you go out on the town.

We had no issues with our stay at this motel 6 however. Based on the photos I felt the Roma looked roomier than they really were and the beds were full size as opposed to the queen that I had booked. As far as the cleanliness of the rooms; no complaints. This stay was the first night of our spring...

We stayed there for a couple of days, the motel is not bad and our room was clean and colourful. Phone reception wasn't great and we had to pay for the wifi since there isn't much you can do without it. The cheapest option worked fine for browsing the internet and chatting online. The place is noisy though, being close...

We booked last minute and picked out this Motel 6 mainly due to the fact that we'd stayed there last year and had no problems or complaints with the place. Just like last year we had two rooms, one for my wife and I and one room for our guests....right from check in, things weren't right. We were asked if...

Pleasant greeting, easy parking, good directions to room. Nice furnishings for a budget motel and wood like flooring is an improvement over what i remember from any budget motel. Nice shower, clean and newer towels. The room was very clean. Great first impression and even the second day it was in good shape. Makes me want to come back.

I keep telling myself I'm going to avoid Motel 6 when I'm looking for lodging, but I always wind up booking with them. In comparison with other hotels, my budget simply does not allow me to book motels that are a bit more high end. The Motel 6 in Carpinteria is very clean and well maintained. We were happy with...

I've not stayed in a Motel 6 previously and will not do so again. It is an extremely "budget" hotel. It did have a nice TV but beyond that, not so good. It is right next to the 101 Freeway and as such is very noisy with traffic all night long. Parking is free and ample and the property is...

This motel 6 is nice and clean, well maintained. C/in time is 3pm, so office was very busy when i arrived. Front staff very welcoming and checkin was swift. Christina, the lady working front desk, very knowledgeable in her suggestions of where to eat and what to do. Thank you we had a fantastic time at dinner. Room was clean...

A Santa Barbara local suggested this as an affordable alternative to staying 10 minutes up the road in SB proper, and it did result in a much more affordable mid-October trip. Since the reason for my trip was to visit a friend rather than prioritizing beach time or living well away from home, it served its purpose well. They made...

This Motel 6 has very basic accommodation. Check-in was friendly. The room was clean and a good size for 2 people. A fridge and microwave are supplied. The location is good for visiting nearby areas. The bed was very uncomfortable......needs a new mattress.....and the towels need replacing. Wifi is not included.....the cost per 24 hours is rediculous @ $2.99.
