Stayed in this motel for 1 night continuing our trip down the PCH. Glad it was only 1 night. The room was tiny to accommodate four of us, but this would have been ok provided it was clean. It was not - had we booked more than the 1 night, I would definitely have complained. On the plus side, is its location, so for 1 night it is doable. It is not cheap, we had stayed in far cheaper and better quality places during our road trip, and some of the local clientele were 'questionable'.

We booked this last minute, and the price was good and when we arrived the room was more than adequate. Just minutes from the beach, and a short drive to the main areas of Santa Barbara, this provides a well priced option. No breakfast or any frills, it'sa comfortable room to hang your hat.

We were in Santa Barbara to see family and stayed at the Motel 6. This is the first time we have stayed in this hotel. If you are looking for budget accommodations close to the beach and right in Santa Barbara, it doesn't get better than this. The hotel is one block from the beach. Our second story room even had an ocean view out of the corner of one window. Rooms are small but space is used efficiently. Do plan on bringing your own shampoo and conditioner as they only provide soap. Rooms are very clean and well maintained and we had a refrigerator. I wouldn't plan on staying for a long period of time but short stays are okay. WiFi is extra if you do not book with AARP.

Room Tip: This is not a busy street so any of the rooms should be pretty quiet. If you want to have your car parked right by your room, you may want to ask for a room in the back as parking is limited in the front.

I stayed September 2013 with 4 other friends - we had 2 rooms between us. This was my first motel experience and to be honest, I didn't know what to expect. But Motel 6 was perfect. The rooms were lovely - we had 2 double beds in ours that were very comfy.
The walk to the beach was no more than 100 metres - so close. We walked into the centre of Santa Barbara in the evening which took us about 40/50 minutes. If you're not one for walks of this length then maybe find accommodation closer to the centre - but personally I found the walk along the beach front lovely.

We drove from Las Vegas to Santa Barbara without making a booking and arrived at 8pm and so were anxious to find somewhere. The first motel we came upon was Motel 6 and so were happy to hear they had rooms, not cheap at almost $100, we had stayed in other motels for much less. The room was very small, there was not much insulation between rooms , the bed was old and soft and the towels were like sandpaper. In all not a nice experience and certainly not vfm.
