“Avoid if you can”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We ended up staying here as everything else in SB was booked that night. Paid over $100 for that night. The rooms are in pretty bad condition. There is a strong odor and the whole place seems very dingy. The picture in this website is far from real. There is no pool.
Avoid this place if you can. There is a doubletree inn across the street. Go there instead.

Booked and paid for a room mid July2013 in person, before travelling to LA to pick up a friend. On arrival back in Santa Barbara on the booked date (2 days later) found the manager had rented my room to someone else -this is at 4.30pm on a saturday! She had no excuse and did not offer to find us alternative accommodation so we were left stranded on a busy weekend. I got a refund but absolutely no help - it was suggested by the next motel manager that she probably let my room at a better rate. So I would avoid this like the plague -totally unreliable and unhelpful

my relatives were in town and needed an inexpensive place to stay. I found this place for them, as it was convenient to my home and downtown. The worst mistake of my life regarding travel. This place is filthy. Mold in the showers and bathrooms, leftover food from previous tenants, carpets haven't been cleaned ever. If the county department of health had any responsibility they would shut this hole of pestilance down forever.

I stayed at Town and Country Inn with my family for three days. It was a wonderful experiences. Walking distance from the city center, clean, and I think the lowest price in town. The staff is very very nice and kinds. Look like the motel just been remodeled. I will come back again.

Blood? Spattered on the walls. Spiderwebs everywhere. Lights blinking on and off, and they were turned off. Crumbs (not mine) on the bed and floor. Alot of strange "activity" going on...and besides all that the energy was so scary and negative I could not physically stay in the room.
