“Oasis in California”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

I stayed here after being in LA craziness for three days and before heading to San Francisco for more craziness. I found the motel and city of Santa Barbara a quiet oasis among the chaos. The rate was one of the most reasonable in the area (although not inexpensive). My room was clean and quaint with beachy colors painted on the walls. As others mention, the parking was easy and didn't cost extra - only hotel on the trip that didn't charge me to park. The only problem if there was one was a little noise out back. There might have been a trash company behind it. If so, it didn't really bother me. I didn't come to Santa Barbara to sleep in my room all day. One suggestion for the owners: add a few benches for people to sit outside. Even the view from a motel parking lot is stunning!

First of all the most important thing to me was room very clean and roomy. The price was ok ,and the staff was nice. Plus what I liked is they let me check out the room before I paid for it and i like
that a lot. Also I liked it was Non Smoking and the room did not have an ugly odor or smoke smell.

My husband and I stayed there one night and we would have been better off at a Motel 6. Upon arrival I found they had cancelled my reservation. The man at the desk explained that they had tried to call me to confirm and since I did not return the call they cancelled. Come to find out they had the wrong phone number. After almost having a melt down they did find us a room. We dropped our luggage in the room and left for dinner with family. Upon returning about 9:30 we found no parking and the office that was supposed to be open until 11:00 was closed. We ended parking across the street at Denney's and prayed our car would not be towed. I went to shower and found one towel. Tried calling the office and of course no answer. The headboard was not attached to the bed and every time one of is moved it banged against the wall. The bathroom window would not close and thankfully we were on the 2nd floor. At 2:30 a.m. a bunch of drunk collage kids were outside our door yelling and laughing and of course there was no one to call. Do not stay here....it is old, dirty and smells. I wish I had read the reviews more carefully,

So , I'm a traveller and I have stayed in some awful places before and this wasn't one of them. By no means should you expect luxury, but its cheap and I survived the night. If that's all you want then you'll be ok. Everything is a bit backdated and there are pretty nasty carpets all over the place. It smells a bit too. Also it is a lot further out of the main town than I had originally thought, and the taxis were really overpriced to get into the town.
