“One night stay”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Nice beds, clean bathroom.
There's some snacks, juice and coffee for breakfast at the reception.
Walking distance from Stearns Wharf and restaurants.
Good place to spend the night when you're driving down the PCH.

Stayed May 2013, travelled as a couple

I stayed for 2 nights a few weeks ago. It is yes, a motel. It is not the Four Seasons and doesn't have a spa facility nor restaurant, concierge nor valet parking. So given the right frame of mind now, it was a really good stay. The management is friendly and does a wonderful job of meeting all your needs. They keep all the rooms very clean and in good working order. I got an awesome deal on the rates, so I can't even compare that, but it was in a super good location, 2 very short side blocks to the beach. Which is even better than being on the frontage road as this Days Inn was very quiet. No noisy partiers or loud parkinglot noise so we had pretty good nights' sleep while there. The breakfast iteme that were available were great quality and tasted fabulous. The A/C worked fine and the fridge in the room came in handy. Basically, the stay had all the basics that you would want and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again anytime I come over for another beach weekend.

Room Tip: Call ahead to be sure you get a room with the bedding arragement yu need. There are kings, 2 Q, and...

Quite a large room, very clean. You get what you pay for, we werent looking to spend a lot of money on accommodation and thought this hotel was very reasonably priced and suited our needs. Great location, walking distance to everywhere. Staff were very friendly and free carparking was a bonus.

We booked a room for 4 people (2 couples) and we were happy to get a room with 2 seperate sleeping rooms. The staff was extremely friendly and the hotel is at walking distance to santa barbara Beach. We were also allowed to leave the car for the day in the carpark of the hotel even after check out - that was very handy and nice form the hotel management as parking is not free in santa barbara. another good point for the hotel. well done

The room we stayed in was very small but clean and certainly adequate for our needs. The bed was comforatble but I didn't particularly like the pillows, They were very thick and firm, so that if you lay on your back your head was pushed forward. Soundproofing between the rooms was not great, we could certainly hear our neighbours who were not being particularly loud. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and the location of this motel couldn't have been better. It was in walking distance to both shopping and the water. The breakfast was poor, just pastries wrapped in cellophane, nothing healthy. In all the motel was clean and adequate.

I was impressed by the cleanliness of the room. We stayed there on Father's Day after deciding to stay in town on our way home from LAX. We'll definitely stay here again whenever we go back to Santa Barbara. I loved that we were able to walk downtown to the different restaurants from our room.
