“Special hotel, wonderful price”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

This is a very special hotel. The price is very good for what you recieve. Excellant location. Very nice rooms and nice staff. The maids are honest as well and keep the rooms clean. The hotel even has a pool and small work out room. The lobby always has coffee all day. The staff will go out of their way to help you. My mother needed an extra table and Graeme who is always so wonderful got that for her. My Mother always comes to this hotel and so will I when visiiting Santa Barbara. There are many nice shops, the mall and restaurants within easy walking distance. Also a grocery store. The hotel rooms have a fridge and microwave. I reccomend this hotel.

We been coming to the Sandpiper for the last 10 years twice a year and find the Sandpiper to be the best motel to fit our needs. Great location for us, reasonable price, complementary breakfast and friendly staff. I recommend the Sandpiper Lodge to my friends.

I frequently return to THE SANDPIPER LODGE when returning to SANTA BARBARA. Reservations are handled promptly and with care when I call Graeme who usually answers the telephone.
Victor and Shawn are also always available to answer and accommodate every need.
Housekeeping and maintenance is excellent.
Decor and rooms are comfortable. What more can one ask for with a fair price?
The genuine friendly service is very much appreciated.

Room Tip: The spacious bath dressing room is very nice and the rooms are pleasant in size. Over the past 23 ye...

Good for families. Rooms are large and have what you need whilst on the road: tv, coffee maker, microwave, fridge and free wifi. Staff was friendly. Complimentary breakfast is carb and sugar loaded, but does offer some fruit.

My boyfriend and I have stayed her numerous times and we absolutely love it! The front desk staff is more than wonderful, the rooms are relaxing and offer nothing but a piece of mind and comfort. The prices! The prices keep us coming back for certain. The Sandpiper Lodge has rooms that fit your every need/want and never put a dent in your wallet! That's a slice of paradise to us. We must say though- when we first stumbled on this lodge, we were first greeted by Front Desk Agent Graeme and he is the reason why we are now loyal guests! If you stay at the Sandpiper ask for Graeme because he is friendly, accommodating, professional, and will always ensure that your stay is enjoyable! We highly recommend this lodge!

My husband and I have been staying at this hotel for over 8 yrs now. Every time we go there, the Manager and the rest of the staff are always so nice and accommodating!
The rooms are nice and Sean the Manager is just amazing! We always recommend this place to all our friends.

Room Tip: The extended stay apartments are great and so are the suites. Perfect for families with kids.
