Stayed two nights here as part of a trip around California/Nevada with four of us sharing a room with two double beds. This room was one of the most expensive booked and had the least space by far. Stayed in 9 other locations and no where else charged additionally for wi-fi, which turned out, according to the kids, to be...

While it is a motel 6, we did pay $150 a night, they could have had a box of tissues in the room, or a coffee pot. The location is nice and the room is clean. I would not stay here again.

Stayed here this weekend for a wedding. Rooms have been updated to a mod/retro/modern style. You can tell someone is trying here, but it is still rough around the edges. Staff was friendly and helpful. You can see the beach out the windows of the top-floor rooms. The Santa Barbara zoo is just a 5 minute walk away. We paid...

Location for this Motel 6 is the high lite. There were 4 of us in this 2 double bed, room was just to small. It is really made for 2 people. The bathroom is verry small too. Floors need a better sweeping each day for the sand blows in under the door. Swimming pool is nice, kids they don't seem...

Having said that, please realize this is not a resort... you need to bring your own hairdryer, pool/beach towels, and shampoo/conditioner. I do this anyway : ) The largest bed is a double, so big folk may want a...

Although the rooms are a little small, and space for clothes and suitcases is a little hard to find, they have been redecorated nicely in a Euro-type style, we find they are sufficient while we are spending tme in a wonderful beach town where we are going to spend most of the time outside our room, anyway. Besides the rooms...

We used this motel as an over night stay and it served it's purpose very well. The Room was clean and modern, the staff were pleasant and helpful. There is plenty of parking, but if you don't get to park right next to the building you could end up having to park between large vehicles. All in all I was...

What a surprise! I use Motel 6 alot because I travel with three dogs. What a great surprise when I drove up to this Motel 6 - the reception person was kind and helpful and the room - ahhh the room! Designed for comfort in a euro-style way, new bathroom, flat screen tv and no carpeting on the floors. When...
