We stayed at this hotel after a hotwire deal. The basic features for me when I travel on a budget are cleanliness, confort bed and hot shower. Not only Sandpiper has it all as they also have big room, big bathroom, very nice shower, a small gym, a pool, a jacuzzi and parking. Staff is friendly and the place is...

Stayed here for a night passing through. Compared to a lot of other places in Santa Barbara the price was pretty cheap. Room was big and clean. Free parking & breakfast. Just a short drive to the water & nice restaurants. Compared to other budget motels/ hotels we have experienced in USA this one was really pretty nice!

We enjoyed our bus trip from LAX and arrived in the afternoon. We thought that we could have had a better welcome from the girl on the desk but were coldly given our key and pointed in the direction. Nobody helped with bags and made our way to our room which we refused right away. It was dark and dingy...

Not knowing Santa Barbara, I left my hotel-fate up to the Hotwire Gods. Their choice... Sandpiper Lodge for $85/night on an early January weekend. The Sandpiper is a good value for that price. It's a typical U-shaped motel with parking in the center and rooms around the parking lot. My room was on the end so I wasn't bothered by...

Very nice hotel for the price. It is away from downtown and away from the beach but only 10 minutes or so. The room was clean, quite and comfortable. The staff was very nice and efficient. The breakfast wasn't much, cold cereal, bananas and some muffins. I would choose this hotel again.

Found this hotel on line and decided to take a punt considering the price. Right from check in which was very friendly, quick and organised through to the room being very clean, spacious and good amenities including a microwave. I couldn't fault the place. The price is fantastic and the accommodation can't be faulted. The shower has great water pressure....
