I was impressed by the updated design in the interior. Fun! All the basic amenities were there, with a pool to boot. This is an outstanding value. There was quite a bit of noise leakage from the walkway outside our door. The room key had to be reset a few times. The coffee came in styrofoam cups (but hey, it was free!)
Basic hotel, nothing fancy. Personel was not very friendly. Carpinteria is a nice town with good restaurants. Room was very basic, rooms looked steril.
location, parking plastic flooring in thne bedroom
Great surprise when we arrived very late there!!! very welcoming staff and there's a pool!! And in the morning whoa the beach is at 1 minute walking!!! nothing to say
We booked a room through Booking.com via KAYAK . There was no opportunity on the site to specify a non-smoking room. It never occurred to me while I was making the reservation that I would need to specify. The clerk said we should have reserved through the Motel 6 site. As they were full except for one non-smoking room, we had to choose whether to stay in a tobacco permeated room or cancel our reservation & find another place to stay. The clerk let us into the room to help us decide if we could tolerate it. When we decided we had to find another hotel, they cancelled our reservation without any problems. This is not a critique of Motel 6. I am very disappointed that Booking.com and/or KAYAK didn't allow me to choose a non-smoking room in advance or at least redirect me to the Motel 6 reservation site where I could have selected a non-smoking room.
I have had to stay for an extended period of time. I am a newly discharged (honorably) army vet with ptsd alongside many other issues. The staff has been so amazing both to me in general, and understanding the challenges I may face. While being apart from my family, the staff and facility has provided me with a temporary place of solice.
The hardwood floors in the rooms were very nice, as was having the towels in little cubbies.
It was quite. It was way overpriced.
Free parking close to accommodation, Motel easy to find, several nearby restaurants, free coffee in reception area
The location was decent, on the main setup and near the beaches. Broken ice makers, hot stuffy rooms, beds were as hard as a rock. Rooms were attempted to be updated, Ikea style- but much was broken and flimsy. Bare bones, for $100+/nt. I expect more.
Bed mattress was extremely firm...a quick continental breakfast would be nice for over $100/nt.
Phil is a very nice man. 6am Sunday morning , the room door is opened by someone violently and the dead bolt stopped them. As I bound out of bed to proctect my wife I am transformed into a lion protecting its lady against a Trump son with a rifle trying to cut my tail off. I fling the door open with a rage looking for someone to fight. No one there. Fall back asleep, 7 am.. phone rings RING/RIiiIiinG. I pick up the phone. No one there. !!! 8 am, the maid enters to clean the room, boom, dead bolt saves the day again. We are tired. I check out and let the desk man know what happened. He was nice and promised to have management call me. I am still waiting for the call. I feel like we are just throw away items like so many trump supporters grabbed in the puśśy. We won't be staying there again. Phil was very nice though.
I didn't like anything. The internet priced it $20. more than the sign hanging outside the motel. The bed smelled like pee or butt...a mixture of it. We left after being there for only a couple hours...drove back home 3 hours away with no sleep because the smell was disgusting. The television had really bad quality picture and sound.
Price for the area
It was close to the event I was attending. No amenities, no coffee, no fridge, had to ask for blankets, not much for the money.
Easy check-in and check-out. Modern facilities and décor. Missing basic amenities such as a blow dryer, iron, shampoo/conditioner, mini fridge, etc. that motels typically offer. Would have been nice to at least have a blow dryer.
Very modern and clean. Accessible and an easy 15 minute drive to downtown SB. The faucet in the bathroom was a bit wobbly but everything else was just fine. Good bang for your buck!
