There were some Hispanic male staffs and they were so rude that I felt unsafe. The female staffs were all nice.
I stayed at this hotel many days, but one day my sheet was clean in the morning, but when I came back in the evening, the bathroom water was running in full force and my sheet had big sticky spots.
I like everything
Convenient to Santa Barbara without the Santa Barbara price tag.
Kind of dumpy.
close to my job
the parking are to small its hard to park
The shower could not run warm only very cold.
Room was very comfortable. Nice to have a refrig in the room to store food. Nice pool and spa.
Parking lot area dirty Hotel rooms facing the 101 hightway was very loud. Should have installed triple pane rather then double pane windows in thye rooms facing the 101 haighway. Needed to upgrade television from CRT 19 inch to a flat screen 40+ screen. No microwave or coffee in the room. Coffee in the lobby was not offered until 7:00 am.
Best deal in town. Good room, good location. Good town to relax in and enjoy the scenery.
Entrance a bit tricky to find.
Clean, comfortable at a reasonable price for the area. Santa Barbara real estate community is insane so this is quite reasonable
Parking is a scramble Musical Chairs affair but the staff is cool and the move cars to find you a place. Book early because its a good value and fills up fast
I like the staff.very helpful
Living in motels on & off for the last 4 yrs. I consider myself almost expert at what the average person wants durring their hotel stay.Good staff & a clean room is important. Also feeling safe is a major requirement since I am a woman with children. And lastly, Cost & option to pay cash with only a small deposit.
Freeway is a little close... And the rooms don't have microwave ovens in them.
nice room, friendly staff.
Check in was friendly. Room was comfortable.
Location near down town Carpinteria and Santa Barbara.
If it's all you can afford, I get that. But the staff was rude and invasive; the whole thing felt dirty; and you will not get a good night sleep on those beds. They also charge for you to have visitors for any period of time, and they will stalk you with the security camera to make sure you're the only ones entering that room.
Very friendly staff Nice and very clean room fridge
Our room was facing the street so it was quite loud
It's comvionent location
No smoking rooms
Room and bed were clean, mattress was a bit weak, but still comfortable enough, freeway nose was present I. Our room (above office), but moving to a further back room was offered at a reasonable rate change ($5), but we're used to it so we declined and had no issues. Didn't try the wifi so can't comment.
No outlets on / behind nightstand, though there was a power strip on the dresser for charging devices.
The motel was easy to locate, right off Highway 101, and near beautiful sights, lovely shops, and good restaurants. The desk staff was helpful and efficient, the room clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. We couldn't beat the low rates on a Friday night. We were originally placed in a queen room in the front of the motel with a lot of highway noise. We asked to be switched to a quieter room, and fortunately, for only $2 more, were able to "upgrade" to a king room at the back of the property, which was much quieter. The premises were well-cared for and charming; the hot tub superb on a chilly morning. The room was equipped with a good working refrigerator. We didn't use the large flatscreen TV or WiFi, so can't comment on those. Generally, this was a GREAT value and served us well--a relaxing, good night's sleep on our drive from SoCal to the Bay Area.
Some highway noise, even at the back of the property, also quite a bit of noise--clomping footsteps and some loud music--from surrounding rooms. The room was equipped with a small fridge, but no microwave to heat food or water, and no breakfast served. And there were a number of cigarette butts around the hot tub--in supposedly "smoke-free" Carpenteria.
For an overnight stay, next to the highway, it's good.
The location of our room was great, all the way in back, nice & quiet. The king size bed was very comfortable and the price was great!
The price is the best in ventura county I found The staff was friendly the location is easy to find
The carpet in the room i'd prefer hardwood floor The ceiling And the bathtub didn't plug to fill up with water for bath instead of shower.
Sandyland Reef is a good choice for budget-minded traveler willing to trade off location & luxury for decent accommodations near more expensive locations. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean and functional, and basic needs are available within a 5min walk or drive.
The advertised discounted rate that appears on their listings and a large street-front sign was never made available in more than 10 nights on 3 occasions. In fact, no discount of any kind was ever offered or applied. The WiFi in my room was not always working, and the parking lot area usually had people using the picnic,pool, or laundry, and so was often noisy. Not too often or too loud or too late, just usually.
Nothing! I would never stay there again.
Stained carpeting, beat-up shabby furniture with the insides of drawers dirty so I wouldn't put my clothes inside, bear bones bathroom.
Pleasant staff, super clean room, snacks available to buy, free coffee in am.
My room was in the front and the freeway noise was loud. Parking was tight.
