A bit noizy sometimes
May 14, 2015
Alittle out of the way but didn't matter much for us as we had a car.
Moderate cost compared to more central hotels/motels

Did not like the Flat only 2 pillows per bed. The Bedding was too old and worn out
Loved the Free Wi Fi and Flat Screen. Clean Bath Room with Window. Very clean white towels & wash cloths!
April 25, 2015
I found a roach in my room. But the bad part about the situation was how horribly rude and disrespectful the manager was
The bed was comfortable. I like the convenience of the microwave and mini fridge in the rooms.
April 25, 2015
Wi-fi was a little weak
Staff is extremely nice and helpful
April 23, 2015

Renovated bathroom. Good location. The building was nice.

Big room ... Comfortable
April 13, 2015
The carpet looked filthy and stained. To pay over $100 for a night in a motel right next to the freeway seems outrageous. The coffee in the morning was bad. I thought breakfast was going to be offered but that wasn't the case?
Upon check-in and check-out the girl at the desk was very friendly. The motel seemed quiet...we had a room further in the back. Some nicer remodels had been done to the room. Loved the IKEA sink....but need more storage in the bathroom, especially in the shower to put down shampoos, hang your bath sponge, etc.Also needs places to hang up the towels if you wanted to re-use them.

Had a room next to the road which was fairly busy and loud.
Located a short drive to carpenteria where the beach is lovely and there are plenty of restaurants and shops. Fridge in the room. Has a microwave and hot water available in the office. Laundrette on site.
April 9, 2015
you can hear everyones footsteps If you stay on the first floor -_- all night... and the staff kind of stare you down when you arrive or anytime you left
location. Guy at front desk was really nice !
April 8, 2015

April 7, 2015

Location and price and cleanliness.
April 5, 2015
Free Wifi wasn't working first night. Was fixed by following morning.
Overall stay was good. Staff were friendly. Close to beach and downtown Carpinteria. Just a 15 minute drive into Santa Barbara.

The showers didn't have hot water, had to have a warm shower
March 24, 2015
The only thing missing was an exhaust fan in the bathroom. Also, the ceiling light over the sink did not go on with the other ceiling light. It would have been nice to have an overhead light to shave or apply make-up.
We appreciated that the management does not allow loud partying in the rooms or parking lot which disturbs other guests. When signing in you are required to read and initial the rules. No pets and complete non-smoking motel and grounds were also a plus. A fair price for a good nights sleep. The staff was friendly, as well.

Unfortunately, I didn't sleep well because my back hurt; the bed was too hard.
Staff was friendly. The linens are clean and the shower water is hot!
March 19, 2015
There were bugs that looked like possibly bed bugs all over the cloth shower curtain, all in the sink, I didn't even think to lift the bed back and check. There was dirt all over the chair. The door knob was broken to the bathroom. I ended up sleeping in my car and just using the fridge for my food overnight. Do not waste your money here.
Couldn't say considering I stayed in the room for 20 minutes
March 18, 2015
The furniture in the room was trashed - really disgusting. Upholstery on chairs was filthy. Finish on cabinet ruined, and other wooden furniture all banged up and dirty. My shoes stuck to the floor. The place really needs a thorough cleaning. No hairdryer. I thought this was a very poor value for the money - paid $95+tax.
Easy access from the highway. If you stay in a King room at the rear, there's no highway noise. (Queen rooms are all at the front and I'm guessing they're quite noisy)
March 16, 2015
Not very bad complaint but I asked for a quiet room and they gave us the nosiest one ie one facing Highway 101. When I asked if they had something more quiet they were willing to let us switch, but they should have offered it to us when I asked at check-in.
Clean and well furnished.

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.
There were some Hispanic male staffs and they were so rude that I felt unsafe. The female staffs were all nice.
