Sandyline Reef Inn is located close to the highway exit so that many location (for example Santa Barbara and Monte= cito) can be easily reached. The Downtown and the beach, that are very beautiful, are near the hotel.
the highway passes very close to this hotel and sometimes there is noise.
Nice hot tub
Area outside the room quite dirty
Like they say "you get what you pay for" I like that is close to freeway, good value for the money.and we weren't planning on stay in hotel much, we were gone all day. Office manager was nice.
Bathroom smelled like pee, towels were stainend.
Kingsize beds in the back are quiet, all queens in the front to the highway,so louder. Everything was clean, bathroom seemed newly renovated. Bed and room were comfy. Good access to beaches and H1
We stayed only two nights and just for sleeping, nothing negative, didn't tried the pool etc
Location is good, and it'a reasonable. Close to beach, not so far from santa barbara.
The toilet doesn't flash.
Very safe hotel and comfortable beds.
The cleanliness and the updated decor in what is obviously an old establishment. The jacuzzi and pool were very clean and well maintained. It was close to where I wanted to be in the downtown area of Carpenteria and despite the fact that it was Fiesta Days in Santa Barbara and everyone else had raised their prices outrageously, this was still a modest priced motel even with their price raise.
The bed was not comfortable. Fortunately because it was warm I slept on top of the comforter which helped make the bed tolerable.
near the sea , it was 4th o july not easy to find hotel in a short notice . so it was lucky to find one with that price , i wanted to stay closer to the cetre ....it was not easy so it was good option
The room a bit small , the stairs
After enduring a really small room that badly needed a paint job, I woke up to bug bites everywhere! Further, it is outrageously overpriced for what you get.
It was a reasonable price
It was pretty cramped and there were ant in the bathroom, lots of ants.
They did a good job in refurbing the motel.
There were no comforts, no clock, no lamps, no shelves in bathroom for toiletries, no smoke alarm, only one chair (not comfortable)
It's a very simple but well maintained place, and they were renovating the floors, so it will look even nicer soon. There's a pool and also a table with chairs so you can have a snack outside (always nice). the rooms were clean and luckily we didn't get the front ones, so it was pretty quiet too. Wi-fi worked better than most motels I've been in California!
The shower wasn't very good, and the towels, oh my, they were thin and very rough. No breakfast…
The king room was small but cozy and the noise factor was next to none even though the motel was full.
Would really have preferred to have a microwave also. The room had a nice size frig.
An old room, towels were so overused that they looked dirty.
Pool, jacuzzi & BBQ area
I liked the layout of the room, while small it was still comfortable. The bathrooms were really nicely decorated and clean. Clean bedding and.almost soundproof windows. The hotel is pretty close to town, you could probably walk there reasonably of you are not sedentary.
Traffic in California is ridiculous so you have to give yourself plenty of time to get anywhere. The hotel was great, not their fault traffic sucks.
Nice swimming pool, confortable bed and nice tv.
The guy at front desk was very rude and had an attitude.
Close to freeway, very clean rooms, clean pool area.
No microwave and no hooks in bath room doors to hang your clothes.
Location was good and within minutes of everything, Santa Barbara and beaches. Rooms were clean. Staff was nice. Pool was good and has a spa.
Hotel was very dated. The wifi didn't work. No iron in room, no coffee in room. The office did provide coffee though. No continental breakfast! This was specially inconvenient because we had small kids. I also recommend getting heavy drapes or blinds on the windows.
Inexpensive place to stay, offer laundry facilities, pool was clean with hot tub. Staff was friendly.
Not close or walking distance to anything.
Simple and priced right. Quiet suited our needs very well.
Bed was a little soft don't expect a serta mattress just a basic clean room to lay your head.
It was close enough to the beaches but other than that not much
At 7:30 am they had cold left over coffee the rooms were very small no place for two people to hang our clothes Far too expensive for the place
every thing we needed were there for a reasonable price. You cannot go wrong for this price.
very honest people working there, my son forgot a small backpack, we picked it up 2 days later with all his stuff in there, thank you all!
Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Overall a good experience for a motel in a beach town. I would rebook here.
Parking lot a little tight and noisy. Staff distracted
