Mom and I decided to travel on a budget from SF to Santa Barbara, and decided to try Motel 6 for the 1st time, not only in SB, but in Monterey as well. What a terrible decision! Motel 6 in Monterey (Munras location) was actually very nice, so I thought I had made the right decision to book the one in SB for $135 a night! Man, wish I had paid more for another place. The check in took over 4hs because they didn’t have the room ready on a Monday (they were short staffed), even affer that, the floors were filthy (I looked at my feet and they were so dirty that I took a towel and cleaned the floor myself and could not believe how dirty that was!). The room was loud and on the 1st floor, and we could not sleep with all the noise from the 2nd floor. If I had not paid it in advance, I would have asked to cancel my stay. The room was super small, towels were not soft at all, no fridge/microwave like other Motel 6. Also there were some people smoking outside our door and the smell got inside my room and I had to ask the front desk to ask them to smoke elsewhere. The staff was very friendly though and location is next to the beach, but I would not go back there. If you must stay there, try to stay on the 2nd floor at least.

You can not beat the location for the price. But you do get what you pay for. We stayed 8 days and our room keys kept not working. Then there is the no place to put your clothes except for you suit case. This can get hard with a child. There was 2 great staff members, the others didn't pay much attention to you. So while the location was great I would spend more for a better room next time.

Clean, small, noisy room. Pay wifi lousy!

Location: Within walking distance to beach. Most places are a short drive.
Decent enough for the price in Santa Barbara. Room was clean and neat if small. Room noise was a big problem since the family next door decided to host a family reunion outside their room (no, one would not think that would be possible. But I witnessed it!). The not-free Wi-Fi is not worth paying for. I did not get good 4G service either in the room, so find a nearby Starbucks or other place. Note also that parking lot is small and narrow.

Close to beach

Pros: Staff
Cons: Shower fixtures
Location: Quiet, away from main hotels, easy to get to beach, great spot for those willing to walk or ride bikes, others will have to drive
Modest accomodations but very neat and orderly. You have to pay $5 for 24 hrs. of better internet. Staff was great and always available. Quiet area. Shower could have used a little maintenance interms of how the shower wand was supported. No breakfast but coffee provided in lobby. 1 block to complete beach access. Parking seemed adequate And easy to access.
