All I needed

For the price of the hotel compared to Others in the area, it was just what I expected. The rooms were newly remodeled and clean, just very small. Employees at the hotel, from The front desk to the cleaning personal, was very friendly and helpful. For a non-family, quick trip, this hotel was all I needed.

Inexpensive place in Santa Barbara

Staying in Santa Barbara is generally expensive. The Motel 6 on upper State Street is a clean, reasonable, no frills place to stay. The neighborhood is fine, I wasn't woken in the night by loud noises. You need to bring your own shampoo, but if you forget, you can just head down the block and pick up a travel size at the nearby CVS store. The room was simple but adequate. It's not fancy, but you're not paying the Santa Barbara fancy price.

Decent Value

Just a place to sleep, the room was nothing more. Not the cleanest joint and we asked for non-smoking but turned out to be smoking. Still for SB area it is cheap, and good location right off freeway. We came up after work on a Friday en route to wine country for the weekend. We needed somewhere to crash. This filled that requirement. I would consider it again.

Drive up to Santa Ynez, Solvang, Los Olivos. Short drive from SB and very picturesque. Kaylra winery is our fave.

Decent

For what we paid and for a short stay it was accommodating. However, I would not choose to stay at this hotel again.

my fault for not complaining .... however....

Checkin went smoothly except I was not given a receipt and didn't realize it until my return home the net day. The handles on the access to the lavitory and bathroom were so sticky we had to wash them; is there no maid service? When we went to bed there were hairs AND what looked like blood on the sheets; I tried to wash it but it was dried but couldn't whoever made the beds taken a minute and put non stained sheets on a bed? I had been around this Motel 6 since the 70s when my mother in law stayed there and I hated the rooms back then. I bowed to other family members to save a little money by not staying at the much nicer motel next door; this is a mistake I will never make again. Like I said it was my fault for not calling the front desk and complaining but after a busy day with family I was extremely tired and didn't want to bother. On the up side, the tv worked fine. Upon rising the next morning after practically no sleep because of the active bed above us all I wanted to do was go home; which is exactly what we did so I have no idea if the shower worked or not .... did have to wait a few minutes to get some hot water out of the lavitory tap. I could have mentioned all this to the front desk clerk (the same one who checked me in) but he was busy with what looked like an unhappy customer so I just said I was checking out and left.

Over night it's alright.

It's a bed, a bathroom and a TV. If you want amenities then you were not looking at Motel 6 in the first place.
