Nice hotel close to what's happeningWe had a nice, quiet stay at Lompoc Motel 6. Many restaurants within walking distance. The Mission not far away, as well as a wildlife preserve and parks. A nice addition this year was the Solvang Brewery, which has food as well as beer and games for kids and adults.

Nice for a short stayMotel 6 is a nice little spot for a short stay in the Santa Barbara/Goleta area. I remember staying here years ago and being satisfied and since then, it looks like they have renovated and the rooms are much better. I would stay here again but it's a motel. Don't expect anything fancy. It's simple ...

Close to Solvang and beachesIt was quiet and peaceful. The staff was super! It's not usually the type of hotel I pick but I was surprise how clean and quiet it was. The Pea Anderson restaraunt is next door. The price for the room was great for the weekend.

But close to Starbucks and other stores and restaurants. ...
