All the employees were super helpful and friendly and fun. the rooms are a bit older, but with all the other pros, it was totally worth the stay! I would totally stay there again, and I would recommend it to everyone. Close to the beach, zoo and park! Loved it!!

"Great little vintage feel hotel with modern rooms"
Ended up having a great experience at the Blue Sands. Its truly a throw-back to the motel - but the room was updated, clean, spacious and the bathroom was large. Its a walk along the beach to State street - and the times when wanted to dress up or return quickly we just Ubered to and from. Only con is a bit of noise from neighbor at the pool - but happy noises.
The hotel is nicely located close to the beach. I think it's over priced for a Motel 6. Went to Santa Barbara for a friends birthday and needed to stay overnight. The room is quite small. It's clean and there's parking. But for the price, it's not worth it. I'd go to a more star hotel for the price. Made reservations almost two weeks before the day and still got a huge price. Will I stay here again? Maybe if pinched. But I'll check around first. The staff were nice and helpful.

Great location, no staff that we saw. The room was huge and nice for the 4 of us. Only down side was our room was upstairs so it was hard to keep our kids quite so they wouldn't disturb anyone below. Also it was so cold in the room, we couldn't find a heater but thankfully there were a ton of blankets.
Stretching 1.6 miles along the heart of Santa Barbara's waterfront, East Beach is a quintessential California beach destination, with sand volleyball courts, a playground for the kids, a seafront bike path, and plenty of swimming. Located across the street from many of Santa Barbara's largest hotels, East Beach is also home to a weekly Arts and Crafts Show, held every Sunday.
