Fantastic hotel, very central, walking distance to restaurants, the wharf and definitely the beach. Great service, the rooms were clean and fresh. The makeover of the hotel has been fantastic. Would definitely stay here again!!

My husband and I booked a last minute beach getaway. We were pleasantly surprised with the brand new hotel we arrived at! Blue Sands Motel had great location and enjoyable service. The best part was how fresh and clean the rooms were! We will be staying here again!!

This is a small motel that we stayed at for two nights. The rooms were clean and very nice and roomy. We had a full kitchen in our room. I'd highly recommend it. The location was very nice and easy to get to other places from here. The pool was also very nice.

We had a corner room w and ocean view. Rooms were really clean and bathroom was remodeled. Great ocean breeze at night. The person at the front desk was so nice he called and made reservations for dinner on the water to watch the sunset. Thanks for going to extra mile. Next time I come to SantaBarbara I will be staying here again!!!!

Stayed in a king with a fireplace, had a nice corner room with an ocean view. It was quiet, and the room was nicely remodeled and clean. I'm glad the weather was mild, as I can see the no AC as an issue on a hot night. Overall I would stay here again, assuming the temperature stayed 70 or below.
