I keep telling myself I'm going to avoid Motel 6 when I'm looking for lodging, but I always wind up booking with them. In comparison with other hotels, my budget simply does not allow me to book motels that are a bit more high end. The Motel 6 in Carpinteria is very clean and well maintained. We were happy with...

I've not stayed in a Motel 6 previously and will not do so again. It is an extremely "budget" hotel. It did have a nice TV but beyond that, not so good. It is right next to the 101 Freeway and as such is very noisy with traffic all night long. Parking is free and ample and the property is...

This motel 6 is nice and clean, well maintained. C/in time is 3pm, so office was very busy when i arrived. Front staff very welcoming and checkin was swift. Christina, the lady working front desk, very knowledgeable in her suggestions of where to eat and what to do. Thank you we had a fantastic time at dinner. Room was clean...

A Santa Barbara local suggested this as an affordable alternative to staying 10 minutes up the road in SB proper, and it did result in a much more affordable mid-October trip. Since the reason for my trip was to visit a friend rather than prioritizing beach time or living well away from home, it served its purpose well. They made...

This Motel 6 has very basic accommodation. Check-in was friendly. The room was clean and a good size for 2 people. A fridge and microwave are supplied. The location is good for visiting nearby areas. The bed was very uncomfortable......needs a new mattress.....and the towels need replacing. Wifi is not included.....the cost per 24 hours is rediculous @ $2.99.

The situation of this motel is not good, it is not close to Carpenteria and not close to Santa Barbara, and is much more expensive than other options close by. Service at reception is slow at all hours of the day. Rooms are extremely basic, no micro, no fridge, no wifi - well the latter you can get for a...

The hotel had 1 non-smoking room with a queensized bed left. The rooms are renovated and look nice. The hotel is located next to the highway. During the night traffic does not get less and the walls are very thin. Several trucks and motorcycles kept me awake during the night. Which makes me feel even more tired then when we...

Terrible. Booked this as we were getting tired of driving and I was going to need wifi to do some work in the morning. Plus we wanted to see what all the hype was with all the ads down the highway and decided to give it a shot. Check in was annoying. The check-in guy had this attitude about him....

Yes overpriced, not too clean, and a bit run down, but it has a pool and is close to everything. We had to carry our bags upstairs some of which were rotten. It has parking but not much else. We walked back from the restaurant and saw a man in a wheelchair sleeping beside the road something we are not...

We were in Carpinteria for a festival and most accommodation required a 2 night stay. We only stayed here as it was the cheapest ($200!) for a night. The room was very comfortable and the front office staff assisted us by changing our room from a smoking to non smoking which was great. The staff were very friendly and if...
