    Treats in lobby, no pet fee

    Very friendly staff and located a block from the beach. This is a small, quiet motel with plenty of off-street parking. We walked a block to get to the beach for our morning walk. Definitely would stay here again.

    Too noisy to sleep

    Motel was clean and in a great location, but there was a nasty domestic dispute in the room next to ours around 2 AM. Hotel management wouldn’t do anything about it so my dog and I checked out and drove the rest of the way home in the middle of the night.

    Great stay

    Room was very clean. Nice potty area outside with poop bags. Friendly staff. Quiet at night. Half block from beach. Nice long walk to State Street.

    Great location

    Although the room was small, it so clean. From the front of the hotel you have a view of the ocean. We had a room in the back which worked out find since the doggie potty area was right there. We walked to the pier and near by restaurant. I was disappointed that I was told the dogs were allowed in the pool area, then once we were there we couldn’t take them in. So we didn’t enjoy the pool.

    Great place to stay.

    Our experience was great here.
    The motel was very nice and
    clean. Our puppy loved it also.
    They have a doggy area for them to go take care of business.

    Clean and great location

    This Motel 6 was the best I’ve ever stayed at! The location is beautiful, just 1/2 block from the beach. A bit of a walk to State Street which was perfect as we enjoy walks. I’m sorry I didn’t get his name, but someone from the hotel called me the morning of our arrival day to let us know our room was clean and ready so we could check in early if we’d like. This was SO lovely to be able to get settled in early for our unfortunately short one night stay. The room seemed recently renovated with new retro style decor, very efficient furnishings, and clean white linens. Not a large room but perfect for what we needed. No extra pet fee and very reasonably priced. We will be back whenever we are lucky enough for another trip!

    Right By The Beach

    This motel 6 was very nice in the rooms. Dog friendly, staff was awesome. Would definitely stay again. The price is a steal for the location.

    Close to the Ocean!

    It's a Motel 6, so it was clean, updated and as advertised, close to the ocean! Plus we had a ocean view room, which was fantastic, too. But beware, they are small rooms with no real sitting chair or sofa, so not as comfortable as other hotel rooms. Coffee in the office in the morning, no micro or fridge, but adequate if you plan on being outside most of the time. Pool was closed for reconstruction, so no use of that during this trip. Overall not a bad place to stay on a budget and they are pet friendly.

    Motel 6 - Santa Barbar Beach

    Even though this location was going through some reconstruction work, we had a lovely visit. Both humans and dogs (we had 2) were treated very well. :)
