Fodor's Review

A half-block from Santa Barbara's East Beach amid fancier hotels sits this basic but comfortable motel, which was the first Motel 6 in existence. It was also the first in the chain to transform into a contemporary Euro-style abode following a top-to-bottom remodel in 2008. It's an incredible bargain for the location and fills quickly; book months in advance if possible. Kids 17 and younger stay free. Sister properties in Goleta and in Carpinteria, 12 mi south of Santa Barbara and 1 mi from the beach, offer equally comfortable rooms at even lower rates.
