Nice stay at Sandpiper
Older but nice room. Comfy bed. Huge shower. Easy access to yummy restaurants. Other travelers there very nice and international. Loved the continental breakfast that was included with our stay. The cheese omelets so yummy on the croissants, made it more than the usual continental and really hit the spot. Checking in and out quick, easy and very efficient, friendly.
Carpets a little worn out. Smoke alarm battery decided to chirp in the middle of the night. Needed replacing. TV wasn’t working when we 1st got there but was fixed in no time.
Floors had stains all over. Furniture was shabby. And the smell was horrible.
This was the second time we have stayed at the Sandpiper. It is clean, convent to venues in the area and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again if we were in the area.
3 night stay
Nice place to stay. Clean,comfortable,convenient, and nice staff. The breakfast was good, not just rolls and coffee. It was the same all 3 mornings and it would be nice to have had different choices.
I called to check on my reservation and they said they could not find one. When I arrived, they still were not able to find it, even with my confirmation number. They did get a room for us and it was an upgrade since they did not have the room I reserved. It did cost a little more.
Decent hotel with decent breakfast and cable. Wi-Fi could be a lot bet
Bed was fine. Breakfast was fine. Breakfast consisted of heated cheese omelettes folded into the shape of tacos. They also offered slices of bread, bagels, croissants and English muffins. They had conventional pull down toasters and conveyor belt toasters. They also had small refrigerated yoplait yogurt containers as well along with fresh apples and bananas. The room had Cox cable TV. Had a pretty standard selection of channels not a whole lot but it included local news, each meal and some of the standard basic cable channels like ESPN. service was good too
The Wi-Fi was slow at times because the wildfires that were happening, which knocked out some of the communication lines at times. Is a newer generation of people start using hotels, cable TV should start being a lemonade it since it is a waste of money it makes you watch ads. It would be better for all hotels including sandpiper lodge to invest in faster Wi-Fi and ethernet instead.
Good for the rate
Room was cozy and coffee kuerig machine. Decent breakfast.
Walls are thin and our neighboring guests were very loud till middle of the night.
Location. Front desk staff was very helpful!
WiFi signal was spotty in our room.
Nothing Bad -- but Nothing Special
Everything was fine. No complaints -- but nothing was special about this place. We arrived late and left early so we were just looking for a place to sleep. The rooms were convenient, clean and comfortable. this was one of the few places in its price range that had a pool, free breakfast and Queen (as opposed to double) beds.
$200 a night for what was basically a Motel 6 seemed pricey to me -- even for Santa Barbara. The breakfast was a little skimpy: I would have like bacon or sausage to accompany the scrambled eggs and typically a Danish or sweet roll is included. The conveyor machine wasn't working so the entire breakfast room had to wait to use the toaster.
The breakfast in the morning was great.
This is not a 3 star hotel. I would say it's 2. It was really loud. Bedding was not soft. Old facilities.
Clean, practical, comfortable.
Very nice staff and nice room
Shower leaves a little to improve.
staff were very friendly, breakfast was basic but good. room was big and comfy. very suitable for our needs. shopping very good in santa barbara!
would definitely need a car, its not walkable to the city centre itself
Roominess, cleanliness, service
Breakfast could be richer
We got a little apartment and not only a room. It was awesome!
Good value for money ie overnight stop
Downtown Santa Barbara/ Beach too far from Hotel.Hotel next to busy main road junction
The rooms are ok, breakfast had nice fresh bakery products.
Very noisy! We were almost kicked out of our room because of some maintanance issues, and the reception employee had no idea of what was going on. We didn't receive any explanation, anything. It was our departure day, but still was not planning to wake up in that way. Also, you need a car to get downtown, is very far away from anything interesting.
Proximity to bus stop for bus going to downtown Santa Barbara. Proximity to certain markets and restaurants.
People in the parking lot making noise every night; staff should do something about this without tenants having to complain
Nice, big and clean room - heated swimming pool - fitness looked nice but unfortunately no time to enjoy it !
A little bit far from the center - Our room was great but unfortunately dark because of the stairs just in front of our window - Breakfast was too basic
To pay $150 for a night at a budget hotel that had rust around the windows and needed calking in the bathtub was the last thing i expected based on your reviews. The beds were not comfortable (contrary to your reviews), and the pillows were as thin as paper. It was as if we were staying at truly budget hotel - which is not the rate we were paying.
The Sandpiper was a perfect location for us: close to the Earl Warren Showgrounds, also we were within walking distance of restaurants and a grocery store, so we made good use of the room's kitchenette.
The beds were absolutely amazingly comfortable. One of the most comfortable beds I have had at a hotel. The room was very clean which is most important to me.
To far from downtown and beach. I did know it wasn't close when I booked it.
