Great location
The room was great with two queen beds. The bathroom was large, clean and all very new. We were located on the ground floor which was fortunate as we had a lot of luggage. The pool was outside our room so very handy. The room came with a small kitchen (fridge, oven, and microwave) which was very useful. We cooked dinner one evening and sat outside and ate on the patio by the pool. Handy having the supermarket almost next door! The pool was lovely with very luxurious sun beds. Towels were offered for the pool and the beach. Loved the complimentary tote bag they gave out. The lobby area was lovely and had snacks of biscuits, croissants with teas and coffees all day. The air conditioning was all new and very quiet. Location great! The beach was just across the road which was lovely and quiet. Would definitely recommend this accommodation. Staff were lovely too!

Very good quality/pricing ratio, and most of all, very nice decoration with white and blue colours, and amazing wall art from local artists. Atmosphere is really zen, peaceful while close access to Santa Barbara’s city center. We didn’t realize that there would be a real kitchen and diner corner inside the room, so goooood surprise, although my husband still remembers the fridge being too noisy (I don’t). Welcome at check in very warm. Last surprise was the free access to drinks and pastries, at least in the morning, so we didn’t have to go to grab a paying breakfast elsewhere. Only regret was that we didn’t get the opportunity to go into the swimming pool. One night at Blue Sands Inn is not enough.

Great location! Super cute room. Loved the market next door and taco spot recommended up the street. Would definitely return!

The property is a well-renovated 1950’s motel and is exactly as depicted in the photos - very clean, modern, newly decorated and comfortable. The pool is lovely with plenty of pool towels and patio seating. The rooms are not large, but they are all you need, and the updated bathrooms are great. Free coffee in the lobby, bikes on site to rent, and in our case a convenient kitchenette. Extremely friendly and helpful staff!

Fantastic eco-friendly hotel, lovely decor and chilled feel throughout, very helpful and friendly receptionist. There is however limited sun loungers, but ok as we went out to explore Santa Barbara’s sights, can walk to the center in about 30 min, lovely walk along the beach. Thank you for our reusable tote bag BIG eco thumbs up 👍

When we arrived we were greeted by a really friendly member of staff who was most helpful. On entering our room the first thing I noticed was the smell. It smelt clean and fresh. On further inspection I noticed it looked really clean as well. It had everything we needed and more. Really good surprise to find we had a kitchen as I do like to prepare my own food sometimes. We were even provided with a shopping bag and eco-friendly toiletries. It had a large fridge and freezer and a fantastic shower. The pool was deep and a really good size. Of the 6 hotels we stayed in during our 23 night road trip this was by far my favourite (and most of the others were great). It was also the most reasonably priced. It might have been the smallest room we had but it was perfectly formed. Car parking was provided free. You have probably realized I would highly recommend this place.
