Awesome stylish rooms at an affordable price. Peakaboo ocean views!

You get a lot for your money from the Blue Sands Inn. The staff was super helpful and pleasant, the property is a block from the beach, and the rooms are modern and look like they were recently renovated. There is a pool as well, though we did not try that out. The only minor complaint was that we stayed in the king fireplace room with the ocean view. However, the view from the large window in the room was blocked by tree leaves. Would be nice to trim back the leaves so that the ocean view was not so hard to see. Otherwise, a great deal in an expensive market and would stay here again. Also, super dog friendly and our pup had a great visit.

Quietly tucked away yet, close to beach, funk zone and downtown via a short and enjoyable walk.

Great location. Room had side view of ocean and beach. Great pool and pool seating area. Amazing shower in room

Very nice hotel; clean, well maintained, lovely decor, excellent area. Good for couples looking for a quiet space!

Perfect location by the beach. Freshly renovated. Super clean. Staff is all smiles and super helpfull. You need to go and see by yourself.

This hotel is in a GREAT location and the rooms are very clean and cute. They recently had a remodel and are no longer dog friendly to dogs bigger than 40 pounds, but they honored my reservation since I did it in advance, but I wish they would change it back because i would love to stay there again with my dog.

Very comfortable boutique motel on east beach. Just went through a beautiful remodel and the staff is very helpful. No doubt my wife and I will be back.

Sean at the front desk was extremely helpful with whatever we needed. The room was an ocean view, but was a little small. Other rooms were larger. The bathroom was nicely done and there was air conditioning. We were close to the beach and there was a nice pool area. We were there to see a concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl so the Blue Sands Inn was perfect for us.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Since your visit, we have trimmed the palm trees in front of the window and there is now an open ocean-view. We love to make our guests feel at home. We are looking forward to welcoming you and your furry friend again.

We also enjoy the stroll along Cabrillo Blvd. The funk zone is a great place to eat and drink. And the beach is just a few steps away. Thank you for your feedback. We hope to see you again soon.
