    About this area

    Santa Barbara

    Located on the waterfront, Blue Sands Inn is in Santa Barbara's East Beach neighborhood, a walkable area with good shopping. The area's natural beauty can be seen at Lotusland and Los Padres National Forest, while Santa Barbara Museum of Art and Santa Barbara Bowl are cultural highlights. Santa Barbara Zoo and Center for Urban Agriculture at Fairview Gardens are also worth visiting. Our guests appreciate the motel's quiet location.

    Quaint, clean and convenient

    Blue Sands Inn was very quaint and in a convenient location. We loved our stay there. The room was a corner room on the bottom floor. Had a nice sized bedroom with a fireplace, nice bathroom, kitchen and patio area. The room was very clean and also very updated and new looking.
