Cute, back-in-the-day motel. Cheapest we Could find in Santa Barbara. Free, strong Wifi, free breakfast and parking. Coffee at breakfast was lovely, breakfast consisted of pastries, muffins and granola bars.
The rooms are clean and large enough for a few nights. The motel is situated about a ten minutes walk away from the pier and main area of Santa Barbara
Also have a cute spa/hot tub.
Would recommend. :)

From here it was back to the hotel for coffee and another game of cards. Gill is still losing!!

Once we arrived at Avis we checked that we had every kind of insurance known to man. We found that I could drive for no extra cost because we were married but if we were de-factos Evan would have to pay extra. We were given the choice of a Kia Sorrento or a Chevy Captiva. We chose the Sorrento ($380 for 4 ...
... NOT. We found the end of Route 66 on the pier chatted with the guy in the booth who gave us a completion certificate ($7) and took our photograph. The main journey was complete we had traversed through nine states along America's Main Street.
We spent a couple of hours at Santa Monica Pier/Beach watching the various performers. One group of young kids did a Michael Jackson Tribute, which was very good. The traffic in Santa Monica was very busy so we ...
