Hello Alison, we greatly appreciate reviews! However, Marina Beach Motel only has one floor and does not have a pool. Because of this, we believe you stayed elsewhere on your latest trip and accidentally reviewed Marina Beach instead of where you truly stayed. But we would love to have you as a guest on your next trip to Santa Barbara! Since we don't have a pool, you won't have to worry about the noise. We hope to see you soon!

No, there are no beds at the beach but it is very close to it (1 street). It has a small space in the middle of the hotel with some chairs and tables but not really to sunbathe, just to have some relax there.

I think you should probably bring your own child seat. The bicycles are pretty basic.

No locked boxes in rooms that I recall. Do not know about the office.

"All rooms are perfect, but if you have kids and stay longer than take a room with a kitchen. "
"Top floor only, away from the pool"
"Stay in one of the Kitchenette units, if possible."
"all rooms are perfect"
