First of all location is good because it is just a few minutes car ride from downtown. Parking is free and breakfast is ok consisting of scrambled eggs, diff types of bread, biscuits & gravy, waffles, and some juices plus of course coffee. Sad that there's no meat, though. There's a pool area but the November weather couldn't make me... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on a visit to Santa Barbara, the room is a decent size, clean and offers a small fridge. Bathroom is a touch small but everything works, very decent bed. Free breakfast offers everything you need.

Small, dingy, old smelling, rude employees. I think they tried to cover the old smell by spraying it down with air freshener that come across like putting perfume on a wet dog. Ran out of "free Breakfast" early and didn't refill or restock. The breakfast crumbs that were remaining looked like the 3 am mini mart gas station food selection... More

Nice clean room with good shower, fridge with freezer pocket, and comfortable beds. Working AC but no thermostat. Great breakfast, best we encountered so far during our road trip from San Francisco. We booked for two nights and then decided to stay another night, and Quality Inn managed our request perfectly. We could just stay in our room another night... More

I noticed at the time of booking Santa Barbara accomodation in all categories was simply over priced. Last year we spent 42 nights in various states in the south USA and this year it is for 46 nights covering mostly the west. We are retired and travel from Australia hence costs whilst important are not predominantly critical. So we decided... More

Pretty simple place just to spend the night. The room was fine, but not much in the way of property amenities. We found the room to be spacious and well appointed...large TV and HBO. The bath area was small and cramped. The shower head and soap, shampoo amenities were very good. The bed was comfortable and the room seemed clean.... More

Myself and two others found ourselves at this Quality Inn. We were down here for a workshop/certification and needed a place to sleep. Well, we got that and not much more. Let's start with the positives: the help at the front desk was great, the beds were comfortable, the breakfast was not pre-packaged muffins, and the room had a nice... More

We were searching for a decent budget friendly lodging in Santa Barbara (which is an expensive town). I trusted the reviews given by others, and I was not disappointed. For a simple motel, I found the Quality Inn comfortable, updated, clean, quiet, and pleasing. Having the swimming pool and little breakfast was a plus, definitely. I read another person state...

Decent sized rooms with good quality facilities and air conditioning. Only downside was Location but we did know this before booking, everything you require to see is a 5 minute taxi costing 10-15$. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was of a high standard.

Drove up from Los Angeles for one night in Santa Barbara to watch the fireworks. Since this is a holiday weekend any hotel downtown or near the beach was $300- $400 / night. We still paid over $200 for this Motel, but it's really like a $99 roadside motel room. We played in the upkept pool for about an hour... More
