This is an older motel that has been remodeled and made into a Quality Inn. The parking lot is cramped and it would probably be tough if it was totally fully and everyone had big cars or SUVs. Not an easy in and out in that case. Notice that the website photos don't have any cars in the parking lot.... More

It was nothing special. For the price in that area it was a good deal. The AC was very noisy though. Everything was clean and in order. We where caught in traffic and arrived late. That was not a problem for them. Did it's job.

A recent visit to this hotel by 4 women travelling together was quiet and pleasant. True, our room was small but we made it work and were comfortable. We especially appreciated the very helpful staff and cleanliness of the room. It is also centrally located to the sites we wanted to see and quiet even though close to the freeway.... More

This is the 2nd year we have stayed at this location on our travels. We only stay for one night, it was perfect for a one night stay, the light breakfast was nice and we would stay here again. It was very clean, a little older hotel, small... worked for us.

We were pleased with our room. This was a small hotel but felt like a larger one. The free breakfast was light and exactly what we were looking for. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this hotel.

Sorry, but I fail to understand HOW this place got 3-1/2 stars. Maybe 2 at its best...dated, tired, only a place to sleep, that's it. We would NEVER stay here again (& neither should you). We could've stayed SO many nice places.

Stayed here 1 night during Los Angeles to San Francisco fly drive 10 day holiday. Hotel is simple with dated furnishings (bed spreads, furniture) but was clean, comfortable, quiet, adequate parking, good breakfast all for a cheap price. The staff was helpful. The location was ideal if you have a car. I initially thought I would be walking to the... More

Our stay exceeded our expectations...very clean, comfortable, but above all--friendly and accommodating staff, not always found at even more costly places, of which there seem to be many along the California coast.

This Quality Inn was a great place to stay. It's small but the room was nice and quiet to have been on a busy street. We were only a couple of miles from Santa Barbara. Highly recommend. Breakfast was great. Would definitely stay there again when in the area. The staff was so helpful at check-in and check-out. You won't... More

Only stayed one night in this property. It was small but clean. Staff was friendly, breakfast was great with lots of space to eat as a family. Was in a good area and walked to restaurants for dinner. Good value.
