Location of this QI was actually pretty decent. You are walking distance to some pretty good eats and not far from La Cumbre and other places nearby. Obviously, because this is SB, this room will cost you more than other Choice Hotels, so location is what you pay for here. However, for the price, it is reasonable for the area.... More

Just spent the night at this hotel as we have done every August for the past few years. Room was good, price a little high but it is Santa Barbara.... Staff was terrific! Love the area as the neighborhood is one of the safest in SB. In walking distance of many activities. See you next August!!

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.
