This was one of 3 hotels/motels I stayed at on a recent trip to California. It was chosen by my sister who wanted free parking and that was her main 'want'. The room was ok with an odd bathroom arrangement. The staff were helpful rather than friendly but the breakfast choice, for this type of place was pretty good. Much... More

I was looking for an inexpensive place to stay and was glad I found this hotel. It's close to a Trader Joe's, CVS, and strip with food. The room itself was basic but had been recently upgraded and had a large TV. The only dated piece was the carpet. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast was surprisingly large.... More

I stayed here again (I know its the hidden one on PL's Express Deal) for a couple of nights just to finish off my trip. I knew that it was distant from the real State St, but it was fine, and still close to everything. Anyway, I got a better room than last time, but slighty noisier neighbors though, but... More

Fairly basic motel like site with little in the way of customer service. The room was large, clean and well presented. The bathroom was tiny and had no natural light and a rather strange timer on the electric light. The hotel is located away from the town centre and too far to walk, so you have to drive and park...

I really wasn't sure from the pictures and reading the reviews, what this place would be like. We were pleasantly surprised. Was there for a lacrosse tournament and was able to get to and from the highway and fields pretty easily. The building does not look like much from the outside, we arrived in the evening and the area is... More

We stayed for two nights while my husband had outpatient surgery in SB. While packing up I discovered bedbugs. When informed, the person at the desk immediately told us they would not charge for our stay. But the general quality of the room was not good, and then the inconvenience of having to deal with eradicating any possible bedbugs from... More

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.
