“Pleasantly Surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great price, friendly staff, the rooms are clean and nicely decorated, and the breakfast is an added bonus. We generally stay at another hotel chain, but will definitely stay here the next time we are in Santa Barbara.

Room Tip: Upstairs, corner room away from the street.

Clean room, my error-I reserved a room with only one bed, I was allowed to use a roll-a-way bed for free. The staff was friendly. Free breakfast each morning, walking distance to a large park, Trade Joes, BevMo and other supermarkets and a number of places to eat. The room was clean, the grounds well maintained, the staff was friendly. The free Wi Fi was difficult to sign on to and I finally gave up. In room air-conditioner which was nice to have and the window opened which was great when arriving to a stuffy room after spending the day out and about. The price was right.

Room Tip: Its a small hotel. Although I never heard the people in the room above us, it could be loud, and bri...

This is a quaint little motel in a great location on the north end of Santa Barbara. The Coffee Bean right across the street and Trader Joes just a short walk away. Thelace is clean but is quite dated. Rooms could be a bit nicer for what they charge - 210.00/nt on Sat and 120.00 for Sun. Pool is small and prettycool but swam anyway.Would stay again only because it is close to family. Breakfast was OK but go across the street for coffee.

We only stayed one night at this quality Inn, found it quiet, comfortable and nice breakfast in the morning. The price was definitely right, I was surprised at this inexpensive rate in Santa Barbara. We checked in later and found that we had rented the last room.... probably a good idea to book earlier especially on the weekend. The staff recommended a good restaurant within walking distance... great experience! Wasn't right in the middle of town, rather on the outskirts. Quality Inns provide a very nice breakfast, waffles, yogurt, juices, bagels, toast, pastries, several variety of cereals, fruits, eggs, Coffee and tea

Room Tip: Stayed on the first floor, no problems hearing anyone upstairs, room next to the pool

I stayed here for 2 nights and it fit my needs exactly. The hotel is older, but is not run down. My room was on the small side and the bathroom was pretty cramped for space. For me, a regular business traveller, it was just fine. If my family had been with me, it would have been frustrating. Breakfast was included, and was the standard fair of waffles, eggs, toast, etc. but was very good. The staff was courteous and helpful. A bonus was the Trader Joe's across the street and all the local restaurants within 3 blocks. The room had a microwave, fridge, and coffee pot, all in good working order. Generally, a really good value for the price. I was able to drive to the beach in about 10 minutes, and access to the 101 highway was simple.

Our room was ever nice; good bed, quiet (we were on 2nd floor), new bath, flat screen TV, and excellent WiFi. They were friendly and gave us a good price for this area. Breakfast was pretty std; not bad. Free parking in front of room. Would recommend and stay there again.

We have stayed in the Quality Inn in Monterey and were happy with quality/price ratio so when we have arrived to Santa Barbara and started to look for the hotels we ended up again in Quality Inn and again weren't disappointed. The price was higher than in Monterey and actually went higher with every mile we went to south to LA.
The Quality Inn is situated around 5 min away by car from the center in the quiet area. The breakfast was again basic but we didn't expect much. We stayed just one night and continued to go south. We do recommend this chain to our friends.

Room Tip: if you book by the internet choose the room inside of the courtyard. Because some of the rooms are a...
