Not the worst hotel, the staff were very friendly, our room was pretty clean - nothing crazy. But I’m not sure I’d stay here again unless I just needed a quick stop for a night or something like that. It’s priced pretty reasonable for the area and what it offers. It’s definitely a “motel” type place. The doors and windows open out into the walkways, stairways and parking lot. The rooms have a nice view of the mountains but you can’t enjoy it unless you don’t care about people walking by and staring into your room constantly. The bathroom is incredibly small and the door opens into it so you can’t bathe or use the restroom with the door open - there simply isn’t room lol. Our tub wouldn’t drain very well so you end up standing in ankle-deep water during your shower. And the toilet seat was soooo old! It was all scratched and dented and was terribly uncomfortable! The breakfast offering was pretty sad - just a pastry and a yogurt. But it’s pandemic times so that seems to be commonplace right now. The queen room did have a microwave and fridge and they were clean and worked well. The AC unit worked well also. It’s a little sketchy in the parking lot after dark - I didn’t feel comfortable walking up alone. They have people hanging out and being loud at the picnic tables around the grounds and parking lot. The motel is also next to what seems like a dog park and it gets very noisy.

The room received was little, smelled like chalk, and had sticky stained carpet. The smell was horrendous. When the air conditioning was turned on it smelled like urine. It was hard to breathe in the room. I had a child with me and asked to change rooms and the answer was no. It was my daughters 5th birthday. Spent in disgust. This hotel was not close to downtown its about 5 to 7 blocks away. Nothing in this room seemed to be disinfected. Horrible smells were coming from everywhere. At this point very disappointed with my stay. The towels are old and no longer bright white. The light switches had black build up. I just want to cry being in here and embarrassed to have brought my family here. The staff was friendly just wished they tried harder with cleaning this place. we also have allergies to dust and this carpet was not helping.

First, let’s make clear where this motel is located. The definition of Santa Barbara’s ‟downtown” is amorphous, and whether lodging is ‟near downtown” is even more so. But, having moved to Santa Barbara over fifty years ago, I feel qualified to say that State Street and Las Positas is definitely NOT downtown, and it’s a bit of a stretch to even call it ‟near” downtown. The one-way walking distance between this motel and Paseo Nuevo, for instance is about 2.5 miles. It is a delightful walk, but not one I’d like to take twice (or more) every day. However, if you don’t mind driving to downtown (or the beach, or the Mission, or the hills, or any of a dozen other delights of this city), this is a nice to place to stay. Like many chain motels, it’s more dedicated to efficiency and value than to warmth and charm, but ANY place in Santa Barbara is going to make it easy to find the latter qualities. Our room had a full bath, phone, AC, fridge, coffee maker, iron & board, hair dryer, and TV with about 100 channels. It was clean, quiet, and well-maintained; although staff left our window open before we checked in – something we didn’t notice till we checked out. Free amenities include parking, pool, wifi, and continental breakfast. Innumerable restaurants are within walking distance, and major shopping is a short drive. If you’re looking for good value during your stay in Santa Barbara, this can easily meet your needs.

Every time I check in, the young um latino happy guy greets me with a smile, warm welcome, there's a young caucasian girl I think she's blonde or light brown hair, super nice and friendly. There's tons of food nearby, a dog park, pokestops you can hit from the room, and overall just a beautiful area. The room itself is minimal clean and has a fridge and microwave. I keep coming back because it's just a great experience. Big shout out to the front desk for mailing the book I forgot and always giving great service.

One night in Santa Barbara. Room clean. Small with washbasin in room. Breakfast typical Q-Inn standard. Used the pool. Supermarket and Restaurants nearby. Friendly staff who try hard. Next time will try somewhere else.
