“Acceptable, but could have been better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We checked into the Quality Inn on a Saturday on peak season so the place was a bit crowded. But it was a decent room at a fair price so we went with it. First the good. It was a clean room with a decent location next to the outlet mall and not a far drive from the beach. Now the bad. Out window was broken and had been duct taped back together. Not exactly my choice for security. Secondly they had put 9 people in one room and the police were called out once for noise. Someone needs to clean up around the grounds. There was a little stream bed type deck in the back of the place and it was disgusting. A little trash pickup is in order. I wont be back anytime soon but at least the room was clean. Tip - Dont get a downstairs room because this place is built like a wooden cabin. Our upstairs neighbors kept us up all night.

Room Tip: Upstairs to avoid hearing everything upstairs.

This is a great location considering it is a budget hotel. No it is not on the beach but it is an easy drive. The rooms have an exterior corridor.

My room was updated except the carpet was old and worn down. The arm chair was outdated also and may have added a slight odor to the room. My window lock was broken. and the stand up lamp would not work. The room was fairly small.

On the plus side the room was clean. It had a clean microwave and small refrigerator. Good hot water in the shower.

The front desk people were all very friendly. The pool area looked small but nice. Fun to watch the zumba class going on as I packed my car the next morning.

I wasn't going to stay here after reading the reviews but since I was a Choice privileges member , just going to be overnight and had to use up some points, I chanced it. Had a nice stay-clean carpet and room tho unfortunately the coffee maker, fridge and remote didn't work. But still was a nice stay with a nice pool and jacuzzi. Plus nice people at the front desk. It is a 2 story motel tho and I could see how it can be noisy from the cars parked outside and the thin walls...

I wouldn't stay here if I come back here again. It was the last minute decision so I didn't have much choice but definitely should have picked other ones. Room wasn't clean compared to its price (queen for over 200$ including tax) and the bathtub seemed too gross that I was hesistant to take a shower... Breakfast in the morning was terrible so I threw almost everything away...

Booked as a walk in. Needed a last minute getaway.. This is the place. Right next to the pismo outlets!! Hotel staff were friendly and accomodating. Room was clean and comfortable with frig and microwave. Continential breakfast was typical, but well stocked and clean. Cereal, fruis, juices, pasteries, toast, coffee.. The usual.. They also had breakfast sausage, egg patties, and boiled eggs. There is a pool, and hot tub, but we did not use. I believe they also provide towels. Easy to find off the 101. Room was about $80. No ocean view, but its a big ocean. Got to the beach within minutes. The ocean is free.. Why are hotels charging so much for the viewsSurrounding grounds were clean and quiet. Will go back again.

Probably not the best, but finally something clean, very clean, motel at a reasonable price. A little tough to find, the gps could not pinpoint the location, and most residents, or maybe tourists had no idea of where the street in question was: five cities dr; however the desk clerk got us there, and once there we realized its convenience.
Close to the 101, yet within 15 minutes of the pier and the action..
King bed, plasma tv fridge, microwave and a cute pool with lava rocks. Not bad for less than a 100
