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.
The rooms were clean and basic, and the check-in was fine.
The hotel is on the corner of 2 major streets, so it isn't in a quiet area. The walls are thin and a group checked in late to the room next to ours and we could hear every word. It sounded like a bunch of college kids on spring break, but it turned out to be a very loud family with small kids (and the kids weren't making the most noise), They did, however, quiet down when I went over in my PJs at 2 a.m. and asked them to keep it down.
I mistakenly thought that we could easily walk to the Santa Barbara Pier from this hotel, but it would have probably taken 35-45 minutes. We decided to drive once we figured that out, and we were glad we did even though it took a bit of time to find parking.
While this hotel wasn't awful, I certainly wouldn't pick it for my next trip to Santa Barbara.More
