This was not the type of motel I had expected when I booked online. The other Quality Inns that I have stayed at have all been newer properties with modern amenities. Unfortunately, this place was neither modern, nor did it have much in the way of amenities. It was a much older property. The room and bathroom were very small and cramped. Fixtures were old and the AC didn't work too well. Fortunately, it was cool and the AC wasn't needed.
The front staff was not too helpful. I was expecting a computer with a printer to be available like at the other Quality Inns that I had stayed at. While there was wireless in the rooms, there was no computer/printer in the lobby area and the clerk at the front desk wouldn't let me use his printer.
The worst part about it was all this "luxury" cost me $130. I had expected to pay more being in Santa Barbara but I checked out a couple of places that were right on the beach and they were going for the same rate. So, I felt like I was ripped off as well.
On the plus side, the room was clean, the motel was quiet and the continental breakfast was decent with fresh baked goods.
So, unless you are trying to obtain points through choicehotels.com, I would probably stay somewhere else.
