Great for a school visit.

The location was excellent for the Santa Barbara area. The neighborhood was safe but not great for restaurants. Parking was conveniten and safe. The room was small for 3 people but the beds were great. The bathroom was quite small but clean and functional. The breakfast was good but did not include any meat. The overall ambience was good, safe with a bit of charm in the breakfast area. The price was exceptional for the Santa Barbara area.

Quality Inn Santa Barbara

Room had frig, micro, coffee, tea, iron and board, hair dryer, comfortable bed. Excellent assortment of breakfast foods, friendly workers. Excellent pool and towels avail poolside. Did not rent car and bus service nearby on State St. Numerous places to eat within walking distance and a Trader Joes next door to purchase food. Senior fare on bus was just $.85

The Santa Barbara Zoo is wonderful. Can take the electric open air shuttle down State Street and transfer to another shuttle at the wharf down to the zoo. $.50 fare $.25 Sr fare...no change given. If small children are with you (free fare). Also take "Little Toot " boat ride at end of pier. Kids love it.

Clean but uncomfortable,

It is very clean for an older hotel. But the beds were horribly uncomfortable. It is the smallest toilet/shower combo in the world. We have decided not to stay here on our next trip to Santa Barbara.

Not more than expected.

There was a normal, simple motel. No space to keep your luggage until check in, internet super slow but what do want of it? Two blankets for three persons prepared as always and very loud air conditioner. Everything else I must say was OK. Thank you for that guys, you earned you your 3+.
