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

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

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.

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+.

Clean, Friendly, much nicer than the rating indicated

We were greeted by friendly staff, the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful - continental style, plus a self-service waffle maker, hardboiled eggs, hot or cold cereal, and yogurt. We liked the convenience of having our car parked right outside our door. Since we were enjoying both UCSB and downtown State Street, the central location was perfect for us. We didn't use the pool although it looked inviting. The only downside ... it was a little noisy ... but hey, we were in a college town on a Friday night! Thanks for a good value, we will be back.

Weekend stay

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. Santa Barbara hotels had filled up, so there were very few choices that weekend. I was worried it would be sketchy but it's a nice little place for the budget conscious. Clean room, but TI-NY! Not much room to walk around beds (2) and VERY small bathroom. Three of us made do, though, as we were in town to sightsee and go wine tasting, so we really only slept there. It was clean and had modern furnishings. Also free breakfast & free parking. Right off State Street closer to the mountains than the beaches. There's a Coffee Bean across the street, plus a Trader Joe's and CVS within close walking distance.

cheap hotel

I feel I paid more than hotels worth, I had to tip-toe to bathroom because floor was noisy and I can hear my own foot steps, I didn't want to wake next door. I stayed there before with 40% cheaper price, I forgot that was same hotel, I wouldn't pick that one if I remember.
