This is an older property, well-maintained. Rooms are very clean, but small.

Bed is fantastic. And really that is what matters, except for the strange incessant chirping sounds that kept waking us in the middle of the night.

What the heck?

They were so loud they actually woke us. I managed to ignore them, but my husband kept getting up, hunting for their source, and experimenting with ways to make them stop. He was unsuccessful. They finally stopped on their own.

Something that made me laugh out loud during a visit to the bathroom is the highly creative sign hung from the towel bar: "Another splash of value." The card regales the occupant with the state of the art features of the shower curtain. So funny. :)

Would we stay here again? I suppose so. We would prefer the room without the chirping feature though. :)

Internet and breakfast are free. Internet is fairly fast and reliable. But will kick you out intermittently. Drives my husband nuts. And he is already nuts enough from hunting chirps in the night. :)

Santa Barbara's Quality Inn at the intersection of La Vina St and State St, two main streets, is well located.
Rooms are small but clean. Beds are very confortable. Bath room is small but clean. Room WiFi works fine. Cable TV in room is OK. Air conditionning works fine too.
Breakfast is a continental one but well werved. You can even make your own waffles. As many as you wish.
Hotel parking is free and there is always free slots.
There is a pool too, I never tried.
For the price, a very good choice.

Room Tip: Upper floor is quieter. At least you won't hear steps.

I guess hotels in Santa Barbara is very experience, and didnt pay lots of money for this hotel. This quality inn I stayed is more like a motel, room was small, not close to any traveler attractions. I will give 2 stars for this hotel.

Room Tip: I was asking a quiet room,and the guy gave me one right beside the stairs. I didn't pay lots of...

They had an unexpectedly awesome breakfast menu : bagels, muffins, coffee, waffles, orange juice and coffee.

And clean sheets. -All the things I need to give them a five star review :)

And they have parking both on the first floor and the second

I stayed with my family last night. It was a good hotel for the price.

The person at the reception was friendly. Checking was fast and accurate. Room was good, clean.

Morning breakfast was great.

Harry the owner was on the front desk in the motioning. He was courteous and friendly.

We had a good experience at this hotel.

For this trip, we just needed a base camp from which to sight see for our family of four. This quaint old hotel has been upgraded to meet modern expectations while keeping its charm. Check in was easy, our room on the second floor was a bit on the small side but perfectly adequate (no elevator though). The bathroom (toilet/shower) was very small but the sink/mirror outside allows multiple people to get ready. We liked the free wifi and the breakfast offered good variety in a nice environment to sit and eat. It boasts a beautiful view of the mountains and since we had a car, its central location allowed us to experience Santa Barbara on a budget.
