This La Quinta is quite special. Even as a regular La Quinta customer, i found this one a step above even some of their best. It was an original designed older mid century modern hotel updated to be current. Great location walking distance to most things in downtown and surrounding downtown area. Wonderfully clean lobby and room. Loved the two...

Arrived at the hotel on a Thursday and was greeted by a beautiful and inviting exterior. The staff, Brett and his team, were wonderful! They offered suggestions on things to do in the area and reminded us that it was Whale watching season! The hotel is very clean and fresh feeling. Located right on State street, anything you need is...

This hotel is in a great location to see the city. It is just off the end of State St. which host all the restaurants and shops of downtown Santa Barbara. The Waterfront shuttle to the wharf is just 2 blocks away. They have a great breakfast offered in the lobby. We were here for a week and found it...

We stayed one night at the hotel on a road trip from LA to San Francisco. Staff were helpful and courteous. Warm cookies on arrival were much appreciated as was the (basic but plentiful) breakfast buffet. The room was large and comfortable. My only gripe is the huge bathroom that was freezing cold. The hotel is an easy walk to...

We stayed at La Quinta for one night over winter break, with our child and 2 dogs. Staff checked us in early, efficiently, and even quickly changed our room to a ground level for our senior dog, at our request. The room was clean, beds comfortable, and the location was in downtown Santa Barbara, just a couple blocks from the...

Great location if you want to be near downtown/entertainment. Walked to and from the Granada for a concert. Longer walk to most downtown stores, but workable. Nice pool and grounds. Good breakfast options included.

On our way to San Diego we stayed two nights in Santa Barbara. We had two bungalows which were renovated and looked nice from inside, however the bungalows are located next to the parking lot and a bit noisy. During breakfast we had a very bad and rude service from the staff, after talking to the hotel manager he handled...

We chose this property for a mini NYE vacation with the family. Upon arrival, we were impressed with the location on upper State Street, lobby and size of the room.

Santa Barbara hotels are pricy and we therefore ended up staying at the La Quinta. Overall the hotel is not great. Both our room and our friend's room was not cleaned one day at all. We alerted the manager and the room was barely cleaned the next day, with simply the bed being made, nothing more. The bathroom was sizable...

The staff here was the best. They were very helpful especially the first night when we came in late. The rooms were clean and easy to get to. The only problem is that the air conditioner heater was noisy. It worked very well though.
