This is one of our favorite La Quintas in the entire chain! Brett, the manager, is incredibly progressive in his treatment of the property, staff, and guests. This is one of the only LQs who use recyclable materials at breakfast, has some healthier options, offers soy milk, etc. I so appreciate their environmentally friendly offerings. The maintenance staff are also...

I'm hesitant to even write this review because I don't want everyone to learn about what a great hotel this! But it truly is. Beautifully updated Mid-Century Modern gem with a relaxing pool, excellent staff and a free breakfast that truly can't be beat. Plus, it's just a short walk from everything fun to do in downtown Santa Barbara, including...

This hotel was a nice find. Reasonable rates by Santa Barbara standards, especially considering it is on State Street and within easy walking distance of downtown restaurants and shopping. It appears to have been fairly recently renovated. The retro decor was pleasing. Rooms were larger than I expected. We had a second floor room overlooking the pool that was very...

Grat room on 2nd floor over swimming pool and garden in 60s-70s art-deco architectural design; a short block away to the vintage Arlington Theater concert venue. GREAT location for the Solstice Parade (late June), and walk-able to all popular State Street venues and beach/marina in south state street area. Good and responsive house-keeping and concierge. Room has modern technology links...

As always, the La Quinta experience was nice, comfortable and friendly. I would love them to join the hotel trend of a beer/wine/fresh-brewed tea/coffee happy hour! But this location has a nice little pool area, fitness room and comfortable beds. Nice option when you're in SB!

This is a very comfortable choice in a quieter part of Santa Barbara, without being too far from the action of downtown. The property has a lovely pool area, and there are some beautiful parks very nearby. Our dog enjoyed the stay as well.

I'm not sure if we ever stayed at a LaQuinta before but we will not hesitate in the future. This place is terrific! We planned on staying one night and wound up staying 3. The location which is approximately1 1/2 miles from the wharf is perfect. We walked everywhere-attractions, restaurants, beach. Our room was spacious, spotless,comfortable. The breakfast was okay-typical...

Relatively clean (found some wrappers on wall side of bed) and quiet. Stood on the annex outside room. bed was comfortable. Parking was easy. Staff was helpful and available. And more than that, it was reasonable priced given the normal hotel fees. Would stay again.
