Reviewed 2 November 2015

Stayed for one night on a road trip along the coast. Room was lovely, extremely clean and modern, with lots of nice touches. The AC unit was very noisy at night, as was he fridge so we had to switch both off, which was disappointing. Good location.

Wonderful location. Very friendly staff. In pricey and often disappointing Santa Barbara, this hotel shines. Large comfortable rooms. Always friendly and helpful staff. Very good value and comfy beds. Easy walk to State street action, easy parking and lots of choices in restaurants within easy walk. Best of all they make me feel like a valued guest every time.

An older motel that had been remodeled; expensive but Santa Barbara is VERY expensive; beautiful, spacious bathroom. Located close to best restaurant area; FREE parking, a plus for Santa Barbara; Hwy 101 fairly easy to access...would stay again

The new rooms were fantastic. The hotel is very nice. The location is even better. I had a bit of a concern with one aspect of my stay but the manager contacted me quickly. I think his dedication to ensuring we were satisfied with the stay is a good indication of their service. The room was very clean. The beds...

Such a wonderful surprise. Lovely big rooms. Comfortable beds. Friendly staff and very nice public areas. Great location just a few minutes walk to shops and restaurants. The hotel is very clean and feels fresh and modern. Love the 'motel' style feel. Feels very 'Californian' but with upscale accommodations. Would highly recommend!

Clean room at a reasonable price, and friendly, helpful staff. Convenient parking and within easy walking distance to the Mission Santa Barbara, and to downtown. Surprisingly good breakfast as well. Wifi is included and there is a large swimming pool.

We were greeted by a friendly staff, and were pleased that we were allowed to check in early. This is a lovely older LQ that has made lots of upgrades and improvements. We received a wonderful rate on our room because we were able to buy the room down with our points. It helped to make the room very affordable....

Since we could not get a reservation at the Upham where we normally stay I opted to stay at La Quinta Inn in Santa Barbra. I grant that I only booked for one night and that was a Saturday, but still $347 including taxes was more than I spent to stay in The Fairmont Royal York in Toronto, The Rosewood...

This is a great place to stay. The hotel is clean and the staff is super helpful and friendly. Only recommendation would be a quieter AC unit but that did not deter one bit from the experience. Great location and close to downtown and the Mission. Incredibly clean.
