We were visiting friends in Santa Barbara and I was looking for an updated place to stay. I read reviews on Trip Advisor and all of them for this hotel were good. I booked for three nights and wasn't disappointed. The room was small but very clean. The bathroom had a huge shower and nice vanity. Everything was updated and... More

Clean property stayed one night. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are spacious and beds are very comfortable. Nice pool area with plenty of seating. Enjoyed our time here as we traveled up the coast. Would stay here again.

On a road trip down California Coast. Loved the open lobby with ocean breezes and view of the pool. Large room, no bathtub. Toilet seat didn't fit toilet and refrigerator had to be turned off because of loud shrill noise. Reported the refrigerator to manager and he said they were new and would have it replaced. Good location, friendly staff.... More

Clean, comfortable, large room. Breakfast was great, never seemed crowded even though hotel was fully booked. A little far to walk to the beach (20 mins, but much longer if you get distracted by the shopping!). There's a cheap shuttle bus that takes you up and down State street and along the whole beach front (transfer required). It costs only... More

We did a booking with booking.com. But when arrived they had overbooket. Booking.com said that it was the hotel. In the reception they told us servel times that they would pay for our stay at a other hotel. But when we came to our new hotel they would not pay.

Stayed here one night. Rooms were spacious and clean. Nice little pool. Free, but basic, continental breakfast. Close to shops and restaurants. Dog-friendly hotel (ie lots of dogs in the parking lot!).

cheerful staff Staff NEEDS to recommend Alameda Park to families!! (close by and unlike any we've ever seen) beds were fabulous, pillows too great landscaping at pool (was slightly cool water temp though) ample lounge chairs (trim trees to avoid stained cushions) walked a few blocks to dinner/shopping - loved it.

The hotel has a bright newer lobby. Pool area was clean and attractive with lots of plants and palms. Three of us stayed in a nice sized suite with a pull-out sofa and king sized bed. (Our friend said the sofa was very comfortable). Breakfast consisted of cereal, toast, waffles, bagels, juice, cold hard boiled eggs, yogurt and pastries. Clean,... More

One of the finest La Quinta's we have stayed at. Ultra-modern, very large suite, including two beds and a sitting area with sleeper sofa (perfect for a family with two teenagers). Bathroom was huge and clean. Heated pool and very good free breakfast (it was a beautiful morning, so we ate outside by the pool). Manager on duty the next... More
