I recently stayed at the La Quinta on State Street in Santa Barbara. The motel is conveniently located about two blocks above where a majority of restaurants, theaters, and shops are on State Street. The motel’s location makes for an easy walk to entertainment. Staff was pleasant each time I entered the lobby area. An enhanced continental breakfast is served... More

Everything was excellent, with the exception of the metal bed frames, which are longer than the mattresses. The corners are a hazard. Both my daughter and I came in contact with those sharp metal corners and it was quite painful. We didn't bleed because we wore long pants, but someone could easily break a leg on those sharp metal corners.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a night in June 2014. It exceeded my expectations- was much nicer than I expected a La Quinta to be. On State Street so a block from great restaurants and shops. Good pool, average continental breakfast. Helpful front desk staff. No complaints, would stay again.

This hotel is exactly what you would expect in sunny Santa Barbara. It looks like the hotel has recently had a complete makeover. The beautiful lobby has various sea glass tones and white tile. There was a convenience store or pantry which came in very handy. The pool is very private and is heated. You can't beat the location on... More

It was our first time visiting Santa Barbara and, after reviewing a few hotels & motels on-line, we checked out LaQuinta based on price originally. Reasonably priced and away from the touristy places farther west, this was a gem of a find. The rooms were newly renovated, clean and fairly quiet. They even have a pool and free parking.

This was my first and my daughter's second stay at LaQuinta. She was absolutely correct in her analysis of this motel - the best we've visited for a long time. Comfortability, service, and price were great for our short stay in Santa Barbara.
