We were in the back building off the main building and the walls were so thin we could hear our neighbor whistling. Also what was actually light street traffic sounded very loud and our rooms was...

This hotel is on State street, you are walking distance to everything and about a 20min walk to the Wharf. It offers free parking, free breakfast and is dog friendly with no additional fee. We...

My husband and I headed up to Santa Barbara one Saturday morning on a whim and then decided to spend the night. After calling around to several of the local hotels this was literally the only one under $350 for the night and they didn't charge a pet fee! The pet fee has always rankled me because our small dog... More

On our California road trip, this was our cheapest hotel & the best. Modern bedroom and bathroom. The most comfortable bed I have slept in at a hotel. Pool really nice. Good location-close to shops restaurants and shuttle to beach, 50 cents adult. It's a 25 minute walk to the pier but an interesting one. As mentioned before, only downside... More

This La Quinta was a top notch hotel. Very nice accommodations and very clean and comfortable. The only area that I might recommend some improvement would be in the area of breakfast variety. While the food was good, there wasn't as much to choose from as I would have liked. Other than this very small issue, I would highly recommend... More
