This is an older property, beautifully redone in modern somewhat oriental style in cool turquoise and beige. The pool courtyard is lushly landscaped. Love the new showers! The service was impeccable. The breakfast bar was quite extensive.

The quick: clean, relatively quiet (depending on other guests), new upgrades, I would stay again. More: Before booking, I read the hotel was going through upgrades and there were past noise issues. When we stayed this past week, construction was done and not an issue. Very clean, brand new furniture, facilities, everything. It was kind of fun being some of... More

We stayed at the La Quinta Inn in Santa Barbara. It was very nice compared to the other La Quinta's I have stayed in. Very clean. 2 blocks from the Arlington Theater. We were kindly greeted by Nichole at the front desk, and had great service all weekend.

When I arrived from the SB airport via a cab, the driver said 'You picked a good one!' He was right. Excellent location on State St, convenient to major sights, museums, etc., restaurants, shopping. Bus #11 from the airport drops you off right at the hotel. The fifty-cent downtown trolley is just a few blocks away. Hotel staff very knowledgeable,... More

My husband and I are really loving the La Quinta Inn & Suites that we have stayed at during our late winter/spring coast-to-coast trip across the USA. We have been frequent visitors to Santa Barbara and were delighted that the La Quinta could offer such reasonable rates for a motel in a convenient location. The room was large, clean and... More

I've booked this hotel 20 March 2013 for one night 20/21 July 2013 for my family (2 adults and 2 children 10 and 11 years old). It was 11 PM Saturday evening when we reach hotel (after all day trip from San Francisco). They cancelled our reservation! They didn't help us to find something else. We were so tired... Our... More

The beds were very comfortable! The only problem was some young adults decided to take a swim at 7:30am on a Sat. And they were not told the pool did not open until 9:00am. Other then that the room, the staff and the location was an A+! We will stay again!

Located right off of State Street. Easy access to waterfront shuttle or bus. Plus, easy walking distance to many attractions. Clean and comfortable beds, peoples. Newly remodeled. I would stay again. Cons: Night shift people did not know the area and did not offer suggestions about waterfront shuttle or other transportation to hotel.

This hotel is a well done rehab of a well located downtown hotel. It provides very good value for a clean and modern room with a large well appointed bathroom. There is a nice pool area and ample parking in a downtown area where its often a problem. We'll be back.
