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

My adult children and their families wee delightfully surprised I acquired such excellent hotel accommodations - and within walking distance to town where excellent restaurants abound! We had a marvelous wedding celebration weekend and my children will be back (so will I but not with them). The hotel and rooms were utraclean, decor new, facilities such as the pool fun... More

We were a little unsure when we drove up, but when we went inside, it was very nice. It was probably the nicest La Quinta we had stayed in. I believe the desk clerk said they had just undergone renovations. I was able to go for a run the mile and a half down to the wharf, and back. It... More

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Room was very clean and the bathroom was spacious. Nice pool area. Free parking and free continental breakfast. We had neighbours who had visitors both very late at night and very early in the morning, and the door knocking/slamming woke us up several times, but that's not the hotel's fault. Perhaps some noise from the... More

We picked this hotel based on location and other reviews. When I arrived I just saw a simple little motel looking place, but that's just the outside. The rooms are beautiful inside (newly remodeled). I called a few hours before check-in and the concierge graciously said they had a couple rooms that were ready, so no problem. They didn't charge... More

Great location for business in Santa Barbara - or just enjoying the sights. Watch the garage though - and ask for an end room. It's right downtown on State Street, so be aware of street noise and traffic. There's a little store across the street for snacks and supplies. Good restaurants and shops within walking distance. Great and courteous staff.... More

I stayed in Santa Barbara with two of my friends during July. We were driving from San Francisco to LA and ended up staying two nights in the hotel instead of the just the one like we had planned. The hotel was in a great location and the staff were so friendly, when we decided to stay the second night... More

The hotel is nice -looking and the staff was helpful and friendly. The location is great for State Street. But our room was loud. 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...
