4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

My Family and I stayed here for an overnight stop between Monterey and Anaheim, mid-August 2016. Fairly basic but the hotel in general seemed up together with the lobby clean and tidy and a reasonable parking area, although chargeable. Staff were helpful and informative giving us local information etc. Our room (2 queen size beds) was clean and tidy, and... More

A very relaxed atmosphere. Plenty of room for 4 for 3 days. We had s beautiful view of the harbour. Complimentary continental breakfast each morning and wine and cheese hour each evening was greatly appreciated. The pool area was lovely and the hotel provided free coffee/ hot chocolate/ tea and coffee in the lounge as well as the rooms.

And it was incredibly reasonable for a rental in Santa Barbara. Very centrally... More

My sister and I were on a road trip from San Jose to San Diego mid-August. I've stayed in many Santa Barbara hotels but they were either booked or the rates sky-high. So glad I took a chance on the La Quinta on State Street. Clean, quiet room, with convenient parking ($10 add'l). Breakfast was delicious and we even hit... More

Excellent breakfast, especially the waffles.The beds are very comfortable. The room is big enough. Being close to the Santa Barbara Museum of Art is a plus, though some of your staff had no idea where the museum is located.
