I regularly stay at La Quinta hotels throughout the states for business and this is definitely one of the better ones. The building and premises have been remodeled and modernized. Quite pretty. Service is good and pleasant. There is ample parking as well and a nice swimming pool. Our room was a large (executive) king room which was absolutely excellent... More

Excellent service and check in, pretty property, walking distance to restaurants and shops. You would need to drive to pier/beach. Room was great except we did not like the glass door on the bathroom, if you were traveling with kids or friend it would not be enough privacy. Not sure if all rooms had this. Nice area, unfortunately it was... More

My family stayed at this property on a Thursday during our summer vacation road trip. It's located on State Street near the North end of the shopping district (very safe area). From this hotel you can easily walk about two miles down to the waterfront area while passing many shops and restaurants. The hotel itself was originally built in the... More

I'm sure your hotel search in SB has proven quite expensive even for modest accommodations. Due to 3 girlfriends budgets we booked at LQ SB and we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the motel. All three of us girls were very happy with our stay and would come back. The lobby is nicely decorated and inviting. The reception... More

We got an amazing deal for this hotel, but it was through Hotwire, so we didn't specifically request this hotel. Didn't know what we were getting, but it was 4th of July weekend and everything else in Santa Barbara was more expensive, so we took a chance. It is in the perfect location. On State Street, but about 2 city... More

We stayed here for one night on our road trip through California and absolutely loved Santa Barbara. The hotel (motel style) is conveniently located just a few blocks from the downtown and waterfront areas and a very easy walk down the street. Parking is available at USD 10 a night and wifi is free. The hotel has two buildings and... More

Internet was included and easy to access. The room and bathroom looked recently remodeled and the bath was especially nice and clean with newer vanity and tiling. The only minor problem was that the room was a bit dark, but we weren't in town to sit in the room so that was not a big deal. Breakfast was nice offering... More

We stayed here July 4th weekend with our kids and chihuahua. Hotel has a retro feel to it. Location far enough from crowded area of State Street so we didn't have traffic issues driving in or out.

Hotel was an excellent location, and looked beautiful including the inside of the room. However, bathroom was one room, not separate toilet room, and had a frosted glass door, so privacy was a huge issue for family and frosted door didn't even close tightly. Breakfast food was weak but staff was friendly.
