“Perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

It was our first time visiting Santa Barbara and, after reviewing a few hotels & motels on-line, we checked out LaQuinta based on price originally. Reasonably priced and away from the touristy places farther west, this was a gem of a find. The rooms were newly renovated, clean and fairly quiet. They even have a pool and free parking. Breakfast was OK, a good spread and well-maintained by a friendly lady. We also have good things to say about the front desk who helped find us a room and direct us to great restaurants. We highly recommend LaQuinta Santa Barbara!

Stayed May 2014, traveled as a couple

This was my first and my daughter's second stay at LaQuinta. She was absolutely correct in her analysis of this motel - the best we've visited for a long time. Comfortability, service, and price were great for our short stay in Santa Barbara.
