Hotel interior looks like new. Rooms was very nice. We had double beds the box corners stood out a lot. I did hurt my leg on that. TV is new. Wifi is free but connection not strong. Was on first floor and room does not have safety chain which is strange for exterior ground floor near the street room. That was 128.

Nice keurig coffee maker. But they only gave us decaf. Nice large bathroom but no bath mat for the cold floors. AC is not central but a unit on the window.

Free breakfast was great and helps with traveling budget with family of four.

Bed not comfy. Was ok.

Close to the restaurants and shops along State St. Very quiet, nice pool, not many little kids around. There is a trolley that goes to the wharf, the wharf is probably about 1 to 1 1/2 miles down State St.

I recently stayed at the La Quinta on State Street in Santa Barbara. The motel is conveniently located about two blocks above where a majority of restaurants, theaters, and shops are on State Street. The motel’s location makes for an easy walk to entertainment. Staff was pleasant each time I entered the lobby area. An enhanced continental breakfast is served each morning. If you need more sustenance, immediately across the street is a corner market that cooks made-to-order breakfasts and lunches. The room was spacious, clean, and included a fridge, microwave, Keurig, two queen beds, desk, easy chair and free wireless.

For those on business an abundance of electrical plugs was provided. The bathroom was equally large with fluffy towels and an interesting frosted door which you can’t see through, but it is unnerving at first. The only drawback is that the rooms are all on exterior corridors and the entry doors do have slight gaps, so, street noise can be heard at all hours. Should I go back to Santa Barbara, I’d stay at this motel again without hesitation

Everything was excellent, with the exception of the metal bed frames, which are longer than the mattresses. The corners are a hazard. Both my daughter and I came in contact with those sharp metal corners and it was quite painful. We didn't bleed because we wore long pants, but someone could easily break a leg on those sharp metal corners.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a night in June 2014. It exceeded my expectations- was much nicer than I expected a La Quinta to be. On State Street so a block from great restaurants and shops. Good pool, average continental breakfast. Helpful front desk staff. No complaints, would stay again.

This hotel is exactly what you would expect in sunny Santa Barbara. It looks like the hotel has recently had a complete makeover. The beautiful lobby has various sea glass tones and white tile. There was a convenience store or pantry which came in very handy. The pool is very private and is heated. You can't beat the location on State Street. There are an unlimited amount of restaurants, art galleries and shops in the area. My family and I loved the close proximity to Stearns Wharf and the Harbor. The staff at the hotel were great and give great suggestions on what to see and do while in the area. Great job LaQuinta.
