"Nice clean.. Definitely recommend"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 23, 2014

Stayed here a few days with my family. Husband and 3 girls. Nice location and easy access. On state st. Which is their downtown. There's a shuttle that runs down state all the way to beach/pier for .50. Rooms were clean. We got a suite and it was just a room with 2 beds and a sofa bed... Was looking forward to a separate room for the kiddos. Rooms were very clean though and nicely decorated. Pool was very nice and clean we went every day. No jacuzzi. Breakfast was actually pretty good. We have stayed at many la quintas an this one had more variety than the usual ones. Waffles, bagels, toast, hard-boiled eggs, coffee and juices. Would stay here again.

"Pet Friendly and Fabulous Staff"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 23, 2014

My husband and I headed up to Santa Barbara one Saturday morning on a whim and then decided to spend the night. After calling around to several of the local hotels this was literally the only one under $350 for the night and they didn't charge a pet fee! The pet fee has always rankled me because our small dog is always respectful of hotel rooms but we have begrudgingly paid it in the past. This time, I was thrilled to not be charged just for having our pup with us. Beyond that, though the staff was awesome. They were welcoming and helpful. The room was very nice. It looks like the rooms have recently been upgraded. The furniture and fixtures are all modern and sleek. The bed and pillows are really comfy. The pool area is like a little oasis because it is shielded by the hotel itself and surrounded with lush landscaping. We loved our stay here and would definitely stay here again. They had a complimentary breakfast as well, that was ok. The same stuff you normally see: oatmeal, cereal, bagels, toast. I would have like to see an egg (or other protein) option besides hard boiled but otherwise it was fine. For this area (blocks from all the great restaurants and shops on State street) it is a great deal. Oh! one last thing: I don't know what they are washing their towels in, but they are SOOOO SOFT! Not all hotels pay attention to that detail.

"Nice hotel & really good value"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 22, 2014
On our California road trip, this was our cheapest hotel & the best. Modern bedroom and bathroom. The most comfortable bed I have slept in at a hotel. Pool really nice. Good location-close to shops restaurants and shuttle to beach, 50 cents adult. It's a 25 minute walk to the pier but an interesting one. As mentioned before, only downside was breakfast but we picked up a healthy one down State Street. Would definitely stay again-for longer.

"Very Nice Hotel"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 20, 2014
William E | Mission Viejo, United States
This La Quinta was a top notch hotel. Very nice accommodations and very clean and comfortable. The only area that I might recommend some improvement would be in the area of breakfast variety. While the food was good, there wasn't as much to choose from as I would have liked. Other than this very small issue, I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling in the Santa Barbara area.

"High Quality Beds & Walkable to Center of Town"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 19, 2014
KristinCC | Las Vegas, Nevada
I was happy with our stay here. We were on a two week road trip and I was surprised how incredibly comfortable and cozy the bed was in this hotel at La Quinta Inn in Santa Barbara. I had the best sleep here than any other night on our road trip. Additionally, the hotel has a walkablity rating of 89/100 via walk score. There is a small grocery store directly across the street, and that market has very tasty soup and sandwiches made to order. The hotel is just a few blocks away from the center of town. There are trolly's that can take you to the beach; I would not say it's within walking distance to the ocean, but still close enough. The rooms themselves looked average. There was no view in our room (213), and it did smell just a little funky inside the room when we arrived. However, they are very generous about bringing your pets along, so we were grateful for that and for us, it superseded the slight smell. The parking is free but very tight; we got the last parking spot as the place was packed with people and cars! Make sure to try and book early if you can--they told us we got the last room available. Overall, a nice stay, especially because of the extremely comfortable bed and easy going attitude about us bringing our little dog with us.
