"Great Location and Pet Friendly"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 26, 2014

We stayed at this hotel a few weeks ago and had a great stay. We took an impromptu trip on a Monday to Santa Barbara. This hotel is on State street, you are walking distance to everything and about a 20min walk to the Wharf. It offers free parking, free breakfast and is dog friendly with no additional fee. We had our dog on this trip so it was a great bonus for us. It was a small room but perfect location and spot for a night or two...

"One night get away"

The Good: -Large clean modern rooms -Large pool area, (pool was heated to 85 i was told but we never went in). -Short walk to restaurants and shopping -Fair price for Santa Barbara ($195 AAA rate on Sunday night) -Free parking and continental breakfast Bad: -Wifi signal sketchy -Not walking distance to beach -Hotel was full on Sunday night and sunny locations in pool area seem to always be taken the next day. Bottom Line: If you dont mind driving to the beach this place is great. Last time we stayed in SB we had good luck using flipkey.com and payed a lot less.

"Great hotel, Great location...I've already booked 2 seperate return stays"

This hotel was perfect for business trip/mini vacay with the family. I booked 2 rooms...the king 2 room suite with sofa sleeper, and the 2 queen with sofa sleeper, both rooms were spic and span clean. Huge relaxing shower with seating, bathroom, living and sleeping quarter were open and spacious. The morning breakfast was perfect for the little one's...as they fell in love with the waffles...I must admit, the waffles were quite tasty. The lobby was warm and inviting. Pool area was very nice and the pool itself was heated which was great for swimming at night. There is also a deli across the street that is well stocked, they also prepare hot foods and have seating if you prefer to sit and eat. The property is walking distance to some of the best eateries in santa barbara and the state street area, such as tupelo junction cafe(great breakfast),Jane, Bouchon,Olio's. So if your on the fence about staying at this hotel....just go for it and book a stay. This was my first time at this hotel and I've already booked stays for August and September...I tried booking a 3rd stay, but the hotel is sold out for the dates needed...talk about a total bummer. So get to booking before its to late

"Nice clean.. Definitely recommend"

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"

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.
