If you are a La Quinta Inns stayer you know that the hotels all up and down the West Coast (and possibly beyond) have been updated over the last year. But,my gosh: the Santa Barbara location is extraordinary. Here's why: 1. Fantastic location. I mean, right in the heart of it all. Walk to and from restaurants, enjoy leafy, sunny...

Staying at La Quinta served the purpose to be in Santa Barbara downtown. We stayed only for a night on our way to Los Angeles. The building is nice and it has been nicely remodeled. The furniture in the room and bathrooms is very nice and contemporary, however housekeeping didn't do a good job in the bathroom since the floor...

Recently remodeled with very current style. Most rooms are very large. Breakfast was of good quality including scrambled eggs and cook yourself waffles. Staff was accommodating. Our two down sides was a hide-a-bed that that was so uncomfortable we just used the couch cushions on the floor to sleep. (This actually worked pretty well.) Their latest trendy-styled bathroom door compromised...

We stayed here on the tail end of our Thanksgiving week. We stayed for only one night and I booked it on Hotwire, not knowing what I'd be getting. I think we probably paid too much for what we got. It's a big hotel with 2 or more stories and then some bungalows out back. We got put in a...

My mom, fur baby and I went to Santa Barbara for a trip to celebrate my mom's birthday. We decided to stay at La Quinta because they are pet friendly. Our stay here was great!

Santa Barbara is the perfect place for a three day weekend getaway from LA. La Quinta Inn is clean and functional. There's nothing fancy. My litmus test for hotel fanciness is the toiletries in the bathroom. It never fails. The toiletries you get here is a Pantene 2-in-1 shampoo & conditioner. I should just stop there because that's enough said...

Stayed here one night for work. It's a nice hotel in a decent location. Close enough to the main part of State Street, but far enough way from the noise. Though the building is old it's clearly been remodeled somewhat recently. The room was nice, small-ish but not cramped. Comfy bed and everything. However, compared to how much this hotel...

I stay at this hotel frequently on business and have found the hotel and staff to be consistently outstanding. It's always clean and the beds are quite comfortable. It's also conveniently located on State Street among a number of great restaurants. If I'm in Santa Barbara, I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else!
