Honestly, the vibe of this hotel brings you back to the mid 20th Century...but in a good way. Our visit included a planned power outage that they covered over with 2 film generators. We only were missing power for a half hour to let them hook up and then to disconnect. It worked out well and we managed without the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 February 2017

I'm not sure if we ever stayed at a LaQuinta before but we will not hesitate in the future. This place is terrific! We planned on staying one night and wound up staying 3. The location which is approximately1 1/2 miles from the wharf is perfect. We walked everywhere-attractions, restaurants, beach. Our room was spacious, spotless,comfortable. The breakfast was okay-typical...

Thank you for your wonderful five star review! I was pleased to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay and Santa Barbara. I appreciate your kind comments in regards to Aranxta, she truly takes pride in providing a memorable stay for our guest!

I was very impressed with the room and entire hotel grounds. The pool was perfect for our 18 month old, it has a large 2ft deep section that she played in. Everyone we encountered was pleasant and seemed genuine. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Santa Barbara!

Really loved the La Quinta Inn & Suites at Santa Barbara. Great location (on State St) even if it's not by the beach. Incredibly convenient to visit at UCSB and to tour Santa Barbara. Very comfortable rooms. Incredibly nice and courteous staff

Beautiful area but Very expensive area to vacation. May not return again. Have gone elsewhere and paid only $65 with AARP discount for hotels. Restaurants in the area were also very expensive. Recreation options were twice what I pay at home.

I apologize for the missteps and poor communication during your stay with us. Our standards are much higher and we clearly did not meet them or provide what you deserve. Our staff has a “ Here for you attitude”, which we demonstrated at times for you, but clearly missed on other occasions. If you are willing to give us another...

This hotel was very comfortable and quaint. The lobby and pool area are attractive and the rooms large. Sleeping is great with large opening windows and quiet neighborhood. Covered parking is provided. Numerous restaurants and tourist sites are within easy walking distance. Went to the market for lunch and to the theater for a movie. View of mountains from the...

We had a 2 queen bed room for two nights, it was very clean and quite spacious and modern. The lobby was clean and bright. Breakfast was ok, the continental part was fine.

This is one of our favorite La Quintas in the entire chain! Brett, the manager, is incredibly progressive in his treatment of the property, staff, and guests.
