The hotel has recently been renovated and updated quite tastefully. It is located within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The hotel staff are quite welcoming and attentive to your needs. I highly recommend this property to the business traveler and the leisure traveler.

La Quinta in Santa Barbara is located in a good location, nearby to shops and interesting places to visit. The front desk staff was always very personable, especially John. The room was clean, but the bathroom sink is so high that a short person would have a difficult time trying to use the sink. Maybe need to keep a footstool...

We enjoyed a brief vacation in beautiful Santa Barbara and stayed at this hotel. It has recently been renovated in the mid-century modern style and it was very tastefully done up. We took the Amtrak from San Jose to Santa Barbara for a quick weekend getaway. This was a perfect hotel to stay as it was close to downtown (no...

I was there for 13 days and enjoyed my experience. It was handy that there was an excellent market and deli across the street. The location was convent to the workshop I was taking and was within walking distance. The parking was easy access as well.

I would like to give 5 stars because of the dog friendliness & cleanliness in the pet area near the bungalows. We, unfortunately were given the key to a room that was still occupied & when I entered there was a dog on the bed with his head under the pillow. Lucky for me that he wasn't mean or the...

I couldn't find anything else in Santa Barbara that was priced right and had seemed to keep the place somewhat modern as compared to the hotels by the beach. This made for a short walk to the restaurants and bars on State Street. Rooms were clean and well kept, although I don't think I would want to be below the...

I spent ten days here to attend to family matters and I cannot say enough about the friendly and helpful staff, especially Jonathan at the front desk during the day. The hotel itself was very nice for its price point. The rooms were comfortable, although the decor was not special, and were kept very clean. There is a refrigerator, microwave...

The rooms are in great shape - perhaps recently remodeled. Loved the location because our teenage kids could walk to shops, restaurants, and a bit further, could reach the beach. The price wasn't bad for Santa Barbara and included breakfast (eggs, toast, bomb waffles, and breakfast meats) and parking. Safe location. Friendly and helpful hotel staff. The only drawback to...
