We loved the hotel, the service, quality of room decor and cleanliness were great, however, the breakfast could have been better, it was a little meager, no eggs, sausage or bacon. The waffles were good though.

Short overnight stay while attending an event in Santa Barbara. Walking distance to numerous restaurants yet far enough away from the hubbub to get rest. Patio and pool area relaxing. Have future events to attend and will stay there again.

It took three rooms before we settled on the right one. The first one was completely hidden in a corner with no light, the second the TV didnt work. The third one was fine except for ants crawling around. When I booked it online i thought i was getting the deluxe model with the seating arrangement since that's what it shows when you reserve a double queen room.

I really like the room and the service was great. Comfortable room with quality furnishings and a great AC unit. The door to the bathroom kind of lacked privacy, but that could be overcome. The service was great and the hospitality was above average. I would certainly stay there again if I ever go to the Arlington.

I have stayed in some much nicer places in Santa Barbara, but for the business or other traveler on a budget, it's hard to see how this hotel shouldn't be at the top of your list. Convenient location downtown just off State Street, easy in and out with parking close to the lobby (just make sure you have a compact car or SUV, and get there before the choicest ones off Arrellaga are all gone). Friendly staff, wine and beer and munchies sold in a kiosk just off the lobby, ice machines on each floor, Keurig coffee makers, fridge, microwave. ADA compliant bathrooms hilariously huge but just fine. If you don't need pampering or don't need an ocean view (I had a great view of the mountains of Montecito), this is a great place to consider. And the view of the pool out the lobby made me regret leaving my swim trunks at home.

Hotel was clean and beds comfortable. Staff was friendly. Only drawback was the frosted glass sliding door between the room and bathroom which didn't provide much privacy. Made showering & dressing a little awkward since our teen-age son staying in the room with us. Easy walk to downtown shops. Would stay again as long as kids not along.

The room was fine, with very comfortable beds and good quality bedding , fluffy towels too,but refrigerator in room was so noisy that I had to unplug it to sleep at night. Breakfast was adequate, with dyi waffles and other goodies. Would have been better had a microwave been available to heat water more for oatmeal,( although there was a microwave in our room.) I would definitely stay here again. Biggest negative : elevator needs to be updated. Small and slow for size of facility.

Enjoyed my stay at La Quinta. The location was close to the old movie theater and some amazing restaurants. It was right on State street and an easy walk to all the great venues. Shuttle was nearby too. The hotel was upgraded and everything was very nice. Beautiful swimming pool. Shower was amazing. Room was comfortable and they actually had a Keurig coffee maker in the room. Only complaint was the noisy fridge. Hopefully they will upgrade the fridges too!

The hotel was conveniently located on State Street, an easy stroll to shopping and restaurants. Our room had lots of room, with two queen-sized beds and a large bathroom. Breakfast was included in the price of our room, and one could eat indoors or outside next to the pool. Our room looked out over the pool area, which was pretty and inviting. The staff was very helpful when we checked in and out. Wish we could have stayed longer!

While communicating with staff, for the most part, are friendly and polite. However, I was not automatically greeted with a smile. It was a hot weekend and patrons utilized the pool often. However, I did not see it extremely packed to account for lack of dry towels available. I had to go to the front desk and ask for some on a couple of different occassions. Breakfast was nice, but coffee pot was empty and I heard a manager complain to staff there are too many eating patrons. At that point I was afraid to approach and ask for more coffee.

Shared a room this weekend with family for UCSB graduation. Pool area is nice, light breakfast is included, and room was spacious. Our only draw back was the bathroom that was not completely private. It was a frosted glass sliding door, not a traditional door that shut completely or locked. None the less, it was a great place to stay.

What drew us to La Quinta Santa Barbara was its affordable price and convenient location, and we were pleased to discover that everything else about the hotel was of a high standard. The staff were kind and generous in letting us have an early check-in, and afterwards gave us the privacy we desired for our week-long stay. The room was not beautiful, but it was well set out, clean and entirely satisfactory for the price. We hadn't paid much attention to the fact that the La Quinta Santa Barbara had a pool when we chose the hotel, but it turned out to be one of our favorite features as we visited during a heat wave. Overall, we had a very good experience here.

We stayed hear for weekend getaway to Santa Barbara. Nice location on State Street. Its still a good walk from main strip of State Street with stores and restaurants. Hotel was nice and breakfast was good. Only complaint is we got room facing State Street so could hear cars driving by at night and in the morning. Recommend if you stay hear to request room not facing the street.

Good, close to everything (walking distance if you don't mind walking a bit). A couple improvements I would suggest would be to put a mirror outside of the bathroom for us ladies to get ready. Also, the AC is a bit loud. Overall great stay for the price and location.

This hotel was great, the room was very up-to-date and it felt that the room was recently renovated.

The rooms were a bit small but were clean, updated and nice. Hotel from the outside is deceiving but once you go in you'll be pleasantly surprised! It's a few blocks from the happening portion of state street it just far enough away to take you out of it all.
