I was surprised by how much I liked the hotel. It's nicer than other La Quinta's I've stayed in. The internet is fast, the rooms are modern and comfortable. It's just north of the main downtown area, but within walking distance. If you're a light sleeper, ask for an interior room because the street noise, especially in the morning, can be quite loud. […] Other than that, I had a great stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms are now absolutely fantastic looking! Right on State Street where everybody wants to be, shopping and restaurants and bars galore. Really like this hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Quaint boutique style hotel. Rooms have an upgraded feel to them. Perfect location to walk old town Santa Barbara. Pool was nice to lay by in the morning before check out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice update"
This hotel must have be updated recently because it's in really nice shape. It exceeded my expectations for a La Quinta. Very cute and modern. The location is just a bit out of the way, but it's a quick walk downtown or to the park with your kids.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great little place with excellent service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This La Quinta is fairly clean and conveniently located in Santa Barbara, especially at its price point. I stayed with LQ for the week while on a business trip, and overall had a positive experience. They seem to have recently renovated the hotel, so the facade and interior look more modern than other LQs. One of the biggest downsides was the incredibly […] noisy refrigerator in the room. It must be on its last leg because the motor was incredibly loud. I had to sleep with the TV on low to drown out the noisy refrigerator. Also, the room wasn't as clean as I hoped it would be––there were suspect brown splotches on the bathroom floor and the room's carpet could've used another vacuuming.

"Not A Bad Option"
This is my second stay at LQ SB. It's a good choice because you can walk to the majority of State Street dining and shopping options from this location. Cons: heated pool, but no hot tub. If you are placed not in the main building but instead are in the separate strip of rooms (110 - 128), you are likely to hear street noise, including buses and other […] traffic. Breakfast is continental, which means LOTS of bagels, very sweetened yogurts, waffles, etc, but nothing with protein like eggs or sausage or even fruit salad. Rooms are clean (tho small), staff service has been consistently good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very clean, nicely appointed, pet friendly. We really enjoyed our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Larger than expected room and bathroom and very clean. Bed extremely comfortable. Recent renovation was a definite plus. Very modern décor in common areas and in room. Breakfast was the usual LaQuinta breakfast and was very good. We would definitely return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"one complaint with the front desk"
Checking in on Sunday 3/30, I was asked to give a credit card for "incidentals" if there were to be one, I proceeded to give my M/C. However, on Checking-out Monday, around 11 a.m. I asked to have a receipt of $.00 balance, as I did not use the credit card for ANYTHING! Whatever we used in the hotel was ALL paid in cash. Therefore, I believe I should've […] been given a final $.00 Balance receipt. I was adamantly denied one by the front desk man. I susequently asked to speak with the manager. He insisted I did not have any balance as ALL purchases show as paid in CASH, and "they" do not give receipts with no balance. However, since "they" swiped my credit card when I came in, I wanted to make sure, there were no charges on my card. The man told me, I had to go through Hotels . com.....So, here it is....Can you please respond? Thank you....Miriam Corrigan Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great hotel on State. Clean and staff was awesome. No complaints.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice but expected more. Shows ageGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Was in Santa Barbara for a wedding and although I've driven by La Quinta many times, have honestly not looked twice at it. Upon some research I did get a look at the lobby, pool and rooms and decided to give it a try. The place is under some construction, which is what it is, but found our stay and the staff to be very helpful and the overall vibe, […] charming. Still not much to look at from the road, but very pleased once inside the doors and would gladly revisit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location and comfy beds"
We had a great stay at this hotel. The location is only a few blocks up State Street from Paseo Nuevo and the best shopping and dining areas. The interior of our room was new and well kept and modern in decor. The bed was extremely comfy and the lay out was designed. The only qualm would be the sliding glass door, which didn't provide much privacy but […] we had a great stay and we got a great deal in February. I totally recommend this hotel!

"close to down town"
the gym could of big bigger. the pool was real nice but had no spa. the continental breakfast was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Glad it was within walking distance of theatre"
The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. My two complaints are the refrigerator is our room buzzed and the restroom door is a sliding glass door. It's sexy and beautiful but I need my privacy in the restroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best of them all"
I drove cross country & stay with La Quinta for my dog. This one is by far the nicest.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Too noisy in the morning (6am-8am) from the garbage truck getting in and out of the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close of courthouse"
I had personal business to tend to at the Santa Barbara Courthouse and my hotel stay was superb!! The breakfast was delicious to start off a busy day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was nice! The hotel is currently undergoing renovation which is the only reason I gave the hotel facility/condition a 3. Staff was nice and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great location great price"
There is construction going on that stared at 7 am. It was horribly loud. Make sure construction is finished before stay. I had a new room and it was modern and beautifulGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice renovated hotel"
Stayed here for 4 nights over a December visit to California and was very pleased. There are a number of old motels in SB that are being renovated and this one is particularly nice, which a clean, bright boutique hotel look. The room is not huge, but the bathroom is particularly well done - spacious and nice looking. Nice TV, small fridge, the standard […] desk and chair, but also an arm chair and a very comfortable bed. The upper State St. location is a plus from my perspective - very quiet compared to the lower State scene, but still an easy walk from anything you'd want to do downtown. And you're well placed for a nice morning run up to the mission. There are some things you can't change in a hotel like this - the rooms open onto the exterior of the hotel, but it's really everything you'd need for a SB vacation and much nicer than the average two star hotel. I'd happily stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was great about our stay with the exception of the construction. I wish I knew that the hotel was under construction. Not noise I want to hear when on vaykayGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff was so helpful and stay was wonderfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice newly remodeled rooms but:"
The room we had was newly remodeled and was very elegant and modern. However, excessive street noise woke us up at 6am. The WIFI was intermitant and unusable. Parking was limited due to construction and there are not enough spaces to accommodate all guests. Things should improve once remodeling is completedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms were nice, however the shower head and handle we're not properly installed so they came off easily and water would go everywhere. There was construction going on so there was not enough parking for all the tenants, we had to park in the street. The breakfast was good, the design of the hotel was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great service and rooms"
The staff is very helpful and friendly and the rooms were spacious, recently renovated, clean and very comfortable. Great value for your money. And, at the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. I will definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Customer service was very good and the bed was super comfortable! Just note that it is a good twenty minute walk to the center of SB/State St. It is a nice walk if you're not in a hurry (and why should you be in Santa Barbara?)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Renovated rooms. Late check out and nice breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No drinking water in room, refrigerator in room sound so loud on and off waking me up all night , Good area easy to excess to shopping dinning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location to enjoy Santa Barbara"
This hotel is located toward top of State Street, with LOTS of shopping, restaurants, wine shops, etc in easy walking distance (the main shopping starts about a block down the street and continues for about a mile.) Or room was small (not even a table) and the bed was not the most comfortable but the hotel staff was helpful and friendly, everything […] was very clean, a simple breakfast is included and again, it's a GREAT location to enjoy Santa Barbara. Would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Outside door faced Cantwell's Market, so at 5am the delivery trucks showed up, and then the trash trucks. Remodel going on and nice, modern. Upscale bathroom and shower, but shower water pressure on floor three was very weak. But the beauty of Santa Barbara overshadowed any hotel negatives.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was walking distance to a lot of shops and restaurants. The hotel has been recently remodeled. Rooms were clean and bed was comfortable. Will definitely stay here again when visiting Santa Barbara!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly service, clean but old fashioned rooms"
The location on upper State Street is fine for walking the shopping district and restaurants; it is a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of the area so therefore quiet. Lobby and public areas are in a modern style and bright, but our room was a bit worn and old fashioned, with heavy wood furniture and a bit small, but very clean and adequate. The […] front desk people were great, friendly, & helpful. Didn't try the breakfast or pool, but that looked very clean and families were enjoying a swim. I would stay here again for the price.

"Nice Upgrade, 3 star for a 2 star price!"
With their recent upgrade, and ultra friendly staff, this property is one of my favorites in SB. We stayed on a busy holiday weekend and the new remodel looks great with a very contemporary look, and refresh of all the public facilities, including moving the front desk and creating a actual breakfast room / kitchen. No issues with noise or comfort, […] and centrally located to downtown Santa Barbara. its almost all you can ask for! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, with issues"
The room was clean and comfortable. But the bathroom sink drained so slowly that it filled all the way up and it took an hour or more to drain and then the pipe below leaked on the floor. I paid for a room with a refrigerator, coffee maker, and microwave but the room did not have a microwave. I was only there for one night so it wasn't much of an issue […] but this isn't what I paid for. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Totally Worth it"
So much better than the overpriced Hilton-SD-ResortSpa we stayed at after this. The bed, breakfast, location, everything was better at La Quinta!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A very nice, remodeled, and well located place!"
It is a very convenient location if you plan to visit the main streets of downtown Santa Barbara. You can walk to a lot of restaurants, shops, and historical sites from it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great cheap spot on State Street"
Booked last minute for NYE in Santa Barbara. Cheap rates, free breakfast, no parking fee. Walked 4 blocks to our party venue and stumbled back. Nice pool are to rehab the next morning. Rooms are date but beds are comfortable. Great value.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location and must stay at hotel."
My first time staying at LaQuinta and I must say it will my hotel choice for future stays when visiting Santa Barbara.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older hotel but being upgraded"
Older hotel but apparently in process of being upgraded. The lobby was the start. Now they must do something with the rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I will stay there again!!!"
Nice place. The rooms were freshly remodeled. You could almost smell the paint. No bath tub. We had no problem getting a parking spot. But I could see that the spaces are limited. Everything was maintained fine. Pool looked inviting. THE BEDS ARE THE MOST COMFORTABLE I HAVE EVER HAD. That was the best sleep we had on our week long journey. I will always […] stay there when in Santa Barbara. It was a nice walk to down town. Many restaurants to choose from. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Checked Out Early"
I had to check out of the room within 15 minutes of checking in. Could not enter room because lock did not woor. Had to wait for maintenance person to come. After traveling all day across country, did not want to wait for a maintenance man to get into my room. Checked out and went to a differenct hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
Not a bad place to stay. Close to the bars on State Street. Good if your looking for a getaway. Don't expect to be blown away with the room decor. Good price!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was okay...."
It was very convenient....we saw a show at the Granada Theatre...so it was walking distance...about 3 blocks. They had just renovated the lobby, which looked very cool....but the rooms seemed a throw back to yesteryear. We had a good rate, so for the money we spent, it was great, but I wouldn't have spent much more.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
