This is a very comfortable choice in a quieter part of Santa Barbara, without being too far from the action of downtown. The property has a lovely pool area, and there are some beautiful parks very nearby. Our dog enjoyed the stay as well.

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...

Relatively clean (found some wrappers on wall side of bed) and quiet. Stood on the annex outside room. bed was comfortable. Parking was easy. Staff was helpful and available. And more than that, it was reasonable priced given the normal hotel fees. Would stay again.

Apparently they've recently remodeled, because the rooms were beautiful! And the hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. It's also walking distance to a lot of great shops/dining options on State Street, and only a short drive to the wharf. I would definitely stay here again if I'm back in the area.

Great choice. Pet friendly. There are many Christian people in this town, and I have enjoyed my time with each and every one. Just pass through the town, and you will see His presence. Blessings from your neighbor.

This La Quinta is quite special. Even as a regular La Quinta customer, i found this one a step above even some of their best. It was an original designed older mid century modern hotel updated to be current. Great location walking distance to most things in downtown and surrounding downtown area. Wonderfully clean lobby and room. Loved the two...

Arrived at the hotel on a Thursday and was greeted by a beautiful and inviting exterior. The staff, Brett and his team, were wonderful!
