Loved the room and entire hotel. They had men welding and grinding outside of our door for the 2 days that we were there. They should have moved us to another room. Everything else about the room was great. Locations was wonderful also. Management should have been more thoughtful.

What a great place to stay at a very reasonable price. Super clean, nice staff, attractive property, pretty pool area. Breakfast was meh but it is included. We had one of the one story attached rooms with a patio. Ok, the patio looks at the parking area but still it was a nice place to sit.

We enjoyed our stay in the beautiful LaQuinta in Santa Barbara on State St. It is by far one of the best LaQuintas in which we have stayed. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The breakfast was above average and they even offered soy milk and a nice selection of teas. Excellent location.

Located on State Street makes the La Quinta an ideal location for a stay in Santa Barbara. The desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. Our room was quite large. The bed was comfortable. They have a nice breakfast buffet in the morning. A great place to stay.

Whoa - this is an old 1960's era motel that has been re-done beautifully. The rooms and bathrooms are absolutely enormous; and they are clean and very well appointed.

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...
