We had a hard time finding this hotel, even though it was in plain sight. The reason being is that it is not your usual LaQuinta Inn. In this case, different is good. It was a beautifully done hotel with excellent rooms and grounds.

As soon as we walked into the lobby our mouths dropped. All we could say is WOW. This is an older hotel transformed into a modern, conveniently located mid priced La Quinta. We always stay at La Quinta properties, and this was one of their finest. It had a great breakfast, waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon and the other extras. The...

This was our first time staying at a La Quinta Inn. The rooms were updated and clean. I was able to check in early and the staff was very helpful. I have since booked with La Quinta for future stays in Bakersfield and Arizona.

My husband and I stayed at La Quinta in Santa Barbara and found it to be very accommodating to all our needs! Our room and bathroom were very large and newly remodeled. The proximity to downtown and all the activities along State street within walking distance made our stay so enjoyable! Free breakfast was very substantial! Would highly recommend the...

We have stayed here before when passing through Santa Barbara. I think last time we had a room with 2 queens for $145. This time the only room available was a king executive [event in town] and it was over $200. I had the same type of room in San Diego for less than $100 a night. Not sure of...

Enjoyed an overnight stay with my cousin and a friend during the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. We had a late arrival (around midnight) with no complications at the front desk. We had to double-up to sleep but the beds were very comfortable. The heater was quiet and we had it on all night, quite comfortably. The toilet was a...

Inn is clean, quiet, and well staffed. Good breakfast choices included. Needs more comfortable seating and better equipped rooms. The luggage stands were missing from our room. Extra charge to park, $10, was annoying.

We stayed here for one night recently on our way back to Los Angeles.

Coming from the Fess Parker Hotel Ocean view Room (since they were sold out for NY Eve) I was not expecting much from La Quinta. It was our only option since we were attending an event at The Granada. But I was very pleased with our room (the only one left). The hotel has a very nice feel to it....
