I wasn't happy to be in a hotel where you approach your room from an open stairway. And then at 2 a.m. there was knocking on my door that really scared me. I ignored it and it stopped and then came back and left me very shaken and wide away at 2 a.m. So I will never stay there again... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us! I am so sorry you had to deal with a disturbance in the middle of the night, that is unacceptable! I will personally investigate the circumstances with my overnight staff. Thank you again for taking the time to review your stay. More

Let's start with pre-arrival. First, I called the hotel multiple times to talk about the room type I was booking. I wanted to book the two queen and a queen pull out sofa for 6 ladies who were celebrating our birthdays. I confirmed that 6 people COULD stay in the rooms multiple times, and that the bed sizes were QUEENs.... More

I apologize for the missteps and poor communication during your stay with us. Our standards are much higher and we clearly did not meet them or provide what you deserve. Our staff has a “ Here for you attitude”, which we demonstrated at times for you, but clearly missed on other occasions. If your willing to give us another shot,... More

Stayed for one night as part of a Roadtrip. Staff were very welcoming and helpful on arrival. Parking only $10 overnight. The location is just off state street, but a good 20 minute walk from the main hustle and bustle of Santa Barbara. The hotel has a motel look about it, but the rooms are very spacious - a tad...

This was my second stay at this La Quinta. The lobby is light and bright. Rooms are updated and great bathrooms. Love the walkability to restaurants. Rooms nicely done. Our dogs were comfortable at this location with lots of interesting walks nearby.

Great hotel in the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. Super friendly staff, newly renovated lobby and breakfast room. I used the beautiful pool everyday. The waffle maker at breakfast worked well. I enjoyed the ehhs and sausage too.

Convenient spot right on State Street. Great little pool, breakfast included (and a little market directly across the street), and $10 per night parking. Rooms are modern but have a/c units that are a bit loud and don't completely help with humidity. Queen double rooms are spacious and plenty large enough for 4. About a 15 minute walk to the... More

We had not been to Santa Barbra for over 20 years. We could not afford to stay at an expensive hotel, La Quinta is priced right for the area and location to downtown. The rooms are spacious and the grounds are well kept. Breakfast was served every morning from 7 to 10 am. I would stay there again!

In all fairness, the 3 star rating mostly reflects value for the money paid- the rate for our two night weekend stay was over $850 including taxes and for that rate, I would not stay again. The location is pretty convenient as you can walk to the main part of State Street in about 15 minutes and you can catch... More
