"Clean, upgraded, off the beaten path"

The quick: clean, relatively quiet (depending on other guests), new upgrades, I would stay again. More: Before booking, I read the hotel was going through upgrades and there were past noise issues. When we stayed this past week, construction was done and not an issue. Very clean, brand new furniture, facilities, everything. It was kind of fun being some of the first in a new room. The rooms are very modern and roomy (we got a king room facing the pool). Beds were very comfy and plenty of pillows. Staff was friendly and interested in satisfying customers. The pool towel hamper by the pool was empty and they showed up with more right after they were notified. One night, a bus full of teenagers showed up and were making an inordinate amount of noise in the pool in the evening. We called the front desk, they acknowledged our complaint and asked the pool users to lower the noise. They did. Breakfast was your normal hotel breakfast. Danish, toast, bagels, waffles, cereal, etc. But again, a very clean, neat area that was well stocked. I had to use the gift shop for some sundries I forgot and the prices weren't outrageous. My husband and I enjoyed the location. We're in our early 40s and liked that the hotel was on the main street but situated enough away from the city noise.

We stayed at the La Quinta Inn in Santa Barbara. It was very nice compared to the other La Quinta's I have stayed in. Very clean. 2 blocks from the Arlington Theater. We were kindly greeted by Nichole at the front desk, and had great service all weekend.

When I arrived from the SB airport via a cab, the driver said 'You picked a good one!' He was right. Excellent location on State St, convenient to major sights, museums, etc., restaurants, shopping. Bus #11 from the airport drops you off right at the hotel. The fifty-cent downtown trolley is just a few blocks away. Hotel staff very knowledgeable, friendly; rooms are clean, pool is heated during chilly weather.

My husband and I are really loving the La Quinta Inn & Suites that we have stayed at during our late winter/spring coast-to-coast trip across the USA. We have been frequent visitors to Santa Barbara and were delighted that the La Quinta could offer such reasonable rates for a motel in a convenient location. The room was large, clean and bed was comfortable. The motel was fairly busy as it was spring break, but it wasn't noisy at all. Being motel style, we were able to pull our car up to the first floor room. This was very convenient for us as we are traveling with our dog, bikes, and other travel equipment. This property is located within walking distance Alice Keck Memorial Gardens, which is a really lovely city park with beautiful gardens and a large pond with ducks and tons of turtles. It was a great place to walk our dog and we also noticed many families with children out enjoying nature. The nice folks at the front desk suggested a few restaurants that were within walking distance that had outdoor patios for dining with our dog. Since it was raining that day, we opted to just get take out from Cantwell's Deli and Market across the street from La Quinta. They have a large selection of gourmet food items and sandwiches. We did not try the pool, it was too chilly that day, but it looked nice. The complimentary breakfast was appreciated.

I've booked this hotel 20 March 2013 for one night 20/21 July 2013 for my family (2 adults and 2 children 10 and 11 years old). It was 11 PM Saturday evening when we reach hotel (after all day trip from San Francisco). They cancelled our reservation! They didn't help us to find something else. We were so tired... Our children slept in car. We found dirty motel close to LA after 3 hours looking for place for night. I don't recommend this place.
