Great value La quinta is towards the top of state street so is a bit of a walk towards the beach. With that in mind, either be prepared to walk a lot or take a short lyft ride. Rooms were clean and conveniently located across store from a little market. My only complaint is that when I lost my keys I was not ...

We had a good stay overall. I loved all of the windows in our room. The houses are beautiful. The grounds are nice. It's quite pretty overall. The guests were generally quiet. Breakfast is quite basic. There is very little variety. The wine and hors d'oevres is nice, but again basic and it's almost the same daily. I really ...

Beautiful hotel in the perfect location. I was upgraded to a king balcony suite which added to the elegance of the room. I was also able to check-in before noon which was totally unexpected. Staff were super friendly too. I will definitely

Quiet and quaint My wife and I came here on recommendation by my brother for our baby moon. They mistakenly put us in a smaller room but quickly placed us in our proper room. The staff was very kind and the grounds itself exuded a very relaxing old world aura and charm. It felt like stepping into 1874, with all the ...

Nice Hotel Close to Santa Barbara Downtown Really cute hotel with a helpful staff. Loved the courtyard and all of the special touches in the room. Also appreciated that the room didn't have a hotel room feel to it. It was cozy, comfortable, and had a fireplace. The breakfast was good and the kitchen staff was very kind. I was there with my ...
