Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of La Quinta Inn & Suites

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"Great for Tourists and Leisure Groups"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Great tourist hotel in the heart of Santa Barbara’s historic downtown area. Has recently re-branded into a La Quinta, so the entire property has gone through a complete renovation and will continue until March 2014. Property has 68 rooms with either a king, 1 queen or 2 double beds and the option of interior or exterior corridors. There is a free continental hot breakfast, free Wi-Fi in all the rooms & public spaces, a fitness center, business center, local pantry style store, outdoor pool & jacuzzi and ample free parking. Everything is walking distance, lots of stores & shoppes, restaurants, short drive to the beach and other local attractions. Close to the 101 freeway.

Verified Reviews of La Quinta Inn & Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Fantastic Hotel for our Wedding Party."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Scott, the GM, gave us an excellent rate for our wedding group, honored the rate for our guests arriving early and extending their stay and even upgraded our room to a suite complimentary. We bused our guests from the hotel to the venue and were allowed to post signage. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to bars, restaurants and shops on State St. We were allowed to remain in the pool area with our friends and family late at night as long as the noise level was low. The hotel has been completely remodeled, lobby and pool area look great. Rooms were huge, clean and appeared brand new. Bathrooms and showers, large and clean. Beds were so comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the hotel so much we even returned for another night since the wedding. I would highly recommend this hotel for weddings and other large groups!
