This place was just wonderful -- we loved the location (very close to restaurants and shopping on State Street), and the thoughtful touches everywhere. The room was cozy and homey, but not old-fashioned, with a beautiful and very comfortable canopy bed. The roof deck is amazing, and features a pool and hot tub, outdoor fireplace, lots of comfy seating (including seating away from the pool area), and a really great view. They have free bikes to borrow, coffee and tea in the lobby every morning, and a happy hour with wine nightly. It is not directly on the beach (it is a 1-mile walk or bike ride down State Street), but then none of the Santa Barbara hotels are. There's no on-site gym, but they give you access to a full-service gym next door. We would definitely return if we end up in the area.
We were there for a family wedding and our group had several rooms one and two-bedroom suites and double queens. The rooms were spacious and clean with bottles of water, fresh fruit, snacks and a good supply of coffee and teas. The staff was very helpful and always cheerful.
"Vacation at Santa Barbara, stayed at LaQuinta on s"
My wife and I recently stayed for a week at the LA Quinta Inn and Suites on state street in Santa Barbara CA. The accomdation were outstanding. Over the years we have stayed in numerous hotel's/motels but our stay at LA Quinta was the best. The staff's customer service skills from the front desk to housekeeping were outstanding. I would gladly stay and recommend LA Quinta to anyone looking for a well organized accommodation.

We had a fantastic time at Simpson House Inn. The national trust property is so well maintained and beautiful. We loved everything about it, the rooms, the food, the staff. The breakfasts were amazing and the afternoon teas of wine, homemade lemonade and appertizes are a must. We loved it here so much, we stayed an extra night. Even the beds are amazing, we had to purchase the pillows!!! Thank you so much to the beautiful staff who made our visit so memorable.
