Hotels near Santa Barbara's Main Attractions

Book at room in La Quinta's accommodation downtown, and you'll be within easy reach of many of Santa Barbara's attractions. Visit the iconic Mission Santa Barbara, a stunning pink-and-white church north of State Street, built by Spanish missionaries in the 1700s.

From here, it's a short walk to the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, then a quick zip down State Street to the Spanish Colonial Santa Barbara County Courthouse, where you can climb the 85-foot watch tower for sweeping views down to the ocean.

Hop on a bus to the waterfront and Stearns Wharf, a historic wooden pier lined with seafood restaurants and quirky gift shops. Visit the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History's Sea Center, where you can get up-close-and-personal with a variety of sea life.

Santa Barbara's Shopping and Nightlife

Head out from your La Quinta hotel and make your way to Santa Barbara’s upmarket shopping. Check out the Historic State Street Plaza, an open-air mall famous for its many designer brands. Or go a few blocks south to Paseo Nuevo for more wallet-friendly high-street names.

After a busy day sightseeing or shopping in Santa Barbara, head back to your downtown La Quinta hotel for a swim in the pool, before venturing out to lower State Street and its many SoCal restaurants and craft beer bars.
