This hotel sits right next to HWY 101 so you do hear the freeway noise. That said, I found that if you leave the air conditioning/fan on continuously it does drown out the noise pretty well. We were there in January and the pool and jacuzzi were heated and the deck area is nice. There is also a decent workout...

Great hotel...everything about this holiday in was just great...better than your run of the mill Holiday Inn. Nice pool and public area's in the hotel. 10 minute walk to the town for the local shops and restaurants. 20 minute walk to the great beach. Definitely check out the Burger takeaway just up from the beach it's awesome....it's called the "Spot"

A bit overdue, but I still remember when my family and I stayed here like it was yesterday. Stayed here over the New Year's weekend for a 1 night stay on our way back to LA. As a rewards member, I chose this hotel based on reviews and affordability and I must say this place did not disappoint! Checked in...

I was in the area for a meeting in Santa Barbara, and having a rental car and being budget-minded, found a good-quality room in Carpinteria for $40 less per night than Santa Barbara. The front desk staff took good care of me. Breakfast was well-done, always well-stocked and clean. I had originally booked the room for three nights, and changing...

Very pleased with our room at this hotel. A step above most Holiday Inn Express, as they have double queen rooms separated by a half wall - with a couch, coffee table, a desk, and kitchenette in that area. It doesn't seem like it would be a big deal, but it is! The bathroom has one sink with ample room...

We stayed here because of the proximity to Santa Barbara. First of all, the staff was friendly, outgoing, and extremely helpful. We had to change our reservation to include a third person, and this was done with a smile and no problem. We were also given a different room after the first night because of the noisy guests at the...

We had a few days to get away over the New Year's weekend and decide to drive up the coast despite the impending rain. We choose this hotel for the convenience of location and availability on such a busy weekend. It was centrally located to the main part of Carpinteria. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub...

This Holiday Inn is a more affordable option when visiting Santa Barbara wine country. They have hook ups for your hybrid vehicles which is nice and a nice outdoor pool and spa. The rooms are in good condition. It is about a 30-40 min drive from wine country which may seem far; but if you buy a few bottles and...

I had to spend a week here on business and really enjoyed my stay. The facility has been renovated to a spa modern feel. The staff was friendly and accommodating. USA Today delivered to your door. Easy parking. Breakfast at 6:30am (or a little before) was a with real food. Eggs were not powdered, meats, to include turkey sausage, breads,...
