This little hotel was pleasing the entire week I was there. The free breakfast was excellent. I found the staff to be very standoffish. They may have been trying to give me my privacy, but I got the sense that they didn't care if I was there or not. I found this troubling. However, I was not treated rudely I... More

The hotel itself is pretty nice except for cheap windows that aren't very soundproof. It has been remodeled and beds are fine, decor is nice, pool/spa area would be lovely but for the noise. There are train whistles, Hwy 101 (which is busy 24/7) and during the day, road construction. The a/c is one of the quietest we have ever... More

It's been a long day on the road. You are looking forward to a quiet nap before dinner. Almost impossible at this place. Banging doors, loud chatter. You get the picture. When I spoke to the desk clerk, you would think I was being unreasonable. I don't get it. I wish Carpinteria had more options , as I would not... More

We booked this hotel blind, always tricky. Have to say really happy with it. The first impressions are always the best. The lobby is clean and bright, the staff helpful, smiling and knowledgeable and most of all quick. After a long trip following a 12 night shift, total time awake 38 hours. The last thing you need is a slow... More

This hotel was booked for a recent business trip by the company that brought me into town. The hotel was clean, the rooms were a good size with plenty of room for both clothing and to work. The cleaning crew was quite efficient and very pleasant. Now this hotel is also located right along a busy highway so the rooms... More

My wife and I enjoyed this hotel. The lobby/hotel grounds were clean, the staff did a great job, the rooms were nice, and the pool area was perfect. And their breakfast was also very good; much better than we expected. The beach was very close and we parked literally just steps away from the beach making it very easy to... More
