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,...

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...

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...

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...

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...
