This hotel was in the process of finishing being refurbished. Rooms were attractively decorated with good lighting, comfortable beds and choice of firm/soft pillows. There were good washing and drying facilities. The outdoor heated swimming pool and jacuzzi had comfortable poolside furniture. Complimentary breakfast was as per HI standard. Efficient welcome from reception staff. Usual high service was dented by...

Our most recent trip to the Carpinteria/Santa Barbara area reminded me that I needed to take a moment to write about this wonderful hotel. Because we have family and friends in the area, our family has stayed at this hotel many times over the years. We have wonderful memories of playing in the pool, relaxing in our freshly cleaned rooms,...

Dear pepeingle, Thanks for your review of your recent visit to our hotel and community.

I stayed at the hotel for 5 nights on a business trip, but having some serious separation anxiety from my baby I brought her with me. The room had a crib ready to go, per my request, but I would recommend bringing your own crib sheets. The staff are some of the nicest and friendliest I have ever met. The...

We took the Amtrak to Carpinteria and stayed at this hotel. The hotel is clean. The rooms are adequate. The bed was comfortable and the price was very reasonable. The location is not too far from the main part of the town. We made use of the local shuttle city bus system. It runs up and down Carpinteria Ave and...

Professional Doormen, Front desk staff, and Breakfast attendant. Room was clean, quiet, great location. Stayed for just a night when passing thru SB and the parking was a little slim but for its location it was perfect.

Easy check in. Lots of parking near door to room. Clean room. Very comfortable bed. Friendly staff. Easy on/off highway. Lots of choices included with breakfast. A great small town place to stay between 2 larger cities Santa Barbara and Ventura.

Stayed here on business for a week and had a pleasant stay. The rooms have been newly renovated - new furniture, flooring, granite counter tops, new TV. The breakfast buffet was good, fast and free. Eggs and cinnamon rolls were offered daily, along with a meat option. I would definitely stay here again.

Little rough check in process but after that everything went well. We arrived a little early at 1:30 pm and was told to come back at 3:00 to check in. I have never had that happen before, usually they will check you in but you will not get a room until later when they are ready. We sat in the...

I spent 4 nights January 8-11, 2014. It was the headquarter hotel for a Motor-sports event held in town. 32 people attended that event. My room was clean and everything worked OK, except the TV. It would not turn on. After 2 calls to the front desk, I finally made progress re-booting the system. Then the volume would not work...

Dear vettefinderjim, Thank you for staying at our hotel and taking the time to share your experience. We loved having all the classic Corvettes in our parking lot!
