Clean hotel, wonderful for families

Posted Sep 12, 2014
Pros: Clean and comfortable. Great breakfast!
Cons: Room temperature we were not able to regulate. It was set at 78 all the time!
Location: Located in Carpinteria, CA. The beach is nearby and you can go sailing, kayaking (very very cheap for college students) Santa Barbara is only 12 min
Hotel was clean and modern. Beds very comfortable, Breakfast had eggs, sausage and so much more! The fitness center was great! The only thing is we could not regulate the room temperature, it was set at 78 all the time. Other than that, would definitely come back.

Nice hotel near Santa Barbara

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Our party of two adults and two kids stayed in this Holiday Inn hotel on 13-15 August 2014. The room was clean and cozy, good breakfast. Overall it's nice and convenient place to stay if you visit Santa Barbara for couple of days. Expect your feet having tar stains if you walk on nearby beaches!

Great Hotel

Posted Aug 15, 2014
Pros: It was clean and quite, we stayed with my family and we all enjoyed our stay.
Location: It was close to areas to go walking, shopping, and site see. We went to Santa Barbara Zoo and only took 18 min to get there.
Great Hotel, close to the beach and other areas. Many great restaurants close by and areas to go on walks.

California Coastal Trip

Posted Aug 14, 2014
The property was very conveniently located, nicely renovated and super clean. The staff was very accommodating, pleasant and caring. We were 1st placed in a room with a King on the back of the hotel, but could hear the highway. The front desk manager gladly moved us to a 2nd floor unit on the opposite side of the hallway, which was very comfy and quiet. The only change we would have requested would have been that the heavy closed completely rather than only partially. We understand that it was designed to be decorative but, this design let in too much light. Great location if planning a trip to Santa Barbara, which is only 10 minutes away! Beautifully decorated; perfect Free breakfast; delicious fruit in the lobby and just right for a night or two.

Good room. Breakfast room too small.

Posted Aug 9, 2014
Cons: Breakfast.
Two double beds worked well for our family. Clean. Breakfast was ok, but room designated for it was too small. Carpinteria was nice town. Location of hotel on a main Road passing through the town, but beach not far away. Santa Barbara only 10 miles or so away.

Great staff and very nice accommodations

Posted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: Location and breakfast
Cons: The air conditioning is either On or Off. Sometimes I like the white noise of just a fan. Their system did not allow that.
Location: It's in Carpinteria, California! Probably one of the best Beach Towns in the world!
Excellent staff. Perfect location. Easy access to the main town. Close to the beach and restaurants.

Location: beach and town close by, but choice of eateries poor. Had to drive to Santa Barbara for fine dining
Nice and clean with comfortable beds and lots of pillows. Disappointed that I booked a smoking room but hotel does not allow it. Had to go to parking lot. Expedia needs to check into that. Most places in Ca does not allow it anywhere we found out.

Very Nice

Posted Jul 21, 2014
Cons: called to confirm late check-in. Took to long to locate reservation because it was made through Expedia. Could do better with conformation info
Great place to stay near a great beach. Hotel very clean and updated.
