Clean, quiet hotel with great amenities!

Posted Jan 23, 2015
Pros: Pool & breakfast
Location: Santa Barbara 10 min away. Main street Carpinteria 2 min away. Nice beach & park. Great location.
Great value! Perfect spot for traveling families. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Best part was the massive warm breakfast. Couldn't ask for a better value there!

Cons: The breakfast was terrible. The food was not hot, the milk was frozen. The bacon was artifical. We came down at 8am and you were out of muffins.
The breakfast was terrible. The food was not hot, the milk was frozen. The bacon was artifical. We were there at 8am and you were out of muffins. The pancakes tasted like plastic. You advertise a roll away bed, but when we get there you tell us that it cannot be put into the room due to a fire hazard.

An Okay place to stay in Carpinteria

Posted Jan 12, 2015
Pros: Easy to find. Easy check in and check out. Breakfast was included. Room appeared to be clean.
Cons: Front desk personnel could be friendlier.
Quick, over-night trip with my wife and 3 kids (all under 5). Easy to find, just a minute or two from the freeway exit. First impression of the property was a good one, looks nice and safe from the street. Checked in and the front desk person wasn't rude but wasn't interested in small talk either. Quick check in. Parking was kind of strange with parallel parking in front and regular parking on the sides and back of building. Room was what was expected, nothing too fancy or large but looked and smelled clean. Breakfast the following morning was a continental hotel breakfast, nice that it was included but nothing stood out. Check out was quick. We'd stay here again.

Exceptional value

Posted Jan 12, 2015
I've now been to the Carpinteria Holiday Inn 3x. Each has been great. Most recently, I was able to spend just one night and I had forgotten how large and comfortable the rooms are. It's walking distance to the beach and to town.

Pleasantly Surprise!d!

Posted Dec 19, 2014
Came down with part of my family for nieces wedding expecting your average mid rate hotel. Amazingly surprised to find very friendly staff, beautiful clean rooms, great amenities such as microwave and refrigerator. Everything had been recently remodeled beautifully! The hot tub and pool were very clean and comfortable but the best part was the the morning breakfast. I was expecting a continental breakfast but it was quite a spread including eggs, bacon, turkey sausage, oatmeal,cold cereal, fruit, etc.... Just like momma used to make! Excellent! Highly recommended!

Mediocre at best

Posted Dec 17, 2014
Rooms are ok, but the carpet is ancient, gross, sticky, and dirty. The hotel is right off a busy (loud) highway. The staff are very nice, though. It was good for me for a one night stay, but I wouldn't stay here for a long period of time. The best part for me was that they allowed dogs.
