Best Western Plus Carpinteria Inn

"Convenient, well kept hotel "
Carpenteria is a small town just south of Santa Barbara. It has a large public beach which used to be known as the "world's safest beach." For whatever reason, I no longer saw that claim on billboards where it used to be. The hotel is immediately off of the U.S. 101 freeway offramps and a short drive (2-3 minutes) to the beach. It is an older hotel but is nicely maintained and has a beautiful inner courtyard and an on-site restaurant among its attractions. Many of the rooms open on to the courtyard or to balconies overlooking the courtyard. Ask for one of those if you can. Our room was at the back of the hotel and the window looked out over the nearby freeway -- not the most idyllic feature of the area. (The room was euphemistically described as having a "mountain view" which was true but the mountains were quite a ways away while the freeway was only a few yards away.) The road noise was audible but with the AC unit on (this was in July) it became less noticeable. Other than that, we had no complaints about the room. There are 3 floors of rooms arranged in a U shape around the courtyard and there are elevators in at least two of the corners of the building. We did not try the restaurant as we prefer to explore local restaurants of which there are several within a few minutes drive.

nice rooms and very clean. Only problem was noise level, our room was right by the parking lot so there was constant noise from people coming and going.

"Nice room and location but..."
Once inside the building the room was quite nice and we were happy for what we paid. However, getting into the room was difficult and confusing. This is related to the Hyatt around the corner so you have to check in there which is either a 5 minute walk or a short drive but there are no signs telling you that when you drive in. The hotel is seperate from the main hotel, which is fine since you are paying less. They simply need to make that much much clearer.

"Nice hotel close to the edge of Solvang"
We enjoyed staying at the Kronborg as it was on the edge of Solvang, CA, but within easy walking distance to the center of town.. We appreciated that it was quiet at night despite the pool being in the courtyard of the hotel. The serve yourself breakfast was good and we appreciated being able to get protein based food like boiled eggs and yogurt, along with pastries and waffles.

"Love Love Love the Lavendar Inn!"
My daughter and I stayed overnight. We scheduled a wine tasting tour in Santa Barbara and found this hotel on Expedia and Im glad we did! We came back after our tour and checked in around 4:00pm. We were welcomed with a bottle of Chardonnay and Champayne in the mini fridgeand a lovely personal note again welcoming us. I went to the pool to unwind and they were serving wine, cheese and crakers in the lobby.We decided to try one of the restaurants in the Harbor. We chose Brophy Bros. It was a 5 minute walk and was right on by the dock. It was great food and the view was breathtaking! After dinner we went back to the Inn. The bed was very comfortable.I woke up and went to the lobby for coffee. They served fresh fruit, cereal, bakery items which I enjoyed out on the lobbys front patio. I felt like we were staying with friends. Staff was so friendly even the gardeners said hello. I will never forget this wonderful experience and I will be back!

"Work week stay"
I went to this hotel because it was convenient to where I was working. Its was pleasantly close to the freeway with easy access. It's also located within walking distance to a convenience store and several local restaurants. More of a motel due to the outside access to the rooms, it still had a nice feel and was well maintained. The beds were comfortable and the staff attentive. They had a wine and cheese gathering each night and continental breakfast in the morning. The Wi-Fi was also included and was very fast. Price was competitive as well. Only negative is its near the railroad tracks and when the train hits the horn, it can be annoying. Fortunately, that only happened once.
