5 / 5 Excellent
Very nice. Just spent 1 night, arrived after dark and left early, so didn't get to use many amenities, but breakfast was very good and room was clean and comfortable.
A verified traveler stayed at Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Carpinteria, an IHG Hotel
This place is perfect - exactly as described and pictured. Across from a very nice, quiet beach and walking distance to wonderful restaurants great for all meals. Well decorated and plenty of space. Sitting on the patio watching the sunset is as good as it gets. We will be back and hope to check out the other Beachin' Companies properties as well. Thank you.
