Great hotel. It's in a good location. Close to the freeway access and also the beach. It's 10 minutes away from Santa Barbara and about 40 minutes from Solvang. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We had a pull out couch as well. They offer a free breakfast as with most/if not all Holiday Inns. They had...

I'll start with the positives: Rooms are modern clean, spacious and well equipped. Location although next to the 101 freeway provides an ideal place to explore. Facilities in hotel super, pool, laundry and coffee at reception. All staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. Value for money Downside: Walls are ridiculously thin, like I've never experienced before. Kids running up and...

The desk staff was friendly, very helpful, and provided an excellent recommendation for dinner – Rincon Brewer. The second floor fitness facility has two treadmills, an elliptical, and a couple of pads for floor exercises and stretches; however, there is no stationary bike. We were in day 13 of our 17 day trek, and laundry needed to be done, and...

I visited Carpenteria for one night with my 7 year old daughter. I live only about an hour away, but just didn't want to go camping... so we stayed in this hotel. It is clean and updated, but not next to the beach per se... you could walk about 1/2 mile to the beach, but I drove instead. It's an...

Peltzer Winery offered some tasty wine samples along with bread pairings that were terrific! Both are available on site to purchase, or you can go to the place that makes the bread (they will give you directions) and buy even more. Favorite was the Asiago cheese and pesto bread! Favorite wines "all of them"! Zinfandel was excellent as was the...

We had a very nice room that was large enough for two adults and two dogs. There is nice sitting area and large bathroom. We had two queen beds, but there was still enough room. It was quiet even with all the dogs staying there. Bacon for breakfast was great. People are courteous.

This hotel sits right next to HWY 101 so you do hear the freeway noise. That said, I found that if you leave the air conditioning/fan on continuously it does drown out the noise pretty well. We were there in January and the pool and jacuzzi were heated and the deck area is nice. There is also a decent workout...

Great hotel...everything about this holiday in was just great...better than your run of the mill Holiday Inn. Nice pool and public area's in the hotel. 10 minute walk to the town for the local shops and restaurants. 20 minute walk to the great beach. Definitely check out the Burger takeaway just up from the beach it's awesome....it's called the "Spot"

A bit overdue, but I still remember when my family and I stayed here like it was yesterday. Stayed here over the New Year's weekend for a 1 night stay on our way back to LA.

I was in the area for a meeting in Santa Barbara, and having a rental car and being budget-minded, found a good-quality room in Carpinteria for $40 less per night than Santa Barbara. The front desk staff took good care of me. Breakfast was well-done, always well-stocked and clean. I had originally booked the room for three nights, and changing...
