We stayed at Holiday Inn Express for a summer trip and we really enjoyed our stay. We ordered pizza and the staff was very nice and accommodating to us. The rooms are spacious and clean. We also enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. They have free breakfast with ample amount of food and variety. The service was exceptional.

We booked the bigger room with fridge and microwave. Modern and very comfortable. Nice little outdoor pool and hot tub, good guest laundry and very helpful front desk. Free parking. It backs onto Hwy 101 and in fact our room faced it, but we didn't notice any noise. You can walk to one end of the beach through a private... More

Booked a room last minute for a quick family getaway. Called around 12 to get early check in. Surprised when the girl who answered said our room wasn't ready and that the maids were on lunch and won't be back for an hour! Came at 330 to check in and our room still wasn't ready so we went to the... More

This hotel is near the Carpinteria bluffs nature preserve and the seal sanctuary which is closed to public for now. We enjoyed the 0.06mile walk to the beach. The breakfast wasn't really that good, the bread and pastry section was empty when we ate breakfast at around 7:15am.

Booked through AAA and got a great rate! Free breakfast, wonderful selection for breakfast. Pool was enjoyable, a little dirty but nothing that stopped us from enjoying!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on July 23, 2016. We paid a lot...$330 a night, which was really expensive, but I guess the area is expensive (the Motel 6 was like $160 a night). Our room was really nice. It felt like a really nice Hyatt. The bathroom was beautiful, like something out of a home renovation show.... More

Was moving our daughter home from college and needed a room for the night. Rooms in this area are very expensive during the spring months. This room was a great price and included a separate sitting area and a warm breakfast with lots to choose from. Will definitely stay here again.

Our room overlooked the swimming pool with a large family reunion including dozens of young children in progress. Our room was adequate, quiet and comfortable. The hotel, though old, was clean and had that "cared-for" look. The room came with breakfast that was excellent - including everything you could think of from bacon and eggs to fresh fruit, pancakes, sweet... More

I like this hotel well enough. The breakfast is very good and filling (though served on paper plates and with plastic utensils). I used to live a few blocks away and we go back to visit often. Last week, I was staying again with my preteen daughter. The back door from the parking lot was not locking. You did not... More

Our family of five drove from LA to San Francisco over the course of 7 nights. Our first stop was at the Holiday Inn Carpinteria. After a LONG day of sightseeing in LA (arriving LAX at 7:30 am), we drove to Carpinteria late that night so that our next day's travel to Hearst Castle would be more reasonable. It was... More
