This hotel was booked for a recent business trip by the company that brought me into town. The hotel was clean, the rooms were a good size with plenty of room for both clothing and to work. The cleaning crew was quite efficient and very pleasant. Now this hotel is also located right along a busy highway so the rooms...

My wife and I enjoyed this hotel. The lobby/hotel grounds were clean, the staff did a great job, the rooms were nice, and the pool area was perfect. And their breakfast was also very good; much better than we expected. The beach was very close and we parked literally just steps away from the beach making it very easy to...

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...

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...

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.

The hotel and staff were great. Nice comfortable rooms. Large rooms! Sitting area with sleeper sofa and coffee table. Fridge, microwave, free parking, free WIFI! 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! Cleanliness, of all the facilities were kept up....

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....

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.
