We've stayed here many times over the past several years. It's walking distance to town and the beach and the staff has always been wonderful. The new renovations are great. the rooms are clean and newly refurbished with refrigerators, microwaves and sinks. but you have to request them way ahead of time. The pool is small but well maintained and...

The bad reviews about the staff at this hotel are not true, every staff member I encountered was very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. I ended up in the room closest to the freeway and right next to the exit door that slams every time it is opened, which occurs frequently! After...

We stayed here for 3 nights. What a lovely quite hotel. The rooms were modern and clean, the bed was very comfy and the pool was ok. Carpinteria is a quite town and a lovely place to relax. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

We stayed with 3 kids and the room was just perfect for us, as we were looking for a family room. It wasn't big, but clean, and with two queen size beds and a sofa bed which converts to another double bed, so 6 people can stay there. There was a fridge and a TV in the room and a...

We stay at this hotel every summer and joke that it is our "beach house" because we are such regulars. What a surprise when we arrived last week to find the entire hotel remodeled! While the granite counters, new flooring, bedding, etc. is certainly impressive, the revamped gym is a huge bonus. After a run along the beach, it is...

Comfortable room (on the first floor to accommodate our four-legged friend). Sufficient nearby grassy areas for us to walk him. Wonderful breakfast with yummy egg options (of which I am normally not a fan) and Greek yogurt. Good location without the price tag of Santa Barbara.

We stayed here one night while visiting in Carpenteria. The room was very nicely decorated, all appeared new. Great bed and bedding - I slept so soundly! Our room faced the street and was very quiet. Awesome shower, fluffy bath towels, and nice lotion. For breakfast, we only had cinnamon rolls and coffee, but those rolls are heavenly! Altogether a...

We spent one night at the hotel on our way home from northern CA. The hotel has been recently remodeled and is beautiful. The rooms are large with a divider separating bed from "kitchen" area which is a microwave and refrigerator. Paper plates, etc are provided also. It is right off the 101 freeway but we did not have noise...

Reviewed 1 July 2014

Location is OK - Carpinteria has more character than say, Goleta, more interesting restaurants and better access to the beach. The hotel has large, somewhat institutional like rooms, decent beds and is close to downtown's restaurants, etc. The downside is the hotel is right off 101, it has thin walls and so you get road noise early in the AM....

Amazing hotel! Just was redone, and it sure doesn't remind me of a Holiday Inn! Beautiful rooms, comfortable furnishings - and lots of outlets in the room! I found the rooms and the hotel to be very clean - I use to work at a hotel, so I can be pretty difficult in this area. They even offer soft and...
