Easy check in. Lots of parking near door to room. Clean room. Very comfortable bed. Friendly staff. Easy on/off highway. Lots of choices included with breakfast. A great small town place to stay between 2 larger cities Santa Barbara and Ventura.

Stayed here on business for a week and had a pleasant stay. The rooms have been newly renovated - new furniture, flooring, granite counter tops, new TV. The breakfast buffet was good, fast and free. Eggs and cinnamon rolls were offered daily, along with a meat option. I would definitely stay here again.

It would not turn on. After 2 calls to the front desk, I finally made progress re-booting the system. Then the volume would not work...

We stayed here on our way home because the Holiday Inn Express' offer such an extensive complimentary breakfast. We were given a newly remodeled room.
