We had a great experience here a few years ago, so we decided to stay here again for two days with our two adult sons. Since the last stay, we notice a bit of wear and tear, but it's still a good value for Carpinteria. We love the setting and being just a few minutes away from the beach. The... More

I stayed overnight on a previous trip, and we stayed a week this time. No breakfast, and we didn't try the restaurant, as there are more interesting places nearby (for example, the Worker Bee Cafe). Rooms are functional, clean and comfortable; maid service is good; desk service prompt and considerate. The pool is small and private, behind a wall. Access... More

Booked a last minute room for £72. When we arrived there seemed to be some sort of problem with the booking but soon got rectified by staff who were brilliant. Went to our room which was king size to find almost an apartment! Beautiful open planned room with sofa and massive television and free wifi! Free parking and straight off... More

The room was clean but on the smaller side. The hallway and the lobby smelled a little moldy from the plants outside. Carpinteria offers a great courtyard and balconies to use but the pool and the hot tub are extremely small for a 3 story hotel; the pools holds only 17 people maximum as capacity listed on the wall and...

Took family on a mini vacation in Carpinteria. The best western plus was awesome! Staff was very friendly, rooms very clean and restaurant was good. Had a courtyard room on the first floor. Kids loved it! They played on the turf while my husband and I watched. Good times!!! Will for sure come again😊

My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Plus in Carpinteria, CA, for a little R&R over the 2014 4th of July holiday, and we were very happy with the choice. First, it is easy to get off of the 101/US-1/Pacific Coast Highway, and it makes for a great home base when exploring the fun towns and wine country... More

While the property is very pretty there is a lot of construction going on outside.The staff is not very friendly and if they are busy they do not acknowledge you. We are Platinum Best Western members and when we asked to check out a half hour later, the clerk said "that's the most I can do." We had to check... More

The wife and I attended a local party and needed a place to sleep for a few hours. The front desk clerk/manager was very friendly and the lobby and courtyard were small town charming. We opened the door to the room which had obviously had some upgrades, but it smelled moldy. I noticed some hair on the floor of the... More

We stayed here just before going to LA, the stuff is very friendly and the hotel is clean. The courtyard is very nice, but that's about it. Our kids wanted to go to the pool, but it was so small, it becomes "crowded" after three people are in... not even mentioning the jacuzzi, even way smaller. The best thing about... More

Arriving at the front desk we were greeted by a young woman which we gave our reservation number, she sent us to a room with 2 Queen beds; we had reservations for King. We went back to the desk and waited; we got our room overlooking the courtyard, it was lovely.(room 221) However; the most important part of a hotel... More
