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.

Little rough check in process but after that everything went well. We arrived a little early at 1:30 pm and was told to come back at 3:00 to check in. I have never had that happen before, usually they will check you in but you will not get a room until later when they are ready. We sat in the... More

I spent 4 nights January 8-11, 2014. It was the headquarter hotel for a Motor-sports event held in town. 32 people attended that event. My room was clean and everything worked OK, except the TV. 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... More

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. The room smelled from the new furniture and carpet. We thought it would dissipate if we ran the fan and so we unpacked and settled in. Being tired from the drive we choose not to... More

Came here for a lacrosse tournament at the Polo Grounds only 3 miles away and convenient, easy in and out freeway access still close enough to Santa Barbara; nearby shopping center. Our toilet overflowed but they offered another room. Comfortable beds, nice quick breakfast with protein on the menu. the have bath and body shampoos and conditioners

The first room I was given reeked of smoke despite being a no-smoking room. The second room was fine and quiet, however a friend complained her room had too much noise from above to sleep through the night. If you are allergic to animals I saw no less than half dozen dogs in the hotel. The place was not overly... More

This is by far the worst and the dirtiest HIE I have experienced in my life. First I was not informed of being in a pet room. The carpets were so dirty I had to throw away my socks. DO NOT STAY THERE you would be better off down the street at motel 6

The hotel does exactly what it promises. The rooms are comfortable, large and clean (although about to be totally refurbished), public areas are nice, and the hotel offers access to washing machines and tumble driers (massively appreciated on a short stay with insufficient time to send clothes to the hotel laundry!) The breakfast is a typically HI Express breakfast (fundamentally... More
