5 stars for a mid-price hotel. Pleasant area (though next to highway), very clean and functional rooms, nicely decorated. While we were next to the highway, if the windows were closed, the noise was not too bad--did not keep us up. The beds were very comfortable. Breakfast--pretty good for a free continental breakfast (including eggs, bacon, sausage). On the whole,... More

This Holiday Inn has been renovated and all the rooms, halls and lobby have a great modern style. The cleaning crew also did an excellent job while we were here. Everything was spotless and the rooms and halls smelled fresh and clean. I think most of the rooms here have microwaves and mini-fridges. The bathrooms are very nicely renovated and... More

Overall a great stay a couple weekends ago when visiting Santa Barbara. We chose this location because it was about $60/less a night than the downtown Santa Barbara location on State Street and the Carpinteria area looked cute. We will definitely stay here again on our next weekend to Santa Barbara! Pros: 1) Only 10 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara... More

Took a mini with my 3 little boys and my girl...Wonderful quick staff. Had a few too many ants in our bathroom when we arrived and 2 minutes after calling the front desk, wonderful staff was there to spray and clean them up. During check-in, I noticed a few Harley Bikers doing the same. At night time, it was obvious... More

Stayed here one night free on rewards points. Comfortable room, clean, but a bit noisy with doors slamming late at night and early in the morning. The heater unit was quite noisy as well. Comfortable room and bed. Free coffee at the front desk all the time. I was a little surprised that I wasn't welcomed as a frequent guest.... More

Being a regular visitor to Carpinteria somehow I never ended up in the Holiday Inn. This trip was my first experience and I must say I am overall quite satisfied with the result. The hotel is located next to the highway so when you get a room and like to sleep with the window open make sure you get the... More

We've stayed here several times, and always been happy. The most recent stay included our dog, and we were able to get a room right next to the door, which worked out very well. The rooms are large and well set up. The breakfast buffet is basically cereal, yoghurt and toast, but not a full hot meal. They did have... More

Landed in LAX and needed to be in Santa Barbara in the morning. Didn't want Santa Barbara prices so chose this Holiday Inn Express in Carpenteria. Got there pretty late, but still got great service from registration. We were able to park close to our room, which was good, because I needed to rearrange all the luggage from flight-friendly to...

Very nice place, well maintained and clean. Suggest getting front rooms away from 101 It has a pool and spa outside nice strong spa jets. Breakfast was standard but plenty of it. They didn't rush you out at closing time but let you finish at your own pace . Good stuff. All expected mod cons and the staff were friendly... More
