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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

This hotel was in the process of finishing being refurbished. Rooms were attractively decorated with good lighting, comfortable beds and choice of firm/soft pillows. There were good washing and drying facilities. The outdoor heated swimming pool and jacuzzi had comfortable poolside furniture. Complimentary breakfast was as per HI standard. Efficient welcome from reception staff. Usual high service was dented by... More

Our most recent trip to the Carpinteria/Santa Barbara area reminded me that I needed to take a moment to write about this wonderful hotel. Because we have family and friends in the area, our family has stayed at this hotel many times over the years. We have wonderful memories of playing in the pool, relaxing in our freshly cleaned rooms,... More
