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

Nice hotel situated between Santa Barbara and Ventura. Has a nice pool and when we were there there were many children staying too. Guess it's family friendly as well. Breakfast was standard enough to fill you nicely but nothing to shout about. Liked the pancake machine. Will stay again.

Good experience all along. From reservation to check out, everything went smoothly. Never been disappointed at an HIE. Good breakfast, clean and comfortable accommodations and just 5 mins from the heart of town and ocean.

First time staying here and I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean and spacious. (Great for toddlers and small children) The woman behind the front desk was friendly and very accommodating. The property was clean and well kept. Overall it's a great hotel and I prefer this place over the other 3-star Carp hotel (BW) that's right down the... More

Loved this hotel except the fact the bathroom door didnt stay open. Loved the pool and the room breakfast was good. Little extras like disposable plates cups and cutlery were great. I only stayed one night but express checkout was great and i would stay there again.

I did not expect much when booking this hotel but was pleasantly suprised. Our room had recently been updated and was very clean. There was a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker in the room. There were several very nice outdoor seating areas. The breakfast area was a decent size and had the basics. It was a pleasant stay.

$200/night for suite that sleeps 4 with AAA discount. Nice hotels are expensive here, but this is the best in the area for a decent price. There were four of us and we booked the 2-bed suite, which also had a pull-out couch. Room was clean and spacious, with plenty of room to hold all of our luggage and toiletries.... More
