We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rooms were updated, clean and comfortable. I always prefer to be beachfront, but for the price, this was great. Breakfast was free and adequate.

This was a cool little place that exceeded our expectations! The room was nice, well-appointed and comfortable. It had a little B&B feel to it. This was our first stop in a late autumn drive up the coast. The lobby had dozens of little cards with Santa Barbara dining options that we found extremely helpful. The hotel was a little... More

My girlfriend booked us a night here in January and it was a pleasant surprise to find a flat screen HD tv that looked to be about 47 inches in the room. We were wowed with the mini fridge, soft sheets, and of course the TV. Considering she spent much less than $100.00 for the room it was a great... More

I stayed here 1 night for business trip up in Carpinteria. I found the room to be really clean and comfortable. The bed was really comfortable. Hotel provides full digital cable with a 32-inch flat screen. The hotel even has High Definition programming which is great. Most hotels have flat screens but the cable signal is still standard definition. Room... More

Pleasantly surprised - traveling to San Diego with my dog I needed a pet-friendly hotel. I was given a nice suite close to the pool - which was heated in December. Staff was helpful, room was clean, well supplied. Extra bonus: great sunrise. I'll stay there again.

I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Carpinteria over the Thanksgiving weekend for a little weekend getaway. The room was pretty good. We had a double bed room with a bigscreen TV, Cable, and free WiFi access. Being that we were new to the area, the free wireless access really helped. We just opened up our laptop and explored...

This hotel was a disgrace. I am a loyalty club member and have stayed in numerous Intercontinentals and Holiday Inns throughout the world. This hotel was in a class of its own. The people in reception were neither friendly nor helpful. They made little effort to obtain information for visitors. Mostly they could not be bothered. The phone in our... More

Such a beautiful clean town!! We had never heard of the town, but found it to be a good place to stop for the night. Can't complain about our BIG room, sofa, large TV, great breakfast, crisp clean bedding and towels, in addition to being pet friendly. The only negative thought we had was with the people at the front... More

I stayed at this hotel last year and decided to return this year. Still a great buy in the area. Breakfast had more variety and the room had a new flat screen LCD TV. Housekeeping was good. This is a good place to stay in the area. Cheaper than Santa Barbara, yet only about 10-15 minutes away on the freeway.... More

My family of four came up from Glendora for Spring Break (I hear summers are pretty crowded here on wk ends), and very much enjoyed our stay here. Had never heard of Carp before, but this hotel was the closest I could get to Santa Barbara on short notice. We ended up spending almost all of our time here in... More
