Nice view to the harbor. God value for the money. Pool available at the neighbor hotel, which can be reach by a small path or bridge. Fee for parking. Found a restaurant in the harbor area (2 min. drive) with a lobster offer (Wednesday) and nice views.

Stayed here to be close to the dive boat for an early start next day. The hotel feels very corporate, the elevator is downright scary, the saving grace was the sunset and balcony where you can enjoy take out fish and chips from Adriane's. Staff all very friendly, and an edible hotel breakfast. Great if you have stuff to do... More

Great place for a short stay. Harbor view, 3rd floor room (357). Bed very comfortable. Exceptionally quiet. No traffic noise since we overlooked the harbor. Only sound during the early morning hours were the barking seals in the background! Breakfast was OK...nothing special. I would definitely stay here again

This hotel is in need of serious upgrades . The room was big but we never felt comfortable because it's outdated and dirty and dingy . I wouldn't walk around without socks and kept my clothes off the floor. It also looks like someone tried to break into the bathroom at one time and the installed bar to keep the... More

Helpful and friendly front desk staff (Rosemary and Sonja). Pay parking ($10+tax/day) for self-park open lot. Restaurant, bar, and exercise room in 4-Seasons hotel next door accessible by walkway over street. Computer... More

This hotel offers balcony rooms over looking the marina if you stay on the back side. A fairly good spread for breakfast. I stayed here as my motorcycle club stayed in the Four points by Sheraton which is directly next door.

Stayed here May 2015 primarily for a business trip, but with a weekend extension for pleasure. Good sized, comfortable room with great view over marina. Staff were friendly and standard of housekeeping was good. Good selection of restaurants a pleasant 15-20 minute walk away around the marina. My only negative comment would be that there is no bar or restaurant... More

This is my favorite hotel in the area. The rates are reasonable, it is quiet, and you get a view of the harbor and the sunset from your balcony (ask for a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor). There is also a breakfast with several options that comes with the price of the room. Santa Barbara is half an... More

The employees of this Holiday Inn Express do make a difference by their friendly helpfulness. The property is walking distance (a long stroll through the marina along the waterfront) to the harbor shops and restaurants. The fitness center shown is not on site but you must walk outside to the neighboring hotel to use it. So instead, walk down to... More

It was comfortable and basic hotel, could come again. We stayed there 1 night during the road trip from San Diego to San Francisco 2010. Room was clean and all in it what we expected. Anything to say about breakfast, we left so early. Parking was easy and lot of places to park.
