Very good location only a short walk to downtown. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Great ocean and mountain views. Good access to the interstate for trip back to airport. When back in the area will definitely stay there again. Thanks for the great memories of the 2014 Paul F. Foster Reunion!!

You can't beat the location, right on the beach, steps from the sand. Nice strand area to walk, jog or ride bikes. The hotel seems a little worn, maybe a slight notch above a motel. Had breakfast at the restuarant and it was your typical hotel type place. A few shady looking folks lurking nearby: on the beach and around... More

The plaza is in a good location. When it comes to staying in any hotel, if the ratings are not all very good to excellent, don't do it. You will likely be disappointed. The lounge/restaurant has nice views & it was very nice to just hang out with drinks. I will also add, my niece & her husband stayed here... More

I reserved my room 6 weeks in advance. I confirmed the reservation two weeks in advance and called they day I was arriving to say that I was coming in late and would not be arriving until 8:30 pm. I was told it wasn't a problem. When we arrived, we couldn't find a place to park. We circled the parking... More

I stay here often when I have to work in Carpinteria. 1) Staff is always friendly and willing to help within their job descriptions (nicer than most in this area). 2) The view and location is pretty amazing. Great views of the ocean and mountain. Close walking/jogging path that is a nice 2.5 mile exercise. 3) Hotel does not have... More

I came to stay at Crowne Plaza Hotel on the weekend of July 12th. It was sunny, warm, relaxing, and just simply perfect! The rooms are nice and very clean.

I was denied a roll away bed even though they has one "secured" all day they decided to give it away when I asked for it again at 10 pm. People at front desk did not seem to care and I was told to sleep on the floor. Not a good experience

Dear. Robynriggs, My apologies for the horrible guest service you endured during your most recent stay. We have a good supply of roll-away beds and should have been able to meet your request and if we could not we should have explained this in a way that was better than to tell you to sleep on the floor.
