The pluses: WiFi worked well. I'm not much of a TV watcher, but when I did watch the picture was fine and there were a number of channel selections. The beds were comfortable and the room and bathroom were clean. Most of the people I dealt with were friendly and responsive. The one who wasn't, I'll discuss in a moment....

I stay regularly for grad school session meetings. Very comfortable with very friendly staff and great amenities. Walking distance to downtown Carpinteria for beach, restaurants, shopping, and Farmers Market.

BUYER BEWARE-- DO NOT GET LIVING SOCIAL or any other deals for this property: they do not honor their commitments! I called this evening to make a reservation for February 18-19 and everything was going fine until I mentioned the vouchers I had bought my partner for Christmas. Suddenly the front desk guy tells me that the vouchers are not...

This hotel is beautifully kept. The apples and fruit infused water in the lobby was a nice touch. We had a good stay in general despite of some issues. We stayed with a livingsocial voucher, which offers breakfast for 2 on top of the room, but we weren't offered any vouch at check-in. If it didn't spring to mind later,...

This location is amazing! The hotel is built like a beautiful Spanish villa - includes a serene water fountain in their courtyard garden area. It's the perfect spot to sip coffee and unwind after a long week. I always enjoy my stays here and look forward to future stays.

This place was fine for what it was. The staff was courteous, the lobby was quite nice and the courtyard was lovely. We never went near the pool but it was a little bigger than a large hot tub. The hotel description said it was heated but I can't confirm. They offered free apples in the lobby and fruit infused...

Overall the hotel is pretty nice: good looks and a very reasonable price for what one gets. The rooms have nice little terraces which are shared without any kind of separation between your neighbors, which felt a bit unsafe. I might think there are some better hotels in the neighborhood. We skipped breakfast as it was quite overpriced. The reason...

Close to family. Easy drive to brother's home. I made the reservation in August & this was the only motel in Carpinteria that met my ADA needs. The roll-in shower with seat was excellent although the countertop in sink area was too small. The pocket door to bathroom is a great idea but it wouldn't close.
