The hotel and staff were great. Nice comfortable rooms. Large rooms! Sitting area with sleeper sofa and coffee table. Fridge, microwave, free parking, free WIFI! Booked through AAA and got a great rate! Free breakfast, wonderful selection for breakfast. Pool was enjoyable, a little dirty but nothing that stopped us from enjoying! Cleanliness, of all the facilities were kept up.... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on July 23, 2016. We paid a lot...$330 a night, which was really expensive, but I guess the area is expensive (the Motel 6 was like $160 a night). Our room was really nice. It felt like a really nice Hyatt. The bathroom was beautiful, like something out of a home renovation show.... More

Was moving our daughter home from college and needed a room for the night. Rooms in this area are very expensive during the spring months. This room was a great price and included a separate sitting area and a warm breakfast with lots to choose from. Will definitely stay here again.

Our room overlooked the swimming pool with a large family reunion including dozens of young children in progress. Our room was adequate, quiet and comfortable. The hotel, though old, was clean and had that "cared-for" look. The room came with breakfast that was excellent - including everything you could think of from bacon and eggs to fresh fruit, pancakes, sweet... More

I like this hotel well enough. The breakfast is very good and filling (though served on paper plates and with plastic utensils). I used to live a few blocks away and we go back to visit often. Last week, I was staying again with my preteen daughter. The back door from the parking lot was not locking. You did not... More

Our family of five drove from LA to San Francisco over the course of 7 nights. Our first stop was at the Holiday Inn Carpinteria. After a LONG day of sightseeing in LA (arriving LAX at 7:30 am), we drove to Carpinteria late that night so that our next day's travel to Hearst Castle would be more reasonable. It was... More

Saved by Holiday Inn! We used trip Advisor to book a hotel in Ventura. Agoda confirmed our reservation when the hotel was already booked. We drove down to Carpinteria and found this hotel! It was late, we were tired, and the staff was great. After explaining our situation the person at the front desk was able to get us a... More

The staff were wonderful - the pool and hot tub were inviting and our room was very comfortable. Room was good size and updated nicely. I would stay here again. Just a quick note - although this is near the beach, it is not on the beach.

Nice hotel but pretty evident that have no problem kicking up prices due to proximity to Highway 101. Breakfast was less than organized. Room was clean if not a tad small/ Most expensive of our stays from CO to California. Pricier than our Hotel in Carmel.

This hotel has been renovated and we had a very nice suite at a good price. Our room had a nice sitting area too. The hotel is within walking distance of downtown as well as the Bluffs running and walking trail. Great location. Nice breakfast. Friendly staff.
