We booked this hotel blind, always tricky. Have to say really happy with it. The first impressions are always the best. The lobby is clean and bright, the staff helpful, smiling and knowledgeable and most of all quick. After a long trip following a 12 night shift, total time awake 38 hours. The last thing you need is a slow... More

I stayed here for one night on a business trip and was very impressed with it. The room and spacious and comfortable. It was very quiet and the bed was comfortable. The continental breakfast was really good.

This hotel was booked for a recent business trip by the company that brought me into town. The hotel was clean, the rooms were a good size with plenty of room for both clothing and to work. The cleaning crew was quite efficient and very pleasant. Now this hotel is also located right along a busy highway so the rooms... More

My wife and I enjoyed this hotel. The lobby/hotel grounds were clean, the staff did a great job, the rooms were nice, and the pool area was perfect. And their breakfast was also very good; much better than we expected. The beach was very close and we parked literally just steps away from the beach making it very easy to... More

We stayed at Holiday Inn Express for a summer trip and we really enjoyed our stay. We ordered pizza and the staff was very nice and accommodating to us. The rooms are spacious and clean. We also enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. They have free breakfast with ample amount of food and variety. The service was exceptional.

We booked the bigger room with fridge and microwave. Modern and very comfortable. Nice little outdoor pool and hot tub, good guest laundry and very helpful front desk. Free parking. It backs onto Hwy 101 and in fact our room faced it, but we didn't notice any noise. You can walk to one end of the beach through a private... More

Booked a room last minute for a quick family getaway. Called around 12 to get early check in. Surprised when the girl who answered said our room wasn't ready and that the maids were on lunch and won't be back for an hour! Came at 330 to check in and our room still wasn't ready so we went to the... More

This hotel is near the Carpinteria bluffs nature preserve and the seal sanctuary which is closed to public for now. We enjoyed the 0.06mile walk to the beach. The breakfast wasn't really that good, the bread and pastry section was empty when we ate breakfast at around 7:15am.
