My boyfriend and I needed a getaway trip to the ocean, so we hopped in the car and started driving. We ended up in Santa Barbara and had a wonderful time and many great adventures. Because is was a spur of the moment trip we didn't have time to make reservations at any of the hotels we stayed at. We stayed at Best Western establishments each night of our stay, and were always very happy with our rooms and the hotels in general. The Carpinteria Inn is absolutely lovely and we got a very good price on a room. Customer service was awesome! The gentleman at the front desk went out of his way to assist us. We had to ask for a new room key 3 times due to the first not working, the second getting lost, and the third getting drowned in the hot tub. He was friendly and made no fuss about providing us with new keys each time. The room its self was clean with a nice shower and tub. We had plenty of room to spread out. We loved having french doors opening out onto the balcony. It rained early in the morning and we loved having the doors open and listening to the rain. The balcony overlooks the courtyard, which is absolutely beautiful. The landscaping is superb and the fountains are pretty. There are two chairs on the balcony and my boyfriend and I sat for quite a while just taking in the scenery. The night we arrived we jumped in to the hot tub for a relaxing soak. It is very small. If more than two people want to sit in it I don't think it would be too comfortable. We did notice the pool is on the other side of the hotel, which is a bit odd in my opinion. I like to switch back and forth from tub to pool and was disappointed that I could not do this. That's really my only complaint about this hotel. Breakfast is NOT included in your stay, so keep this in mind. There is a cafe in the third floor that has decent food for good prices. The service was good and if you are a tea drinker the tea selection is very good. We sat next to the windows and watched the rain. It was very relaxing. All in all a really great place to stay with great customer service. ******As a side note, if you have time, check out the beach in Carpinteria. Take a walk down the beach to the South and look for the tar oozing out of the hill side. We also found some great shells at the beach.
