We were driving from San Fransisco to Anahiem and decided to stay at Santa Barbara. There are four of us in our party (2 adults two teenagers) We were impressed by the staff, breakfast (breakfast patio included) and room. We took advantage of the free car parking and free bicycle hire and rode around the ocean front on both mornings after breakfast. The location is perfect for access to State St shopping preciinct . We walked everywhere!

It is an older building that has been beautifully refurbished. The bath room was super clean. Only concern from two members in our party was the noise of other guests. As its an older building, its possible to hear the walking around of others above.

Room Tip: If noise of other guests may be an issue, ask for a top floor room.

Nice and clean hotel but not the BEST. Stayed one night at the Holiday Inn Express. Hotel is located in prime spot. Steps away from tons of restaurants and bars.
Check in was SUPER quick and easy. Bathrooms were clean and well stocked. Rooms are a bit small but also clean. Beds are waaaaay too soft but for one night I survived.

Really friendly staff, large room with comfy beds, good selection at breakfast and a superb location in central Santa Barbara.
Had real character in a historic building.
Cannot recommend highly enough and would definitely stay again!

This is the fourth time we have stayed at this hotel. The location is excellent for going to State Street, the beach and there are plenty of excellent restaurants nearby. Kay and her staff are always on hand to take care of your needs and we have always had a lovely room. The breakfast has plenty of choices and lovely fresh coffee. When in Santa Barbara we will always stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor and a corner room

We choose the HIE to stay during our trip in California and we were not expecting five star hotels.
We stayed only one night at the HIE Santa Barbara and for us the location was good, we could walk to the wharf and come back without problems. The hotel itself is very reasonable or good, room with enough space, bathroom ok, the service also good but we hadn´t any problem to test it
Yes the breakfast I don´t like the paper plates and the plastic cutlery .and besides these the breakfast is equal in all the HIE and this is boring. Anyway we have always the possibility to have the breakfast outside.
I am not sorry to had select the HIE Santa Barbara.

Room Tip: We received a room to the parking place and was good.
