I was simply looking for hotels and every listing it gave me was inaccurate. Such as the one stating there was a hotel in the "area", come to find out it's 40 miles away.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express last weekend. I am a hotel snob and just didn't think it would be that great, BUT it was! The parking was very easy and inexpensive, the staff were very courteous, the room was pristine- very clean and I liked the décor, especially the exposed brick wall. The location is right smack in the middle of downtown Santa Barbara, so you are right in the heartbeat of the city and can walk anywhere. Another plus is that even though you're right in the middle ...view moreof downtown our room was SILENT. It also included a free breakfast downstairs that had a large selection of different foods: eggs, sausage, bacon, various breads, fruit, cereal, pancakes, yogurt, etc. My only complaint is the maid knocked on and opened our door at 8 am, so be sure to have your do not disturb sign on your door handle (we didn't have it out). I will be staying here again.view less

Though we stayed for one night only, we enjoyed out stay here. The room was small, but very clean. The bed was very comfortable - slept like a baby! Bathroom was very clean. Breakfast was very fulfilling! Hotel is close to restaurants and a few blocks walk to the beach. Would definitely stay here again if our travel brings us back to Santa Barbara.

This hotel is in a perfect location, close to the beach and downtown amenities. The hotel staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The room was clean and offered what you needed for a comfortable night stay. Parking is $14 per day... We stayed only one night and parked on the street, it is free on Sunday. Breakfast had a good selection for all diets. I would recommend this hotel and stay again!

The hotel location is very close to Santa Barbara main street. You can walk to lots of good restaurants and the beautiful beach. Also the hotel staff is so friendly. Amy Ho who is a senior employee of this hotel did us lots of help on reservation stuff. The room is comfortable and the breakfast coffee is great.

Hotel is in a perfect location & has a beautiful, old Spanish vibe without loosing the modern conveniences. Meaghan Lannon, Front Desk Manager, was spot on with her advice for sight seeing & esp. for dinner. If you like seafood go to Brophy Bros in the Harbor!! I've had clam chowder all over & their's was hands down the best! Food & drinks were also delicious. The staff at the Holiday Inn were all helpful & friendly, regardless of the shift!

Hard to find. Check well before driving there because address is approximate on Google Maps (2 our GPSs failed). Construction is going on around the hotel (March 2013). We stayed there for 3 nights with my sister and her 2 kids (6 & 1 y.old). Front desk people were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good, but it was overcrowded and we had to wait for a table to seat. Swimming pools are fine especially for kids 2-7 years old. I was surprised on the 2nd day when I gave housekeeper 5...view more $ and asked her to leave extra conditioner in the room she replied "Do you want me to clean the room?!" I said yes. When we came back that night we were surprised again because she did not remove the garbage from the room. So we got an idea that it is unusual for them to clean the rooms while guests are absent. The next morning before we left (around 11 am) we put a sign outside (on the handle) "please change the linens". We got back after 7 pm and our room was untouched. (tips were not collected though). It was too late to complain... so I decided to let front desk know the next day, but she did not ask me anything about my stay. So I decided to write a review here because it's very disappointing. We paid over 420 dollars for 3 nights and our room was not special - 2 queen size beds. I don't think I demand something special, just expected them to clean my room... Definitely will stay at another hotel next time.view less
