Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JscLsc Where was the hospitality????
If you're looking for someone to greet yo and hand you the key, it was fine. If you need information about where you are staying, how to get around? Forget THAT!
I made several requests for servicing of the bathroom, no response. The doors SLAM constantly during the night, waking us. Perhaps a softening of door return or some buffering with door bumpers might help this new facility.
I and my husband are a different style of traveler. We love trying NOT to rent a car, by using public transportation and this was a perfect place: small, train service, walkable beaches. It has an adorable little shuttle service which is very inexpensive that the hotel staff refused to believe existed. Was this because it only came close to the hotel? Is corporate having a bad relationship with the city and wont promote it?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mel1212 Best Holiday Inn Express During Our Spring Break Road Trip 2015
We stayed at 6 HIE properties in California this past April 2015. The Carpinteria property was our absolute favorite. From the pool and hot tub to having breakfast and doing laundry our stay was wonderful for our family of 5. Updated rooms and beautiful property. Would love to stay again if ever we are in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by old frog Wonderful weekend near the beach
We had stayed at this Holiday Inn before and were pleasantly surprised to find the new card entry system, and to find the improvements to the complimentary breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and we had a wonderful weekend. We were also happy to see that the television reception was now HD, and there were more channels available.
