Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 383 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A gem in Santa Barbara For the past several years we have found ourselves in Santa Barbara for a variety of reasons and it was recommended by family friends that we try out the Holiday Inn Express on Haley in the downtown area. We did so on our first trip and have never stayed anywhere else. It has been consistently less expensive---in a town know for pricey hotels---and is a real gem. Everything in downtown is walkable with several reliable places to grab a meal within a block or two. The valet parking makes staying here super convenient, the access to and from the freeway really easy. Nice after a long drive. The rooms are always clean and nicely appointed. The staff seems to really care. The included breakfast is minimal but nice to be able to get a cup of coffee or tea in the lobby. There can be a little noise in the hallways but we've never found it interrupted our sleep.All in all I will always recommend this nice little property. June 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Recommendation for local dining We were told of best places to eat. The hotel clerk gave us her personal business card and signed it, and said to give it to the restaurant manager. That restaurant then gave us a $9.00 discount from our dinner bill. June 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HI Santa Barbara is awesome!!! I've stayed 3 times at this hotel and it is always awesome. Great staff, big rooms, proximity to State Street, killer breakfast...everything is fantastic! June 12, 2016
