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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dlmiller457 Two Nights in Carpinteria
My husband and I recently were in town to see a concert in Santa Barbara. The hotel offers good value. Two issues I had with the hotel was the slow internet and the hot food section of the buffet breakfast needed more attention. You can't just put food out, leave it for hours, and expect people to enjoy it. Other than that, a good place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Digema A Great Week-end Getaway
The Holiday Inn Express more than exceeded our expectations, From the moment we walked into the cheerful lobby, we knew we had done a good job researching hotels in Carpinteria. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was just the right size for my daughter, my wife, and I, the beds were comfortable, and the swimming pool was terrific. The best part out of all these good parts was the complimentary breakfast! There was an amazing array of very good food, and having a good breakfast in a great room started each day off in just the right way. There is no question that we will return in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kit! Great Rest Spot along the Coast
We were driving up Hwy. 1 with no particular goal in mind. About an hour from Carpenteria we checked to see if there was an HIE there. We're so glad we did. Reservations were made thru central reservations, but locally, they did everything right. The room was lovely, there were plenty of places to charge our depleted devices, the common areas were very nice, and everything was very clean. We'd never been to Carpenteria, so we had a nice time wandering around town, stopping at S'bux, etc.
