Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AuntyVal Very comfortable
Excellent hotel. So glad we chose to search the internet when planning a short trip to the wine country in the Santa Barbara hinterland. HIE stood out above all the others. Couldn't fault anything.

I cannot find one fault with this hotel. It was nice from the beginning to the end. The rooms were spacious, well kept and very comfortable.
The variety of the breakfast was very nice. Everything was very accessible to our needs. As you can see by my comments, things could not have been better!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by calidreaminMN Nice location, but carpets need cleaning!
We enjoyed most of our stay. The two things that make my review lower are the cleanliness of the rooms. The carpets made the bottom of your feet black, it was gross (so always were shoes in your room if your book). Also, the bathrooms did not have adequate shower curtains, so the floor would get soaked.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by poppie36 Great location
This hotel is perfectly located on the main strip of Solvang. Easy access to restaurants and wine tastings. The hotel bathroom was clean and in good condition. The room itself felt old and a bit unkempt although I believe it was clean. One small window did not let in much light and that window was very dirty.
I would recommend it if you are looking for a convenient location - if you are looking for a modern bright room - this may not be your cup of tea.

I've have been staying at IHG properties for well over 5 years for business travel and, luckily, this is only the second less-than-great experience I have had (along with an old HI property in downtown Fresno). This property is in severe need of an overall makeover and improved wifi connectivity. Kudos to the staff, they were both friendly and efficient. Will not return when back in the Central Coast for business or pleasure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by trooper68 Job well done
This was my second stay at this location, 1st was for business, which impressed me to the point that when it came time for vacation Santa Inez was 1st on my list.
Due to the oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara that happened a week prior to our arrival a lot to the "clean up" crew were staying at the hotel and were somewhat "noisy", a quick call to the front desk remedied the noise situation along with the offer to move me to another room the following morning, which I accepted... but what really surprised me was the room turned into a 3 bedroom suite with a loft, 2 televisions, considerable larger living area and balcony.... The front desk staff went above and beyond to accommodate me which will ensure a 3rd stay with them down the road.
